India needs 5G more than entire Europe: Nokia says

India needs 5G more than entire Europe

The Tech Blog World, NEW DELHI: Finnish telecom gear maker Nokia said that India has a huge unserved market opportunity that will drive the 5G adoption in the country, and need for the next-generation technology will be higher here as compared to the entire European region.

“Even if you only have 1% of your subscriber’s base taking the service in India that's still 3 to 4 million people and in Europe, that’s a 100% of your subscriber base in any country. So, there is a huge opportunity and then an unserved market opportunity,” Phil Twist, Vice President of Networks Marketing and Communications at Nokia, told ET.

The executive said that fixed wireless access could prove to be a significant 5G use case for providing broadband coverage in rural parts of the country. “It will all depend upon if the government wants to support and make spectrum available, besides telcos making plans to invest in these types of new market opportunity,” he added.

The Indian government expects to complete processes for 5G spectrum auction by August and the services will be rolled out by 2020.

While Reliance Jio wants all available bandwidth to be offered immediately and has no problems with the prices recommended by the Trai, India's largest telecom operator Vodafone Idea has urged the telecom department not to hold spectrum auction till 2020 on the grounds that fresh need for quality radio waves will arise only once the 5G ecosystem is ready.

Second-ranked Bharti Airtel wants a “swift” auction but only of 4G airwaves in the year ending March 2019 at reduced starting prices and it backed a 5G spectrum sale only in FY20.

Nokia’s Twist said that currently there is a headroom for the 4G network to be expanded with technologies like massive mimo, new antennas and 4.9G technology to address the capacity-related challenges in the urban areas.

He, however, added that if the traffic continues to grow more than 50% a year, there will be the capacity issue that will only be addressed by the 5G technology. “…then, you need the new 3.5 Ghz 5G spectrum and potentially low spectrum for very wide area coverage,” he further added.

The executive believes that India could very much launch commercial 5G services in 2020 if the spectrum is made available next year, resulting in first deployments within 2019

“Next year there will be commercial devices, and standards in place that support the delivery of the software so there's no reason why not India should launch 5G by 2020,” he added.

The telecom department had earlier this year invited Ericsson, Nokia, Samsung, Cisco, Huawei and NEC to partner with the government in 5G technology-based trials. Huawei and Samsung have already revealed their plans to begin 5G field trials in partnership with Indian telecom operators and the telecom department.

The Indian government has said it will provide 5G airwaves and backhaul to telecom operators and telecom gear vendors.
