Swedish communication services company Ericsson and Mukesh Ambani-owned Reliance Jio have showcased their jointly developed 5G use case demos at the India Mobile Congress 2018 (IMC).
Mathew Oommen, President, Reliance Jio, said: "The rapid evolution of digital technologies is redefining and transforming how we use and access goods, information, and services as these are all driven by the power of data. For us as a nation, it is imperative that operators are aggressively incentivized to accelerate the deployment of deep fiber as this lays the foundation for this transformation, enabling us to seamlessly transition to 5G. Jio is excited to work with our global partners on technologies and use cases that allow us to deliver affordable broadband for ALL and ensure that we leverage 5G to its full potential."
The use cases demonstrated at the event over the live 5G network in Navi Mumbai and in Delhi leveraged the gigabit speed and ultra-low latency capabilities of 5G to exemplify key benefits such as the remote operation of machines (robotic arms, vehicles) and possibilities enabled through virtual reality (VR)," the statement said.
Nunzio Mirtillo, Head of South East Asia, Oceania and India at Ericsson, says: "Our goal behind developing use cases with our partners is to develop tangible concepts that can be taken forward and implemented by industry. Today, we take a big step towards making 5G a reality in India by showing use cases that can find application in sectors such as mining, education, and healthcare."
"It demonstrates remote operation and control of a car that is connected over a live 5G network on 3.5 GHz (gigahertz) band at the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi. The use case was made accessible at the IMC for remote driving and showcasing assistance through 5G edge computing."
The 5G connected car showcased "5G's reliability, high data rate capability, and low latency - key elements for remote operations of machines".
