5G Cell Phone Technology

Network, 5G, The Internet, Technology, Free

5G is short for “5th Generation Mobile Network” and this is the next installation for global wireless standards after 1G, 2G, 3G and 4G technologies.

5G cell phone technologies have enabled a cutting edge network that can connect virtually everyone with everything including devices, objects and machines. 5G was already being used in different parts of the world during early 2019. In 2020, many other countries are expected to provide 5G access to their population.

How Does 5G Work?

5G utilizes OFDM technology (Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing), which is a method of modulating digital signals across a variety of channels in order to reduce interferences. In addition to this, 5G also makes use of wider bandwidth technologies such as mmWave and sub-6 GHz.

Quite like 4G, 5G’s OFDM technology operates on similar mobile networking principles. Still, the 5G NR air interface has the ability to enhance OFDM to produce higher degrees of scalability and flexibility. In simpler words, 5G could provide access to more people and objects pertaining to a large variety of use cases.

How Is It Different From Previous Network Technologies?

Even though 1G, 2G, 3G and 4G inspired the creation of 5G, the latter is able to provide more connectivity than ever experienced before by network users.

5G not only has a more efficient air interface, but it is more unified and has an extended capacity to allow for next-gen user experiences. Additionally, 5G will also be able to deliver new deployment models and empower new services with negligible latency, superior reliability and high speed connectivity.

5G Applications

5G was specifically designed to not only deliver better and faster mobile broadband services as compared to 4G LTE, but also to broaden its reach into new areas of service such as connecting to the IoT or mission-critical communications. It is safe to say that 5G will make an impact on every industry, including digitized logistics, precision agriculture, remote healthcare, and many others.

Wi-Fi: Exploring the Digital Era

The onset of a digital era has brought about a myriad of inventions. One of the most commonly used technologies is the Wi-Fi. While millions of people use Wi-Fi every day, we can bet there is little knowledge about what exactly it is and how it works. Upending traditional networking methods, Wi-Fi carries a whopping 60% of internet traffic from all over the world.  

What is Wi-Fi?

 Wi-Fi stands for wireless fidelity. As the name suggests, it provides a wireless internet connection that uses radio frequencies to transmit signals between devices. Also known as Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN), Wi-Fi is actually a simpler term for its technical name, IEEE 801.11 technology.

How does it Work?

The main purpose of a Wi-Fi network is to provide connectivity to all devices connected to it. As mentioned above, Wi-Fi uses radio waves to operate. Radio waves are a type of electromagnetic radiation. Wi-Fi transmits and receives these radio waves in the Gigahertz range.

Wi-Fi requires a frequency of 2.4 Ghz to 5Ghz to perform optimally. There are a whole lot of invisible radio waves working to allow you to stream your favorite show with ease.

Benefits of Wi-Fi

Wireless networking is a burgeoning trend these days, owing to its convenience. One of the most obvious benefits of Wi-Fi is its wireless quality, rendering it a mobile way to stay connected, anywhere you may be.

Wi-Fi connections are affordable and easy to set, which explains why every household will most likely have a working Wi-Fi connection.

Wi-Fi is a popular choice as it ensures security. To avoid random people from using your personal connection, you can set a password to unlock WPA2, or Wi-Fi Protected Access. If you want to allow someone to connect to your Wi-Fi, you may open your ‘hotspot’,

Among the innumerable technological advances, Wi-Fi is undoubtedly one of the most useful inventions, allowing seamless connectivity.
