5G Wireless What We Know So Far

Even as wireless carriers already achieve to bring us higher-speed 4G networks, engineers now are focus on the even faster one: 5G. It will be not only faster but also better be able to manage the burgeoning Internet of things, which enable practically countless devices to connect to the Internet and to each other.

Chris Cave of InterDigital writes for VentureBeat that the industry is in the earliest stages of defining what 5G will be. But the early efforts can tell us a lot about what 5G will look like when it finally arrives. He adds, though, that “5G may turn out to be a tale of two approaches – and maybe more.”

Why they think 5G is so impotant? Because they want it to offer broadband performance and to enable the Internet of Things. Cave notes that that points to two very different use cases, “one of which is focused on very high throughput mobile broadband with a particular emphasis on indoor access, and one of which is designed to deliver a variety of alternative connectivities, whether ultra-low-power and low cost (think disposable sensors) or mission-critical/low latency (think self-driving vehicles).”

Similarly, the initial research into 5G has been driven by several of different motivations. Much of it has occurred in Asia because South Korea will host the Winter Olympics in 2018, and Japan will host the Summer Olympics in 2020. Both events serve as both the impetus and the target date for researchers, and the video-heavy nature of the events place the focus on mobile broadband above 6 GHz. Development efforts in Europe and North America, by contrast, focus more on multi-device, Internet of Things, and non-consumer applications.
