Telecoms companies are really excited and prepared for entering the 5th generation of high speed technology. The 5G is an explosion box introducing people to smart world of wireless technology. Well the serious evolution of technology gave us many surprises. As for in 1991, the 2nd generation (2G) first allowed us to text each other, 1998’s 3rd generation (3G) let us surf internet, 4th generation (4G) brings the selfie & video calling to our phones and 5th generation (5G) is expected to be enabling to capture ultra HD and 3D videos with wireless advancement letting us to connect with our smart homes.
The US largest wireless communication providers VERIZON AND AT&T are all set to bang market with 5G. As Verizon first announced to field test the 5G network in September 2015 and predicted to launch wireless modem compatible for 5G network in 2018 and target to spread them across the world by 2020. The plans were roared aloud by both the companies challenging others and alluring the globe.
While Verizon was roaring San Diego’s QUALCOMM went a step ahead and announced to be launched first 5G modem and this would be called by name snapdragon X50. As current 4G give an average speed of 9.9 megabits per second, this chip x50 promises to be giving the people a new speedy experiences of 5 gigabits per second. ( since my mathematics is weak I really couldn’t count, on my fingers how much time this is fast… but dude that’s ridiculously fast!!!!)
In this rat race Intel really don’t want to lag behind. Intel sucked once at 4G against QUALCOMM. Intel’s Atom chipset ATOM z3580 lost battle against snapdragon 810. Intel then abandons Smartphone manufacturing , soFIA and Broxton atom 4G chipsets to just focus on 5G technology. Great investments are made by them in 5G project, which could offer 100 times faster experience of internet and data transfers. This time they want to beat QUALCOMM hardly. But QUALCOMM is always ahead in the race than Intel and MediaTek.
India may welcomes 5G quite late because of spectrum auction issues which in purely in government’s hand. For 4G network advancement, Bharti Airtel faced many hurdles in gaining spectrum on Delhi circle. India is divided into 22 circles where 2g services are operated at 900MHz band and 1800 MHz band , 3G on 900 and 2100 while 4G on 1800MHZ. Well, for United States FCC sold 200MHz band for 5G we really don’t know what Indian government will award for 5G. Whatever be the issues… we are excited for wireless 3D world.
