What changes will be brought to the 5G infrastructure?
The 5th generation (5G) wireless infrastructure not only opens the way for new applications, but also greatly improves 4G and previous generations of wireless applications. As the performance of 5G networks increases, communication speed will be faster, latency will be lower, and interactivity will be better. This is good news for consumer experience and machine-to-machine (M2M) communication.
5G wireless technology and application
5G communication is a means of communication between devices, but it is also an enabling technology that can really improve existing applications. Let's explore the significance of 5G wireless networks for existing and emerging applications.
Introducing the Internet into consumer smartphones and tablets is the earliest and largest deployment of 5G networks. With higher transmission speeds and lower latency, consumers will also see that 5G connectivity is not only a consumer device, but also an Internet access channel for homes (fixed wireless access). Techniques like beamforming, which can focus the signal to the user's beam rather than broadcasting in all directions, improve the integrity of the user's signal while minimizing signal interference to other users.
Virtual reality and augmented reality
Virtual Reality (VR) builds an interactive (computer-generated) environment that can interact through heads-up. The VR head display has a real-time head tracking function that changes the angle of view in the scene based on head movement. Instead of building a synthetic environment, Augmented Reality (AR) uses a head-up or smartphone to overlay synthetic objects onto the real world that people see. Both technologies will benefit from the high capacity of 5G networks: 5G's ultra-high transmission speed facilitates the construction of a synthetic world and transfers it from remote clouds (called cloud rendering) to VR devices, while 5G's ultra-low latency performance can Quickly respond to head movements, presenting only the current scene to the user
