5G Technology

After China marked its entry to 5G technology, there have been efforts globally to shift to a 5G network. This faster network makes global communication and market easy. The 5G technology establishes a high speed, mobile, safe and widespread new generation information infrastructure. India plans to launch Indigenous 5G as part of PM’s Atmanirbhar under the Digital India project. India has banned Chinese apps and blocked its hardware supply chains to protect India’s business and security interests. Scientists and industries are working together to bring 5G technology quicker than getting intertwined in policy processes & bureaucratic rifts. The fast implementation of 5G technology can make India an excellent alternative to China. The private telecom companies in India have been urging the DoT to plan a clear strategy of spectrum allocation and 5G frequency bands to plan the services accordingly.

5G Technology

5G or fifth generation is the next-generation wireless cellular technology that provides faster and more reliable communication with ultra-low latency. It is the latest update in long-term evolution (LTE) mobile broadband networks. It is more capable than previous mobile services with more capacity, low cost, faster data delivery rate, in-depth coverage, and better utilisation of spectrum.

There are three bands in 5G, which are low, mid and high-frequency spectrum. The low band spectrum has excellent network coverage and high-speed internet and data exchange, but the maximum speed is limited to 100 Mbps. The mid-band spectrum offers higher speed than the low band but is limited in terms of coverage area and penetration of signals. Industries and specialised factory units mainly use this band for building captive networks that can be shaped into particular industry needs. The high-band spectrum has the highest speed but has minimal coverage and signal penetration strength.
