To set a phase for rural development, an element of innovation is highly essential for the nation to progress. A lot of development and innovation has been recorded in the fields of agriculture and production. The government and non government organisation too are encouraging researchers to innovate things that can bring a next level of development.
Likewise a team of researchers at Dayalbagh University are working to develop the fifth generation mobile network system (5G) and to integrate it with existing cellular systems on single platform.
Agra-based Dayalbagh University is one of three institutions in India apart from IIT-Chennai and IIT-Bombay who has a dedicated laboratory to perform research work on 5G mobile network system.
Assistant professor K S Daya, who has been working on the 5G project for last six months with three other professors claimed, "By 2025, 5G will be reality. Everything we use such as car, airplanes, home appliances and other gadgets will operate on 5G network. Over here in our specifically designed and commissioned laboratory of ‘Live Test Bed’ funded by HRD ministry, we are working to develop the 5G network and also to integrate previous or existing cellular network systems (2G, 3G and 4G) on single platform with it."
She said, "The idea of integrating all the network system on single platform is to penetrate and provide wireless connectivity services to people, especially those who belong to far remote rural areas."
Illustrating how the system will work, she said, "In integrated network system, people living in urban areas can travel in self-driven car – who will communicate with other cars exchanging data to ensure safe driving by using 5G, but in rural areas, people can use same integrated system with low bandwidth 2G or 3G network to get instant analysis report of their soil quality. One won’t have to use high bandwidth network for downloading report which will save money."
She said, "At present the current 4G transfer data with the speed of 10 Mbps but we are working to make it 10 GB per seconds in 5G. We wish to share our expertise and experience with IIT-Chennai and Bombay which we have gained in research and development of 5G."
