Nokia is talking to Indian Telecom Operators for 5G Networks
Even though 4G networks in India have not been a real success, thanks to poor deployment and connectivity and also due to high charges, Nokia is in talks with various telecom companies to provide 5G networks in India.
While major telecos are still investing into 4G technology trying to get it up to speed with other countries, with respect to network and infrastructure.
5G technology is leaps and bounds ahead of current gen networks and, many countries are already investing heavily in the technology. With 5G users can attain 100 megabit per second speed and the infrastructure can handle 1000 times more data traffic.
India is expected to initiate 5G by 2020 and Nokia equipment will play a major role in providing this technology across the country.
It will be used for purposes beyond voice and data communications carried by people today. It will has less than 1 millisecond latency that will be used by machines for quick action like for to stop in case it identifies any obstacle, surgery from remote location etc.Discussion about spectrum (at global level) in which 5G will operate will finish by 2019. Commercial 5G deployment will start in 2020. Then you will see 100 mbps guaranteed speed everywhere : Nokia Networks Head of Mobile Broadband Milivoj Vela
