Mobile broadband news

The next generation of mobile broadband technologies will make download speeds of 10Gb widely available, it has been claimed.

Huawei - the Chinese dongle and Mi-Fi device manufacturer - believes 5G broadband will become a reality at some point between 2020 and 2030.

The firm is one of a number of public and private sector organisations currently involved in research and development work for 5G.

Dr Wen Tong, Head of Huawei’s Communications Tech Labs, said the next generation of mobile broadband technology will open the frontiers of a new end-user experience.

"For example, visual communication will become the mainstream, and people will use wireless devices to interact instantly with people remotely, as if they were meeting face-to-face," he stated.

"5G wireless will also wirelessly connect an enormous number of 'things' to the network. Therefore, in combination with cloud computing and big data technologies, we can essentially automate the entire society."

However, Dr Tong said a lot of innovations need to be created and many technology challenges overcome to create 5G solutions.
