3 5 G uses radio waves or radio frequency (RF) energy to transmit and receive voice and data connecting our communities. What is 5 G? 5 G is the 5 th generation of mobile networks, a significant evolution of todays 4 G LTE networks. 5 G is being designed to meet the very large growth in data and connectivity of today’s modern society, the internet of things with billions of connected devices, and tomorrow’s innovations. 5 G will initially operate in conjunction with existing 4 G networks before evolving to fully standalone networks in subsequent releases and coverage expansions. In addition to delivering faster connections and greater capacity, a very important advantage of 5 G is the fast response time referred to as latency. Latency is the time taken for devices to respond to each other over the wireless network. 3 G networks had a typical response time of 100 milliseconds, 4 G is around 30 milliseconds and 5 G will be as low as 1 millisecond. This is virtually instantaneous opening up a new world of connected applications.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
