Airtel 5G Test Runs At Rural Market In Partnership with Ericsson

0 comments

Airtel Test Runs 5G At Rural Market In Partnership with EricssonBharti Airtel (“Airtel”) and Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) have conducted India’s first 5G network demonstration in rural geography. The demonstration took place in Bhaipur Bramanan village on the outskirts of Delhi/NCR using a 5G trial spectrum allocated to Airtel by the Department of Telecom.

The trial showcases the massive potential offered by 5G towards bridging the digital divide by enabling access to high-speed broadband through solutions such as enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) and Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) services.

The highlight of the trial was the demonstration of over 200 Mbps throughput on a 3GPP-compliant 5G FWA device at a distance of over 10 Km from the site. This translated into an inter-site (between two 5G sites) coverage of approximately 20 km, thus offering the ability to provide high-speed broadband coverage even in the remotest of geographies. As part of the trial, even a commercially available 3GPP-based 5G smartphone was able to connect to the 5G test network and record 100+ Mbps speeds at a distance of over 10 Km from the site.

The 5G site infrastructure was powered by Ericsson’s 3GPP-compliant 5G radio. The trial was carried out by utilizing the allocated mid-band trial spectrum in the 3500MHz band and the existing FDD spectrum band. The results of the trial demonstrate Airtel’s capability to enable 5G for both capacity and coverage over its existing nationwide 4G infrastructure.

Randeep Singh Sekhon, Airtel CTO says, “Having demonstrated India’s first 5G network and also the first 5G cloud gaming experience, Airtel is proud to have also conducted the nation’s first 5G trial in rural geography. 5G will be a transformational technology when it comes to delivering broadband coverage to the last mile through use cases like FWA and contribute to a more inclusive digital economy. Airtel will continue to be at the forefront of 5G technology and bring more India relevant use cases through partnerships such as the one with Ericsson.”

Nunzio Mirtillo, Head of Ericsson Southeast Asia, Oceania and India says, “The technology milestone of extended coverage achieved by Ericsson and Airtel as part of the ongoing 5G trial in India is even more significant since it demonstrates how 5G can ‘connect the unconnected in India, enable faster 5G rollout and truly help India realize its ‘Digital India’ vision”. 5G will serve as a socio-economic multiplier for the country. According to an Ericsson study, on average, a 10 percent increase in the Mobile Broadband adoption ratio causes a 0.8 percent increase in GDP.”

Over the past few months, Bharti Airtel and Ericsson have partnered to demonstrate enhanced speeds of more than 1Gbps on a live 5G network set up at Cyber Hub in Gurgaon using Bharti’s 3500 MHz trial spectrum. Earlier in January this year, the two companies also showcased Ericsson Spectrum Sharing capabilities on a commercially deployed installed base of 1800 MHz liberalized frequencies in Hyderabad to give consumers their first experience of 5G from a live commercial network.

In India, people say direct “No” for a postpaid connection and willing to take a prepaid connection for ease of use. Before we continue on the article, let’s compare Postpaid and Prepaid. In simple terms, the postpaid connection is use and then pay mode but in Prepaid you can pay and then use. Postpaid bills are generated every month and while as prepaid is on validity-based recharges, in Postpaid customer doesn’t have a hassle, and customers are given a minimum of 10 days and greater depending on the operator for clearing the bills, while as Prepaid customers required to ensure that sufficient packs or Talktime are available as their services are based on validity.

Why Should We Take A Postpaid Connection Instead of Legacy Prepaid Connection

Airtel Jio Vi BSNL

In India, all the telecoms such as Bharti Airtel, Vi ( Vodafone Idea), BSNL, and Reliance Jio offer postpaid services for Indian Consumers. Now the postpaid plans are tailored for everyone’s needs from Individual Usage to Family Usage.

India’s first Postpaid Tailored Plan was launched in India by Bharti Airtel known as myPlan and later the plan is migrated to myPlan Infinity.

What do today’s postpaid plans offer ?.

  • Truly Unlimited Voice Calls in India and during roaming.
  • Data Rollover, previous month data is getting carried forward.
  • OTT Benefits, depending on the plan and operator.
    • Amazon Prime Worth Rs.999 Free For 1 Year
    • Netflix
    • ZEE5
    • Hotstar VIP Subscription etc.
  • Family Plans
  • The convenience of One Payment for All Family Members
  • One Customer Service for the customer needs in the family.

Are you working from home/executive/business professional, Postpaid plans are the best plans as there are no daily data limitations, during this pandemic the major connection with the customers/clients/business meeting is through video conferencing.

The postpaid plans are allotted monthly data benefits while the prepaid plans have daily data limits in their combo plan segment. As there are no daily data limit the unused data for the day will be carried forward to the next day or next month in the postpaid segment, while as in prepaid if daily data benefits are not utilized it will be forfeited and a data breach occurs if daily data limit is exhausted and customers require to recharge with additional data packs or use in pay as you go mode in enjoying high-speed internet services.

Secondly, if you are a busy executive/professional/self-employed / business person, it’s better to switch to a family plan offered by telecoms, its a better choice as you required to make a single payment and convenience enjoyed, no hassle for remembering the days of recharge of family members, friends, and relatives.
