Prime Minister inaugurated 5G services in India on marking the beginning of the use of the next generation network in the country.
The 5G services will be rolled out in a phased manner.
The 13 cities where 5G networks will be launched first include Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Chennai, Delhi, Gandhinagar, Gurugram, Hyderabad, Jamnagar, Kolkata, Lucknow, Mumbai and Pune.
5G technology will offer a wide range of benefits to the common people such as seamless coverage, high data rate, low latency, and highly reliable communications.
It will also help in real-time monitoring of disasters, precision agriculture, minimising the role of humans in dangerous industrial operations and delivery of critical services.
5G Benefits: A Connected World
The 5G wave brings a more connected world, accommodating technologies like IoT.
This not only integrates AI into our lives but also supports Virtual and Augmented Reality, revolutionizing the mobile experience. Imagine downloading 8K movies and graphics-intensive games in seconds.
The technology’s scope extends beyond personal devices, permeating sectors like industry, commerce, education, healthcare, agriculture, finance, and social services.
While 2G to 4G will persist, it may take a decade or more to phase them out.
Various Field Applications of 5G Network
5G’s applications are diverse. It’ll embed sensors for real-time data relay in manufacturing, consumer durables, and agriculture.
Transport infrastructure will become smarter with vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication, paving the way for driverless cars.
Low latency, crucial for mission-critical applications, is a hallmark of 5G.
Operating on millimeter waves, it boasts higher bandwidth, facilitating efficient IoT applications.
The healthcare industry, powered by 5G, embraces smart medical devices, the Internet of Medical Things, analytics, and high-definition medical imaging.
Way Forward for India: Embracing the 5G Revolution
