Brief Description of 5G

5G, (fifth generation of wireless technology) is a technology based upon previous communications technologies infrastructure which allows devices and networks to receive and broadcast data which includes media wirelessly. The major difference of 5th generation compared to that of its predecessors is the frequency spectrum at which it operates. 5G provides faster connection speeds and broader bandwidth. However this comes at an expense of higher microwave frequencies and many more repeaters or cell sites as the 5G is a higher microwave frequency. The higher the wave, the shorter distances it can travel.
