Airtel and Huawei
Airtel and Huawei, a Chinese smartphone maker has joined hands to bring the 5G technology in India.
The trial was conducted at Airtel’s Network Experience Centre in Manesar in Gurugram. And they were able to reach a speed of 3Gbps
“This is small but a very significant step in our journey towards 5G. The promise of 5G is endless. It will be a game changer and, it will change the way we live, work and engage. We’re moving quickly to begin collaboration towards 5G interoperability and development testing (IODT) based on the 3GPP R15 standards. We look forward to work closely with our partners for developing a robust 5G ecosystem in India,” said Abhay Savargaonkar, Director-Networks, Bharti Airtel.
“We have been focusing on developing 5G ecosystem and use cases and the show with Bharti Airtel impressively demonstrates the performance capability of 5G in 3.5 GHz band,” said Emmanuel Coelho Alves, Director, Wireless Marketing, Huawei HQ.
Airtel not only partnered with Huawei but also with Ericsson and Nokia so that they can bring 5G technology ASAP. And can compete in a market where a new service provider JIO took a good market volume through cheap 4G services.
So lets see which provider will give us 5G first and at affordable price.
