ITU defines 5G network speed; to be launched during 2018 winter Olympics

By NewsGram Staff Writer

The International Telecom Union (ITU) has set out a preliminary set of definitions for the fifth generation of mobile networks. In a recent conference held in San Diego from June 10th to 18th, a 12-member delegation decided upon the specifications of this network which is expected to have a speed that would be 20 times faster than the current 4G network.

The group decided that the data speed for the 5G network would be around 20Gbps (Gigabits per second) which is almost 20 times faster than the 4G network which provides a speed of only 1Gbps. With a speed of 20 Gbps, users will be able to download HD movies within seconds and surf the internet faster than ever. A very high resolution of video content and holographic technology via networks can be easily accessed by the users. While Indians are yet to grace the 4G network more widely, the world is already gearing up for the fifth generation. The 5G network is most likely to be named as IMT 2020. However, a huge challenge for this network would be the issue of standardization and bringing together the major telecom operators around the world to settle for a similar set of regulations. The IMT 2020 systems will be designed to deal with a potentially wide range of fields like healthcare, robotics, virtual reality and industrial automation. It is going to significantly transform wire353682less communications as a part of its predicted functioning which is likely to match the speeds and reliability achieved by fiber-optic infrastructure. With instant connectivity and high speed surfing options, 5G network is about to bring in a huge revolution in the telecom sector.

The final confirmation for these specifications will be done in the month of October 2015, after an approval from the 193 member nations of ITU. This 5G network is expected to be rolled out in 2020 commercially, with a prior demonstration of the technology at the 2018 winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Sources revealed that by 2019, the international spectrum for the 5G network will be distributed across the globe.
