5G Network Analysis
Tomorrow’s 5G Networks and what the Future May Look Like in a 5G World.
The introduction of 5G network technology has the capacity to revolutionize the way we communicate with one another and consume media. 5G technology will increase current mobile speeds by up to 10x.
Even more impressively, 5G will have the capacity to be offered as a home internet service. Consumers will finally have an alternative to traditional WiFi. Furthermore, many customers will have two high-speed internet options for the very first time. Let’s take a look at some of the changes that 5G technology will bring to consumers and businesses alike.
The 5G Network and the Consumer of Tomorrow
For your average consumer, the 5G network will usher in a time of unprecedented interconnections. Users will no longer have to rely on stationary WiFi networks to complete a video call and can stream HD videos on-the-go. Gamers can play massively multiplayer online games (MMO) with little lag and high-quality graphics.
Video games may be one of the most important beneficiaries of 5G network technology. Players will be able to connect their consoles to 5G networks rather than relying on old-fashioned WiFi.
Controllers will become more reactive as 5G technology eliminates the lag between pressing a button and seeing the action on-screen. In addition, one of the most promising developments is the introduction of cloud-based games.
Future-generation consoles are predicted to be “half as big as the one before.” Gamers will no longer download software onto their console, but can stream the software directly from a remote server. Expect Playstation Now to become a viable option, with competitors on the horizon.
How Will a 5G Network Impact the Transportation Industry?
One of the most industries most ripe for disruption from the 5G Network is the transportation industry. Currently, the transportation industry nearly in the dark ages in terms of technology.
Many companies are starting to use smart vehicles and computers in their freight trucks and trains. However, most truckers and transportation companies still rely on old-fashioned systems to communicate with one another.
The low latency and overall high capacity of 5G networks will transform the transportation industry. Vehicles will have the ability to relay signals to one another and with common infrastructure.
Commercial and private vehicles will receive notifications of construction projects, accidents, and more. Logistics companies will be able to track vehicle locations, speed, and fuel efficiencies from a central command center. Public transportation networks can even anticipate major events and react to bottlenecks in real-time.
5g technology will also allow the autonomous cars to finally hit the market. By increasing data speeds and reducing latency, autonomous cars will soon meet safety standards.
Larger amounts of data will be processed per second, allowing these cars to avoid obstacles. Furthermore, these cars will be able to communicate with government agencies, digital maps, and weather services with ease. Think about how much more you can accomplish once your daily commute becomes chauffeured. (continued on Page 2)
