According to forecasts, commercial testing of 5G networks is set to begin in 2020. But, in the meantime, LTE-Advanced PRO already allows you to use technologies that will be included in 5G.
As mentioned in previous posts, IoT is an uprising concept that will change the world in which we live allowing a more efficient communication between devices. One of the technologies that is making a name for itself among other competitors in the low-power wide-area networks (LPWANs) is LoRa.
In a world where mobile phones play an increasingly significant role in every aspect of our daily lives (whether for work purposes or recreation), cellular networks have to support an enormous amount of traffic to provide good service. Given its peculiarities, Central America is one of those areas where these networks are far more vital than in Europe or the USA.
To support the further growth and development of the Internet of Things (IoT) the mobile industry is developing and standardising a new class of GSM technologies focused on IoT, which is called Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) networks. These technologies enable the new IoT services to expand and be more competitive and hence that is why it has the following advantages.
The advent of 5G technology signifies the start of an even more globally connected society, a completely digital society. This technology, expected to be implemented in 2020, will change the way we interact with each other and objects, allowing us to be permanently connected, both to other people, and to everyday objects like the refrigerator or car.The Internet of things boom is imminent, and depends directly on the evolution of communications networks and the arrival of 5G technologies.
You may not have heard of voice over LTE (VoLTE) technology, but that does not mean you are not using it!
Carriers around the world are deploying this technology to get rid of GSM or CDMA-based circuit networks. The first commercial solution was presented in South Korea in August 2012 and most mobile terminals already support it.
