Huawei 5G supports China Media Group

Published

on

NEW DELHI: China Media Group’s Spring Festival Celebration event in 2020 was the first live broadcast using the 5G commercial network abroad.

The China Media Group shooting team uses the 5G commercial network services of the two major carriers in the UAE carried by Huawei’s 5G equipment to transmit the live broadcast signals from Dubai to Beijing in real time to celebrate the Spring Festival.

Huawei 5G Base Station,5G CPEs and 5G Mi-Fi were adopted in the commercial network. The 5G network uploads an average of 80 Mbit/s HD video stream, enabling the Dubai residents to live broadcast their New Year greetings in HD mode.

Chinese audiences can receive the greetings in real time. As a global pioneer in 5G commercial deployment, the UAE has built a large-scale 5G commercial network in 2019 to provide 5G services for the public. In addition, the continuously cooperation with vertical industries are conducted to build Dubai as a 5G city.

The 5G network features include wide coverage, large bandwidth, and low latency. It can enable collaborative live broadcasting, signal backhaul, and remote command and dispatch across multiple locations. HD video streams can be transmitted to the studio in real time by 5G instead of deploying optical fibers, microwave transmission systems, or satellite broadcast vehicle.

The 5G network simplifies the transmission of HD video signals. The mobile phone-sized 5G Mi-Fi that weighs only 180 grams can be used to complete the live broadcast tasks. The 5G live broadcast solution has been used in the media industry for multiple times, making live broadcast more convenient, flexible and cost-effective.

As the media and video industry evolves towards HD, multi-angle, and highly interactive experience, the media industry will have increasing requirements for mobile high-bandwidth transmission networks. The media industry will become an important vertical industry that enjoys 5G.

With the large-scale commercial use of 5G commercial networks and related terminals, 5G will gradually enable vertical industries to shift from demonstration projects to large-scale commercialization and promote digital transformation of industries.

After 5G equipment, Tata Group looking to enter semiconductor manufacturing

Published

on

NEW DELHI: Tata Group is looking to make a foray into semiconductor manufacturing, Chairman N Chandrasekaran said on Monday.

Pegging the market opportunity of high-tech manufacturing of electronics at USD 1 trillion, Chandrasekaran said Tata Group has already set up a business to seize the opportunity.

His remarks come days after the USD 100-billion group announced entry into 5G equipment manufacturing and a string of acquisitions to create the Tata Digital business.

Semiconductor manufacturing, which involves building chipsets among other things, requires high investments and India does not have any such facility yet.

Chandrasekaran explained that alterations to the global supply chains, which are heavily dependent on China, in the aftermath of the pandemic and geopolitical changes, will make businesses shift their reliance on other countries and called this a huge opportunity for India, which becomes the second base.

At the Tata Group, we have already pivoted into a number of new businesses like electronics manufacturing, 5G network equipment as well as semiconductors, in all probability.

On rebalancing supply chains, India can significantly benefit from the geopolitical shifts that we are seeing. At the group, we have already set up a business to seize the promise of high-tech manufacturing of electronics, precision manufacturing, assembly and testing and semiconductors in the medium term, he said while speaking at IMC Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s AGM.

He, however, did not elaborate on the exact plans on this front for the group.

Chandrasekaran said he sees four trends emerging in the post-pandemic world — rapid digital acceleration, new approach to supply chains, a re-imagination of growth with environmental sustainability at the core and inclusion of health and wellness concerns by every business.

The four themes will play into each of our own existing businesses, and they are also leading to brand new initiatives for the Tata Group, he said.

Tata Digital is building multiple platforms including a consumer offering covering retail, travel, financial services, health and education, which will target both high-frequency buys and also discretionary spends, he said.

Chandrasekaran said when it comes to environmental sustainability, businesses need to have time-bound goals, not vague and distant targets, and it is critical to invest in research and development in future growth sectors such as renewable energy which is likely to see 20 new sources of power emerging in the next two decades.

Given where India is in our development curve, we have an opportunity to address our jobs challenge through a leapfrog to a green economy, through solar installation, microgrids, sustainable cooling, and better waste management. At the Tata Group, we are looking at all of these sectors, he said.

Chandrasekaran, who took over the group chairmanship after leading its IT arm TCS, said there is a need to adopt artificial intelligence, cloud and data more aggressively, and Tata Group considers this as a top priority.

Chairman of the group, which devotes nearly all its profits to philanthropic causes, also spoke about the inequities which are being created because of the pandemic and urged for a fast-paced rollout of services to universalize education and healthcare services.

Solving such problems using digital technologies will also create employment opportunities, especially for the low skilled people, and help create a market, Chandrasekaran said, expecting them to deliver 30 million new jobs.

He said with hybrid working possibilities, a good number of the 120 million women educated till the secondary school level can get jobs, and added that this alone can add USD 440 billion to the GDP.

5G roamers to surpass 200 million by 2026

Published

on

NEW DELHI:A new Juniper Research study has found that the global number of roaming subscribers using 5G services will increase from 4.5 million in 2021 to 210 million in 2026.

As the international travel industry recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic, it recommends that operators must now focus on increasing 5G roaming support to accommodate the future rise in demand for data when roaming over 5G networks.

The new research, 5G Roaming Strategies: Future Outlook, Opportunities & Market Forecasts 2021-2026, urges roaming vendors to develop 5G-enabled roaming features such as:

Roaming analytics
Sponsored roaming
Steering of roaming
These services will support the management of an increasing number of 5G roaming connections, the rise in demand for 5G roaming data, and help operators to maximise 5G roaming monetisation.

5G Roaming Data to Represent 115 Million Hours of 4K Video by 2026

The report predicts that, as 5G roaming proliferates, vendor competition around the 5G-enabled roaming services mentioned above will intensify. Subscribers will expect comparable levels of bandwidth and latency when roaming over 5G to home network connectivity, and roaming vendors must accommodate this demand via value-added services.

The study projects that global roaming data traffic from 5G subscribers will increase from 2.6 PB in 2021 to 770 PB by 2026; representing enough data to stream 115 million hours of 4K video from platforms such as Netflix.

5G Technology to Necessitate Roaming Overhaul

In addition, the research found that this anticipated rise in data will necessitate the establishment of novel agreements that explicitly cover 5G roaming data, and provide roaming subscribers with comparable user experiences whilst roaming.

Research author Scarlett Woodford noted “As demand for international travel returns, operators must adjust to the significant uptake of 5G subscriptions during the pandemic. A failure to provide 5G roaming capabilities in key travel destinations will diminish brand reputation amongst subscribers and lead to churn to competitors”
