How Will 5G Mobile Network Impact the World Today?

How Will 5G Mobile Network Impact the World Today?

There is plenty of speculation going on about the 5G mobile network. Since it’s shown to be the next generation of network tech and ten times faster than 4G, expectations are running high.

This mobile network seems to be destined to bring progress and innovation in multiple categories, from production to AI (artificial intelligence), and even remote health care. But, the real question is, what will be the most significant impact of the 5G mobile network? Let’s take a look at the statistics and what research has to say.

What Makes 5G Any Good?

To figure out what will be the most significant impact of the 5G mobile network, we first have to start with its predecessor – 4G.

In the past few years, 4G mobile networks became a widespread sensation. Data transmission became quicker and smartphones more functional. But, since the 5G was announced, 4G became a foreign concept. Now, 4G pales in comparison with this new network.

The 5G was built upon a foundation of 4G, but with major improvements. With the latest network we get:

  • Bigger data transmission capacity
  • Low latency that can go down from 50 to 1 millisecond
  • Massive mobile coverage
  • Multiple devices connected at the same time
  • From 100 to 1000 times quicker connection (web surfing, downloading, buffering.) Ex. Movies will buffer in just under 10 sec.

According to a study published by GSMA (Global System for Mobile Communications), 5G will bring massive network improvements, in terms of capacity, speed, mobility, and latency. Therefore, it can have a positive impact on various industries in all kinds of sectors.

At the moment, there is a high demand for advanced and improved data services and mobile tech. This includes VR (virtual reality), object manipulation, automation (self-driving cars), improved internet connection, and more.

Basically, this mobile network will cut the time and delay needed for communication, data transfer, web usage, etc. The multiple uses of such a network will have a major impact on the economy and society, mainly for contributing to tax revenue and GDP.

Will 5G Get Us Any Closer to Smart Cities?

With 5G, everything can get connected. We have the potential to create an absolutely new “ecosystem,” which can have the power to transcend the way we see the world today. We might even get the chance to create entire smart cities.

Since multiple devices can be connected at the same time, even in overcrowded areas, this becomes possible. But, this tech can offer much more than that.

With 5G, we can create safer traffic conditions. Since the connection allows real-time observation, we can get feedback on what the road conditions are, therefore, reducing the chance for an accident.

It could be equally beneficial for VR. Because of the better connection and less latency, people will have the possibility to create real virtual environments and simulations that are much closer to our real world.

When Will We Get Our Hands on 5G Tech?

Some operators like T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T have already implemented 5G tech in only some areas since 2018. Right now, the standard for the tech is still being talked about the same way manufacturers, and operators discussed it before they released the 4G Mobile Network.

There is some speculation that the EU will focus on adding full coverage of 5G technology by the end of 2025. But, in general, it’s believed that 2020 is supposed to be the year of 5G tech.

Until then, we will have to wait and see. Do you have high hopes for 5G? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Stage 4: Restrictions Melbourne Metro

COVID-19 Stage 4 Overview

We are closely monitoring the situation daily and constantly revision and updating company policies and procedures to keep our staff, clients and the greater community safe. If any of our staff have any flu symptoms, they must cease work immediately and get tested while waiting for tests they are forced to stay at home and not permitted to leave for any reason what so ever. Thus far Australia wide as of 14 October 2020 we have had 6 technicians go in for testing, one in SA and five in Victoria all came back as negative, to our knowledge we have been responsible for zero community transmissions and zero COVID-19 cases. After dealing with virus outbreaks for the last 20 years we understand the social dynamics and life cycles of these epidemics. As an organisation have gone over and above the government regulations and are working on new technologies to keep serving our clients with the highest standards of quality and service long into this pandemic.

We would like to update you regarding the stage 4 restrictions imposed by Daniel Andrews government on the state of Victoria since Midnight 5th August 2020. We will be closely screening all clients that they are clear from any flu symptoms or been into contact with anyone that is confirmed to have the COVID-19 virus. The great news is you can still get your computer fixed in Victoria, all other states are not affected and running as per normal, we have a number of flexible options for you;

1) Remote desktop support, for any software configuration issues we can log in remotely via the internet and fix them.

2) Contact-less computer repairs. We will book a time when a technician will come to your work or home, once the technician arrives they will call you. You are then required to put the equipment outside. The technician will take the equipment away assess it and then get back to you with some options for repairing it. Once the repairs are complete the technician will return the computer back to you.

3) Sendle - DIY send it in. You can book a Sendle pickup which we organise for the next business day. Simple call up and book the job, you then need to put your laptop in a box and we email you a shipping label. Attach the label to the box and a Sendle courier will pick it up from your work or home on the next business day. We will also arrange for delivery back to you once the computer is all fixed up.

4) Australia Post. You can register your details with us and then send your computer in for repairs. We can send it back once the machine is repaired and working like new again.

5) Onsite booking, this is only as a last resort if you need your computer as a primary communications tool or you need help with your NBN or VOIP phone. We can dispatch a technician with the full PPE outfit to you home or workplace to get you back online.

If you have any comments, concerns or feedback we would love to hear it, please email our biosecurity task force at [[email protected]].
