Here’s What You Need To Know About 5G Network

5G NETWORK – Here is what you need to know about the fifth-generation cellular network or 5G network.

Filipino telcos Philippine Long Distance Telephone (PLDT) and Globe announce that they will be launching 5G network in the Philippines.

The fifth generation of the cellular network or 5G is so far the fastest mobile internet connection. It is capable to host artificial intelligence-driven technologies from driverless cars to healthcare.

Based on a report from ABS-CBN, the testing ground for the 5G technology in the Philippines is in the New Clark Pampanga.

The Globe Telecom Director for Technology Strategy, Gerhard Tan, believed that the latest cellular network will work efficiently on automated systems, driverless cars, and artificial intelligence.

“Kunwari dadaan ang tao sa isang sensor. Pag mabagal ang response time, it means matagal ‘yung latency niya, mabagal niyang maca-capture na may dumaan na palang tao…” 

“Bibilis ‘yung user experience. Buffering matatanggal yan,” he added.

According to the report, the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) Deputy Commissioner, Edgardo Cabarios, said the 5G network is faster and alert than it’s predecessors.

The “multiple in, multiple out” (MIMO) technology will “double, triple, or even quadruple” the performance.

Cabarios said high-end subdivisions get slow internet because they are not allowing cell sites in their villages.

“You must be close to a cell site to enjoy 5G’s high speeds. Ito ‘yung problema mo sa mga high-end subdivision kasi ayaw nila ng cell site sa loob, malayo sila, mabagal,” he said.

Based on the report, Gerhard Tan said the cell sites that is worth P8 million each and red tape could hinder the progress of 5G in the rural areas.

The subscribers are very far from each other. It means you really have to build a couple of sites to serve yung subscribers doon sa area,” said Tan.

Telcos are obviously trying their best to provide good service to their subscribers and avoid introducing a faulty network.
