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.

Publisher's Note

There is an idea that most Latino immigrants who come here lack education, and thus are bound to perform jobs that require more physical abilities than intellectual ones.

The laborers usually receive a negative stigma, even though the United States society requires these types of jobs to function properly. It is important to us to remember there is dignity in any job. 

In our Líders section, we feature Mari Alejos-Puente, an entrepreneur who is succeeding in the cosmetics’ industry. She graduated from Tulane University and Xavier University and she told me how her mother and her grandmother  were part of the cleaning crews at these institutions, respectively, and how proud they were to see her obtain her undergrad and master degrees.

It is a beautiful thing when you know ladies like this mother and grandmother work hard to give a better life to their children. I wanted to mention this as a side note, because it is important to highlight their efforts, just as much as the effort of the highly skilled professionals we are featuring in our cover story.

In our cover we feature three Latin American physicians who are giving individuals a second chance in life with through their commitment and work at the Ochsner Transplant Institute.

Let his note be a reminder that Latinos, in every field, are providing their skills, talent, and sacrifices every day to make the United States a culturally and economically stronger society.
