What is 5G?

Sharing is caring!

1. 5G Explained.

We refer to 5G as the fifth-generation cellular network technology that provides broadband access. 5G follows 2G, 3G, and 4G and their respective associated technologies.

Furthermore, we may have heard that with 3G, it takes approximately 26 hours to download a two-hour film. With 4G, six minutes and with 5G, three and a half seconds. 5G is not just about the download speed, videos that never buffer or calls that never drop. Due to this framework of reference, many of us are thinking in terms of download speeds.

Finally, it’s also about driverless cars, connecting appliances, and smart homes. With basically everything that can be connected, it does pose risks and security risks to a country if you don’t own the technology 5GE is not 5G it’s just faster than LTE and a bit more advanced it’s still lacking in terms of download speeds.

2. The Influence of Politics on Technology.

Politics and technology are like oil and water it does not mix well. President Donald Trump and China relationship are volatile, as seen in reports. He barred American Firms to make use of telecoms equipment made by firms posing national security risks. It is aimed at China and Huawei.

Despite these claims, Russia has decided to side with Huawei to develop 5G and Russia’s president has voiced an opinion that Huawei is getting pushed out of global markets to develop 5G.

3. Ownership of Technology.

It leaves us with the question is this restriction on digital assets and development that can benefit the world really founded or is this more about ownership of this technology?

Huawei’s biggest challenge seems to be a replacement Android Operating System since Google has been barred from Huawei due to the claims of posing a threat or risk to the national security of America.

According to reports from Forbes, it seems like Huawei is testing Aurora OS as a replacement, but there are speculations Huawei exploring multiple alternative options. Therefore we are uncertain to what it may result in the future.

4. Questionable Outcome.

Another question is how will global markets react. Is it possible for Huawei and China to develop their own Android Operating System and Services?

  1. Huawei Technologies plans to go ahead with the launch of new high-end smartphones in Europe although it may not be able to offer Google’s official Android operating system and widely used apps such as Google Maps, company executives said.

    A Google spokesperson said that the devices cannot be sold with the necessary Android software after the US government instigated a trade ban to prevent US companies from working with the Chinese tech firm.

    President Trump has indicated it could be lifted as part of a trade deal.

    “Huawei will continue to use the Android OS and ecosystem if the U.S. government allows us to do so,” Huawei spokesman Joe Kelly told Reuters. “Otherwise, we will continue to develop our own operating system and ecosystem.”

    Huawei has recently announced HarmonyOS, the operating system it’s developing to replace its reliance on Android.

    So I wish them success.
