A New Push In Big Data – Say Hello To 5G

A New Push In Big Data
Say Hello To 5G

Since the adoption of 4G broadband network technology about ten years ago, the world has witnessed the evolution and application of the 4th gen cellular network such as mobile web access, VoIP, internet TV, network gaming services, as well as data mining and advanced data analytics on the IT realm. Fast forward to 2019, the world is now welcoming 5G – the latest generation of cellular mobile network, promising even faster data transmission. But the main question is; how will it impact the generation of Big Data we live in today?

But the main question is; how will it impact the generation of Big Data we live in today?

How Big is BIG?

To answer this, we need have an idea of what Big Data is and what it offers. You can explore more about Big Data from our recent article, but the gist is this: Big Data is large sets of data brought together and analyzed in finding pattern and draw insights for decision making. Big Data is fed by Internet of Things (IoT) and from mobile phones, and data generation is expanding at an overwhelming pace.

 

Just think of YouTube where 400 hours of new videos were uploaded every minute, or 2.5 million posts were generated on Instagram. IBM report predict that by 2020, the amount of data generated would reach 40 trillion gigabytes. This is Big Data!

Blistering Fast 5G

So, what 5G has anything to do with Big Data? Keep in mind that 5G offers much much more transmission bandwidth. In comparison, 4G network has transfer rate of 50 – 100 Mbps while 5G network tentatively has a speed of over 10 Gbps. Just to get the idea, movie file size of 1.2GB could be downloaded in less than a second! Additionally, 5G also offers ultra-low latency with less than a millisecond delay, particularly important for example in industrial automation, virtual reality and other haptic technologies.


Theoretically, this huge data transfer in short amount of time will enhance communication, caching and computing abilities. In Big Data processing, 5G wireless network can act like a bridge between data sources and data centers, transmitting encrypted data at blazing speeds to different centers for analysis. It can also support immense connectivity across IoT devices (sensors, controllers etc.) backed by advanced machine learning architectures, and translate Big Data into real-time insights and precise actions.

5G Use-Cases – How It Contributes to Real World?

The integration of 5G network into Big Data will revolutionize various scope of things from healthcare, automotive and industrial to the development works of smart cities. For example, petabytes of data in automotive can be used to produce driverless cars, or massive medical data can provide advanced diagnostics and predictive alerts to sick patients.


The adoption of 5G could tremendously elevate each of World of Sharing (WOS) projects. Take Smart Drive for instance; 5G’s ultra-low latency plays a critical role in a sudden jam-brake scenario where the safety feature of on-board diagnostics (OBD) could immediately send out a warning in real-time to the following vehicles to prevent a chain of collisions. This can be accomplished if the message for lead car can reach other cars in time for them to take evasive actions.


For Smart Community, 5G will make it possible for people behind its development to get up-to-the-minute data and take instantaneous actions to keep things operating smoothly for the public. This include matters such as working spaces, traffic management, banking, insurance etc.

Living In The Digital Age

5G wireless network is anything but limited or simple. The advent of 5G not only opens new chapter in mobile communication, but also pushes the potentials of Big Data, providing faster and efficient data analytics. Gartner Hype Cycle report indicates that from 2018 to 2022 organizations will often utilize 5G to support IoT communications, drawing a thought that 5G will be key technology for artificial intelligence. We at WOS couldn’t agree more!
