5G: The future of
connectivity
By transmitting data through millimeter waves and a large number of small cell stations, 5G can deliver download speeds of up to 20Gbps, which is 10x faster than 4G LTE networks.1 Latency will also be reduced significantly, from 50 milliseconds of our current networks to just 1 millisecond, allowing instant data transfer to and from mobile devices.

5G spectrums

A new wave of

transformation
As mobile devices are now an indispensable part of our lives, radio frequencies current networks rely on are also reaching their limits. Transmitting more data using the same frequencies means slower service and unstable connections. By opening up higher radio frequencies between 24GHz and 100GHz for connected devices, also known as mmWave, 5G will create more room within the mobile ecosystem. Expanding the radio frequency spectrum for mobile devices will allow network speed and capacity to increase significantly.

5G technologies

The road to 5G
In addition to expanding radio frequencies for connected devices, 5G networks also constitutes a whole host of cutting-edge technologies that aim to enhance its accuracy and capacity. To widen coverage and stability of 5G networks, beamforming and beam steering technology controls antennas and focus signals in one direction. This also ensures that the radio frequencies can travel further with less interference. Massive MIMO, which stands for multi-input, multi-output, significantly increases the number of antennas on a radio to boost the overall capacity of the mobile networks. This will enable cellular stations to serve more users simultaneously. Quadrature Amplitude Modulation, or QAM, meanwhile, enables radio waves to transmit more data at the same time, further enhancing the efficiency of 5G mobile networks.

5G benefits

The promises of 5G
The arrival of 5G will revolutionize three core aspects of mobile communication – speed, reliability, and connectivity. Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) will offer exceptionally fast data speed between 100Mbps to 20Gbps per user. To put this in context, downloading a 15GB HD movie will take just six seconds on a 5G network.2 This will open new possibilities for services that require high bandwidth, such as VR and AR, as well as seamless HD streaming. 5G will also enable Ultra Reliable and Low Latency Communications (URLLC), meaning that services that require low latency and prompt responses, including autonomous vehicles and interactive gaming, will become a reality. Massive Machine-Type Communications (mMTC), which aims to create a hyper-connected environment for IoT devices, will further spur the growth of digitization in all aspects of our lives.

5G life

Life in the fast lane
5G will fundamentally reshape the role of mobile devices in our lives. Powered by enhanced network speed, AR, VR and cloud gaming will give users more freedom to embark on previously unimaginable adventures and journeys. 5G also provides a fertile ground for a new generation of digital tools that will unleash our creativity. In addition, 5G-enabled AI assistants and wearables will transform the way we approach work, health, and our everyday routines.
