At a telecom gathering in New Delhi today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi introduced 5G services in India.
In India, 5G, which can deliver ultra-high speed internet, ushers in a new era of streaming capabilities. In a few cities, PM Modi introduced 5G services during the IMC 2022 convention.
Over the next few years, 5G, or fifth generation service, will be available throughout the nation, bringing with it entirely new societal, industrial, and economic advantages.
Because of its faster speed and lower latency compared to 4G, 5G raises the bar for streaming and gaming for civilian use.
One of the most significant distinctions between 4G and 5G is latency. In simple terms, latency is the time that passes after data is transferred when an instruction to do so is issued. In other words, internet speed increases as latency decreases. When opposed to 4G, which has a latency of 60 to 98 milliseconds, 5G has a latency of less than 5 milliseconds.
Peak download speeds of 20 Gb/s (gigabits per second), or 20,480 Mb/s, are possible with 5G. (megabits per second). To put it into perspective, a 20Gb/s internet connection may deliver download rates of 2.5 GB/s (2,560 MB/s), or gigabytes per second (megabytes per second).
A 1 GB file may be downloaded in 0.03 seconds using those figures.
The 5G era ushers in a new era in commercial or industrial sectors aside from streaming movies or playing online games. The development of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Augmented Reality (AR), and other technologies that can have a profound impact on a variety of industries, including healthcare, disaster relief, education, and agriculture, among others, depends on extremely fast internet speeds.
The rapidly expanding Indian electronic vehicle (EV) industry will benefit from 5G in order to run its business.
With the speeds that 5G delivers, Internet of Things (IOT) technologies—an umbrella term for services that use or operate over the internet, such as automation, transportation, food delivery, etc.—could undergo a revolution.
