Progress The wireless industry from time to time continues to develop cellular communication standards that are capable of transmitting more data. The first generation retroactively called 1G was born into a full analog system for transmitting voice, until finally it continued to develop in the 4G generation that is currently used by the world community. Then what about the fifth generation technology or 5G?.
In its development, cellular communication standards continue to develop according to the needs of the global community, until now it has reached the fifth generation or 5G. This generation is the latest generation of standards used to be able to transmit data via radio waves in large and fast.
The first generation or 1G is a fully analog system for transmitting via voice. Meanwhile in the development standard, the second generation or 2G is dedicated to transmitting voice and data digitally. The third generation technology or 3G was born in 2000 and 4G followed a decade later, in 2010.
There are many fundamental changes as a development from the previous generation which was able to increase the data rate from 200 kilobits per second to hundreds of megabits per second. Here are some facts that developed with the emergence of fifth generation technology or 5G which is now becoming available in Indonesia.
Speed Up To 10 Gigabits per Second
In early 2020, the world began to swing with 5G technology which is predicted to be able to increase transmission speeds up to 10 gigabits per second. Various trials have been carried out in developed countries, which allow the birth of a technology that is expected to be able to send and receive data very quickly. So that it is expected to be able to open doors of opportunity for virtual reality and augmented reality systems, as well as automation.
Helping the Automotive Industry
Automated cars are currently being developed by major industries in the world. Where with 5G technology is expected to be able to encourage the realization of the plan. Automated cars will be able to communicate with each other, with road signs, traffic lights, guide rails and other elements visible to human drivers.
This requires another technical leap, namely reducing the so-called “latency” or delay between when a signal is sent and when it is received to 1 millisecond.
Need More Base Stations
In fifth generation (5G) technology, achieving high data rates with low latency requires technical changes, including data transmission using higher radio frequencies and antenna design to reduce interference with multiple devices communicating at the same time.
This means that 5G networks require more base stations – which also have to be physically smaller than existing cell towers and located closer together. 5G base stations will probably be located every 250 meters instead of the one to five kilometers that 4G requires.
Spawning a Massive Expansion
5G systems also offer the possibility of providing a reliable connection to a large number of wireless devices simultaneously. This allows for a large expansion in the number of daily use of devices connected to the internet.
Trial in the Big City of the World
The Tokyo Olympics is expected to be the first full-fledged exhibition of 5G technology. Between now and then – or even in the future – companies launching 5G networks will implement and continue to develop these new technologies, just as they did in previous generations.
