5G Technology |
5G is a new mobile communication standard representation an advancement in the current 4G or LTE standards currently adopted around the world. It can provide speeds of 10 Gbps, which is 100 times faster than the mobile technology used these days. 5G is the subject of international research and companies like Huawei, Nokia and Samsung are also doing research on the technology.
The technology is likely to be ready for commercial use by 2020 and is also expected to address issues such as increased terminal penetration and the sharp rise in traffic by offering more than one thousand times the capacity of LTE.
NTT DoCoMo is also working with Finnish telecom giant Nokia for research on 5G.
“NEC Corporation has reached an agreement with NTT DoCoMo to jointly conduct trials aimed at the practical use of technologies for a 5th-generation mobile communication standard (5G),” NEC Corporation said in a statement.
