5G – Advantages

Robbins, CEO of Cisco: “There is no exaggeration with 5G, it’s an incredible leap”


It promises dramatically improved performance for mobile workers and businesses.

Improves speed, latency and consumption.


What is 5G?

The term 5G refers to the fifth generation mobile network. It presents a new improved technology of the current 4G / LTE, mainly in terms of speed, latency and consumption.
It is a new way of using mobile devices. It offers advantages such as higher connection speed and greater autonomy in the device, despite causing greater performance.While the maximum speed of 4G technology is only 1 Gbps, the International Telecommunications Union has set the speed of 5G to a standard of up to 10Gbps, higher than the fiber optic speed.In short, 5G is the new generation of mobile data.As we have co-emulated, the speed of 5G promises to be much higher than the 4G mobile network and 100 times higher than today’s wireless systems, this is a total revolution in the well-known IoT Internet of things: keep everything connected to your phone ( the house, sanitary services, cars, machines, appliances …)

Another of the numerous advantages of 5G is the reduction of latency. The transfer time of a data packet will be reduced, this latency being between 1 and 4 milliseconds. Communication will be immediate, as will downloading files. 5G technology will be fast, mobile and secure.

Characteristic 4G 4G+ 5G
Speed (Mbps) 200 1200 10000
Latency (milliseconds) 100 20 1-4

Speed ​​and latency also favor better connectivity from more places, as well as the connection of multiple devices simultaneously. MIMO (Multiple-Input Multiple-Output) technology allows us to transfer more data between devices in the same space. This means that if we add more antennas, we can transport more data packets at the same time. That is, a higher transfer rate at the same time. It is what the 5G proposes; Up to 100 more devices connected per area unit compared to 4G and LTE networks.

Lower latency allows to improve the performance of commercial applications and other digital experiences such as online games, videoconferences and cars with autopilot …

While previous generations such as 4G LTE aimed to ensure connectivity, 5G technology takes connectivity to the next level by offering connected cloud experiences to customers. 5G networks are virtualized and run through software, and take advantage of cloud technologies.

The 5G architectures will be software-defined platforms, where network functionality is managed through software rather than through hardware. Advances in virtualization, cloud-based technologies and automation of IT and commercial processes allow the 5G architecture to be agile and flexible and provide user access anytime, anywhere.

5G and Wifi6 will be implemented together in the company

For the IT department of companies, it will be a challenge to manage these access technologies separately, and it will be a priority to have them as integrated systems, with unified policies, security and analysis.

Users and devices should move between 5G and Wi-Fi 6 systems, and the IT manager will want the experience to be perfect and easy to manage at scale.

The 5G network will also simplify mobility, with open roaming capabilities without problems between the cell phone and Wi-Fi access. Mobile users can remain connected while traveling through external wireless connections and wireless networks within the premises without user intervention or the need to have to authenticate again.


Powerx 5G Cisco

Cisco is implementing a cloud-to-customer approach to 5G, unifying multi-vendor solutions into a unique standards-based architecture. It covers multiple clouds, IP routing, 5G core, perimeter service, access networks, IoT and security. It offers the technology you need, where you need it, so you can maintain, and even exceed, what your customers want.
