How 5G Will Change Our Lives: 10 Moments

5G The next generation networks 5G are already “stepping on the heels” of the modern 4G standard. At the CES 2019 electronics show, this was one of the most popular topics.

Американский оператор связи AT&T уже начал распространение сетей mmWave (миллиметровые волны 5G) в 12 городах Штатов через мобильные точки доступа. Next comes the operator Verizon, Telstra is going to launch networks 5G in Australia, EE – in the UK.

Everyone knows that networks 5G will have lightning-fast download speeds from the Internet. In 2019, about 30 smartphones with support 5G are expected to appear. How else can our life change this year?

Home internet without cable

Wireless internet 5G

This is an important point that is not talked about much, since it is mainly about mobile devices. Now you have a fiber optic cable at home and at work, which provides very fast Internet access (many have unlimited Internet 100 Mbit). If there is no cable, then you are out of luck. For example, such problems are experienced by residents of private houses.

5G will change this. There will be no need to run the cable through houses or underground, to install switchgear in the entrance or basement. In addition to saving the cable itself, this will free up additional space inside the premises.

For this reason, corporate clients are interested in distribution 5G to get rid of the extra wires in their businesses. It is large enterprises that can become the first users 5G.

Real-time augmented reality

The virtual reality

The Belgian company Mimesys at the exhibition in Las Vegas showed the possibilities of holographic interaction over networks 5G using Magic Leap mixed reality devices and special corporate business cards. AT&T также подтвердила свои планы по запуску зоны 5G для работы Magic Leap в своём кампусе во Флориде. This will happen already in 2019.

5G enables developers to test devices and applications for future entertainment applications and other content.

Fewer base stations and plastic smartphones

Smartphone prototype 5G

mmWave 5G consists of many small boxes all over the city instead of the usual huge base stations. These will be new enclosures that do not block or degrade network bandwidth.

For 5G density is important. We will see fewer cell towers with huge antennas. Instead, there will be nanocells the size of a home router that emits a signal. This is said by Dr. Gunther Walze, who is researching what types of plastics and other materials will pass the signal without problems 5G.

Smartphone development will also change. The metal cases on the devices work with 4G networks, since the antennas outside take up little space. With nets 5G, multiple antennas are needed which are too large to fit on the edge of the case. They have to be at the back, so the back cannot be metal.

Self-driving cars, but only in cities

Self-driving cars

Everyone knows what self-driving cars are. 5G will give impetus to the spread of this technology. These cars communicate with the cloud service on the Internet and with each other. Communication must be instantaneous in order to react quickly to traffic situations.

This limits travel opportunities. First of all, they will be available in cities where there is better coverage with mobile networks and higher traffic density. This will better avoid collisions.

Mini clouds everywhere

Cloud storage

Welcome to the cutting edge of computing made possible by 5G. The technology will provide instant connectivity to cloud storage, but only if it's close.

Instead of creating large data centers, networks 5G will allow small “mini-clouds” to be installed where they are needed. Computing power will move closer to devices to reduce data latency. Networks 5G are very fast, but only at short distances.

In rural areas, mmWave can be used on street lights. If you need to perform real-time analysis or calculate something, but you do not have fast enough Internet for this to send data to a server somewhere on another continent, this will be a closer solution where you can get the necessary computing power.

8K TVs, 8K video streaming over 5G


At the show, Japanese manufacturer Sharp showed a TV 5G TV, but it's not intended for the home. This manufacturer has cameras with 8K resolution. With their help, you can shoot players at the stadium, encode the signal, transmit through 5G to large screens.

Tokyo will host the 2020 Winter Olympics, which will be streamed in 8K by local NHK.

Cloud gaming on smartphones

Whatever kinds of devices gamers have at home, outside the home they have to play on smartphones. With networks 5G, this can change. You can play any game on your smartphone and get the same performance as on a computer or console at home. The company demo Intel showed a network connection 5G using Ericsson networking equipment.

It feels like you're playing on a PlayStation console, but the actual processing takes place on the server. This means that you can play any games from your home collection on your mobile device while in your car, subway, etc.

A very smart “second brain”

Assistant, device with 5G

Additional speeds and instant cloud connectivity can empower personal assistants on devices like Google Glass and headphones. They will execute commands with almost no delay.

Maybe someday we will have a virtual assistant in our ear that can represent the person you are shaking hands with. Despite the fact that no one except you will hear this.

The OrCam MyMe wearable camera was a glimpse of that future at the show. She can recognize faces and text. In the era of 5G there will be even more such products.

Instant language translator on smartphones

Instant language translation on smartphones

Instant translation technologies are everywhere now, but in real life their work is far from ideal. They are too slow to help with real communication.

Google Translate often gives incorrect results. However, if its accuracy improves, the networks 5G will make it possible to receive transfers instantly. The same applies to pocket translators without internet access.

Bigger “mobile zombies” on the streets

There are more and more conversations that you need to spend less time at smartphones and screens of other devices. Google and Apple in their operating systems are trying to combat gadget addiction. However, networks 5G will make this dependency even stronger.

Users will be more connected to smartphones anywhere, anytime. Already, you can see people on the streets who have buried themselves in screens. Over time, there will be more and more of them.
