5G: The Game Changer for India
5G, or fifth generation, is the most recent upgrade to long-term growth and mobile broadband networks.
Nothing is impossible in 2021, from education to service, everything is evolving. Like everything, the mobile network is also moving towards the next generation. According to a study conducted by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology and McKinsey & Co., India's digital economy, driven by the growing spread of smartphones, increased internet access, and the development of mobile broadband, has the potential to reach USD 1 trillion by 2025.
5G- The Game Changer for India
Telecom has made technological progress from the second generation to the fourth generation. No previous expansion has broadened the service dimension beyond conventional flows in this area. 5G, or fifth generation, is the most recent upgrade to long-term growth and mobile broadband networks. The fifth generation wireless technology gives us the fastest network. 3G, was a clear upgrade in 4G technology, but 5G enables a new network, which has been designed to connect almost all things, including machines, objects and equipment. This will help to completely redefine the network by setting truly global wireless standards for speed and bandwidth.
Undoubtedly the 5G network paves the way for the future. 5G is expected to add better network features as well as service dimensions to capable technologies such as robotics. This means providing high multi-Gbps peak data speed, ultra-low latency, and massive network capacity.
Its goal is to increase availability, more reliability, and more user experience. The appeal of 5G lies in the fact that the entire infrastructure will act as an integrated platform for innovative applications.
5G technology is important for consumers as well as businesses as we step into the fourth industrial revolution. The 5G network will enable large-scale technologies like IoT, AI with low latency to facilitate the use of various commercial industries such as automotive, media and entertainment, healthcare, manufacturing, retail and agriculture.
In addition, initiatives like smart cities from a social point of view have the potential to improve the lives of citizens through significant improvements in services like public safety, utilities, and transport in 5G. All industry stakeholders in India are actively involved in the effort to commercially launch 5G through research and development investment, technology tests and by using case studies. Telecom Regulatory Authority and DoT are working together on a spectrum plan for 5G focused on global standardization. To facilitate spectrum plans are aligned with global spectrum allocation and spectrum harmonisation for 5G.
The smartphone market is currently undergoing a significant transformation, which is expected to continue. The promise of more entertainment with high-speed data connections on the 4G network is now becoming a reality.
Countries that want to maintain their competitiveness in global wealth are implementing 5G technology. Since technology affects almost all aspects of life, countries need to be aware of technological developments to improve the lives of their people and continue to grow in the global economy.
Service operators are announcing 5G trials. The Indian telecom industry has understood the benefits of 5G and we can expect some limited 5G rollouts to start at the end of 2021 or early 2022. India will face challenges such as choosing the right partner for CSP and DSP, enabling the ecosystem, and making the business profitable. Given the long-term benefits of 5G to India, it should be seen as an important infrastructure and on this basis we can realize the Digital India vision.
