Ericsson: VR / AR technology to promote, 2023 will have 1 billion people use 5G network
December 5 News Ericsson predicts that in 2023, 20% of the world's people will be able to use ultra-fast next generation 5G mobile phone connection.
20% does not sound like much, but about 1 billion people have it. In addition, because the United States has already started the 5G test, it will be at the forefront of the industry. However, after six years, 4G LTE is still the most common mobile phone connection.
Ericsson said that mobile video will become a major area of application of 5G connectivity to promote the development of 5G. However, it is interesting that VR and AR technologies will enable networks and infrastructure operators like Ericsson and Nokia to quickly set up and operate 5G connections. Ericsson predicts that the role of VR and AR will no longer be limited to games and entertainment, but to a wider range of uses to reach more people. Fast, reliable, low-latency data connections are important for VR and AR.
In the meantime, Ericsson said the first 5G signal is expected to be realized by 2019 and will start to be widely spread by 2020. The United States, China, South Korea and Japan will be the first countries to offer commercial 5G networks. However, in September of this year, Qualcomm once said that the first 5G smartphone will be launched in 2019, one year earlier than Ericsson expected.
So, after 2020, which places can provide a powerful 5G connection? Ericsson said that "densely populated urban areas", that is, the metropolis, the earliest to enjoy the 5G speed. Currently, U.S. telecom carrier Verizon has begun testing the 5G and plans to test its first 5G connection in 11 U.S. cities next year. T-Mobile, a multinational mobile phone operator, also said the company will launch a nationwide 5G network by 2020.
As for the market share of 5G connectivity and 4G LTE, Ericsson said 4G LTE will be used by 85% of the world's population by 2023, with a population of about 5.5 billion. This clear contrast shows that 4G LTE is still the dominant connection even in big cities.
