What is 5G Networking?
5G networks are designed to enable virtual connection with everyone, including people, devices, and machines. 5G networking introduces technologies to efficiently transmit data through radio waves using Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) which offers lower frequency, ensures the speed of various devices through smaller cell sites, and supports the capabilities of network slicing to deploy multiple independent virtual networks over the same infrastructure. 5G networking offers improved capacity, is faster than 4G networking, and supports higher bandwidth, in support of more connected devices and increased data volume. 5G networking also supports the use of mobility solutions in various industries to enhance user experience, for example, in smart factories, with devices such as virtual and augmented reality, and with edge computing.
