5G is the latest generation of mobile cellular technol-ogy, which is designed to significantly increase Internet speed, coverage and reduce the data packet transfer time in wireless networks. 5G brings together all latest and most advanced developments of mankind in terms of communications and IT. This is the limit of existing tech-nologies of microelectronics and data radio transmission. The new generation of 5G mobile communication has a number of fundamental advantages compared to 4G: higher data transfer rate; low signal delay; the ability to connect more devices; high energy efficiency; multiply increased throughput; high user mobility. Another im-portant difference of 5G deserves attention – large-scale virtualization. The new technology goes beyond just hardware solutions. Many functions in it are implemented not at the level of physical infrastructure, but in a soft-ware way. This article covers the topic of applicability of GNSS and 5G mobile communications. The material of article will tell you why GNSS and 5G are interesting and how User Equipment developers can start shaping the 5G device market today.
