The 5th generation of wireless technology promises more than just a faster network. It will help redefine the network, establishing a new global wireless standard for speed, throughput and bandwidth. A 5G network builds a bridge to the future.
Let’s see some previous generation of wireless network.
1G: The first analog cell phones enter the world.
2G: New features like SMS and voicemail come to mobile handsets.
3G: Higher data transfer rates enable mobile web browsing, image sharing and GPS location-tracking.
4G: Broadband delivers deep web functionality to our smartphones.
What is 5G Network?
5G is the fifth generation of wireless technology. But users will know it as one of the fastest, most robust technologies the world has ever seen.That means quicker downloads, much lower lag and a significant impact on how we live, work and play.
The connectivity benefits of 5G are expected to make businesses more efficient andgive consumers access to more information faster than ever before. Connected cars, smart communities, industrial IoT, immersive education—they all will rely on 5G networks.
“In the future, everything is going to be transformed by 5G,” says Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg. “The pace of technological change in decades past has been fast. The only thing we know for sure is that, in the future, it’s going to be even faster. We’re going to experience a technological shift that will transform people, businesses and society as a whole.”
Verizon is working tirelessly to roll out 5G on a massive scale. But what exactly is 5G How does it work? How fast is it, really? And how will it change people’s lives? We answer those questions, and more, below.
Availability Of 5G Network.
5G Ultra Wideband is currently available in parts of 55 cities, from San Diego
to New York City, Denver to D.C.
In addition to these mobile markets, Verizon continues to increase coverage for 5G Home Internet, the first 5G-powered residential broadband service.
As part of our 5G Home Internet service, Verizon is offering the Amazon Smart Home Bundle, including the Amazon Echo Show 5, Ring Stick Up cam battery and more, a $250+ value1. Verizon 5G Home customers also receive one free month of YouTube TV, with 85-plus live TV channels ($64.99/month).
How fast is 5G Ultra Wide-band?
5G Ultra Wideband represents a massive up scaling of network technology. It will provide data transfer rates faster than a blink of an eye, high bandwidth and greater opportunities for connectivity.
One way to quantify the difference is in terms of outright speed. Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband network has the potential to deliver speeds many times faster than Verizon current 4G network.
“5G Ultra Wideband isn’t just another iteration of wireless innovation,” he says. “Just as the next generation of the television industry reinvented content based on the unique properties of the medium itself, the potential of the fifth generation of wireless technology demands that we fundamentally rethink what can be done on a wireless platform.”
Thanks to its greater data transfer speeds, 5G Ultra Wideband will eventually allow even more technology to connect, enabling the Internet of Things on a truly massive scale. Today, there are some 14.2 billion connected “things” in use, and that number is expected to grow to more than 55 billion by 2025.
5G Ultra Wideband will also help user in a new era of connection for businesses. The world’s first mobile edge compute (MEC) platform with Amazon Web Services (AWS) Wavelength, combines Verizon’s market leading 5G network with the industry-leading cloud expertise of AWS, enabling developers and enterprise customers to create large-scale, latency sensitive applications utilizing edge cloud computing resources.
Verizon built its own 5G Ultra Wideband technology to accelerate testing and drive the development of a worldwide 5G standard.
