Difference between 4G and 5G
4G is a mobile phone network technology, and like its predecessor 3G, it can be used for downloading data and accessing internet, but the difference is that it’s a lot faster than 3G.
5G is the fifth generation of wireless network technology.It is built on what’s called millimeter waves, a section of very high frequency spectrum upwards of 20 GHz all the way up to 96 GHz.
Difference between 4G and 5G:
|S No.||4G technology||5G technology|
|1.||It stands for Fourth Generation technology||It stands for Fifth Generation technology|
|2.||The maximum upload rate of 4G technology is 500 Mbps||While the maximum upload rate of 5G technology is 1.25 Gbps|
|3.||The maximum download rate of 4G technology is 1 Gbps||While the maximum download rate of 5G technology is 2.5 Gbps.|
|4.||The latency of 4G technology is about 50 ms||While the latency of 5G technology is about 1 ms|
|5.||4G offers CDMA||While 5G offers OFDM, BDMA|
|6.||4G can’t differentiate between fixed and mobile devices||While 5G has the capability to differentiate between fixed and mobile devices. It uses cognitive radio techniques to identify each device and offer the most appropriate delivery channel.|
|7.||4G has the advantages of high speed handoffs, global mobility||While 5G has the advantages of extremely high speeds, low latency|
|8.||4G can be used for high speed applications, mobile TV, wearable devices||While 5G can be used for high resolution video streaming, remote control of vehicles, robots and medical procedures|
|9.||It is slow and less efficient in comparison of 5G||It is fast and more efficient than 4G|
