5G in India: How will this high-speed network technology work? Learn everything

Last year the 5G network was rolled out commercially. It was first rolled out in South Korea and the US, followed by a commercial roll out in China and several European countries. This year of 2020 means to bring the 5G network to the mainstream. In many other countries including India, this service can be rolled out by the end of this year. The special feature of 5G network is that it can transfer data at a speed of 10 times higher than the current 4G network. That is, your favorite movie that takes 25 to 30 minutes to download will be downloaded in just a few seconds.
Also, video calling of Ultra HD quality can also be done. Not only this, strong connectivity will be available in smart devices, due to which your life will become faster. The 5G’s fifth generation network technology will not only provide better connectivity, but will also make your entire lifestyle more exciting and faster. Come, know about this 5G technology ..
The 5G network mainly operates on four types of frequency Non-standalone 5G (NSA-5G), standalone 5G (SA-5G), Sub-6 GHz and mmWave. In any region, only through these four types of spectrum is the 5G network delivered to the users’ devices.
This is called basic 5G network and initially network service providers in any region provide a 5G network to users based on this spectrum. In this, the 5G network is deployed using the infrastructure available for 4G LTE. This spectrum is used by telecom companies for testing of networks in any region.

Standalone 5G

As the name itself suggests, it does not roll over the previous infrastructure. This spectrum does not release on older 4G LTE networks. It operates on its own cloud native network core. Many countries of the world have adopted this spectrum and it is working there.

Sub-6 GHz

This is called the mid band 5G spectrum. It has a network frequency of less than 6GHz and is used for low band telecommunications. This network spectrum is used in many countries including China.


This is called high band 5G network frequency. It uses frequencies above 24GHz, which has a higher bandwidth. It has a data speed of up to 1Gbps. Several smaller and lower range cellphone towers are used to deploy mmWave to complete coverage.

Dynamic network sharing

Telecom companies use dynamic network sharing to upgrade networks from 4G to 5G. This technology is possible only with the NSA 5G spectrum as the 5G network can use two radio frequencies simultaneously. With the help of which the speed of data will increase and the devices will be able to access the network faster than 4G LTE. The advantage of sub-6 GHz frequency is that this frequency maintains 5G network connectivity by penetrating any solid object such as building. Because of this, you will continue to get network connectivity in indoor also.
The 5G network could be rolled out in India this year, for which telecom companies have started preparing their network infrastructure. Reliance Jio and Airtel are already claiming that they are developing 5G ready infrastructure. That is, these two companies have ready their network for Non Standalone 5G. As soon as 5G spectrum is allocated in India, these companies will start providing 4G LTE as well as 5G network to the users using dynamic sharing technology. Users will start getting network connectivity with two radio frequencies.
