What are the Three Main Features of 5G

The Superfast fifth-generation, or 5G, provides new ways of implementing wireless networking, connecting everyone and everything, everywhere. It has ultra-low latency, increased reliability, large data rates, increased network availability. 5G has three main features that makes this technology so special: eMBB, URLCC, and mMTC.

First, eMBB (or enhanced Mobile Broadband) allows a higher data bandwidth, in other words, it provides a high number of data being transferred rapidly. This feature is mainly used in mobile devices, for instance, to develop AR/VR applications, streaming sports games or concerts, download high-resolution videos, or play online games. It is also being used in industrial scenarios, for instance, to develop 3D models or to implement automated inspections (as AOI).

Second, the URLLC (or Ultra-Reliable Low Latency Communications) provides a high probability of delivering data successfully within a certain period of time. Indeed, the latency of 5G is 1-10 milliseconds and it has a 99.99% reliability. A popular implementation of this important feature is the development of critical autonomous machinery or highly reliable self-driving vehicles.

Finally, mMTC (or massive Machine Type Communications) supplies connectivity to an enormous number of IoT devices, allowing multiple devices to send and receive data from a single 5G base station. This feature is commonly used in smart cities, homes, factories, or even in smart agriculture.
