5G Technology Introduction: One Step Ahead

Technology in the field of telecommunications continues to develop. One of the hot issues up to now is the 5G or 5th generation telecommunications network system. This technology is considered “one step ahead” compared to 4G.

5G Technology Introduction: Pros and Cons

5G Technology Introduction: The Ambitious Telecommunications Project 1

Regional TMT Research Bank DBS, Sachin Mittal said, this technology is claimed to increase the speed and latency of data from 10 up to 100 times, and aim at latency 20 to 40 times lower. This shortens the time it takes for the signal to reach one point to another.

“Through 5G one can download (legally) ultra high-definition (HD) movies in just a few seconds. Many predict that in the not too distant future, people can watch movies in an autonomous car (supported by 5G) with everything that is fully done automatically by robots, “he said, in a written statement reported by iNews.id, (Sunday (08/18/2019).

He said, the application of 5G technology has its own challenges, especially in the use of Massive Multiple Input and Multiple Output (mMIMO) technology, which requires the use of high frequency spectrum. Analogically, despite being wide, the actual effective length of the 5G operational track is very short.

5G Technology Introduction: Pros and Cons

“Basically it means telecommunications operators must continue to add various supporting structures to extend the 5G line. In the real world, the supporting structure is called a base station (signal sending and receiving device) and is used to expand wireless coverage,” Sachin said.

5G Technology Introduction: At What Cost?

He said, 5G not only requires more base stations, the cost of each station is likely to be far more expensive. According to conservative estimates, it takes 4 up to 5 times more base stations to support 5G technology.

“The cost of each 5G base station might be 20 to 30 percent higher, and it consumes three times more power. Can you imagine living in a world surrounded by so many base stations?” he said.

Sachin revealed that autonomous cars were predicted as evidence of the application of 5G technology. While most 5G players claim this system operates at a latency level of less than 30 milliseconds. That number is far above the level needed for an autonomous car to function optimally (1 to 2 milliseconds). Considering these factors, a large-scale investment needs to be done before 5G is fully functional.

In short, he continued, launching a 5G network requires an enormous capital and investment. More importantly, are consumers willing to bear the costs of enjoying all the conveniences of 5G technology?

“We don’t think so, unless 5G can help consumers access new conveniences or cut costs. Companies might be willing to spend 5G, if it helps them get new sources of income for their business,” he said.
