5G network has a remarkable growth speed compared to 4G

After just half a year, the 5G network has been deployed by more than 30 carriers in the world.

In 2013, after 6 months of launching, 4G network only appeared in 4 countries and 3 suppliers participated in manufacturing equipment. Not to mention, the first-time network quality is not appreciated by experts due to the lack of synchronization and the actual quality is not as introduced. However, over the same period of 2019, more than 30 carriers in the world launched 5G, although this broadband technology is much harder to deploy than 4G.

“Up to now, converting 5G is the most complicated but also the fastest process we’ve ever experienced,” said a Qualcomm representative. Not only that, 5G is also welcomed by many users. In South Korea, in the last two quarters, phone companies have sold two million smartphones supporting 5G networks.

Most major phone manufacturers like Samsung, Huawei, and Xiaomi have had at least one model that supports 5G networks released this year. According to Qualcomm, support for 5G will become “natural” equipment with high-end models of each company launched in 2020.

Compared to 4G, 5G network has many outstanding advantages in terms of network speed, low latency and higher stability, especially the ability to stay connected between IoT devices – the future of technological development. . New connectivity technology will help companies easily build intelligent plants as well as applications in intelligent transportation.

Along with 5G network research, Qualcomm representatives said the company has been working on AI for about 10 years now. The company focuses on deep learning technology and artificial neural networks, while most companies in this area are focusing more on cloud computing such as Alexa, Google AI or Siri. The data transmission to the cloud reduces stability and users are also skeptical about the possibility of personal information leakage.

Instead of processing artificial intelligence in the “cloud”, Qualcomm introduced “AI on the edge” technology that helps process data and deploy AI algorithms in a small center, closer to the device. This technology helps to ensure the transmission line is easy, stable, and ensures the confidentiality and safety for users.

In the example of the benefits of combining the new AI and 5G, Qualcomm said companies can build a complete intelligent transport system. Fixed cameras, car cameras, and a range of sensors on nearby vehicles will be seamlessly transferred to the Edge Cloud local cloud processing stations. Here, AI technology will produce full predictive results for better traffic signal processing or better self-driving cars.

According to Qualcomm, the end of 2019 and 2020 will be an important period of transition from 4G to 5G. However, the development and construction roadmap of each country will be different, depending on the needs as well as the infrastructure conditions of the network operators.

First, carriers will build and deploy non-standalone mode (5G). This means that LTE 4G and 5G are jointly deployed on low frequencies, also known as Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS). This helps carriers quickly develop 5G coverage so that 4G and 5G users can share it on the same channel. Next, the infrastructure will continue to be built to deploy standalone mode.

In early August, a network operator in Vietnam began deploying its first 5G base station. A domestic smartphone company, VinSmart, confirmed that it will launch a 5G smartphone in the middle of next year as well as produce and build some telecommunications equipment for 5G.
