The world is going crazy about 5G. Should India be allowing Huawei? The question has gathered more importance in view of US President Donald Trump's visit to India. But what is 5G, what can it achieve? Let's find out.

5G is super-fast internet. How fast? It has a peak data rate of 20 Gigabits per second. Compare that with 4G, which has a peak data rate of 1 Gigabits per second. But the 4G we user experience is slow, isn't it? This is due to the lower reach, which is portrayed through User Experience Data Rate. In 5G this is 100 Megabits per second while 4G has 10 Megabits per second. This means, 5G it at least 10 times faster.

In 5G, the spectrum becomes three times more efficient. Its unreliability decreases by 10 times, i.e. the latency becomes 1. While 4G supports1 lakh devices in 1 square km, 5G can support 10 lakh devices.

Considering the above, 5G is considered to be revolutionary. It can facilitate the Internet of Things. In words of the Government itself, "5G technology has the potential for ushering a major societal transformation in India by enabling a rapid expansion of the role of information technology across manufacturing, educational, healthcare, agricultural, financial and social sectors. The 5G can unleash new economic opportunities and societal benefits to the extent that it may transform Indian society and help in actualizing the ‘Digital India’ vision."
