The Rise of Mobile App Testing in the Wake of 5G Network 5G has emerged as a game changer across industries – promising high performance, agility and speed of delivery. Before proceeding anywhere further, we need a basic understanding on the antecedents of 5G and its impact corresponding to the technology changes unfolding in the Cellular Industry. Here is a brief overview of the preceding cellular technologies.
And here comes the legend of 5G!
The advent of 5G marks an important turning point in wireless communication history. In less than two years, 5G will be the apex of mobile connectivity, with faster data sharing and connection speeds that will enhance the smartphone experience.
5G technology is a boom, it will slay the industry with incredible speed.
Despite what may feel like a wave of innovation in recent years, wireless networks are relatively unchanged in the past decade because of the network infrastructure that makes our favorite apps work. In the years following the turn of the millennium, telecommunications companies deployed 4G networks to inspire revolutionary applications, providing swift downloads of gigabytes of data in minutes (rather than the hours it took users of 3G networks), enabling smooth video conferencing, high-definition video streaming, and wireless hotspot proliferation in the 2010s.
With everything the fourth generation (4G) has accomplished, cloud computing has caught the attention of the industry thanks to the fifth generation (5G). Do you remember 4G’s blazing speed? 5G has been measured at speeds up to 1 terabit per second, more than 65,000 times faster than 4G. As software developers and businesses alike demand consistent data transfer rates, 5G technology is bound to enhance their opportunities.
Fifth-generation networks count on several benefits, bringing a turning point in connectivity:
5G bandwidth may even reach 20Gbps – some estimates predict that it will reach significantly higher rates than 3G, 1 millisecond latency is extremely low, IoT systems will benefit from the ability to connect many devices simultaneously.
The following benefits are a result of all these features:
|1G Analog||Introduced in the 1980s, simple calls possible with a data speed of 2.4 Kbps|
|2G GPRS||Introduced in 1991, the first digital cellular network with a speed of 50 Kbps|
|3G UMTS||Introduced in 1998 with 2 Mbps speed. It started the wave of smartphone with some pictures and video calls.|
|4G LTE||Introduced in 2008, current wireless technology with HD live streaming, gaming and more with speed of 100 Mbps.|
