Difference Between 4G, 5G, and 6G Technology

Mobile users using the networks of telecommunication providers available in the country are familiar with 4G network connections. Zong was the first company to launch 4G services in Pakistan in 2014. It has been eight years, and now is the time to move towards a network that is fast and capable as well as connected to more than 4G devices. The PTA aims to introduce 5G, and the latest technology will be available in April 2023.

 What is 4G network technology?

4G is the fourth generation wireless connectivity that provides speeds of up to 100 Mbps. 4G download speeds allow users to stream high-definition video and audio. A 4G connection uses an antenna to transmit radio frequencies, allowing mobile devices to connect to the mobile network.

How is 5G different from 4G?

5G is 100 times faster than 4G. The 4G network also encountered some difficulties in handling multiple devices in one place, which users may have experienced during crowded sporting events or concerts. With 5G, as the number of devices connected to the network increases by approximately 25% each year, the ability to connect more devices becomes more crucial. The 5G network form to connects not only smartphones but also a variety of other devices. As more and more new types of connected devices add over time, each of them will need a connection with different levels of performance and features, which a 5G network can provide. The built-in processing capabilities of the 5G network are capable of handling rigorous processing tasks. The 5G network will also help develop new types of battery-powered devices, such as lightweight AR goggles and an integrated fleet of integrated delivery drones. The 5G network slice can be designed for a specific purpose and as a stand-alone network.

What differentiates 6G from 5G?

6G technology is even more advanced than 5G technology, which claims to provide speeds of 1 Tbps or 8,000 Gbps. For example, 6G network users can download 142 hours of high-quality Netflix video every second. This network uses a different spectrum than 5G, which allows it to have multiple use cases to improve its performance for various industrial sectors. Furthermore, 6G can connect up to ten times more devices per square kilometer as the number of connected devices will increase in the coming years. Furthermore, 4G networks offer delays of approximately 50 milliseconds (ms), while 5G networks have ten times fewer delays than 4G-5ms. In the case of 6G, latency expects to be between 1 millisecond and 1 microsecond, which will allow a large amount of data transmission in less than a second. This upcoming network technology overcomes the shortcomings of existing networks, improves network design, and improves the network. Compatible with modern artificial intelligence systems and power systems.
