Fantastic Gs and Where to Find Them

General description

Yeah good grades are cool and all, but have you ever had a good 3G signal?

3G, 4G, 5G – What are they? Simple as it is, the “G” stands for Generation, as in the next generation of wireless technologies. Each generation is faster, more secure and more reliable. Thanks to it, nowadays when you want to download a new game, movie or stream a TV show in HD, you can do it without buffering and lags that make the experience not worth the wait.

- Have you ever wondered what lies behind the story of the 3G and 4G technologies? - Why is it that because of them we are able to connect with the rest of the world in less than 5 seconds? - Are you just curious about all the possibilities that 5G will offer in just few years? (That’s right, faster data speed and fully-autonomous cars are just few of them)

Are you already trying to answer at least one of these questions?

Hop along on the journey to the birth and evolution of the wireless technologies and learn more about:

  • The past, present and future of the mobile industry evolution;
  • How 3G and 4G are alike and how they differ;
  • The current state of 5G;
  • The potential security requirements and mechanisms for 5G;
  • and a lot more. c:
