The commercial 5G technology is coming

  5th generation mobile networks or 5th generation wireless systems, abbreviated 5G, are the proposed next telecommunications standards beyond the current 4G/IMT-Advanced standards, operating in the millimeter wave bands (28, 38, and 60 GHz).

5G technology is powering the future

  The standards of 5G technology are currently being standardized by international regulatory agencies like IEEE, IET, ITU, and FCC. The commercial 5G technology is expected to launch by 2020 world-wide. South Korea launched 5G for the first time at the 2018 Winter Olympics, PyeongChang. KT, an official telecommunications partner of the PyeongChang Olympics, has set its sights on commercializing 5G by early 2019, which would be first in the hard-fought competition among global telecom firms. The 2018 Winter Olympics showcased 5G technology, engineered by South Korean largest telecom carrier KT partnered with Samsung, Intel and Ericsson AB.

  5G planning aims at higher capacity than current 4G, allowing a higher density of mobile broadband users, and supporting device-to-device, more reliable, and massive machine communications.[6] 5G research and development also aims at lower latency than 4G equipment and lower battery consumption, for better implementation of the Internet of things. There is currently no standard for 5G deployments.

  The Next Generation Mobile Networks defines the following requirements that a 5G standard should fulfill:

  • Data rates of tens of megabits per second for tens of thousands of users
  • Data rates of 100 megabits per second for metropolitan areas
  • 1 Gb per second simultaneously to many workers on the same office floor
  • Several hundreds of thousands of simultaneous connections for wireless sensors
  • Spectral efficiency significantly enhanced compared to 4G
  • Coverage improved
  • Signaling efficiency enhanced
  • Latency reduced significantly compared to LTE.

  In addition to providing simply faster speeds, they predict that 5G networks also will need to meet new use cases, such as the Internet of Things (internet connected devices), as well as broadcast-like services and lifeline communication in times of natural disaster. Carriers, chipmakers, OEMS and OSATs, such as Advanced Semiconductor Engineering (ASE) and Amkor Technology, Inc., have been preparing for this next-generation (5G) wireless standard, as mobile systems and base stations will require new and faster application processors, basebands and RF devices.

  Although updated standards that define capabilities beyond those defined in the current 4G standards are under consideration, those new capabilities have been grouped under the current ITU-T 4G standards. The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approved the spectrum for 5G, including the 28 GHz, 37 GHz and 39 GHz bands.

  As of 2017, development of 5G is being led by several companies, including Samsung, Intel, Nokia, Huawei, Ericsson, ZTE and others.

5G is the main role in Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018

  5G is already on its way to commercial success, as Ericsson president and CEO Börje Ekholm declared the technology “open for business” during a media briefing at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona on Monday.
