India and Israel will work jointly on development of fifth generation (5G) telecom technologies
09/09/2013

 

India’s Telecom and IT Minister Kapil Sibal and his Israeli counterpart Gilad Erdan  agreed in June 2013 that both countries will cooperate in exploring the possibilities of standard formulation development and manufacturing in the area of 4G and 5G telecom technologies.

“Israel has technology and innovation and India has the capital and market. The two areas which emerge out of discussion related to telecom were: reducing roaming charges between India and Israel and exploring the possibilities of standard formulation, research and development, and manufacturing in the area of 4G and 5G,” a Department of Telecommunications (DoT) official noted.

At present, Indian telecom operators are providing 2G, 3G and some 4G services. No country in the world has 5G technology while some companies claim to have tested 5G technology. There have been claims by companies that 5G technology will be in place by 2020.

Technology experts believe 5G technology will enable people to have a fibre network similar to user experience on a wireless connection. It can provide speed of 10 Gigabit per second Internet speed, which is 100 times faster than the mobile technology used these days.

The Indian government has initiated the process of “constituting a joint working group” to work in the area of 4G and 5G.
