BSNL and Airtel to Collaborate with Nokia for 5G in India

Browse This Page

While Nokia has had a bittersweet run in the past few years, Nokia Networks is still in the game. Nokia Networks is collaborating with two of the major network operators in India, (and many major Networks globally), state-run Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) and Airtel, to prepare India for the 5th generation (5G) network technology and the Internet of Things (IoT). 5G is the successor of the 4th generation (4G) network technology which was released in USA back in 2011. Though 4G was announced in India in 2012 it was rolled out properly in 2016.

Nokia Networks intend to utilize 5G first, which is an end-to-end 5G solution by Nokia, for the purpose. This includes the AirScale Radio Access portfolio and AirFrame datacenter platform, which will support broadband, ultra-reliability and low latency communication. Nokia will try to strengthen Airtel’s existing 4G network in India by improving aspects such as efficiency, operations and cost-effectiveness. Nokia will also work towards ensuring that Airtel is ready for the inclusion of the 5G technology in its network.

Nokia has also partnered with BSNL for developing the 5G technology in India. Nokia will help BSNL improve future network demands that include virtual reality, healthcare, connected cars and remote healthcare. Nokia is aiming at driving the 5G network force in India. Nokia’s India Market Head, Sanjay Malik, gave a statement confirming the collaboration with BSNL.

In line with the Indian Government’s thrust to boost the digital infrastructure to enhance economic growth, Nokia is delighted to partner with BSNL in the development of 5G ecosystem for the Indian market. We will leverage our global experience in 5G-related industry projects and collaborations to enable BSNL to evolve their networks for the programmable world

The Government of India is eager to bring the 5G technology to India at an early stage. In a related development, Reliance Jio and Samsung will also partner to upgrade the 5G technology in India. Last Tuesday, Samsung announced its “I&G (Infill and Growth) Project” for Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited, which will work to help Reliance Jio expand its network capacity and coverage. Today, Jio has a penetration of 90% across India’s population. Samsung has also said that it will offer professional solution services to Reliance Jio via Samsung VoLTE, Quality Monitoring and Analysis (VoMA) and Cognitive Traffic Monitoring and Optimiser. Confirming the partnership, President and Head of Networks Business at Samsung Electronics, Youngky Kim said,

The massive deployment of over a million cells across India is especially remarkable. We will strive to create new paradigms for LTE-Advanced Pro and 5G by closely cooperating with Jio as a unified workforce. As Jio’s end-to-end LTE solutions partner, it is a great pleasure for Samsung to contribute to Jio’s tremendous success.

 

While 4G has a speed that is 10 times faster than 3G, the speed of 5G is expected to be 1200 times faster than 4G. The global release of the 5G network will most likely be in 2020. Hopefully, it will be launched in India soon after.

you don’t know about 5g is not just about speed upgrade.it opens up a lot more applications than just mobile internet.so if an operator can invest money its better to directly go to 5g infrastructure
