The amount of mobile data traffic on the planet has significantly expanded during the past several years. We have witnessed how quickly the world has transitioned into the digital age over the last two years during post covid era. According to different studies that are available, India has advanced past this stage of development. To the delight of those who are interested in technology, both the local business community and the general populace have embraced this transition. The act of a semi-urban or rural Indian making a digital payment for a small amount of money is no longer considered taboo. Remote patient care is also no longer uncommon, and video calling is quickly becoming the standard method of communication in all contexts, including business meetings and social gatherings. Banking, entertainment, e-commerce, education, etc. the list is never ending, is how the world is changing the way we live now. Automation, augmented reality and virtual reality are all part of our lives today. Yes, this is all digital universe, and this is the universe we live in; albeit there is much more for this universe to consume from the physical world today, and the transformation is on at a massive pace.
The launch of 5G services by the honorable Prime Minister of India, is yet another significant turning point in the country’s economic development and will improve both commercial and personal convenience. It will significantly advance Atma Nirbhar Bharat and revolutionize India’s digital sector, as well as disaster management, healthcare, education, logistics, and transit. With the launch of 5G and the anticipated advancements, India will purely make a dramatic and significant change in the lives of the general public, just as 4G did.
Human-centric data-driven use cases for access to multi-media content, services, and data will be facilitated by 5G. Stable throughput, latency, and availability parameters are required for application domains such as virtual reality, video monitoring, mobile cloud computing, 360-degree ultra-high-definition (UHD) video streaming, real-time gaming, etc. The multiplier effect on the economy will depend on the speed and caliber of 5G development.
There are several key factors to making Digital Bharat a true success.
