Rise of 5G Technology in India

The 5G adoption is expected to globally redefine a range of industries beyond mobile devices such as retail, manufacturing, transport, healthcare, and logistics. India currently has a strong 4G (and 3G before that) footprint which largely offers improvements in data transfer speed on smartphones; 5G will allow a universe of connected devices to communicate with each other.

The use cases for 5G are well documented in the public domain, such as improved mobile experience, improved customer services, and overall communication. 5G is enabling a new wave of innovation that will take technological developments a step ahead. 

The overall mobile broadband experience will change forever in terms of media downloads and uploads, transferring heavy files, AR/VR applications, and UltraHD video streaming on mobiles. It will also boost our adoption of IoT devices for personal or business purposes. Automotive, E-commerce, Manufacturing, Public services (such as smart city applications), and Banking are some of the sectors that will ultimately benefit from the wide adoption of 5G technology.

Jio has designed its own hardware for the 5G technology, which could be made in India once 5G trials are successful along with the Internet of Things (IoT) gear. “We can give the design, layouts and board support packages to third-party manufacturers to have our gear made.” Having developed end-to-end 5G technology, Jio would be able to bring a wide array of use cases like security and surveillance using drones, industrial IoT and digitisation in the agriculture sector. “Broadband and voice will be the baseline of our technology.”

The telco has already informed the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) and sought its approval to conduct 5G trials based on its own technology. It had recently given a separate presentation to the DoT to explain its technology and possible use cases.

Watch out for  “The TLV 5G Innovation week” is the biggest virtual Mobile Technology Expo that will be held this year by the Israel Export Institute and the Foreign Trade Administration, and is the most prominent event on the mobile technology agenda. The TLV 5G Innovation week will take place on Nov. 17-18 2020, will feature Israel’s leading companies presenting the latest technologies
