5G has finally arrived with a lot of promise in terms of speed and capacity. This has also given rise to another hot topic for discussion – what does the future hold for 5G and why would you and I should be excited about it? We are all aware of the fact that 2G was for voice and then 3G conquered with offerings for data and Voice, 4G came in with the promise of broadband, so 5G has got something new to offer. Even the best of the engineers around the world are unsure about what 5G has to offer but here is list of 5 reasons why we should be excited about 5G:
1. Witness the Olympics 5G mode
Well, after the Sochi Olympics, we are eagerly waiting for the Winter Olympics at Pyeongchang (2018) and Tokyo Olympics (2020). Both the nations are doing major works on 5G innovation and we can expect to see some real good things at both these Olympic events. You and I can expect some innovations like downloading massive videos in one second and hologram of the participants. We can even expect to see 3D images of competitors and venues. Instant translation glasses can also be expected that would enable everyone to read Japanese within seconds. Facial recognition glasses might be distributed among crowds, which would enable them to identify their fellow countrymen.
2. The Internet of Things
5G will definitely support Internet of Things because it offers the requisite speed to enable one machine to interact with another seamlessly. According to a survey, by the year 2018 mobile data traffic will increase 11 times from the present levels and to make machine to machine communication a reality. Finally.
3. Interconnected Car Networks
It has all begun with the introduction of Google driverless car and if this has to gain popularity, 5G has to be the driving factor. 5G will come loaded with the extra capacity one would need to push forward the driverless car innovation. 5G is expected to differentiate between different types of uses of the network like traffic navigation, communication, infotainment, device syncing etc. For instance, if your car is trying to change lanes, you do not expect the process to be hampered just because your kid is trying to make a hands free call in the backseat.
4. Mobile Healthcare
We have already stepped into an era where we are accessing real-time health data from our mobile devices. This is fast turning out to be a game-changer in the health industry as more and more companies are jumping into the race to create wearable devices that would provide real time health data to users. Now for these devices to offer the real deal, 5G definitely has to be the key driving force.
5. Smarter Power Source For Mobile Devices
5G will enable mobile devices to be charged from any device that would run on battery. For instance, there is a product called Tethercell that can turn any battery operated device into a Bluetooth-enabled device. Thus, we will able to remotely control the battery operated devices that would draw charge from other devices.
