5G mobile networks
We can’t mention future phones without mentioning future mobile networks. 5G is the fifth generation of mobile networks. It follows previous mobile generations 2G, 3G and 4G. Compared to today’s networks, which primarily use 4G and 3G technology, 5G is set to be far faster and more reliable, with greater capacity and lower response times.
To enable these high speeds, graphene shows unique potential to exceed bandwidth demands of future telecommunications. Graphene enables ultra-wide bandwidth communications coupled with low power consumption to radically change the way data is transmitted across the optical communications systems.
While we reminisce about the days of predictive text and old-school mobile devices, development in the mobile arena is far from stagnant. Mobile devices — or maybe even brain devices — are set to continue to change.
