5G systems

 

Most of us are using 4G LTE devices now, However, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) is working on setting the standard and defining the specifications for the Next Generation 5G (5th Generation) Network with the help of Samsung Mobile in Korea.

 

Last month, 12 delegates debated on the specifications to be established for the upcoming 5G network standard. After testing, Samsung annouced that 5G Networks will have a peak speed of 20Gbps, or 20x times the peak speed specification of 4G LTE networks, which stands at 1Gbps.

One thing to bear in mind is that these are theoretical max speeds, and that the first 5G networks will likely reach much lower peak speeds. At the moment, the fastest LTE standard is LTE Cat 9, which provides peak speeds of up to 300Mbps, well below the 1Gbps speed specification of 4G networks. What this means is that while crazy transfer speeds are to be expected, 5G subscribers will not be able to download an ultra high-definition movie in just a second, which is what a download speed of 20Gbps would mean if put into practice.

5G networks will also be built with internet-of-things (IoT) devices in mind, as the ITU has established that 5G networks will be able to cater to more than 1 million IoT devices inside a 1 square kilometre radius at an average speed of above 100Mbps. The ITU expects the first commercial 5G Networks to start opening for business in 2020, although a working example is being prepared for the upcoming 2018 PyeongChang Olympic Games.

Apple wants to catch up with Google, so the company started secretly working on an electric vehicle. Today, Bloomberg is reporting that the Cupertino-based company is planning to begin production of the vehicle by the year 2020. That's an aggressive timeframe given that experienced automobile companies typically spend 5-7 years developing a car.

As per the report, Apple's car team consists of 200+ people, which is inline with an earlier report that said hundreds of employees are working on the project. In the past couple of months, the iPhone maker has been hiring experts in technologies for batteries and robotics recently, electric-car battery maker A123 Systems sued Apple for poaching its top engineers.

 

A 2020 deadline would put Apple in direct competition with Google, as well as other automakers, like Nissan, Tesla, and GM, who are also planning to launch their self-driving or next-gen electric cars in the next five years.
