How 5G is changing daily lives?

It is only a figure just like one more number. But behind it hides the next level. 5G, the new generation of data transmission and connection is no longer a future. It has already taken its first steps in 2019 and is likely to stay, but specifically to change everything in 2020. This change is not only in means of mobile networks only, but it will also change our lives. If you are not aware of how it will influence our daily lives and what will change? In this article, we are going to discuss what it is and how it will change our daily lives. Have a good read!

What is 5G technology?

There are no five points in 5G – it just means “fifth-generation” as in the fifth generation of mobile technology. 3G was the third generation, 4G the fourth and 2019 has brought us fifth. It’s easy to underestimate how fast 5G technology will be. The main difference will be in the substantial reduction of latency, ie how quickly signals are sent ‘to’ and ‘from’ devices. Just in context, the latency response rate in 3G technology was 100 milliseconds, in 4G it was 50 milliseconds, and in 5G it will be 1 millisecond.  Until then, watching a video with good quality on our phones was really complicated and you could hardly maintain high quality. If we compare with what awaits us with 5G speed, the jump is gigantic.

How 5G technology will change lives ?

Better health – 2019 is the year of 5G technology but it is also the year of wearables. When the two technology trends come together, you will see amazing things happening in the world of health and fitness. 

With advances in smart fabrics, sensors, and wearable’s you will also see wearable technology on shoes, shirts and more – basically, anything that can be used will have some kind of technology it seems. Along with lower latency rates, the massive 5G connectivity upgrade will increase the number of devices that can work together at one time. So you will not only know how many steps you have taken today but also the weather conditions at each step, the effect of local humidity on your distance traveled or how much weight you are putting on each foot while walking. In addition, you will be able to share all the information with your doctor at the time it becomes available, allowing you to have a much clearer picture of your health since your last visit. This will not only help your doctor but also save time in the waiting room.

Music that moves with you – Entertainment is now starting to explore the possibilities of 5G. It is now possible to easily transfer music from one speaker to another indoors – but you still have to speak to give that order. What if it wasn’t so? With 5G devices and sensors at home, your music can accompany you as you move around the house. 

But then you still had to tell your speakers what to play, right? Thanks to wearables with restraint technology, you can monitor your heart rate, hormones, blood pressure and even more throughout the day. If your data indicates that you are coming home tense after a long day at work, the AI assistant will know that you are tired and need to hear something relaxing. Or maybe you just have good news and need to hear music to celebrate! 5G technology takes this physical and emotional adaptability out of the house as well. When you start running, Bixby will know what music to play to motivate you. And when it slows down, it will play something calm to help you recover.

Low latency and the future of the Internet of Things (IoT) – Another key to good data transfer performance is called latency. This term is used to indicate the response time in the interval between the device receiving the signal and performing a task. That is, both the network and the device in question need to be prepared for it. In 4G there is a 10-millisecond delay for this to happen. Already in 5G, experts indicate that this delay will fall to 1 millisecond. It may seem like little difference on cell phones, but it will be critical for connected cars, because the faster a vehicle can react to a command, the less likely it is that a problem will occur. The arrival of the 5G should increase the number of devices connected to the network. Here, we are not just talking about smartphones and computers, but pretty much everything: cars, appliances, wearables and more.

Autonomous Cars – One of the things that are mostly surrounded by expectations with the official arrival of 5G is the possibility that autonomous cars take to the streets. They need a high-speed, low-latency signal to receive and send location and traffic information, keeping the driver and passengers safer.

Wrapping Up

Although most of the big companies are already focused on 5G, trying to adapt their hardware for the near future, all this innovation will arrive in the first half of this year. While some technology companies are already selling 5G home solutions in select cities, there is still a long way to go before we can take full advantage of this network.
