Top 5G Technology Trends

Telecom Tech Outlook | Tuesday, August 31, 2021

5G networks will get virtually sliced to deliver various service characteristics for different use cases.

Fremont, CA: The fifth generation of cellular technology is known as 5G. It's designed to provide faster mobile internet rates than prior 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) and other technologies. It can increase revenue and reduce client attrition. 5G networks will get virtually sliced to deliver various service characteristics for different use cases.

Technology Trends

  • The impact of Covid-19 on 5G market development and progress

Covid-19 has the potential to slow down the implementation of 5G for some operators. Government-imposed social distancing restrictions during the pandemic's peak primarily resulted in brief disruptions in the 5G deployment.However, the postponement of 5G spectrum auctions in countries such as Brazil, Mexico, Canada, India, Spain, France, and India, scheduled for 2020, may significantly influence the short- and medium-term expansion of mobile 5G.

  • 5G will open up new revenue opportunities

The bandwidth and capacity of previous wireless generations have risen. However, 5G promises to go much farther, bringing low latency, high density, and increased dependability to the consumer and commercial markets, allowing for new use cases. These capabilities will be critical in developing new technologies such as self-driving cars, robotic surgery, and augmented reality applications (AR).In addition, telcos may generate new revenue streams in vertical sectors such as energy and utilities, manufacturing, and healthcare due to this.

  • The range of possible frequencies gives operators options

5G can handle a wide range of frequency bands, including shared and unlicensed spectrum, ranging from sub-1GHz to 40GHz and above. Operators can choose from a variety of deployment options.5G will require spectrum across the low, mid, and high bands in the long run to provide comprehensive coverage and support. Lowband deployments offer a wide range of coverage. The mid-band spectrum, primarily the 2.5GHz and 3.5GHz bands, strikes a balance between urban and semi-urban coverage.

In densely populated locations, the MmWave band provides ultra-high-speed access. However, operators must understand radio frequency behavior, spectrum costs, and how much support for specific brands to get the most out of 5G installations.

  • Fixed wireless is a more crucial use case due to Covid-19.

Fixed wireless access (FWA) based on LTE technology has been deployed by operators worldwide, with the primary goal of augmenting inadequate or non-existent fixed network infrastructure. However, 5G opens up new possibilities for FWA. It has gigabit data rates, minimal latency, and increased capacity. In addition, it allows operators to provide a broadband experience similar to fiber without running wires to every home.
