The world’s economy is a pivotal moment as artificial intelligence is the future generation. The catalyst for growth is wireless connectivity by 5G—a new standard for wireless telecommunications. 5G is not simply an 4G it merely a faster wireless capability. 5G makes the connection and interaction of billions of devices. Indeed, 5G connectivity leads consumers and industries, to new frontiers of productivity and innovation.

In this paper, we examine how the 5G technology deployment challenges are overcome to the implementation of the network .We consider a range of actions and problems that may help overcome deployment challenges and enable rapid and extensive 5G deployment, including a light-touch policy framework that urges carriers and the ecosystem partners to negotiate without government intervention and involve carriers to operate at grander scale and economic efficiency.5G technology marks the beginning of a new era in connectivity that will impact almost daily life.

4G LTE is still making a sufficient impact in the network lifecycle: Historically, cellular technologies have adhered to associate degree approximate 20-year cycle from launch to peak penetration, with around 10 years between the launch of every new technology (see Figure 2). The first business 4G LTE networks went board 2009 and supported historical precedent we might not expect the technology to achieve a peak level of connections until around 2030.

Comparing 4G and 5G

5G mobile communication technology with performance enhancements of many orders of magnitude over today’s networks. 5G won’t replace 4G, its large diversity of tasks that 4G cannot perform. The figure below shows the comparing the 5G and 4G will continue in parallel with 5G, support more routine tasks. 5G can service nevertheless to be enforced, in a very world economy square measure driven by refined communications networks.[2]
