Looking forward to the year 2020 and exceeding, there will be fiery growth in mobile data traffic. It is evaluated that the global mobile #data traffic will grow by more than 200 times from 2010 to 2020 and by nearly 20,000 times from 2010 to 2030.
With mobile data #traffic being expected to grow by more than 200 times from 2010 to 2020 let's explore more about 5G communications.
Major factors that are driving the Small Cell #5G Network Market size are increased network densification, increased mobile data trade, and the introduction of the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) band. Hence, 5G is soon going to boost up the future market in the near future.

Much faster than 4G
When the 4G is lagging behind in connecting a diverse number of internet users simultaneously 5G is changing the realms of wireless technology. In terms of efficiency, speed, eliminating network congestion, and many more which is going to build the new era of technology.
5G is designed to handle many more devices and many new applications which will make life easier for users and provide more opportunities for advertisers to run ads on all these new applications.
Powerful phones - In order to keep pace with higher speeds, manufacturers are creating smartphones that are more powerful than ever before. That is a bit of a blessing and a curse for consumers, though, like that brand new phone that you just splashed a lot of money on will soon become antiquated.
Privacy concerns - We have all become a little too attached and dependent on our phones, as we now use them for everything from paying bills to online shopping. While this creates a lot of opportunities for ad serving, it also creates an issue in making sure that all the data and interactions are kept safe and secure.
Security - Every wireless technology has somewhere loopholes in the aspect of the security of the user's data. With the help of 5G, it will help us to deal with sensitive data applications as well as from breach of data. The potential issue will be taken into consideration for the betterment of people and society. 5G will also address smart cities and devices for acknowledgment of safety.
Evolution of Wireless Technologies
G. Marconi, an Italian inventor, unlocks the way of recent day wireless communications by communicating the letter ‘S’ along with a distance of 3Km in the form of three-dot Morse code with the help of electromagnetic waves. After this inception, wireless communications have become a significant part of present-day society.
A summary of the growing wireless technologies is given below:
1G: At the beginning of the 1980s, 1G was introduced in our world. It has a data rate of up to 2.4kbps. Major subscribers were the Advanced Mobile Phone System (AMPS), Nordic Mobile Telephone (NMT), and Total Access Communication System (TACS).
2G: The 2nd generation was prefaced in the late 1990s. Digital technology is used in 2nd generation mobile telephones. Global Systems for Mobile communications (GSM) was the first 2nd generation system, chiefly used for voice communication and having a data rate of up to 64kbps.
2.5G: It commonly subscribes to a 2nd generation cellular system blended with General Packet Radio Services (GPRS). It can assist data rates of up to 144kbps.
3G: The 3rd generation was authorized in late 2000. It confers the transmission rate up to 2Mbps. Third generation (3G) systems synthesize high-speed mobile entree to services based on Internet Protocol (IP).
3.75G: Long-Term Evolution technology (LTE) and Fixed Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) is the destiny of mobile data services.
4G: 4G is usually referred to as the descendant of the 3G and 2G norms. Applications that are being made to use a 4G network are Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS), Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB), and video chat, etc.
5G: With the rapid increase in the demand of the users, 4G will now be easily substituted with 5G with a superior access technology named Beam Division Multiple Access (BDMA) and others. It excels in higher capacity, higher data rate, lower End to End latency, massive device connectivity, and so on.
In the near future, i.e., beyond 4G, some of the principal objectives or demands that need to be marked are increased capacity, improved data rate, decreased latency, and better quality of service. To meet these demands, drastic improvements need to be made in cellular network architecture.
