The year 2019 brings with it lots of new technology, and perhaps the most exciting development is advent of 5G networks.

Everything that we have known until now is about to change because 5G provides us with blazing speeds on our mobile devices, which will not only enable us to do a variety of things in real time but will also dramatically decrease content buffering and network lag.

So, what does “5G” exactly mean? Every “G” represents a different aspect of connectivity:

1G voice

2G Text messages

3G Internet

4G LTE -Faster internet

5G will give unprecedented speeds of 100 gbps+

This speed is so fast that it will allow us to use virtual reality in real time, which means someone could be controlling a device from across the globe. This could be used during a medical procedure, to drive a car remotely, or to fly airplanes.

The downside of 5G is that its frequency (millimeter wave) is much shorter, so more transmitter antennas would need to be deployed throughout cities. Deployment of 5G has been in the works for some time now and it has started in select cities, including, since last December, Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, Waco, and San Antonio in Texas, Charlotte and Raleigh in North Carolina, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Jacksonville, Florida, Louisville, Kentucky, New Orleans, Louisiana, and Indianapolis, Indiana.

The infrastructure of 5G is extremely costly as it is brand-new technology and it requires new transmitters and antennas; existing legacy transmitters cannot be upgraded. National availability of 5G is expected by March 2020.

Network abilities attained with 5G connectivity would also allow new technology to emerge and will provide a better internet experience for users.

Ready for the outdoors!

Although we do not have very well defined seasons, the weather changes enough to create different vibes in and around the city.

The moderate Spring weather accompanied with sunny clear skies is inviting to get back to the outdoors and be more active. The backyard also gets more use in the form of the very Louisiana tradition of the crawfish boil, which we learn more about in our food section.

Short day-trips are perfect during Spring and the Northshore offers some amazing destinations for nature and food lovers. Just sitting down on the bank of the Tchefuncte River, looking at the boats pass by can be a relaxing change of pace and scenery.

In this edition, we visit the Northshore to explore some of the Latin restaurants in the area. We will be coming back to enjoy the different places and activities that the Northshore has to offer. St. Tammany hosts a vineyard, a safari, strawberry and blueberry patches, breweries, swamp tours, museums, kayaking, and tubing, among so many other interesting things. The Northshore is the perfect destination when you need a little getaway.

But for now, we prepare to get outdoors in New Orleans to enjoy the great music during French Quarter Fest and to see the national and international superstars coming to Jazzfest. See you out there!
