'5G Will Enable Remote Operation Of Equipment'

As the world becomes better connected with the onset of smart technologies, 5G–the fifth generation of cellular networks--is expected to create never-before-seen opportunities. Ankit Agarwal, Managing Director, Sterlite Technologies, talks about the five ways in which 5G will change our everyday lives:

'5G Will Enable Remote Operation Of Equipment'

1. Enhanced video content delivery: Video applications related to 4K/8K videos, virtual and augmented reality experiences, ultra-low latency live broadcast, high-speed mobile video communication and Internet of Vehicles will arise when 5G is widely implemented. Major sports networks are now filming and streaming live sporting events wirelessly utilising 5G micro-networks.

2. Foundation of future smart cities: It could hasten the development of new forms of smart transportation and even help reduce commute time. Furthermore, smart buildings can provide a more comfortable working environment and result in increased productivity and lower expenses for businesses.

3. Enhanced shopping experience: There has been a split between the physical and the digital world with e-commerce shopping eliminating traditional brick-and-mortar shopping while providing unrivalled ease, speed and accessibility. The Metaverse, which will be supported by 5G, is where these two previously independent worlds will collide to create an experience that will permanently change the way customers interact with brands.

4. Future of industry 4.0: With 5G, businesses will be able to employ technologies like artificial intelligence to increase productivity and acquire additional insights from data. 5G will enable predictive maintenance as well as remote operation of equipment in addition to assisting businesses in automating their processes. Furthermore, this interconnected strategy will enhance the client experience.

5. Boon to healthcare: There are numerous scenarios in which speedier diagnosis can save lives. For example, within the first hour after a medical emergency, a linked ambulance might be able to quickly diagnose if a patient has had a stroke, congestive heart failure or myocardial infarction. When one requires the services of a specialised surgeon who is physically unavailable, 5G will have the ability to bridge the gap.
