About a year ago, South Korea was on the papers as it develops 5G network. During that same period, the whole world was busy upgrading its infrastructure to offer 4G connectivity.
Now, the nation has just got a major boost as EU is giving a helping hand to develop new technologies, set standards and allocates radio frequencies for next-gen mobile information and communication works.
The collaboration between the two will ensure that the 5G network will be standardized for the whole world. Despite the team building going on, the dateline for 5G network don’t look like changing at all. South Korea sticks to 2020, as the ideal date of arrival for 5G.
As for the EU, they can’t hide their excitement to be part of the team that will give the world 5G connectivity. EU was on the driving seat of GSM’s development and now, it returns for 5G.
Obviously, development will accelerate from here on. With the Apple iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 coming later this year, manufacturers might want to prepare them for the 5G era. Both the iPhone 6 and the Galaxy Note 4 are expected to re-define speed.
Who knows? We can expect both devices to be tuned for 5G.
