ITU (International Telecommunication Union) revealed all the details and specifications of the upcoming 5G technology. The 5G technology will boast a very impressive spec sheet. 5G users are expected to get the download speed of 100MB/sec and upload speed of 50MB/sec.
5G Technology To Feature 20GBps Download Speed!
Well, it was previously confirmed that 5G would be the official successor to 4G wireless connectivity as the fifth generation mobile wireless connectivity. Now, the specifications of the much awaited 5G technology were revealed.
The specs were revealed in a draft report by The International Telecommunication Union (ITU). The report shows all the details and specifications of the upcoming 5G technology. The 5G technology will boast a very impressive specification sheet.
Well, ITU has published a draft report on 5G technology, which will be finalized sometime in November 2017. There’s still a long way to go. However, the draft gives us a good idea of what we can expect from the upcoming 5G technology. 5G networks must support 1 million connected devices per square kilometer.
5G users are expected to get the download speed of 100MB/sec and upload speed of 50MB/sec. According to ITU, the total download capacity for each 5G cell must be at least 20GBps, and uplink peak data rate must be 10GBps per mobile base station. Well, 20GBps must sound fast, but it will be divided into all the customers in the area.
For high-quality connectivity when the user is accessing the internet through mobile, the 5G specs must also have the base station that can cover stationary users all the way up to vehicles traveling up to 500Km/h.
Well, if we talk about latency then 5G networks are expected to offer customers a maximum latency of 4ms. The report also calls for a latency of 1ms for URLLC (Ultra-reliable low latency communications).
The report also throws light on energy efficiency by claiming that 5G connectivity must be energy efficient and it should consume less power when in the idle state. So, what do you think about this? Share your views in the comment box below.
