As Per Latest Information 5G Requires 6 GHz Band Spectrum

Telcos have been given the chance to compete for the mid-band spectrum in the 5G spectrum auction of 2022.

A successful 5G rollout requires at least 2 GHz of mid-band spectrum in each nation. India has the chance to give that to the carriers by holding an auction for the 6 GHz spectrum. The Broadband India Forum (BIF) is a group of tech companies that advocate for delicensing the 6 GHz band spectrum for Wi-Fi services.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • The 5G deployment in India is moving forward swiftly.
  • The mid-band spectrum is essential for wide-scale 5G deployment, therefore the telcos will need access to enough of it to offer 5G to customers across the nation.
  • The 2022 5G spectrum auction gave telcos the ability to bid against one another for mid-band spectrum in the 3.3–3.67 GHz area.

India’s 5G deployment is rapidly progressing, but to ensure long-lasting connectivity, the spectrum portfolio needs frequent updates. To achieve this, telcos are bidding for mid-band spectrum in the 3.3-3.67 GHz band, allowing them to hire more workers and cover the entire country.

For a successful 5G rollout, each nation must have access to at least 2 GHz of mid-band spectrum, according to the GSMA. India has the chance to give that to the carriers by holding an auction for the 6 GHz spectrum. The Broadband India Forum (BIF) is a group of tech companies that advocate for delicensing the 6 GHz band spectrum for Wi-Fi services. Tech businesses think that Wi-Fi services, which offer access in places where cell networks are weak, complement mobile networks.

The telcos will have a spectrum shortage in their mid-band portfolio if the 6 GHz band is delicensed. The GSMA stated in a blog post that each nation would require 2 GHz of mid-band spectrum by 2030 in order to meet demand for 5G. Although this is a difficult objective, the early adopters are making progress toward it through their spectrum roadmaps and tasks.

In order to satisfy its minimum requirement of 2 GHz of mid-band spectrum by 2030, India requires the 6 GHz spectrum to be put up for auction. In the upcoming years, a growing number of upgraded IoT (Internet of Things) devices would begin using 5G’s capacity. The only alternative left for the telcos is to secure the 6 GHz spectrum for their use.
