What is 5G exactly?

5G is the 5th generation mobile and wireless networking. It is a new global wireless standard after 1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G networks. 5G enables a new kind of network that is designed to connect virtually everyone and everything including machines, objects, and devices.

5G is the next generation of mobile Internet connectivity promising faster data downloads and upload speeds wider coverage and more stable connections, it's all about making better use of the radio spectrum, at the same time 5G will be capable of supporting the ever-growing smart cities, driverless cars, virtual reality, the growing Internet of Things (IoT) and many other communication advancements which will enable these devices to run smoother with a larger bandwidth.


The existing 5G networks are built alongside existing 4G LTE networks which is a small upgrade for the existing 4G speeds. This design is an incremental step to the full 5G spectrum that will usher in a new era of communications.

The full spectrum of 5G is called standalone 5G networks,.they operate with very high frequencies, 30 GHz could easily achieve gigabit bit plus browsing speeds as standard. These speeds will likely come in a few years, at this time the network providers do not have the full infrastructure in place t provide this service.

Why does your business need to prepare?

As the world continues to grow mobile, were consuming more data every year particularly in the areas of video, music streaming, and data capture. This increase in usage increases the existing spectrum bands which are becoming more congested, this congestion will start leading to more and frequent breakdowns in service particularly when lots of people in the same area are trying to access online mobile services at the same time. 5G is much better at handling thousands of devices simultaneously, from mobile to equipment sensors, video cameras to smart devices.

As enterprises have been radically transforming to become more dependent on mobile connectivity and leveraging technology for smarter buildings and smart businesses. There is a need to know how to navigate the many products and innovative solutions in mobile wireless. Exploring the right solution for your need has proven to lower the costs of operations while ensuring lifetime quality levels and equipment and unveiled performance for coverage and high-speed performance.
