Sheth explained why 5G is not just a possibility but it is an inevitable phenomenon. Realme was one of the first brands in the industry to announce roll out of affordable 5G smartphones in India.

It is a global phenomenon. It is important to understand why Realme entered into the 5G much before even the 5g services have rolled out.”

Explaining the importance of the upcoming spectrum, Sheth said, “5G is about a complete ecosystem, the ecosystem of IoT, which will be connected to the billions of devices. 5G is going to be extremely important then.

When asked how will 5G help to transform living in the future, Amit Marwah Head of Marketing and Corporate Affairs, Nokia India said, “We look at 5G as an revolution to technology. When we went from 1G to 4G, it was an evolution. When we get to 5G, it’s going to be a revolution. Why I say this is because it is going to enhance the experience multifold. We are talking about 10 times more capacities. This is a revolution which will bring use cases and possibilities for not only connecting mobile data and broadband data but taking it into industry verticals. 5G, in my view, is like the first ‘G’ for machines.”

Anku Jain Managing Director, MediaTek India explained how chipsets will be an important part of the 5G expansion in India. Jain said, “In the last two years, we have actually seen a massive adoption of products like smart TVs, smartphones, set up boxes, routers, and so on. All these devices have a chipset functioning as their heart and brain. So chipsets do play a very key role in you know, making these devices available. In terms of 5G, we feel it is a revolution and it is inevitable. The adoption of 5G is important for Industry 4.0.”
