India plans to roll out 5G services for consumers by 2020 and to achieve that objective, the government had in September this year set up a high-level forum that will evaluate and approve roadmaps and action plans to bring in the latest technology. Networks at Bharti Airtel test is a small but significant step in its journey towards next generation 5G mobile networks, which could offer data speed up to 100 times faster than current 4G networks. “The promise of 5G is endless; it will be a game changer.  Continue to work with vertical industry players to develop wider ecosystem use cases beyond enhanced mobile broadband, moving quickly to begin collaboration towards 5G interwith its ecosystem of partners. The 5G front will open the doors for Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, and Virtual Reality.

5G in India will unlock value for consumers across sectors, 5G is a natural evolution and India is at the negotiation table at world stage when it comes to 5G. “The industry structure with four players is right size and with time there will be increase in average revenue per user (ARPU) and the sector is poised for good times ahead.  A new revenue engine for telcos, the telecom regulator called for more infrastructure sharing and network improvement and reiterated that India will be the 5G leader.


 5G mobile revolution designed in Israel : 5G is an umbrella of various technologies that covers many spheres. The first and most common is the Internet of Things (IoT) – connecting a great many devices to the Internet, such as refrigerators, lighting, garbage cans, and cameras. Israel is more interested in developing the ability to achieve very high bandwidth speeds with very low latency.” A capacity of about 50 times what there is now on 4G, with shorter latencies (response times, G.P.) than there are today.  Due to the high speed made possible by 5G, however, the user will not feel the difference at all; the will still feel that processing is taking place within his device. This provides opportunities for a great many new apps in augmented reality, for example, which require many capacities, and also in autonomous cars and other sectors.”

Israel has technology and innovation, India has the capital and market. The two areas, which emerge out of discussion related to telecom, were reducing roaming charges between India and Israel and exploring the possibilities of standard formulation, research and development, and manufacturing in the area of 4G and 5G.  Israeli companies excel in providing innovative technologies and enhance R&D services. Companies in India can benefit from the advanced Israel technology. Relevant companies, interested to learn more on potential collaboration are invited to contact the Economic and Trade Department at the Israeli Consulate General in Bengaluru.
