It seems all we hear about these days is 5G. However, the changeover to 5G networks will not happen overnight. It is a long, involved process that includes operators replacing pretty much their entire infrastructure. The 5G that is being marketed to consumers today is actually still running for the most part on the 4G network and improves on traditional 4G performance by implementing certain 5G protocols and principles. Thus, many people refer to it as 4G Evolved or 4G Plus.
We know that operators are investing most of their time and effort into planning and beginning to deploy their 5G networks, but that does not mean they are abandoning their 4G networks any time soon. In fact, according to ABI Research, “4G will carry about 75% of the total mobile traffic in 2021.”
