IIT Hyderabad has successfully developed 5g wireless broadband for the first time in India in association with WiSig Network Private Limited. Team of researchers has successfully tested a maiden 5G data call using an indigenously developed Open Radio Access Network (ORAN), a 5G compliant technology.
5G technology is not only capable of connecting people around the globe with it’s ultrafast connectivity but it has the potential to change people’s lives. It can deliver higher multi-gbps peak data speed, ultra low latency, more reliability, massive network capacity and so forth. Previously India has imported 2G, 3G and 4G technologies and though many of them are assembled in our country, the actual technology is still out of our reach. Following the concept of Atmanirbhar Bharat, IIT-Hyderabad has come up with indigenously developed and successfully tested 5g wireless broadband technologies in association with WiSig Network Private Limited. The call was made using a MIMO capable base station that supports 1000MHz bandwidth in the 3.3 – 3.5 GHz frequency band.
“Equipped with these capabilities, India can be self-reliant in designing and manufacturing 5G wireless broadband equipment and play an increasingly important role in future generation technologies, and services” said professor Kiran, dean researcher and developer.
