Reliance Jio and Samsung: As Diwali is round the corner, every brand has come up with bonus and bonanzas. The market is filled with different offers and free gifts. One more ‘technical’ gift have been announced by Reliance Jio Infocomm and Samsung Electronics in the upcoming Indian Mobile Congress where they will be coming together to showcase 5G technology in mobile sets.
In partnership with the Samsung Networks,JIO has built the world’s largest green-feild 4G LTE network with supported over 340 million LTE subscribers as on August 2019.At the event Samsung and Jioshow cased the possible business growth on the 5G band network and advancement of 4G LTE and 5G technology.
Reliance Jio and Samsung: “The unprecedented data growth and the mobile internet adoption and revolution that Jio brought to India has fundamentally changed the life of every Indian,” said Mathew Oommen, President of Reliance Jio Infocomm. He also said that, “We as Jio, working closely with key partners like Samsung will ensure that we continue to help India leapfrog traditional technologies by advancing the existing 4G all-IP infrastructure and leverage the end-to-end fiber, 5G, and IoT ecosystems towards a digital infrastructure platform.
What is 5G Network?
Reliance Jio and Samsung: Just as after 2G Network was precedented by 3G Network and 3G Network was replaced by 4G Network. The same way the 4G Network is proposed to be replaced by the 5G Network in India by 2020 or 2021 as per the TRAI schedule.
5G is the fifth generation of the communication technology which will fasten up the downloading speeds. It will also come up with other developments such as lower latency which will be required in extension of loT devices and self-driving technology.
So, it will be better, it will be faster and it will also give place for new applications to develop with bigger and better band than the 4G network.
Limitations of 5G Networks.
Reliance Jio and Samsung: As Physics states that higher frequencies can carry large amounts of data at once, but they are weaker in travelling through the objects. It is that weak that you will be able to stop it by using your hands too. This will simply imply that the 5G network will not be able to reach you in buildings and interior locations unless you use the network booster. Therefore the use of 5G network is restricted to dense urban localities.
5G availability in the world right now
Reliance Jio and Samsung: You can use 5G today, but availability is very limited – large-scale deployment is unlikely before 2020. In the US, AT&T has 5G service in San Francisco, New York City, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, amongst others. T-Mobile serves 5G to San Francisco, Cleveland, Dallas, and other places, while Sprint 5G is available in Houston, Atlanta, and a few other cities. Other cities across the world you can get 5G include Seoul, Sydney, Melbourne, London, Birmingham, Manchester, Milan, Turin, Basel, Zurich, Shanghai, and several more. As you can see, 5G so far seems restricted to dense urban areas, and even then, 5G coverage is usually restricted to business districts.
Devices that support 5G
Reliance Jio and Samsung: Not many devices right now feature the 5G network due to availability of the network is very limited. But devices like Samsung S10 and OnePlus 7 Pro are supporting the 5G feature. Other than these Motorola is also coming up with 5G Moto Mod in the Z3 while LG has V50 ThinQ 5G which is a dual screen device. Xiaomi is bringing the Mi MIX 3 5G. After these, Huawei Mate X which is a foldable device will support 5G. As per Apple devices, it is expected to launch a device with 5G this year.
