India’s digital transformation journey in the 21st century is enormously propelled by the latest next-generation wireless 5G network. Being the fastest-growing digital economy in the world, this technological revolution is playing a key role in achieving the 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development for India where the key outcomes will be economic growth, green job creation, and a sustainable environment.
The 5G network has the benefits of high speed, high reliability, super-low latency, higher flexibility, and low operational cost replacing wired connection networks with a wireless framework for ultra-important applications. This answers sustainability challenges in areas like water management, pollution, energy efficiency, smart buildings, traffic management, etc. The combined function of the 5G network with other technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, big data, Artificial Intelligence (AI), etc assists cross-sectoral developments efficiently using natural energy resources and reducing GHG emissions as well as waste generation with improved energy-efficient systems making this the perfect solution for sustainable development.
The utility of the 5G network is vast, the 5G-enabled smart parking software is expected to reduce carbon emissions in rising traffic congestions on busy Indian roads among many other important ones. The ability of a 5G system to handle densely connected devices at once complemented by IoT applications gives rise to industrial automation, connected homes, smart cities, edge computing, and autonomous vehicles, which can tackle large data in real-time to optimize the use of energy consumption and resources.
Telemedicine is another area where the 5G technology promises a bright future for the healthcare sector as this is at the core of the holistic development of Indian society. Augmented and Virtual Reality applications found their usability in the field of retail, entertainment, and education industries to provide real-life experiences to individuals with the help of 5G technology.
The lower electricity use along with the lower level of emissions powered by lower consumption of inputs such as water, gas, etc is leading to give competitive advantage to sustainable 5G solutions in India. The list of their applications is endless, as this technology is creating wonders by transforming the lifestyle and work culture in diverse ways to yield step-ahead solutions to hold India’s sustainable growth and development.
