In theory, 5G network with speeds of up to 20Gbps, which is expected to hit the market in 2020.In the last period (10/6 to 18/6), 12 representatives of the ITU (International Telecommunication Union) have convened to provide the detailed specifications for the 5G network standards will be developed declaration in the near future. Finally, ITU has launched a formal decision about the maximum speed that can be achieved 5G network is 20Gbps, ie 20 times the current speed of the 4G LTE network, stands at 1Gbps.Note that the above parameters based only on theory, in practice the network speed will be much lower 5G. At the present time, the fastest network speeds are belong LTE Cat 9, with maximum speeds of up to 300Mbps. The real figure is 'less' than the specifications of 4G LTE (1Gbps). This also means that the rate will not reach 5G as what the ITU has announced. If the actual parameters as ITU launched the theory that you can download a movie-quality 'super-sharp' within 1 second.
5G network will towards internet devices-of-things (IoT), it can serve more than 1 million IoT devices are within 1km2, with an average speed of over 100Mbps.
ITU is currently proposed official name for 5G networks will be IMT-2020, and final results will be released in October next. Previously, 4G IMT-Advanced is called, while 3G standard known as IMT-2000.
ITU is expected to commercialize 5G network to the enterprise in 2020. But the immediate future, it will be deployed to serve the Winter Olympics in the 23 th 2018, took place in the city of Pyeongchang, South Korea.
