Israeli technology has a reputation of always being on the edge of innovation. So, it is hardly surprising that local startups are also leading the charge when it comes to 5G technology.

The dramatic upgrade in telecommunication capabilities provided by 5G, the fifth generation technology standard for cellular networks, will unleash a wide range of solutions that in many aspects will change life as we know it. In fact, it is set to bring to life what were once only science fiction fantasies, like autonomous vehicles, talking robots, and virtual reality.

Imagine an Israeli surgeon based in Tel Aviv operating on a patient in Mumbai remotely. This is just one of the promises of 5G telecom networks, which will be characterised by rapid connectivity and near-zero latency. The 5G revolution can open new pathways beyond health-technology and faster smartphones to self-driving cars, the internet of things and virtual reality.

India and Israel have a real opportunity for cooperation to avoid this. Strong application-based technology and infrastructure, supported by government policy, will likely ease the capital investment concerns for telecom operators.

A multifaceted and clearly defined 5G partnership between India and Israel could lead the way forward.

As a leader in mobile telecommunications, Israel is back in Barcelona for Mobile World Congress 2022 presenting a full spectrum of advanced solutions tailored for Telecom Service Providers, Equipment Vendors, Smart device manufacturers, corporates in the area of Automotive, Smart Home, Smart city, Finance and enterprises and users.

The Israel Pavilion at Mobile World Congress 2022 will provide a centrally located, high profile venue for 19 Israeli leading high technology companies, presenting the latest solutions for the Core Infrastructure Network, 5G, AR/VR, IoT and other mobile services.

The pavilion is organized by The Israel Export Institute in cooperation with the Foreign Trade Administration of the Israel Ministry of Economy.
