5G is based on the new methodology. It is called OFDM – Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing. OFDM is an advanced technology for data transmission with reduced interference. This technology will provide more access to people with higher speed & less interference. 

The Evolution

1G – Analog Cell Phones

2G – SMS services Introduced

3G – Web Browsing made possible on mobile

4G – LTE technology which boosted mobile data speed

5G – Better connectivity to heavy machines & big devices

The Power of 5G 

5G is capable to perform many things. It is expected that 5G will give us the whole new experience is connectivity. It is all about better connectivity. Currently, if we are in a location where multiple people are using mobile data, we might see a reduction in our mobile data speed. It aims to reduce this problem with high power connectivity.

5G technologies will open up many opportunities for health & safety. This pandemic has made everyone to work online & we faced many challenges of poor connectivity. Technologies like this will ensure that this connectivity issue is no more & even if everything is online, there will not be any problem.

The 5G technology will make it easy to connect to more devices without any issues & therefore we can use more safety devices such as CCTV cameras, sensors, night vision, biometric devices & other such devices altogether in real-time.

So, we are very much excited and waiting to use this technology. Let us know what do you think of this technology & if you have anything to add on please feel free to share with us.
