The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) defined the speed of 5G (Fifth Generation) standard for mobile networking as 20 Gigabits per second (Gbps).

A decision was taken in this regard at an ITU conference on 5G standard held at San Diego in California of USA between 10 June and 18 June 2015.

The final details for the 5G standard will be confirmed in October 2015, following approval from the 193 ITU member countries.

Features of 5G technology

• In terms of data speeds, data will be transferred at the rate of 20 Gbps that is 20 times faster than the 1Gbps specification for 4G.
• In terms of actual user speeds, customers should receive speeds in the region of 100 to 1000 Mbps under the 5G network compared to that of 10Mbps of 4G.
• The technology is expected to open up access to higher resolution 4K video content and holographic technology via mobile networks.
• It will cater for future internet-of-things (IoT) technologies as 5G will have to be able to provide more than 100 Mbps average data transmission to over 1 million IoT devices within a 1 square kilometre radius.
• It will be called IMT-2020. IMT-2000 was the name for 3G networks and IMT-Advanced for 4G.
• International spectrum for the 5G network should begin distribution in 2019, with commercialized implementations expected sometime in 2020.
