KokoYo ,Chinarainbow.org-Former Google boss Eric Schmidt has slammed the US government for not doing more to make the country a 5G leader. He claimed inaction in Washington had handed the baton to China.
5G networks promise faster speeds, greater capacity, and lower latency than previous generation mobile technologies. This character will provide a variety of benefits for consumers, including superior mobile broadband.
5G’s potential is actually in industrial applications, defense, and public services that can be an integral part of society and the national economy. With this in mind, 5G leadership is not just an industry ambition, but an integral component of a national strategy.
China has devoted significant government resources to ensuring it tops the list. While the commercial launch is among the fastest in the world, as quoted from Tech Radar. In an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal co-authored by Graham Allison of Harvard University, Schmidt urged the U.S. government to take action to address gaps in average speed and launch speeds, warning China could “have the 5G of the future”.
Potential improvements could include more funding for research, pro-investment policies, and ensuring operators have access to the necessary spectrum. However, Schmidt acknowledged sanctions against Chinese telecommunications equipment manufacturer Huawei had some impact.
“The move to real 5G speeds will lead to analog breakthroughs in autonomous vehicles, virtual-reality (VR) applications such as the metaverse, and other undiscovered areas. Applications abound that can benefit a country’s intelligence agency and enhance its military capabilities,” they said.
Although 5G is still in its infancy, the race to become a leader in 6G has begun. Research efforts are well underway in Europe, China, Japan, and North America in an effort to become a leader not only in the development of 5G applications and services, but also technologies that will include global standards. Getting to know 5G networks
Became the first operator to provide 5G network services in Indonesia, after pocketing a 5G Certificate of Operation (SKLO) from the Ministry of Communication and Informatics. Telkomsel itself claims 5G services are much more capable than 4G. In terms of speed, for example, 5G download speeds can reach 20 Gbps, or 20 times faster than 4G which is stuck at 1 Gbps.
5G is also claimed to have a latency of 1 ms (10 times lower than 4G) and is able to accommodate about 1 million devices within a radius of 1 km2, 10 times more than 4G technology.
Difference between 4G and 5G
5G network is a fifth generation mobile network that offers higher internet speeds than the previous generation of 4G. 5G networks promise speeds that can make mobile internet on par with Wi-Fi. Technologically, this network is an evolution of our current cellular technology.
4G networks are the fourth generation of wireless technology by using radio towers to deliver telephone and wireless internet service to mobile devices, offering higher speeds. While 5G networks are built on 4G wireless networks, 5G also brings new technologies and wider radio frequencies. 5G towers and transmitters use more antennas and higher frequency radio bands resulting in faster speeds and response times.
If you look at its capacity, in more densely populated locations, 5G is ten times faster than 4G, reaching an average speed of almost 500 Mbps. That’s a huge difference compared to 4G which ranges from 30 Mbps. Under normal conditions, 4G has a maximum speed of 100 Mbps, while 5G reaches 10 Gbps.
Given its availability, 4G networks are available pretty much anywhere – except for remote areas and rural communities with limited mobile access – while 5G coverage is currently limited in cities large and small.
