5G network technology experts are counting on radically changing the telecom sector and using electronic applications and digital services.

What are the technical characteristics of the 5G network that distinguishes it from previous networks? What are its future effects on our personal and professional transactions? Is this technology a threat to the environment and public health because of its electromagnetic frequencies?

Politically, what are the stakes in the Chinese conflict with the rest of the world – especially the United States, Britain, and the European Union – because Huawei accused Huawei of being a “Trojan horse” for Chinese intelligence?

“A letter and a number that carries a lot of promises and raises a lot of fears among countries, companies and public opinion!”

Thus, the position of the new technological baby 5G network can be summarized, as this technology from the fifth generation of mobile communications will soon replace the fourth generation, which is no longer able to accommodate the continuous increase of voice communication and video services.

How is the 5G network distinguished from its predecessors?

Technically, the fifth generation uses the 3.5 GHz radio frequencies in its first version before reaching the 26 GHz level.

The new technology aims to provide connectivity without congestion at the level of the traditional frequencies used by the second, third and fourth generation, which range from 700 MHz to 26 GHz.

The effectiveness and power of the 5G network is not only related to the type and level of radio frequencies used; But also the quality of the technical infrastructures (antenna and controllers), which allow enjoying an entry quality of digital services equivalent to 10 times the access speed available over the fourth-generation networks.

For example, uploading a 1 GB file using a mobile phone or tablet will only take 10 seconds over 5G, compared to 7 minutes in the technologies currently in use.

Response speed is a characteristic feature of this new generation of networks, whether reception or transmission of digital data, as this speed reaches 1 ms per second compared to 10 to 40 ms per second for fourth generation networks.

All of these technical features related to ease of access, speed of transmission and reception will undoubtedly affect all daily applications of education, trade and health …

Central switching generated by 5G is the speed of uploading and video communication thanks to the frequency of 26 GHz. Thanks to the fifth generation networks, the connection between a million phones, electronic devices and cars without a driver, the Internet of things and others will be very easy.

And the world’s telecom service providers are still preparing for technical migration to the fifth generation, while the telecom companies in the Principality of Monaco and in South Korea started to provide the first services that rely on 5G technologies already.
