New Delhi: India needs to roll out 5G faster in order to take advantage of the economic benefits it can bring to the nation, a top Intel executive said here on Monday.
“For 5G to happen, the network needs to move from proprietary-fixed, function-based – which is what it is today in most parts – to open standards-based scalable, programmable, agile and Cloud-centric network. As Cloud is elastic, so should be the network,” Prakash Mallya, vice president, and managing director, Sales and Marketing Group – Intel India, told IANS on the sidelines of the India Mobile Congress (IMC) 2019 here.
According to industry leaders, spectrum auction and pricing are two biggest concerns that need to be addressed for faster 5G rollout. For 5G to happen faster in India, the industry also must come together, said Mallya. (IANS)
