Cellular technology entails the foundational infrastructure that mobile phone networks are built on.Cellular technology encompasses having numerous small transmitters interconnected as opposed to one big one. The idea of cell phones was in place since the 1920s, but it was not until 1973 that Martin Cooper created the very first mobile phone. Cooper created such a prototype that prov ided thirty minutes talk time almost ten hours of charging. This period was nearly ten years before Motorola began publicly selling their phones and since then, massive evolution in telecommunication hardware has taken place. They are now small and have the capability of supporting things like multi media like text messaging, internet, photos and videos. Cell phones have remodeled our world in ways that we never could have expected. The evolution of cell phones has been alongside that of wireless standards abbreviated to "G".
Successive generations of wireless standards are responsible for steering the transformation of Mobile Wireless Communication networks. All successive generations of wireless standards have brought remarkable advancements in data carrying capability, and reductions in latency and more or the same is expected with 5G. Though official 5G standards have not been set yet, 5G is anticipated to be faster, with speeds that are at minimum, three times more than the existing 4G standards. To truly understand the evolution of cellular networks, it is important to evaluate the unrelenting growth of wireless standards from the initial generation (1G) to currently where we stand, on the edge of a worldwide 5G adoption and usage.
