India is ready for the growth with 5G technology, where a connected world with limitless digital solutions will soon be the new norm. The 5G technology solutions showcase a whole new world of limitless possibilities across various domains, promising a new era of technology advancement in India. With the progressive roll out of 5G network and services over the next few years it can be ensured that various 5G solutions will bring a better tomorrow that will transform customer experience, enhance business performance, and positively impact people, driving digital economy growth in the country.
5G is not just a faster generation of mobile connectivity but also offers much more than just speed. It has more bandwidth, lower latency, and more processing power is designed to connect to IoT devices and has network slicing allowing for varied use case scenarios, which include:
With 5G, the advent of industry 4.0 in the near future can be seen. 5G will have a big role to play in this area as it brings with it features like ultra-low latency. We have MMTC which provides the ability to slice the networks. These 5G features will actually contribute to automating manufacturing in a manner which was not possible otherwise. In the next few years, 5G is likely to transform manufacturing with more solutions for automated manufacturing, including IoT and industrial IoT. This would be one of the main growth drivers of technology adoption bringing about a lot of efficiency and productivity improvements. With the new 5G network, current paradigm of technology will be encouraged to improve further, with better connectivity, faster throughput, greater bandwidth and lower latency. This would, in turn, avail a seamless experience for customers to take advantages of the available technology, transforming connected mobility for the better.
Sharing data in real-time on the high-speed 5G networks and leveraging various IoT applications for road and traffic conditions could further lead to the creation of smart transportation system that would help one and all. The industry players have used the 5G to bring the expertise of the best engineers and built state-of-the-art tools across several cities and use cases to ensure that your 5G experience is incomparable.
5G will deliver dramatically higher speeds compared to a 4G network. It could be anywhere between 20 to 30 times the speed we get today. With 5G, search and rescue paramedics access the latest healthcare technologies, like remote diagnostics and haptic devices, connecting with city-based doctors to deliver world-class care, anytime, anywhere.
Below mentioned are some learning from some top business leaders from whom we got an opportunity to listen and interact:
“The operators endeavor to be kinder to the environment. All of us are now struggling with extreme heat and unpredictable rains caused by climate change. This problem is real now. So, it is essential to address the issue and lower our carbon footprint in the next few decades. The players are choosing the most energy and carbon efficient technique in India.”- Gopal Vittal, MD & CEO, Bharti Airtel
