Researchers develop 5G Wireless Technology: The Next G


Achieving 1Tbps wirelessly might not remain a farfetched dream now. Researchers at the University of Sydney have touched the threshold of 5th generation wireless systems of Terrabyte per second. Yes, you guessed it right, downloading 10 movies per second at an uber-speed of 1Tbps.

As indicated by Professor Rahim Tafazolli, director at 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC) the result of this technology is better than the current Samsung’s 7.5Gbps.

For mobile telecommunications standards, 5G would be the subsequent major phase towards future development following the existing 4G standards. Till now, the researchers have tested the advanced wireless technology in University’s closed arena by means of transmitters and receivers and within a distance of 100 meters.

In order to enhance efficiency and to pioneer the uber speed, the team is working towards cutting the time lag between end-to-end to less than 1 msec. The target also includes staying ahead of their competitors, which they are expecting would be from South Korea or Russia hence, the scientists are planning to open the technology to public by the beginning of 2018.

Possibility of the proposed ultra speed does not fit within the concept of real life environment. Nevertheless, networks supporting the breakneck speed need to be developed, which if worked today might take another 5 years.
