The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has constituted working groups that will explore the implementation of 5G across eight different sectors such as agriculture, fintech, transportation and education. The concerned working groups will also explore application of 5G services in water and sewage management, industry 4.0 and smart grid.
One of the key responsibilities of the working groups will be to study and submit a report on how 5G can be used in the specific sector they are concerned with. Further, they’ll also examine the global use cases of 5G and detail the ways of adopting the technology in India.
Telecommunication Engineering Centre (TEC) will lead the task of preparing these reports and all eight working groups will be headed by a TEC member.
Apart from this, the working groups will have members from telecom vendor community as well such as Ericsson, Huawei, Nokia and Qualcomm.
