The Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, has listed the benefits which they say Nigeria will enjoy if 5G Network is allowed in the country.
A statement issued reveals that 5G is an improvement from the previous network e.g 1G, 2G, 3G and 4G.
“5G wireless technology is meant to deliver higher data speeds, ultra-low latency, more reliability, massive network capacity, increased availability, and a more uniform user experience to more users.
“5G has the potential to provide 20X faster data speeds and carries a massive amount of data for a large number of simultaneous users. So users in high-density areas – like airports, stadiums or urban areas – can still experience the fast speeds and low latency of 5G service.
“As the world replaces more and more household items with ‘smart devices’ that connect to the internet, also known as the Internet of Things, this network capacity will be critical. 5G will potentially be able to handle more than 2.5 million connected devices per square mile. 5G is a transformational change from 4G.
Features of 5G:
· Faster response time
· Very high capacity
· More software options to upgrade
· Ubiquitous connectivity
· Wide range of applications
· Speed up to 10Gbit/s
· Virtually ‘0’ latency
· 100 times more devices.
Benefits of 5G to Internet of Things:
· Deep coverage – to reach challenging locations.
· Ultra low energy- 10+ years of battery life.
· Ultra-low complexity- 10s bits per second.
· Ultra-low high density -1 million nodes per km2.”
