5G Network for Smart Phones, Tablets and more…Who will be the First!
5G (5th generation mobile networks or 5th generation wireless systems) is a name used in some research papers and projects to denote the next major phase of mobile telecommunications standards beyond the upcoming 4G standards (expected to be finalized between approximately 2011 and 2013). Currently, 5G is not a term officially used for any particular specification or in any official document yet made public by telecommunication companies or standardization bodies such as 3GPP, WiMAX Forum or ITU-R. New standard releases beyond 4G are in progress by standardization bodies, but at this time are not considered as new mobile generations since implementation and rollout of systems compliant with 4G is still under way; the goals of a 5G-based telecommunications network would ideally answer the challenges that a 4G model would present once it has entered widespread use.
As most countries are settling into 3G or 4G Korea are taking a big leap into 5G – the 5th generation which theyhave planed for 2012. Korea and Japan are the two countries that have been known to be aggressive in various hi-def media streaming and online gaming. They definitely need much higher bandwidth to deliver what their peoples needs.
Who will be the first network to launch 5G service, Sprint? AT&T? Verizon?
Who will be the first smartphone or tablet maker to make a 5G capable device….Apple iPhone or iPad, HTC, Google, Smasung, Motorola, Dell?
