5G stands for the fifth generation of cellular technology. It is the latest iteration of the global wireless standards after 1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G networks. Which began wide deployment in 2019. 5G is meant to increase speed, reduce latency, and improve the flexibility of wireless services. It offers incredibly fast wireless communication that can be used to transmit all sorts of data at rates as high as 20 Gbps, as well as offer latency of 1 ms or lower for uses that require real-time feedback. 5G networks offer more reliable connections on smartphones and other devices than ever before, which opens up new possibilities for where and how you stay connected. The networks will help power a huge rise in IoT technology, providing the infrastructure needed to carry huge amounts of data, allowing for a smarter and more connected world.
5G will also be used to improve the performance of business applications as well as other digital experiences, including augmented realities (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), driverless cars, telemedicine and connected buildings.
