5 G Technology

5G technology

The 5G technology is a new cellular network which promises to bring high speed with wider coverage. Now, 4G networks are common all over the world , but things are getting changed. And 4G is not able to manage huge amounts of data over the network. To resolve such problems, 5G technology comes with 10 times faster speed than the 4G networks, which allows to manage huge amounts of data over the network.

5 G is the fifth-generation technology which is standard for the cellular networks.

With the 5G network connections, the devices will receive numerous amounts of new data which helps your business increments, customers’ needs and builds a strong bond between users and business providers.

The fifth-generation 5G cellular networks are much smarter than the previous networks like 4G,3G, 2G, etc.

Key features where 5G is more demanding than 4G

Low Latency is the key feature which makes 5G more smarter than 4G networks. Latency is the time required for the set of data to pass from sender to receiver. Low latency means that you’d be able to use your mobile connection as a replacement of your Wi-Fi. 4G network has high rate latency which may take more time for data transferring, downloading and buffering while showing online videos.

5G is able to fix the bandwidth issues. There are many different devices which are connected to  3G and 4G networks, and they do not have the infrastructure to support emerging technologies.  But 5G has the capabilities to handle both the current devices and emerging technologies.


APM stands for Application Performance Management and EMM stands for Enterprise Mobile Management. APM and EMM are the two mostly used mobile technologies.

APM is the mobile metrics, which helps to boost the mobile app performances.  In 2016, APM got integrated into Google. It was introduced to resolve the slow down performance issues of the mobile apps. Because of this feature APM has become the best tool for quality assurance testing  of apps with test procedures.

Whereas, EMM or Enterprise Mobile Management is a platform which is designed to secure the organization data on employee devices. The main objective behind the use of EMM is to bring their own device policy  (BYOD), whereby  organization allows their employees to use their personal devices to the workplaces. EMM manages and reduces the security risk and all the compliance issues of the organization.

Enterprise Mobile Management helps organizations to enable safety mobile devices that are used by employees, which moreover helps in the mobile computing to organize the organization procedures.

There are some Components incorporate by EMM-
