What is 5G?

“5G” actually refers to an industry-standard, namely “the fifth-generation mobile communication technology standard”.


How is the 5G standard born, and who makes it?

5G is developed by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (referred to as 3GPP), responsible for making. 3GPP is a standardized institution. Currently, its members include relevant industry bodies in China, Europe, Japan, Korea, and North America.


So what are the benefits and characteristics of 5G?

The benefits of 5G are reflected in its three application scenarios: enhanced mobile broadband, ultra-reliable low latency, and massive machine-like communications. In other words, 5G can bring users higher bandwidth rates, lower and more reliable delays, and larger capacity network connections.


How fast can the 5G network speed be?

5G's enhanced mobile broadband application scenario means faster network speeds, it is reported that theoretically speaking, 5G network speed will be 100 times or more of 4G, and the peak of future 5G network can reach up to 20Gb per second. Of course, this also requires mobile phones, computers, storage devices, etc. to support such speeds, and it takes a certain amount of time to implement them.


The three major application scenarios of 5G bring not only the improvement of the network speed, but also the application of wireless communication to more places, so that many technologies that have stayed in the theoretical stage or have just started because of the limited conditions have been widely used, such as smart city, smart home, drone, augmented reality, virtual reality, internet of things, etc. 5G will bring more convenience and fun to people's lives.
