After years of expectation and tremendous speculation, cellular networks of the 5th generation (5G) finally become true. 5G will change our lives significantly, and 5G would help us appreciate the promise of a truly connected planet, more dramatically than ever since the internet itself. Mature 5G networks run on higher and shorter frequencies than 4G, depending a few hundred feet on a thick infrastructure of "towers" of shoe box sized. That enables them to serve billions of devices at speeds up to 20 times higher than 4G, with virtually no latency. 5G antennas also use less power, improving the protocol for linking small Internet of Things (IoT) devices powered by batteries. 1. Smart Cities Two thirds of U.S. jurisdictions have invested in intelligent city innovations, according to the National League of Cities. For example, San Diego has implemented intelligent lighting systems that automatically dim when there is nothing around, cutting energy costs by about $2 million a year. 36,000 streetlights are covered by LEDs holding the air quality control sensors in Pittsburgh. Built sensors within the manhole, South Bend, Indiana, redirect water flow when wastewater levels get too high. When San Francisco has installed microphones for gunshot monitoring in high-crime areas, it has registered a 35 percent drop in shooting incidents. Upgrading to 5G allows cities to process and mount low-power sensors from millions of IoT products without substitution for years. It would improve their ability to control traffic flow, air quality, energy consumption, public safety and more intelligently. The Accenture Plan study for 2017 estimates that 5G networks will save towns $160 billion to handle traffic and electricity. 2. Driverless Cars According to the National Highway Traffic Regulator, nearly 95% of road accidents are caused by human error. By stopping people from driving behind the wheel, up to 1 25 million people will be saved every year. However they must engage with the cars around them to avoid crashes and remove the blockage, in order to retain fully autonomous driverless vehicles. You must talk to cameras, road signs and pavement that are combined with traffic lights for safe navigation. And they require urgent responses – the position to access 5G latency networks. Dr. Kevin Curran, Ulster University Professor, Northern Ireland and Group Leader of the Environmental Intelligence Study Group observes that "only rapid networks such as 5G are able to support milliseconde-level latency." "We are not far from driverless cars sharing and dominating our roads one day, but first of all we must invest in infrastructure." The highways will be less busy and the air less dirty until driverless infrastructure is in operation. Fewer citizens have cars and more riding shares will become more popular for fully autonomous vehicles. The Boston Consulting Group estimates that the number of cars on the urban roads will decrease by 60% and the emissions of tail pipes by 80%. 3. Virtual Spaces The high speed and low latency of 5G enable enhanced and augmented reality hopefully to become realistic. The TV apps allow colleagues in remote cities to work side-by-side or sport fans to hear the Super Bowl crowd's roar from the comfort of their couches. On lunch breaks, we can digitally wander shopping areas in Tokyo and ship the products to our homes. Not all of the modifications will occur immediately. Although major carriers in cities around the globe are currently implementing selective 5G edition, applications that can reach 5G networks are only beginning to emerge, and ultra-high-speed implementations are still many years away. The dominant wireless infrastructure took 10 years for 4G and it could take much longer for 5G to become. Yet we will ask how we have ever lived without him until it is completely in place.
