Welcome to the JAAGNet Community for Telco/5G.

This community is designed for individuals interested in the rapidly evolving telecommunications industry and/or 5G Network infrastructure..

Telecommunications (telco, telecom) is the exchange of information over significant distances by electronic means and refers to all types of voice, data and video transmission. It encompasses a wide range of information transmitting technologies such as telephones (wired and wireless), microwave communications, fiber optics, satellites, radio and television broadcasting, the internet and telegraphs.

Fifth-generation wireless (5G) networks are digital cellular networks engineered to greatly increase the speed and responsiveness of wireless networks. 5G will enable a sharp increase in the amount of data transmitted over wireless systems due to more available bandwidth and advanced antenna technology. 5G is used in diverse applications, examples are, IoT Communications, video, controls and automation, fixed wireless access, high performance edge analytics, location tracking and more.
