5G Tech: How Far Along Are We With The Next Broadband Revolution?

5G Tech: How Far Along Are We With The Next Broadband Revolution?

With a Mediacom Internet subscription, you can access many informative resources online that comprehensively detail everything to do with 5G technology, and its historical trajectory to expected future manifestations/implications

The advent of the much-anticipated 5G Tech Revolution will soon be upon us, and its anticipation has gotten many powerful I.T based electronic companies like Samsung and Huawei scrambling to manufacture 5G-incorporated gadgetry (to be deployed in the popular consumer marketplace by 2020 onwards). With Mediacom Internet, you can follow the trends incumbent in the mobile networking industry easily – particularly as they pertain to the expected launch of 5G technology into the mainstream.

Expectations Awaiting Fulfillment

When finally here, many telecom industry analysts predict that the largescale deployment of 5G broadcast networks will have the greatest impact on the field of video and other multimedia content marketing. With expected normal download speed rates in the blazing 100 Mbps to 2.3 Gbps range, it is not hard to envision why video streaming (most probably in Ultra HD and superior graphics resolutions) is expected to take the majority share of all 5G data transmission pursuits.

But right now, most experts only have the historical precedent of such bodies like the GSMA, as they attempted to control the trajectory of the mobile broadband industry in the past, to forecast how policy regulation will impact the new technology. In accordance with this starting principle, what they anticipate is nevertheless exciting and of revolutionary fervor – in mostly every conceivable sense.

China, South Korea and Japan With An Edge…

Based on current estimates of public/private partnership in the telecom arena,

  • China,
  • South Korea,
  • The U.S
  • And Japan

will probably be some of the first countries to take the lead in popularizing 5G tech within their national borders; with China expected to be the very first nation from this list to do so. China already has the infrastructural capacity to make this feat realizable with the advantage of time; with its sprawling network of broadcasting hubs already capable of delivering spectrum wireless frequencies (which are necessary for 5G deployment over the air).

Envisioning An IoT World

The IoT (Internet of Things) technological ideal factors-in greatly into the 5G debate, since the new internet broadcasting facility will be primarily used by the bulk of hardware manufacturers to connect their electronic devices more seamlessly to each other, and to humans. In addition, electric car manufacturers are reportedly devising new ways to integrate 5G capabilities into their‘self-driving’ automobiles of the future; to make blazing data download and upload speeds accessible to the public at all times, and in all locations.

The motivations behind pursuing IoT springs from the understanding that a more holistically connected world will reap greater analytical and experiential advantages for people, who will have more accurate data at their disposal during the realization of both their personal & professional endeavors. ISP companies, such as Mediacom with its Mediacom Deals offering, are also likely to benefit greatly from this technological sea change in the broadband sector – and not only through an increased variety of roaming subscription plans.

PyeongChang – Winter Olympics 2018

One of the most recent test trials of popular 5G deployment came during the 2018 Winter Olympics held in PyeongChang, South Korea – where the main games stadium played host to a number of multimedia recording devices (cameras) that captured live footage in HD using the new technology. Media analysts, and public spectators at large, were left to marvel at the great precision with which the obscure gadgetry managed to broadcast all the sporting spectacles on state TV and a host of international channels; with no perceivable evidence of audio/video lags to bog down the entertainment experience of viewers rooting eagerly for their favorite teams.

Test Trials Underway In The Entertainment Sector

According to some media records, popular online video streaming platforms like Netflix and Hulu (which air their content in both HD and Ultra HD resolutions requiring consistent net bandwidth rates in the 3 Mbps to 25Mbps range) have also started experimenting with simulations that attempt to mimic the impact which 5G broadcasting will likely have on their subscribers’ home entertainment sessions.

This provision would naturally allow their users to stream movies and TV shows in even higher resolution displays, and download entire HD film productions within a matter of seconds. Currently offered 4.5G (LTE) services by some digital carriers aims to capture some of the technological fever expected to accrue through 5G use, with many device manufacturers expected to shift their production standards in favor of 5G assimilation during the 2019-20 development phase.

To learn more about how 5G is likely to change the digital entertainment and connectivity terrain in the years to come, consider subscribing to a Mediacom Channel Packages subscription plan, and accessing the many informational resources that provide more details on this enamoring subject.
