India boasts of two Public Sector Telecom Companies which are under the Union Telecom Ministry. These companies i.e. Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd and BSNL are trying to overcome all odds in order to face the competition from private telecom companies which have the same interest. Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL).
A public telecom company that has operations in Mumbai and Delhi is at the moment trying to survive in the industry as they are making huge losses. As for BSNL, the only way to avoid this loss is making technological changes which will make it easy for them to compete with Private Telecom Companies. At the moment, BSNL is determined to launch a new 5G service that will make it easier for their customers to enjoy what they have to offer.
Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL), a state owned Telecom Company is expected to roll out 5G services all over the country that will be accompanied by a global launch of the same. BSNL is currently working together with Nokia, ZTE and Coriant on a new technological pathway that will see through the launching of BSNL 5G services by June 2020. BSNL is determined to launch the new 5G services once it is released all over the world even though it was left behind when it came to launching 3G and 4G services in India.
Currently, the BSNL 5G services are on trial before it can finally be released to the general public. To make this launch a success, BSNL is determined to develop 5G enabled Smartphone’s which will then be distributed to the market. This is being achieved by signing different Memorandum of Association like the one that was signed between BSNL and NTT Advanced Technology Corporation, a Japanese based firm. This memorandum of association was signed way back in February when BSNL 5G service was still in its early stages.
Another Memorandum of Association was signed in March 2017 involving BSNL and Nokia, a company that deals with innovations in phones, digital health and mobile networks. This collaboration was mainly done for the sole reason of coming up with Multi access-edge computing and Software Defined Network (SDN). BSNL has also partnered with Coriant, a packet optical and mobile routing solutions company that is based in the US.
Currently, Telco is looking for airwaves in the premium 700 MHz band which will be used by customers all over the country to access BSNL 5G services. This is done in collaboration with the Department of Telecom (DOT). Through this action, Telco will make sure that every part of India is able to get access to this 5G service in the same way that it is done in Germany, France USA.
With the launch of BSNL 5G services, you will no longer have to worry about slow surfing speeds as it has been specifically designed to solve this problem through the increased bandwidth. Once this service is rolled out across India, all issues related to an internet connection will be handled within a matter of seconds.
