ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT 5G NETWORK.

ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES

The expectations of 5G - The Digital Transformation People

5G is the fifth generation of wireless communications technologies supporting cellular data networks. Large-scale adoption began in 2019 and today virtually every telecommunication service provider in the developed world is upgrading its infrastructure to offer 5G functionality. 5G communication requires the use of communications devices (mostly mobile phone) designed to support the technology.

5G – Introduction

Radio technologies have evidenced a rapid and multi-directional evolution with the launch of the analogue cellular systems in 1980s. Thereafter, digital wireless communication systems are consistently on a mission to fulfill the growing need of human beings (1G, …4G, or now 5G).

So, this article describes the 5G technology emphasizing on its salient features, technological design (architecture), advantages, shortcomings, challenges, and future scope.

Salient Features of 5G

5th Generation Mobile Network or simply 5G is the forthcoming revolution of mobile technology. The features and its usability are much beyond the expectation of a normal human being. With its ultra-high speed, it is potential enough to change the meaning of a cell phone usability.

With a huge array of innovative features, now your smart phone would be more parallel to the laptop. You can use broadband internet connection; other significant features that fascinate people are more gaming options, wider multimedia options, connectivity everywhere, zero latency, faster response time, and high quality sound and HD video can be transferred on other cell phone without compromising with the quality of audio and video

5G – Technology

If we look back, we will find that every next decade, one generation is advancing in the field of mobile technology. Starting from the First Generation (1G) in 1980s, Second Generation (2G) in 1990s, Third Generation (3G) in 2000s, Fourth Generation (4G) in 2010s, and now Fifth Generation (5G), we are advancing towards more and more sophisticated and smarter technology.

What is 5G Technology?

The 5G technology is expected to provide a new (much wider than the previous one) frequency bands along with the wider spectral bandwidth per frequency channel. As of now, the predecessors (generations) mobile technologies have evidenced substantial increase in peak bitrate. Then — how is 5G different from the previous one (especially 4G)? The answer is — it is not only the increase in bitrate made 5G distinct from the 4G, but rather 5G is also advanced in terms of −

  • High increased peak bit rate
  • Larger data volume per unit area (i.e. high system spectral efficiency)
  • High capacity to allow more devices connectivity concurrently and instantaneously
  • Lower battery consumption
  • Better connectivity irrespective of the geographic region, in which you are
  • Larger number of supporting devices
  • Lower cost of infrastructural development
  • Higher reliability of the communications

As researchers say, with the wide range of bandwidth radio channels, it is able to support the speed up to 10 Gbps, the 5G WiFi technology will offer contiguous and consistent coverage − “wider area mobility in true sense.”

5G – Architecture

Architecture of 5G is highly advanced, its network elements and various terminals are characteristically upgraded to afford a new situation. Likewise, service providers can implement the advance technology to adopt the value-added services easily.

However, upgradeability is based upon cognitive radio technology that includes various significant features such as ability of devices to identify their geographical location as well as weather, temperature, etc. Cognitive radio technology acts as a transceiver (beam) that perceptively can catch and respond radio signals in its operating environment. Further, it promptly distinguishes the changes in its environment and hence respond accordingly to provide uninterrupted quality service.

Architecture of 5G

As shown in the following image, the system model of 5G is entirely IP based model designed for the wireless and mobile networks.

The system comprising of a main user terminal and then a number of independent and autonomous radio access technologies. Each of the radio technologies is considered as the IP link for the outside internet world. The IP technology is designed exclusively to ensure sufficient control data for appropriate routing of IP packets related to a certain application connections i.e. sessions between client applications and servers somewhere on the Internet. Moreover, to make accessible routing of packets should be fixed in accordance with the given policies of the user (as shown in the image given below).

The Master Core Technology

As shown in the Figure 5, the 5G MasterCore is convergence point for the other technologies, which have their own impact on existing wireless network. Interestingly, its design facilitates MasterCore to get operated into parallel multimode including all IP network mode and 5G network mode. In this mode (as shown in the image given below), it controls all network technologies of RAN and Different Access Networks (DAT). Since, the technology is compatible and manages all the new deployments (based on 5G), it is more efficient, less complicated, and more powerful.

Surprisingly, any service mode can be opened under 5G New Deployment Mode as World Combination Service Mode (WCSM). WCSM is a wonderful feature of this technology; for example, if a professor writes on the white board in a country – it can be displayed on another white board in any other part of the world besides conversation and video. Further, a new services can be easily added through parallel multimode service.

5G – Time Period Required

Normally, it is expected that the time period required for the 5G technology development and its implementation is about five years more from now (by 2020). But to becoming usable for the common people in developing countries, it could be even more.

Graph 1 − Showing the Timeline of all previous generation technologies.

Expected Time Length

By considering the multiple utility and various fashionable salient features, researchers are anticipating that this technology will be in use until 2040s.

5G – Applications

5G technology is adorned with many as well as distinct features, which applicability is useful for a wide range people irrespective of their purposes (as shown in the mweb image).

Applications of 5G

Some of the significant applications are −

  • It will make unified global standard for all.
  • Network availability will be everywhere and will facilitate people to use their computer and such kind of mobile devices anywhere anytime.
  • Because of the IPv6 technology, visiting care of mobile IP address will be assigned as per the connected network and geographical position.
  • Its application will make world real Wi Fi zone.
  • Its cognitive radio technology will facilitate different version of radio technologies to share the same spectrum efficiently.
  • Its application will facilitate people to avail radio signal at higher altitude as well.

5G – Advancement

Application of 5G is very much equivalent to accomplishment of dream. It is integrated with beyond the limit advance features in comparison to the previous technologies.

Advanced Features

In comparison to previous radio technologies, 5G has following advancement −

  • Practically possible to avail the super speed i.e. 1 to 10 Gbps.

  • Feasibility to connect 10 to 100 number of devices.
  • Worldwide coverage.
  • About 90% reduction in network energy usage.
  • Battery life will be much longer.
  • Whole world will be in wi fi zone.

5G – Advantages & Disadvantages

5th generation technology offers a wide range of features, which are beneficial for all group of people including, students, professionals (doctors, engineers, teachers, governing bodies, administrative bodies, etc.) and even for a common man.

Important Advantages

There are several advantages of 5G technology, some of the advantages have been shown in the above Ericsson image, and many others are described below −

  • High resolution and bi-directional large bandwidth shaping.
  • Technology to gather all networks on one platform.
  • More effective and efficient.
  • Technology to facilitate subscriber supervision tools for the quick action.
  • Most likely, will provide a huge broadcasting data (in Gigabit), which will support more than 60,000 connections.
  • Easily manageable with the previous generations.
  • Technological sound to support heterogeneous services (including private network).
  • Possible to provide uniform, uninterrupted, and consistent connectivity across the world.
Some Other Advantages for the Common People

Visualizing universe, galaxies, and planets will be possible.
Possible to locate and search the missing person.
Possible, natural disaster including tsunami, earthquake etc. can be detected faster.

Disadvantages of 5G Technology

Though, 5G technology is researched and conceptualized to solve all radio signal problems and hardship of mobile world, but because of some security reason and lack of technological advancement in most of the geographic regions, it has following shortcomings −

  • Technology is still under process and research on its viability is going on.
  • The speed, this technology is claiming seems difficult to achieve (in future, it might be) because of the incompetent technological support in most parts of the world.
  • Many of the old devices would not be competent to 5G, hence, all of them need to be replaced with new one — expensive deal.
  • Developing infrastructure needs high cost.
  • Security and privacy issue yet to be solved.
  •  

5G – Challenges

Challenges are the inherent part of the new development; so, like all technologies, 5G has also big challenges to deal with. As we see past i.e. development of radio technology, we find very fast growth. Starting from 1G to 5G, the journey is merely of about 40 years old (Considering 1G in 1980s and 5G in 2020s). However, in this journey, the common challenges that we observed are lack of infrastructure, research methodology, and cost.

Still, there are dozens of countries using 2G and 3G technologies and don’t know even about 4G, in such a condition, the most significant questions in everyone’s mind are −

  • How far will 5G be viable?
  • Will it be the technology of some of the developed countries or developing countries will also get benefit of this?

To understand these questions, the challenges of 5G are categorized into the following two headings −

  • Technological Challenges
  • Common Challenges

Technological Challenges

  • Inter-cell Interference − This is one of the major technological issues that need to be solved. There is variations in size of traditional macro cells and concurrent small cells that will lead to interference.
  • Efficient Medium Access Control − In a situation, where dense deployment of access points and user terminals are required, the user throughput will be low, latency will be high, and hotspots will not be competent to cellular technology to provide high throughput. It needs to be researched properly to optimize the technology.
  • Traffic Management − In comparison to the traditional human to human traffic in cellular networks, a great number of Machine to Machine (M2M) devices in a cell may cause serious system challenges i.e. radio access network (RAN) challenges, which will cause overload and congestion.

Common Challenges

  • Multiple Services − Unlike other radio signal services, 5G would have a huge task to offer services to heterogeneous networks, technologies, and devices operating in different geographic regions. So, the challenge is of standardization to provide dynamic, universal, user-centric, and data-rich wireless services to fulfil the high expectation of people.
  • Infrastructure − Researchers are facing technological challenges of standardization and application of 5G services.
  • Communication, Navigation, & Sensing − These services largely depend upon the availability of radio spectrum, through which signals are transmitted. Though 5G technology has strong computational power to process the huge volume of data coming from different and distinct sources, but it needs larger infrastructure support.
  • Security and Privacy − This is one of the most important challenges that 5G needs to ensure the protection of personal data. 5G will have to define the uncertainties related to security threats including trust, privacy, cyber-security, which are growing across the globe.
  • Legislation of Cyberlaw − Cyber-crime and other fraud may also increase with the high speed and ubiquitous 5G technology. Therefore, legislation of the Cyber-law is also an imperative issue, which largely is governmental and political (national as well as international issue) in nature.

5G – Future Scope

Several researches and discussions are going on across the world among technologists, researchers, academicians, vendors, operators, and governments about the innovations, implementation, viability, and security concerns of 5G.

As proposed, loaded with multiple advance features starting from the super high speed internet service to smooth ubiquitous service, 5G will unlock many of the problems. However, the question is — in a situation, where the previous technologies (4G and 3G) are still under process and in many parts yet to be started; what will be the future of 5G?

5th generation technology is designed to provide incredible and remarkable data capabilities, unhindered call volumes, and immeasurable data broadcast within the latest mobile operating system. Hence, it is more intelligent technology, which will interconnect the entire world without limits. Likewise, our world would have universal and uninterrupted access to information, communication, and entertainment that will open a new dimension to our lives and will change our life style meaningfully.

Moreover, governments and regulators can use this technology as an opportunity for the good governance and can create healthier environments, which will definitely encourage continuing investment in 5G, the next generation technology.

Ghana Union of Professional Students; Presents A Three day Study Abroad Summit

THEME: MAXIMIZING THE BENEFITS OF INTERNATIONAL EDUCATIONAL FOR SOCIAL CHARGE.

The Ghana Union of Professional Students was established twenty (20) years ago with more than five – hundred thousand (500.000) members dotted across tertiary institutions in the country.

The union was formed to fight for the rights and interest of professional students in Ghana as well as offer them guidance in their fields of specializations to further improve upon their knowledge and skills.

GUPS, has been one of the vibrant student unions in the country championing the interest of Ghanaian students under its purview.

The programme is organized by The Ghana Union Of Professional Students (GUPS) under the auspices of Hon. Emily Jemima Nyarko, the international relations secretary for the union.

Studies show that graduates with an international experience find employment faster and are more prepared than those without it. Yet less than 2% of Ghanaian students graduate with a global experience.

The Study Abroad Submit with the theme “Maximizing the Benefit of International Education for Social Change” will aim at Educating, Influencing, Shaping Visions, Raising Leaders , Changing the African narratives, Orienting and Promoting Study abroad and its relevance to the development of  Ghana and Africa at large .The program will also educate students on how to easily obtain scholarships abroad and prepare for it.

International education is a catalyst for leading change around the world

The world of international education is a melting pot of individuals and learning with a global perspective ensures students are exposed to different cultures, ethnic groups, religions and languages, enriching society in the process and broadening the academic experience for everyone.

A growing global trend, education is at the forefront of global development and, with globalization making it easier than ever for families to move abroad for work and study opportunities, it’s easy to see the appeal of pursuing an international education.

Vision

To bring together leaders and practitioners from education, government and business for action-oriented discussion on global workforce readiness. Many more Ghanaian students need to be extended on the opportunity to gain an international experience abroad so that they can be prepared to become leaders in tech, science, innovation, and solving some of the pressing problems in our interconnected world.

As the world becomes globalized and digitalized, the relationship between entrepreneurship, leadership and innovation and technology cannot be overemphasized. Good communication is necessary to allow efficient flow of information in a business. Technology provides multiple channels for businesses to communicate both internally and externally. Whether it’s setting up virtual workspaces where employees can interact and develop ideas, or connecting to international businesses through the use of video conferencing, technology can be used as an outlet which allows businesses to collect feedback from their customers, which can used to improve or alter a product to suit the needs of the customers better.

Physically this summit was organized in Peshawar with having 630 attendees from across Pakistan. For Virtual edition 500 participants was selected to attend this summit out of 4000 + Applications. Youth International Conclave is an Organization currently working in 31 Countries founded by Engineer Umar Farooq Gul back in 2019 for the purpose to connect youth from all over the World & provide them Opportunities by giving the trainings & by organizing different summit / conferences for them so that they can develop their Entrepreneurship, Leadership & Digital skills.

YIC is an organization committed to youth development programs. Established with the aim of bringing potential youths across the globe for them to connect with each other in various fields such as cultural, technical, education, learning platform, and business. YIC’s effort is to organize various programs and generate opportunities for youths to fulfill the needs of today’s society and birth tomorrow’s leaders. Moreover, in implementing the vision of “Bridging Youth Leadership across the World”, YIC believes that every person deserves the opportunity to learn new things and generate the potential that is hidden in them.

On the leadership section, Youth International Conclave, edges with and without intellectual disabilities, one have to reins on initiatives and programming at the local and state levels, inevitably changing the way those initiatives and programs look, every Youth must involved in decision making at the grassroots level to enable the younger generation of leaders pave way for the new societal ‘norms,’. Also the forum provided an opportunity for young leaders to develop the soft skills that can make them successful leaders in their future.

Youth International Conclave believes Youth leadership is powerful, and it’s our responsibility to find avenues for every student to develop as a leader. When we further engage in an intergenerational way, the benefits are compounded for students, adults, and the school community.

On the entrepreneur sector, YIC educated individuals the prospect of work. And also edges them to always have a strong drive to succeed and overcome obstacles. They should not only set big goals for themselves but also see that they are actually committed to achieving them regardless of the countless setbacks that occur. “A successful entrepreneur always has a strong sense of self-confidence and a healthy opinion of their skills and abilities. Their personality is assertive and strong. They are always focused and do not really dilly dally with the issues at hand. This is what makes them different from the rest.”

On 29th October, a virtual version of YIC Leadership & Entrepreneurship Summit was organized to enable participants who had interest but wouldn’t took part in the live event.

Facebook is changing its name to Meta

Facebook’s new corporate name is Meta, CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced on Thursday, in an apparent effort to recast the company’s public image from battered social network to tech innovator focused on building the next generation of online interaction known as the “metaverse.”

“It is time for us to adopt a new company brand to encompass everything that we do,” Zuckerberg said at the company’s Connect virtual reality conference. “From now on we’re going to be metaverse first, not Facebook first.”

Seventeen years after Zuckerberg founded Facebook in his Harvard dorm room, the company’s brand has been badly dented by a succession of crises, from Russian interference in the 2016 election to the Cambridge Analytica data privacy scandal, which became public in 2018, to the last month’s damaging revelations from former employee turned whistleblower Frances Haugen.

But even as Facebook has been pummeled by a wave of critical news coverage about its platforms’ harms based on Haugen’s trove of internal documents, Zuckerberg has unapologetically kept his focus on what he sees as the company’s future. He said the metaverse is the next big computing platform to which people’s attention, and dollars, will shift in the coming years. And he wants the newly christened Meta to play a prime role in creating it, and turning it into big business.
