5G is a technological leap that will not only pave way for increased speeds in communication but also brings with it a plethora of advancements in connected devices, security, stability in high-speed transmissions, optimized video delivery and a lot more.
5G will pave way for technological implementations that would look as if they are right from the pages of science fiction books and films in varied fields such as medicine, connected objects, autonomous cars, industry or video games.
Tomorrow’s 5G would be almost 10 times faster than 4G, where it sometimes took 4 minutes to download an 800mb movie, it could take just 1 second in the best-served places, or 1Gb / S. A priori there will be very few constructions, and therefore added pollution because some 4G antennas can be modified to be converted to 5G.
The French state is actively working on expanding the 5G network in partnership with mobile operators to whom it resells frequency bands, and whose 5G packages you can compare already available in a large number of cities in France (Paris, Marseille , Lille, Nantes, Montpellier, Lyon, Toulouse, Bordeaux, Rouen, etc.).
The health of tomorrow: expectations and perspectives
Telemedicine is one of the areas that could be the most disrupted by these new technological prowess. The issue of “medical deserts”, a phenomenon that is tending to accelerate and against which the state has been trying to fight for several years, may well find its resolution.
“Connected health” will be polymorphic. Connected objects will offer both better prevention (monitoring of constants, alerts in the event of accidents) but also real-time assistance facilitated by new videoconferencing equipment at a very low cost and allowing numerous remote diagnostics and prescriptions. . Canada, for example, is currently carrying out trials to transport defibrillators by drones, which would arrive up to twice as fast as the emergency services on site for a 15 km journey.
“Tele-surgery” will also be more widely developed thanks to the strong reductions in latency and the improvement in video quality made possible by 5G, but also by the assistance of augmented reality.
IoT: for an ever more connected world
The IoT (Internet of Things) or the Internet of Things represents the interconnection space between all the digital tools that we use on a daily basis and which allows them to send and receive information, in particular via applications. . Its capacities will be increased tenfold with the arrival of 5G, which will allow many advances in the private and public sectors.
In industry, for example, it will be possible to connect an entire network of machines without wires, to repair them or to modify production processes directly without human intervention. The factories of the future will be able to develop their productivity exponentially but also to reduce their energy consumption, and therefore their costs and their ecological footprint. These advances can then reach other sectors such as agriculture, commerce or education. Cities, for example, will be able to reduce their electricity consumption by linking the necessary data in real time.
The transport of the future: expected innovations
The automotive and driving sectors will also be disrupted by the arrival of 5G and its multiple applications in this field. Continuing from today, the increase in speed will facilitate access to more content: games, internet, multimedia.
The IoT will allow the appearance of “connected cities” where all traffic information, traffic lights, accidents, parking spaces, the position of other cars, dangers and others will be cross-checked and transmitted in real time. to drivers and cars. This will allow greater safety at the wheel as well as greater comfort for road users. Mobile operator services, OEMs and car manufacturers have been working on these vehicles for several years.
