At the ongoing World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC) 2019, China, Russia and Japan were in support of using alternative bands for 5G services with around 3000 Mhz of frequencies, while India is yet to decide on alternative bands having large chunk of airwaves to support the next generation telecom services, according to industry bodies.

  • The target of the iPhone maker is to ship at least 80 million of the new 5G iPhone models in a bid to overtake embattled Chinese tech giant Huawei, CNET reports.

    In a race to woo India and other countries with the latest technology- 5G network, China's major state-owned carriers like China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom rolled out their 5G data services across the country. More than 50 cities in China now have access to 5G. The Indian government had allowed Huawei to take part in 5G trials earlier.

    In the last 25 years, we would have bought maybe close to $800 billion worth of high technology stuff, but we have got no transfer of technology. We need to do this properly and we need to hire the best talent to do it for us, said Arogyaswami Paulraj, professor emeritus in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University and the inventor of MIMO.

    Huawei and rival ZTE to a lesser extent have come under global scrutiny after the United States raised security concerns regarding 5G equipment, given their perceived proximity to the Chinese government. The US has asked its allies to ban 5G gear from Huawei. Canada, Japan, New Zealand, and Australia have acquiesced.

    The current proposal of the DoT at the behest of the ISRO wants to slash the transmission capability of mobile base stations operating in the band. If accepted, this move will hurt India’s 5G ambitions, they said. ISRO has stated that if the transmission capability is not slashed, telecom signals will interfere with its satellites.

    The Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology on Wednesday announced the establishment of two offices to develop 6G, setting off the competition for the next-generation cellular data service that comes after the super-fast 5G. The Ministry said one of the offices will house the government agencies responsible for the relevant policy making.

    COAI, which represents Bharti Airtel, Vodafone Idea, and Reliance Jio Infocomm, has called on the government to scrap the proposal and take suitable steps to ensure that the Indian delegation participating at WRC-2019 supports the commercial deployment of 5G mobile services in the 26 GHz band.

    We are very open to having local manufacturing, not only 2G, 3G, but also 4G, says Huawei India CEO Jay Chen.

    Britain is moving towards a decision that will see Huawei allowed access to "non-contentious" parts of the network, potentially opening a rift with the US which has banned the company over fears that it is too close to Chinese intelligence agencies.

    The technology will also pave the way for driverless cars, further automation in factories, and allow users to remotely control appliances such as coffee makers and ovens via the internet.

    The firm is a key protagonist in US-China trade war that has seen billions of dollars of tit-for-tat tariffs.

    "If I should be in the shoes of the customer, obviously spectrum needs to be affordable, otherwise it does not make sense. I can't say if they will go muted or not, but there is a limit to investment capabilities of the operators, which is obvious."
