The Fifth-Generation New Radio (5G NR) communications framework provides an entirely new approach to cellular communications. It supports scalable waveforms, multiple access schemes, and service multiplexing across wide bandwidths. It also supports existing services while being forward compatible with future requirements.
The first tangible evidence of Fifth-Generation (5G) infrastructure has not been in mobile network base stations but rather in the Verizon™ fixed-wireless access (FWA) base stations for very high-speed broadband delivery to homes and businesses. This move has seemed counterintuitive for many people for two reasons:
The fifth generation (5G) of what used to be called cellular radio is like none before it. It encompasses not just smartphones and tablets but almost everything that can benefit from being connected to other things and the Internet. For the first time, connecting businesses is as important as connecting consumers, and while mobility remains […]
Not only will the new Fifth-Generation (5G) wireless infrastructure open the door to new applications, but it will greatly improve the applications that exist today for 4G and earlier wireless generations. With the 5G network’s enhanced performance, communication will be faster, with improved interactivity resulting from a significantly lower latency. That’s great for the consumer […]
The new Fifth-Generation (5G) standard is a unified mobile communication framework for our connected, mobile society; it supports high data-speed applications as well as mission-critical communications with ultra-reliable and low-latency requirements, and it connects billions of devices that can communicate with each other autonomously. This is the vision the International Telecommunication Union Radiocommunication Sector (ITU-R) […]
By 2020, more than half of United States households are expected to have 4K- and 8K-capable televisions. Wired broadband can support 4K/8K video streaming in homes, but it can’t support data-thirsty apps on the go.
