Way back in 1860 when the Scottish physicist, James Clerk Maxwell predicted the existence of radio waves; the wireless and mobile telephony technologies evaluations had begun and this has never stopped. Today, mobile communication has evolved a great deal in a few decades, in which come through the various generations of devices and networks compatible with new standards of telecommunication.
5G – More than just another G
If you have heard anything about 5G, it is probably the speed figures. Today’s best 4G tech, LTE Advanced, is advertised at 225 megabits per second for downloads, and up to one gigabit per second in technology demonstrations. That is pretty astounding, especially since LTE started at a top speed of about 12Mbps back in 2010. A lot of work has been done since then, and 5G codifies and expands those advancements, promising over 10 Gbps.
