5G Network Performance & KPI

Some telecom industries are very excited to know about 5G key performance indicators so that they can charge for the specific services. It might happen that if an end-user cannot access the provided service, they feel unsatisfied and plan to change the network subscription provider. 

This is why good accessibility of the service and the particular network stream is crucial. So far, people have enjoyed 2G, 3G, and 4G Network Speed. 3G network download speeds 384kbps & 4G download speed 100Mbps.        

The standard 4G has real-world speeds, nearly around 12-14Mbps. This download speed was mentioned by the telecom operators. Now, the 5G network is having download speeds 1-10Gbps. It is estimated that 5G technology can accomplish download speeds of 30-50 times faster than 4G. That would enable people to download a full HD movie in just 15-20 seconds which is otherwise 5-7 minutes on 4G network.

These days, more than 50-70% of the telecommunication network works on wireless technology across the globe. Mobile wireless transmission dominates the mobile network and plays a vital role in accessing the network and aggregating the network.

You should know all about the 5G network and its speed. 5G network will change the lives of human beings in the next 5 years and it will make most of the tasks easier. You should be aware of the key performance indicators of 5G to understand 5G network architecture division that operates on high frequencies of around millimetre waves.

What KPIs are important in 5G QoE? 

  • For full AR and VR immersion, the 5G-enabled ultra-low latency down to 1 ms is critical.
  • Frame Per Second (FPS) for 4K-5K HD videos.
  • For cloud gaming, internet access with guaranteed throughput and low latency is required.
  • Download peak data rate. 
  • Uplink peak data rate.   
  • Target downlink “user experienced data rate”.  
  • Target uplink “user experienced data rate”.
  • Downlink peak spectral efficiency in bps/Hz.
  • Uplink peak spectral efficiency in bps/Hz.

Today, the whole world is growing rapidly towards the 5G network and 5G mobile communication. 5G mobile communication is getting popular and available worldwide around 2020. The mobile industries and telecoms have a clear perspective to know about the major pitfalls, challenges to overcome, and key technology components. 

At the same time, focus on user experience is highly needed! This can be achieved when people will give emphasize end-to-end latency and user experience data rate. For example, in terms of discrete automation – motion control, end-to-end latency should be 1 ms and user experience data rate should be 1 Mbps to 10 Mbps. For process automation – remote control, end-to-end latency should be 50 ms and user experience data rate should be 1 Mbps to 100 Mbps.

As the user experience of any mobile app utilizes in different forms. One form is text, voice, and data service utilization. The second form is network utilization by subscribers. 

It is quite clear that 5G network service shows progress and development of mobile technologies that could attain high-level goals. However, to offer the desired 5G network services is not seem to be that much easy and there will be innumerable challenges and growing opportunities emerging for the engineering community.
