1.1 New And Evolving Applications In 5G Networks
Most users are under the impression that 5G will simply provide higher data rates. This is true; the transport capacity will increase due to the additional spectrum made available by licensing 5G frequencies to operators. It will surely improve the download experience, especially in heavily loaded areas.
But 5G is more than just higher data rates. The main advantage lies in the scalable network slices that support the individual transport requirements for critical and less critical applications. These network slices can be tuned for extremely short latencies, especially for reliable connections and peak transport rates.
