A 5G network is a wireless technology that promises faster speeds and better coverage than 4G networks. It uses radio waves instead of microwaves to transmit data, which means it can travel farther and penetrate buildings and other obstacles.

What is a 5G Network?

 

 

 

 

 

A 5G Network is a wireless mesh network that uses radio waves to transmit data over long distances. A 5G network is capable of transmitting data at speeds of 1 Gbps (or 10^9 bits per second) and higher. In comparison, 4G networks have maximum speeds of around 100 Mbps (10^6 bits per second).

 

 

The first generation of mobile phones were based on 2G technology, which was introduced in 1991. 2G technology operates using frequencies between 900MHz and 1800MHz. 3G technology was introduced in 2001 and operated at frequencies between 2100MHz and 2600MHz. 4G technology was introduced in 2009 and operates at frequencies between 700MHz and 2500MHz. 5G technology is currently being developed and will operate at frequencies between 300MHz and 3000MHz.

 

 

In order to use a 5G network, you need a device called a modem. Modems are small boxes that connect to your computer via USB. You then plug your modem into your router. Your router connects to the internet and forwards information to your modem. Once connected, your modem sends out signals to nearby devices. These signals travel through space until they reach their destination. When they do, the signal is converted back into digital information.

 

 

 

When you’re sending information across a 5G network, the speed at which you send data is known as throughput. Throughput is measured in megabits per second (Mbps), gigabits per second (Gbps), terabits per second (Tbps), or petabits per second (Pbps).
There are two types of 5G networks: fixed-network and mobile-network. Fixed-network 5G networks are installed in specific locations where people want to access them. Mobile-network 5G networks allow users to move freely throughout a certain area while still accessing the network.

 

 

Fixed-Network 5G Networks
Fixed-network 5G networks consist of base stations that are placed strategically throughout a city. Base stations are towers that hold antennas. Each antenna transmits and receives data from nearby devices. The base station converts the data into a format that can be sent to the internet.

 

 

Mobile-Network 5G Networks
Mobile-network 5G networks work similarly to traditional cellular networks. However, instead of connecting to a tower, users connect to a base station that’s located near them. Users can move throughout a certain area while maintaining connectivity.
