It is envisioned that cellular networks takes at least ten  years to get from one generation to another. 5G is not an exception to that, as for global  standardization , the whole cellular ecosystem needs to be  agreed on all technological aspects  which include antenna , modulation, security , mobility, authentication and so on. Technological evolutions guided us that probably  cellular technology comes out to be the right answer for 5G , IoT and tactile internet to take off .While working with other technologies their is a struggle for coverage, reliability, scalability and liability .By using cellular it is possible to  design a telecommunication system which can transmit at very  high power range and consumes very less energy. By 2020 ,5th generation cellular networks aims to provide data rates of more than 10Gbps ,opens up the paths for massive connected devices (Internet of things) communicating critical services (Tactile Internet) through haptic sensors.
