5G is here and it will soon be the accepted form of wireless cellular technology, replacing your current 4G connection. There have been multiple generations of wireless connectivity, starting with the first commercially automated cellular network, the 1G generation, which was launched in Japan in 1979. Major network operators are currently still using 4G or LTE for most of their customers, but we’re seeing increasing numbers of big operators transitioning to 5G, and some new devices are being created with 5G incorporated from the start.
5G is the fifth generation of mobile broadband, created to provide a better cellular experience. The introduction of 5G brings with it many questions. What is it? What makes it different than previous networks? How does it impact and improve mobile location?
Skyhook has gathered the answers to these questions and more in our latest white paper about 5G and its role in the location technology industry.
