As India progresses towards a pan-India 4G network rollout, the research behind the fifth generation of cellular broadband technology is rapidly moving towards completion, called 5G at it’s current state. 5G simply stands for ‘fifth generation’, and it’s the upcoming standard of mobile communications which suggests that it will revolutionise how we interact with technology, moreover how technology interacts with us. So, what is 5G? Well, to be exact, it is not defined yet. It is rather, a very complex topic at the moment, since the properties and ingredients of the technology are still under consideration. However, currently, industry experts have chalked out some of its goals in the early stages of the conceptualisation of this upcoming technology. According to various organizations and research teams working on 5G, it will take at least another half a decade to become a global standard. 5G is supposed to bring lower latency, better and wider connectivity and best of all, super speeds of up to 10 Gbps. This is just the tip of the 5G iceberg as it is being conceptualised to be way bigger than the current 4G standard. It will not only help internet penetration in remote areas, but if the required goals are met, it will be an essential part of mission critical industries such as medicine and autonomous vehicles. 5G is also supposed to be a new chapter in security and a likely nurturer of big and small scale industries, which are likely to mushroom as we move towards a utopian, connected future.
