Why 5G is different from 4G?


Speed can be a matter of death or survival in the natural world. If Cheetah wasn’t fast enough to catch its prey he would not be able to get food for his survival. Same as that for black buck who needs speed to save his life from animals who need prey to kill, eat and feed on.

In wireless Communication world, speed, latency and bandwidth is the matter of success.

5G Vs 4G

5G assures mobile data speeds that far overtakes the fastest home broadband network currently within the range of public.

Speed:  5G encourages to provide speeds which will range from ~50 Mbit/s to over 10 gigabit/s. The fastest 5G is known as mmWave. 5G is set to be as much as 100 times faster than 4G

Low latency is a key differentiator between 4G and 5G:  Latency is the time that passes from the moment information is sent from a device until it can be used by the receiver. Reduced latency means that you’d be able to use your mobile device connection as a replacement for your cable modem and Wi-Fi. Additionally, you’d be able to download and upload files quickly and easily, without having to worry about the network or phone suddenly crashing. You’d also be able to watch a 4K video almost straight away without having to experience any buffering time.

5G will be able to fix bandwidth issues: Currently, there are so many different devices connected to 3G and 4G networks that they don’t have the infrastructure to cope effectively. 5G will be able to handle current devices and emerging technologies such as driverless cars and connected home products.
