The Impact of 5G

5G networks will potentially transform the way business is conducted through internet markets.

The fifth-generation wireless technologies (5G) promises exciting new services and will impact AI, IoT, media convergence, and create new milestones in connected devices. The 5G technology will provide a higher peak data rate and much greater reliability than its forerunners.

It may be a while before 5G becomes common place. However, it is important to be aware of the technology and what features may be suitable in the future.

What are the pros and cons of 5G?

  • More bandwidth will be available, so devices will run faster.
  • With more bandwidth available, you will be able to use this bandwidth to do more with your smart devices, making them more versatile than ever before.
  • On the flip side, more bandwidth results in less coverage, requiring more cell towers.
  • As this frequency is rolled out, time will tell whether issues will arise with sending and receiving signals.
  • The 4G LTE networks have a peak delivery speed of 100 Mbps while 5G has a peak rate of 20 Gbps. This will provide quicker download for large files and seamless video transmission.
  • Physicians express concerns about the potential negative health effects of 5G radiation. Others argue that 5G frequency is harmless to human bone and tissue.
  • A new series of network security issues are emerging, so monitoring for malicious activity is also critical.

The World Health Organization states that: “Considering the very low exposure levels and research results collected to date, there is no convincing scientific evidence that the weak RF signals from base stations and wireless networks cause adverse health effects.”

Meanwhile, let’s be cautious and keep an eye on developments as this technology proceeds.
