How is 5G Technology Shaping the Communication Trends?

Oct 31, 2017

Mobile technology has come a long way from facilitating communication to being an integral part of our lives. Mobile devices are used as a medium for content consumption and communication. However, that scenario is soon going to change with the much-hyped 5G technology. The 5G technology is not just an upgrade over 4G; it promises much more than just an upgrade. Over 1000 times increased data volume, five times reduced latency, up to 100 times faster data transfer speed, up to 100 times more connected devices, and 100% connectivity are some of the widely supported goals of 5G.

Top Three Communication Trends in 5G Technology

5G and IoT Technology

IoT technology is dependent on the interconnectedness of multiple devices on one platform, and 5G technology provides just the right base for its success. Imagine getting notification form smart home cameras on your phone when a package is delivered to your doorstep. That’s precisely the kind of thing IoT and 5G technology together can achieve. 5G IoT devices will use narrow bandwidth to support thousands of things per cell or device, offer prolonged battery life, and provide deep coverage in challenging areas at a meager cost.

VR/AR Technology and 5G

VR and AR technologies are poised to be the ideal application for 5G due to its increased throughput, data transfer speed, and efficiency. The increasing popularity of AR and VR technologies is due to their ability to augment the user experience in activities such as online gaming, PlayStation, autonomous driving, and AR experience with the real environment.

Cloud Computing and 5G

The 5G technology will largely benefit the cloud computing industry along with various as-a-service models. The evolution of technology is characterized by an exponential growth in traffic that can keep up with the demands of scaling possibilities in the mobile network. Extremely high transmission rates allow all infrastructure and storage to be shifted to the cloud. For instance, from a consumer point of view this could mean that you would be able to store all the high-quality content and 4K videos on the cloud and access it later without latency and performance issues.
