The development of telecommunication has changed the way we communicate. Now, the life seems running faster with more excitement. From the first generation of telecommunication to the current fourth generation, we have seen a lot. We are about the see the 5G soon.
Talking about the mobile telecommunication, we are currently running in the fourth generation, AKA 4G. The 4G communication system is pretty fast, isn’t it?
If so, what do you think of Fifth Generation (5G) telecommunication? Experts say the 5G connectivity will deliver the data up to 200 times faster than current 4G.
Few companies are currently working on the fifth generation telecommunication field. But, we do not know how far they have reached. But, South Korean company “Samsung” seems very near. The Samsung is working in 5G since 2011.
Samsung electronics claimed that using the ultra-high broadcast frequencies, it can deliver the transfer rate 200 times faster than the current one.
“By utilizing ultra-high broadcast frequencies, 5G will deliver data transfer speeds that are up to 200 times faster than current 4G networks, even in highly dense locations.”
Video posted by Samsung Newsroom explains what we could do with the Fifth Generation of Telecommunication. 5G will make it possible to enjoy rich 4K video and more immersive virtual and augmented reality experiences. Imagine being able to take in a front-row concert experience from the comfort of your living room, spark your child’s curiosity with immersive augmented reality edutainment, or simply conference with colleagues through crystal clear video. 5G technology makes it possible to seamlessly facilitate such data-heavy tasks while also opening the door for greater automation in more aspects of daily life, allowing us to streamline everything from the Internet of Things (IoT) and self-driving cars to robotics.”
Though the broadcast range is limited, the Samsung overcame it by using their proprietary technology called Beam Forming technology. Through MU-MIMO technology which allows data transfer through multiple devices and multi-cell handover technology helps to stay connected even when you are on move.
According to Samsung, “By ushering in the 5G era, leading research to advance its commercialization and explore its applications in communications and IoT, Samsung is helping to create the world where your wildest imaginations can come true”.
5G seems very interesting, doesn’t it? However, there is still time for 5G to get out in the market. Another good (late) news is NTC is going to start 4G service from 1st January 2017.
