5G enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) is 5G wireless technology that defines a minimum level of data transmission speed.
5G eMBB improves bandwidth capabilities and decreases latency compared to 4G.
Enhanced multimedia is possible only with the 5G eMBB feature.
We are experiencing a transition in connectivity technologies; new-generation wireless network technologies are finding applications beyond mobile devices, computers, and smartphones. The fifth generation of wireless technology (5G) use cases focus on improved coverage, device connectivity, low latency, and high reliability. 5G eMBB use cases are in high demand, as 5G revolutionizes bandwidth capabilities, and 5G eMBB use cases are projected to expand.
Data rates have evolved over each wireless technology generation. 5G enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) is a 5G wireless technology that defines a minimum level of data transmission speed. 5G eMBB is the feature that pushes network throughput, thereby enhancing user experience. 5G eMBB improves bandwidth capabilities and decreases latency compared to 4G.
The target of 5G eMBB is to achieve a peak throughput of 10 Gbps or more. It also supports data transfer from moving devices; up to 1Gbps throughput can be obtained. All these throughput values are given for a network with around 10000X total traffic. Data-intensive applications benefit from the 5G eMBB feature.
The Role of 5G eMBB
With 5G eMBB, it is possible to achieve:
Connected device density, even in densely populated areas with good indoor connectivity.
Consistency in user experience with a wide network coverage.
Real-time communication and connectivity even when mobile broadband services are accessed from moving vehicles.
5G eMBB use cases allow users to explore a new level of mobile broadband speeds. The requirements for eMBB are:
High data rates exclusively within 5G standalone capacity.
Enhanced 4G LTE networks for higher data rates with low latency.
5G eMBB services are typically seen in various use cases involving high data traffic, massive device connectivity, etc.
5G eMBB Use Cases
Generally, the use cases of 5G eMBB are data intensive and demand high bandwidth. Let’s take a look at a few of these use cases in the table below.
