On the Road to 5G Adoption: The Latest News in 2021

Latest news of 5G adoption in 2021

5G is the 5th generation mobile network. It is a new global wireless standard after 1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G networks. 5G enables a new kind of network that is designed to connect virtually everyone and everything including machines, objects, and devices. 5G wireless technology is meant to deliver higher multi-Gbps peak data speeds, ultra-low latency, more reliability, massive network capacity, increased availability, and a more uniform user experience to more users. Higher performance and improved efficiency empower new user experiences and connect new industries.

5G is the next generation of wireless technology and represents a massive leap forward for wireless mobile communications. Its speed is close to 10 times faster than the networks we’re typically used to. The goal of 5G is to support massive density, improve bandwidth, and provide the lowest latency in history. It can support massive density and huge bandwidth improvements and provide lower latency than anything that has been developed before. This new wave of wireless communication has been under development for the last decade, proving the complexity and importance of the task at hand. The pandemic has put a spotlight on the importance of smartphones and connectivity from anywhere, driving an accelerated demand for 5G. Work-from-home culture has increased data traffic by 50% to 100%, according to Verizon. These increases were driven by Zoom meetings and streaming media entertainment as well as video games.

Processing power is also a major driver in the 5G rollout. Many existing cellular devices don’t have built-in 5G functionality. ROBO index member Qualcomm debuted its Snapdragon 480 processor and is expected to provide low-cost 5G phones, which will propel the rapid transition to 5G in many markets around the world. As this technology continues to grow more mainstream, smart investors should consider getting in early as companies continue to fund these initiatives. 5G wavelengths are entirely safe and have been tested for nearly two decades. The shorter towers mean many more devices can be connected to one cell tower at once. 5G offers network connection speeds that will be substantially higher than 4G connections, supporting frequencies of up to around 50 GHz versus the 1-3 GHz that is available today.

Since 5G promises low latency and the ability to connect many smart devices seamlessly, it will improve our digital experience and even provide new experiences. This is because ultrafast speeds and data transferring will be available at the edge of the network, as well as at the edge computing level. This is fueling innovation as it will accelerate computing and processing power. In the future, there can be personal 5G transmitters in our homes to provide direct communication with our smart devices like robotic vacuum cleaners and smart appliances. Higher-resolution video and bandwidth mean better cloud gaming experiences. THNQ index member Electronic Arts could get a boost from cloud-based gaming as the pioneer in multiplayer streaming. According to ABI Research, 5G will contribute nearly $2 billion in revenue to cloud gaming by 2024. 5G wireless can also play a big role in enterprise technology. Augmented reality solutions by THNQ index member PTC are empowering manufacturers to achieve their digital manufacturing goals. Powered with 5G, repair technicians can digitally connect with experts from machinery manufacturers using the Vuforia augmented reality app to carry out service repairs with minimal effort.
