5G in India: How next-generation technology will change your life

Ushering in a new era in technology, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today launched 5G telecommunications services in India. This technology aims to provide seamless coverage, high data rates, low latency, and highly reliable communication systems. 5G services are also expected to play a major role from 2024 to achieving his economic goal of making India his $5 trillion economy by 2025. According to experts, 5G will bring a cumulative economic impact of $1 trillion by 2035 and an additional GDP of $150 billion for the country over the next 40 years from 2025. There is a possibility.

At the launch event, PM Modi also spent time understanding the unique development of end-to-end 5G technology and the various use cases for the service.

10 ways 5G will change your life

-For consumers, 5G promises faster data speeds than 4G. At peak times, 5G internet speeds could reach 10 Gbps, compared to 4G’s 100 Mbps peak.

-5G technology offers latency as low as 1ms. For the ignorant, latency is the time it takes a device to send a packet of data and get a response. Shorter latency means faster response.

-5G technology provides seamless coverage in remote areas across the country. This improves energy efficiency, spectral efficiency, and network efficiency.

-5G will also usher in technological advancements in the country, such as virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). These technologies will have end-to-end impacts across multiple sectors, including healthcare, agriculture, education, and disaster management.

-5G will improve the fan experience at sporting events such as live music festivals and football matches. The low latency provided by 5G provides an immersive experience for sports enthusiasts.

-5G will also enable new services and products powered by Internet of Things (IoT) technology. The advanced capabilities offered by 5G networks will also facilitate new business models.

-The arrival of 5G will also transform the transport and mobility sector. With 5G, we can establish a network of electric vehicles (EVs) and charging stations to maximize the cost-effectiveness of the EV ecosystem.

-The next-generation 5G network will also help remote work more effectively. 5G-powered smart buildings can help provide a better working environment for employees, reduce costs for employers, and increase productivity.

-5G technology will boost the Industrial Revolution 4.0. All-new 5G services will connect various Internet of Things (IoT) sensors and devices to automate the scheduling of various processes.

-5G will enable customers to watch 4K video on their mobile phones. It also enables the use of AR/VR, mobile gaming apps, and many other immersive activities and new applications.

・The next-generation 5G technology will also affect the production and distribution of goods. His 5G applications in the manufacturing sector include reducing costs, reducing downtime, minimizing waste and increasing productivity. 5G is expected to reduce logistics costs from the current 13-14% to 5%.

-5G will also have a major impact in the areas of safety and surveillance.5G technology and its applications will enable remote control of disaster areas, live 4K feeds from HD cameras installed in public spaces, etc. . It also helps minimize the role of humans in hazardous industrial activities such as deep mining and offshore operations.
