The Digital India drive has given enough boost to the telecom sector in India. The prices for various prepaid-postpaid plans from telecom companies have come down in the recent past. Along with the price drop, they have come up with a lot and new services with fast internet data. The 4G and the 4G LTE evolution is still getting its momentum going for it, however, the Airtel and Huawei have joined hands to bring 5G services to India. In fact, they have even started testing the 5G services. Telecom giant Airtel and OEM Huawei conducted the country’s first 5G network trial. The trial took place at Manesar in Gurugram where Airtel’s Network Experience Centre is situated.
The setup for the trial was operated by 3.5GHz network band paired with 50GE network slicing router and 5G Core. What is really interesting is the fact that as much as 3gbps speed was achieved in the trial run. As per the claims made by the company, this is the highest you can achieve for the 3.5GHz band. The trial was done within a 100MHz bandwidth. The network latency was 1-millisecond end-to-end.
Meanwhile, Samsung has said that they are going to team up with Qualcomm to make the revolutionary 7-nanometre chips for 5G network services. The two companies are set to continue with their cooperation in the Extreme Ultra Violet (EUV) lithography process technology as well. Samsung said that they will work with Qualcomm Snapdragon to make 5G mobile chipsets on Samsung’s 7-nanometre Low Power Plus (LPP) EUV process technology.
It was back in December 2017, when the first set of 5G New Radio was tested. What comes with the 5G technology will make the future look so good. With 5G speeds, you will be able to view premium quality videos on almost every mode. You will be able to see 360-degree videos smoothly, 4K, ultra-HD without any buffer and you can reap benefits from virtual reality and augmented reality as well.
