5g Internet


  • No one company or person owns 5G, but there are several companies within the mobile ecosystem that are contributing to bringing 5G to life.
  • We are at the heart of the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP).

3GPP is the industry organization that defines the global specifications for 3G UMTS (including HSPA), 4G LTE, and 5G technologies.

  • 3GPP is driving many essential inventions across all aspects of 5G design, from the air interface to the service layer.
  • Other 3GPP 5G members range from infrastructure vendors and component/device manufacturers to mobile network operators and vertical service providers.

      IASbhai WINDUP: 

  • 1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G all led to 5G, which is designed to provide more connectivity than was ever available before.
  • With high speeds, superior reliability and negligible latency, 5G will expand the mobile ecosystem into new realms.
