Fifth Generation Technology - 5G

5G technologies will change the way most high-bandwidth users access their phones. With 5G pushed over a VOIP-enabled device, people will experience a level of call volume and data transmission never experienced before.5G technology is offering the services     in     Product     Engineering, Documentation, supporting electronic transactions (e-Payments, e-transactions) etc. As the customer becomes more and more aware of the mobile phone technology, he or she will look for a decent package all together, including all the advanced features a cellular phone can have. Hence the search for new technology is always the main motive of the leading cell phone giants to out innovate their competitors. Recently apple has produced shivers all around the electronic world by launching its new handset, the I-phone. Features that are getting embedded in such a small piece of electronics are huge.


The present cell phones have it all. Today phones have everything ranging from the smallest size, largest phone memory, speed dialing, video player, audio player, and camera and so on. Recently with the development of Pico nets and Blue tooth technology data sharing has become a child's play. Earlier with the infrared feature you can share data within a line of sight that means the two devices has to be aligned properly to transfer data, but in case of blue tooth you can transfer data even when you have the cell phone in your pocket up to a range of 50 meters. The creation and entry of 5G technology into the mobile marketplace will launch a new revolution in the way international cellular plans are offered.

The global mobile phone is upon the cell phone market. Just around the corner, the newest 5G technologies will hit the mobile market with phones used in China being able to access and call locally phones in Germany. Truly innovative technology changing the way mobile phones will be used. With the emergence of cell phones, which are similar to a PDA, you can now have your whole office within the phone. Cell phones will give tough competitions to laptop manufacturers and normal computer designers. Even today there are phones with gigabytes of memory storage and the latest operating systems. Thus one can say that with the current trends, the industry has a real bright future if it can handle the best technologies and can produce affordable handsets for its customers. Thus you will get all your desires unleashed in the near future when these smart phones take over the market. 5G Network's router and switch technology delivers Last Yard Connectivity between the Internet access provider and building occupants. 5G's technology intelligently distributes Internet access to individual nodes within the building.


The first generation of mobile phones was analog systems that emerged in the early 1980s. The second generation of digital mobile phones appeared in 1990s along with the first digital mobile networks. During the second generation, the mobile telecommunications industry experienced exponential growth in terms of both subscribers and value-added services. Second generation networks allow limited data support in the range of 9.6 kbps to 19.2 kbps. Traditional phone networks are used mainly for voice transmission, and are essentially circuit-switched networks.

2.5G networks, such as General Packet Radio Service (GPRS), are an extension of 2G networks, in that they use circuit switching for voice and packet switching for data transmission resulting in its popularity since packet switching utilizes bandwidth much more efficiently. In this system, each user’s packets compete for available bandwidth, and users are billed only for the amount of data transmitted.

3G networks were proposed to eliminate many problems faced by 2G and 2.5G networks, especially the low speeds and incompatible technologies such as Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA)  and Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) in different countries. Expectations for 3G included increased bandwidth; 128 Kbps for mobile stations, and 2 Mbps for fixed applications. In theory, 3G should work over North American as well as European and Asian wireless air interfaces. In reality, the outlook for 3G is not very certain. Part of the problem is that network providers in Europe and North America currently maintain separate standards’ bodies (3GPP for Europe and Asia; 3GPP2 for North America). The standards’ bodies have not resolved the differences in air interface technologies.

There is also a concern that in many countries 3G will never be deployed due to its cost and poor performance. Although it is possible that some of the weaknesses at physical layer will still exist in 4G systems, an integration of services at the upper layer is expected.

The evolution of mobile networks is strongly influenced by business challenges and the direction mobile system industry takes. It also relates to the radio access spectrum and the control restrictions over it that varies from country to country. However, as major technical advances are being standardized it becomes more complex for industry alone to choose a suitable evolutionary path. Many mobile system standards for Wide Area Networks (WANs) already exists including the popular ones such as Universal Mobile Telecommunications Systems (UMTS), CDMA, and CDMA-2000 (1X/3X). In addition there are evolving standards for Personal Area Networks (PANs), such as Bluetooth wireless, and for WLANs, such as IEEE 802.11.

The current trend in mobile systems is to support the high bit rate data services at the downlink via High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA). It provides a smooth evolutionary path for UMTS networks to higher data rates in the same way as Enhanced Data rates for Global Evolution (EDGE) do in Global Systems for Mobile communication (GSM). HSPDA uses shared channels that allow different users to access the channel resources in packet domain. It provides an efficient means to share spectrum that provides support for high data rate packet transport on the downlink, which is well adapted to urban environment and indoor applications.

Initially, the peak data rates of 10 Mbps may be achieved using HSPDA. The next target is to reach 30 Mbps with the help of antenna array processing technologies followed by the enhancements in air interface design to allow even higher data rates.

Another recent development is a new framework for mobile networks that is expected to provide multimedia support for IP telecommunication services, called as IP Multimedia Subsystems (IMS). Real-time rich multimedia communication mixing telecommunication   and   data  services   could   happen   due   to   IMS   in   wireline   broadband networks. However, mobile carriers cannot offer their customers the freedom to mix multimedia components (text, pictures, audio, voice, video) within one call. Today a two party voice call cannot be extended to a multi-party audio and video conference. IMS overcomes such limitations and makes these scenarios possible.

The future of mobile systems is largely dependent upon the development and evolution of 4G systems, multimedia networking, and upto some extent, photonic networks. It is expected that initially the 4G mobile systems will be used independent from other technologies. With gradual growth of high speed data support to multimegabits per second, an integrations of services will happen. In addition, developments in photonic switching might allow mobile communication on a completely photonic network using Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) on photonic switches and routers. The evolutionary view of 4G systems to 5G include a support of wireless world wide web allowing a highly flexible and reconfigurable dynamic adhoc networks.


The basic architecture of wireless mobile system consists of a mobile phone connected to the wired world via a single hop wireless connection to a Base Station (BS), which is responsible for carrying the calls within its region called cell (Figure 1). Due to limited coverage provided by a BS, the mobile hosts change their connecting base stations as they move from one cell to another.

A hand-off (later referred to as “horizontal handoff” in this article) occurs when a mobile system changes its BS. The mobile station communicates via the BS using one of the wireless frequency sharing technologies such as FDMA, TDMA, CDMA etc. Each BS is connected to a Mobile Switching Center (MSC) through fixed links, and each MSC is connected to others via Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). The MSC is a local switching exchange that handles switching of mobile user from one BS to another. It also locates the current cell location of a mobile user via a Home Location Register (HLR) that stores current location of each mobile that belongs to the MSC. In addition, the MSC contains a Visitor Locations Register (VLR) with information of visiting mobiles from other cells. The MSC is responsible for determining the current location of a target mobile using HLR, VLR and by communicating with other MSCs. The source MSC initiates a call setup message to MSC covering target area for this purpose.

The first generation cellular implementation consisted of analog systems in 450-900 MHz frequency range using frequency shift keying for signaling and Frequency Division Multiple Access (FDMA) for spectrum sharing. The second generation implementations consist of TDMA/CDMA implementations with 900, 1800 MHz frequencies. These systems are called GSM for Europe and IS-136 for US. The respective 2.5G implementations are called GPRS and CDPD followed by 3G implementations.
Third generation mobile systems are intended to provide a global mobility with wide range of services including voice calls, paging, messaging, Internet and broadband data. IMT-2000 defines the standard applicable for North America. In Europe, the equivalent UMTS standardization is in progress. In 1998, a Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) was formed to unify and continue the technical specification work. Later, the Third Generation Partnership Project 2 (3GPP2) was formed for technical development of CDMA-2000 technology.

3G mobile offers access to broadband multimedia services, which is expected to become all IP based in future 4G systems. However, current 3G networks are not based on IP; rather they are an evolution from existing 2G networks. Work is going on to provide 3G support and Quality of Service (QoS) in IP and mobility protocols. The situation gets more complex when we consider the WLAN research and when we expect it to become mobile. It is expected that WLANs will be installed in trains, trucks, and buildings. In addition, it may just be formed on an ad-hoc basis (like ad-hoc networks) between random collections of devices that happen to come within radio range of one another (Figure 2).

In general, 4G architecture includes three basic areas of connectivity; PANs (such as Bluetooth), WANs (such as IEEE 802.11), and cellular connectivity. Under this umbrella, 4G will provide a wide range of mobile devices that support global roaming. Each device will be able to interact with Internet-based information that will be modified on the fly for the network being used by the device at that moment (Figure 3). In 5G mobile IP, each cell phone is expected to have a permanent "home" IP address, along with a "care-of" address that represents its actual location. When a computer somewhere on the Internet needs to communicate with the cell phone, it first sends a packet to the phone's home address.

A directory server on the home network forwards this to the care-of address via a tunnel, as in regular mobile IP. However, the directory server also sends a message to the computer informing it of the correct care-of address, so future packets can be sent directly. This should enable TCP sessions and HTTP downloads to be maintained as users move between different types of networks. Because of the many addresses and the multiple layers of subnetting, IPv6 is needed for this type of mobility.

For instance, 128 bits (4 times more than current 32 bit IPv4 address) may be divided into four parts (I thru IV) for supporting different functions. The first 32-bit part (I) may be defined as the home address of a device while the second part (II) may be declared as the care-of address allowing communication between cell phones and personal computers. So once the communication path between cell and PC is established, care-of address will be used instead of home address thus using the second part of IPv6 address.
The third part (III) of IPv6 address may be used for tunneling to establish a connection between wire line and wireless network. In this case an agent (a directory server) will use the mobile IP address to establish a channel to cell phones. The fourth and last part (IV) of IPv6 address may be used for local address for VPN sharing. Figure 4 illustrates the concept.

The goal of 4G and 5G is to replace the current proliferation of core mobile networks with a single worldwide core network standard, based on IPv6 for control, video, packet data, and voice. This will provide uniform video, voice, and data services to the mobile host, based entirely on IPv6.
 The objective is to offer seamless multimedia services to users accessing an all IP-based infrastructure through heterogeneous access technologies. IPv6 is assumed to act as an adhesive for providing global connectivity and mobility among networks.
Most of the wireless companies are looking forward to IPv6, because they will be able to introduce new services. The Japanese government is requiring all of Japan's ISPs to support IPv6 with its first 4G launch. Although the US upgrade to IPv6 is less advanced, WLAN’s advancement may provide a shortcut to 4G.


CDMA development group (CDG) has issued convergence architecture for 4G, which combined pico cell, micro cell, macro cell and global area shown in Figure5. This architecture clearly shows that in pico-cell area, there are four wireless network covered, in micro cell area, there are three wireless network covered, in macro cell area, there are two wireless network covered at least. The problem is for any users at a certain place and time, it is one network supply wireless services for them, the others keep wireless network resources waste. 5G is real wireless world, it is completed wireless communication. We design mix-bandwidth data path for 5G so that all wireless network resource can be used efficiently.

Mix-Bandwidth Data Path Model Design
In order to design mix-bandwidth data path, we propose a new data model as shown in Figure6. This model based on any two networks overlay area. When a mobile node comes into the overlay area, both of the two networks can supply services for the mobile node simultaneously.
Data request can be sent from any one network, and reply can be from any other network.
In this model, the MN request can go through the first connection (MN → BS → PDSN → CN) and the resulting reply can come from the second connection (CN → PDSN → AP → MN). Thus, two networks supply services for the mobile node simultaneously. Following this model, we propose mix-bandwidth data path shown in Figure3, which contains four components. They are bandwidth management, bandwidth selection, packet receiver and bandwidth monitor.

Mobile computing is an aspect that plays seminal role in the implementation of 4G Mobile Communication Systems since it primarily centers upon the requirement of providing access to various communications and services every where, any time and by any available means. Presently, the technical solutions for achieving mobile computing are hard to implement since they require the creation of communication infrastructures and the modification of operating systems, application programs and computer networks on account of limitations on the capability of a moving resource in contrast to a fixed one.
In the purview of Grid and Mobile Computing, Mobile Grid is a heir of Grid, that addresses mobility issues, with the added elements of supporting mobile users and resources in a seamless, transparent, secure and efficient way. It has the facility to organize underlying ad-hoc networks and offer a self-configuring Grid system of mobile resources (hosts and users) connected by wireless links and forming random and changeable topologies.

The mobile Grid needs to be upgraded from general Grid concept to make full use of all the capabilities that will be available; these functionalities will involve end-to-end solutions with emphasis on Quality of Service (QoS) and security, as well as interoperability issues between the diverse technologies involved. Further, enhanced security policies and approaches to address large scale and heterogeneous environments will be needed. Additionally, the volatile, mobile and poor networked environments have to be addressed with adaptable QoS aspects which have to be contextualized with respect to users and their profiles.

Wireless Grids
Grid computing lets devices connected to the Internet, overlay peer-to-peer networks, and the nascent wired computational grid dynamically share network connected resources in 4G kind of scenario. The wireless grid extends this sharing potential to mobile, nomadic, or fixed-location devices temporarily connected via ad hoc wireless networks. As Fig. 7 shows, users and devices can come and go in a dynamic wireless grid, interacting with a changing landscape of information resources. Following Metcalfe’s law, grid-based resources become more valuable as the number of devices and users increases. The wireless grid makes it easier to extend grid computing to large numbers of devices that would otherwise be unable to participate and share resources. While grid computing attracts much research, resource sharing across small, ad hoc, mobile, and nomadic grids draws much less.

Wireless grids, a new type of resource-sharing network, connect sensors, mobile phones, and other edge devices with each other and with wired grids. Ad hoc distributed resource sharing allows these devices to offer new resources and locations of use for grid computing. In some ways, wireless grids resemble networks already found in connection with agricultural, military, transportation, air-quality, environmental, health, emergency, and security systems.

A range of institutions, from the largest governments to very small enterprises, will own and at least partially control wireless grids. To make things still more complex for researchers and business strategists, users and producers could sometimes be one and the same. Devices on the wireless grid will be not only mobile but nomadic - shifting across institutional boundaries. Just as real-world nomads cross institutional boundaries and frequently move from one location to another, so do wireless devices.

The following classification offers one way to classify wireless grid applications.
 • Class 1: Applications aggregating information from the range of input/output interfaces found in nomadic devices.
•    Class 2: Applications leveraging the locations and contexts in which the devices exist.
•    Class 3: Applications leveraging the mesh network capabilities of groups of nomadic devices.

The three classes of wireless grid applications conceptualized here are not mutually exclusive. Understanding more about the shareable resources, the places of use, and ownership and control patterns within which wireless grids will operate might assist us in visualizing these future patterns of wireless grid use.
The Grid, is a promising emerging technology that enables the simple “connect and share” approach analogously to the internet search engines that apply the “connect and acquire information” concept. Thus, mobile/wireless grids is an ideal solution for large scale applications which are the pith of 4G mobile communication systems, besides, this grid-based-approach will potentially increase the performance of the involved applications and utilization rate of resources by employing efficient mechanisms for resource management in the majority of its resources, that is, by allowing the seamless integration of resources, data, services and ontologies. Figure 2 places wireless grids in context, illustrating how they span the technical approaches and issues of Web services, grid computing, P2P systems, mobile commerce, ad hoc networking, and spectrum management. How sensor and mesh networks will ultimately interact with software radio and other technologies to solve wireless grid problems requires a great deal of further research, but Figure 4 at least captures many of the main facets of a wireless grid.

A new revolution of 5G technology is about to begin because 5G technology going to give tough completion to normal computer and laptops whose marketplace value will be effected.
There are lots of improvements from 1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G to 5G in the world of telecommunications. The new coming 5G technology is available in the market in affordable rates, high peak future and much reliability than its preceding technologies.

Features that are getting embedded in such a small piece of electronics are huge. Today you will hardly witness a cell phone without an mp3 player with huge storage memory and a camera. You can use the cell phone as a Walkman. Even every latest set being launched by the cell phone companies have a mega pixel camera in it, which produces extraordinary digital image just like a specialized camera for photography. Here are some an examples about mobile technology in our future, A man’s phone detects that it hasn’t moved for more than 2 hours during the man’s regular waking hours. It issues an audible alarm, but no response! So it emits a signal that triggers a RFID chip implanted inside his body. The RFID chip responds by verifying the identity of the man and also a brief burst of telemetry that indicates that he is experiencing heart beat irregularities and his blood pressure is dangerously low. The phone quickly sends an automated text message to a medical alarm system, including not only the identity and the health data of the owner but also the fact that the man is not in his own apartment but in a reading room of a library.

This is what I think of a “Fifth Generation” world, also sometimes referred as the 5G world. The next logical step is to bring high­speed broadband to police cars and other emergency vehicles," stated Brian Corty, Chief Technology Officer for 5G Wireless Communications. "We believe our solution is capable of bringing high­speed connectivity to these vehicles at a relatively low cost." "We're really taking 802.11b technology to new heights and new applications," stated Jerry Dix, President and CEO of 5G Wireless. "We're in the field testing, mapping and demonstrating speeds upward of 1 Mbps, while traveling at 35 MPH and we are in the process of proving that the vehicle units would remain connected as they move between multiple 5G Access Points for seamless roaming capabilities."

The Mobile Wi-Fi capability is an extension of 5G's recently announced WiFi Hot Zone. Whereas local hot spot "only reach an area of 300 ft. from an access point, 5G's enhanced package provides coverage over a mile away.        Augmented by strategically placed "repeaters," it is possible to provide the entire fleet of police cars and emergency vehicles total coverage within the 7-square-mile city limits. The 5G technology has been able to penetrate both manmade and natural obstacles     while     delivering     speeds consistent with line-of-sight locations. This enables the company to provide innovative wireless solutions in response to increased national security and emergency       management concerns.

Having a wireless infrastructure is critical to our Public Safety operations, We now have a reliable means of providing critical information as well as normal municipal functions in the event of an emergency. And it's gratifying to know we're doing it at an affordable level at a time when we are under intense pressure to reduce costs due to the State's  budget crisis."
5G Wireless Communications, Inc located in Marina del Rey, designs, builds, operates, markets and services wireless broadband systems. Utilizing proprietary IEEE 802.11b enhancements for "Last Mile" point-to-point and point-to-multi-point networks, 5G customers receive dependable, high-speed Internet access without the usual installation delays and at significantly lower costs than most major competitors.
