5th generation mobile network: Apple starts experiments with 5G
The FCC (Federal Communications Commission) has released Apple to begin experiments with 5th generation mobile networks, the 5G, in a short range spectrum ranging from 28 GHz to 39 GHz. These frequencies have a lower reach given the nature of the compliance of the electromagnetic wave but are capable of carrying a much larger amount of data.
In this way, this spectrum is interesting for testing, in order to help develop new transfer technologies, but it is not economically viable for an operator to deploy large-scale networks.
US mobile operators, for example, already experiment with the 5G, but in much smaller bands, such as 600 MHz and 2.5 GHz. Chinese, South Korean and Japanese companies also already work on the development of 5G in several frequencies, but the international authority that manages the subject, the GSM Association, has yet to set a standard.
