5G and Internet of Things Applications: A comprehensive look at the future of 5G applications
5G technology will be applied to many industries and life scenarios, among which 5G and Internet of Things applications are of great interest and will bring significant changes to the world and our lives. hgc will walk with you into the future and explore the future 5G applications.
5G Network Architecture Technology
The 5G mobile network uses a digital honeycomb architecture, where the network is divided into different zones like a honeycomb, with miniature or large base stations and various related devices and systems in each zone. Users can use mobile devices, such as smartphones, to connect to the 5G wireless signal from the base station. When the base station receives the signal from the user”s device, the signal is transmitted quickly and steadily through the “backhaul” (pictured) provided by telecommunications providers such as HGC Transnet, which first transmits the data to the 5G core network equipment and eventually connects to the Internet. It is a very important part of the 5G network architecture technology.
5G Transmission Technology
One of the key successes of 5G technology is the use of millimeter wave (mmWave) or Sub-6 5G bands, which break through the limitations of previous technologies to obtain a wider bandwidth and significantly increase the speed of wireless transmission. On the other hand, the fiber optic network connected to the base station also needs to be upgraded from 1 GB to 10 GB, which is a “widened channel” to fully utilize the features of 5G technology.
5G applications can be divided into three main areas, namely “Enhanced Mobile Broadband” (eMBB), “Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communication” (URLLC) and “Massive Machine Type Communication” (mMTC), which correspond to the benefits of “High Speed Internet Access”, “Low Latency” and “Wide Connectivity” mentioned in the earlier article “5G Benefits”. A large number of 5G applications can be created.
5G and Internet of Things Applications
Simply put, the Internet of Things refers to the interconnection of various devices and equipment objects to form a network that can exchange data between them and respond in real time. The “smart home” and “smart city” that we often hear about are all related to the Internet of Things. Since a large number of devices need to connect to each other, the “large-scale machine-type communication” and “wide connectivity” characteristics of 5G applications are very important in IoT applications.
Automatic car driving
The emergence of 5G will help automobiles realize the vision of fully autonomous driving. The wide connectivity and low latency feature will allow a large number of cars and cars to communicate with each other to ensure the driving distance, and the intelligent transportation system, including intelligent lamp posts, will allow cars to cooperate with the on-site road conditions to form a car network to deliver passengers to their destinations safely.
Smart meters and power grids are one example of 5G Internet of Things applications. Power companies can install large-scale smart devices and power systems to collect various kinds of data and send them to control centers for analysis and monitoring through 5G, making the entire power supply system more efficient.
The future applications of 5G are much more than that. We look forward to more 5G applications to enhance our quality of life.
