We discuss the following topics in this blog:
- Bringing broadband to Telangana’s rural places via T fibre project
- Developing data networks through FTec Telangana
- STL Academy’s F tech workshop exclusively for Telangana
In addition to these topics, we shall also be answering the following FAQs:
- What is 5G NR?
- What is WiFi?
At STL the larger purpose is to transform everyday living by delivering smart networks and the way we are engaged with companies to be data network innovators. STL Academy brings huge focus on building this capability. Building an ecosystem specialist in country is very key for delivering this larger purpose and vision for the company and country.
T Fibre Project
The way we are engaged with some of the projects in the states is to build this Network which will bring broadband to the rural places which in Telangana will be T fibre project. Team involved in this project and now we are considering the project where we can involve some of the greatest technology for deployment to make it faster and also make it reliable
Along with this side, we also reason that we brought F tech to Telangana to Hyderabad is basically also bring this biggest advantage off bringing this latest technology in developing data network, especially in the fibre side which is FTTX or wireless technology. The knowledge of next-generation which is all you people who are youngsters and what you get taught at colleges if you can actually get focused and you can get exposed to this find latest knowledge is in network deployment and it would be a great advantage for you to also be involved in this larger network deployment. Also, it helps to create a new capacity and new capability and our keen interest is that whatever we do in this business goes back to the society and it actually helps next generation take the best advantage.
Growing Telecom Industry
Apart from IT industry telecom industry is also growing in leaps and bounds I still remember the days when incoming call used to be 64 rupees and today all voice calls are free the reason is because it’s more of data being used instead of voice with 5G coming in things are going to further change which means a lot of job opportunities are going to get created but it will get created and people will be able to take benefit from these opportunities only if you are trained.
Sterlite is bringing FTec 2.0 to Telangana I would urge all colleges all students especially engineering colleges and Polytechnic colleges to participate in this unique event which is being brought by Sterlite where for two days on the 5th and 6th of March training would be provided on fibre technology. Be part of this and get an advantage and get a good job or internship in the telecom industry.
STL Academy is conducting an F tech workshop exclusively for Telangana in this workshop experts from various domains would be talking about fibre technologies smart cities and network converges. I would hence request all the engineers to participate actively in it and get themselves certified so that it would give them new job opportunities and a great career with the right skills. Please join this F tech with us in Hyderabad it is going to be a great opportunity. Don’t miss this opportunity and it is something that is very specially designed for you and the country’s needs today.
What is 5G NR?
5G typically refers to the fifth generation of wireless technology. NR, commonly known as New Radio, is a standard developed by the 3GPP Group (Release 15 being the first version introduced back in 2018) outlining the technology required to harness the newly-available millimeter-wave frequencies. The two frequency bands in which 5GNR operates are Frequency Range 1, i.e., Sub 6GHz band (410 MHz to 7125 MHz), and Frequency Range 2, i.e., millimeter-wave (24.25 to 52.6 GHz). Over 4G LTE, 5G NR provides better spectrum utilization, faster data rates, hardware efficiency, and improved signal processing.
From a deployment standpoint, we have Non-Standalone Mode(NSA), Dynamic Spectrum Sharing(DSS), and Standalone Mode (SA). The initial deployments of 5G NR are based on NSA standards, meaning the existing 4G LTE network will operate on the control plane, and 5G NR will be introduced to the user plane. This particular standard was introduced by 3GPP, keeping in mind the industry’s push to faster 5G services rollout while utilizing the existing 4G LTE infrastructure currently in place. On the other hand, operators are also implementing Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS) to accelerate the deployment cycle, reducing costs and improving spectrum utilization. In this standard, the same spectrum is shared between the 5G NR and 4G LTE, multiplexing over time per user demands. Lastly, we have the Standalone Mode (SA), which moves towards a complete 5G based network where both signaling and the information transfer are driven by a 5G cell.
In the future, 5G will enable new services, connect new industries and devices, empower new experiences, and much more, providing mission-critical services, enhanced mobile broadband, and various other things.
a) Enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) Applications: High device connectivity, High mobile data rates, and Mobile AR & VR applications
b) Ultra-reliable, low-latency communications (uRLLC)Applications: Autonomous vehicles, Drones, Data monitoring, Smart mfg.
c) Massive machine-type communications (mMTC)Applications: Healthcare, Industry 4.0, Logistics, Environmental monitoring, Smart farming, Smart grids
What is WiFi?
Put simply, WiFi is a technology that uses radio waves to create a wireless network through which devices like mobile phones, computers, printers, etc., connect to the internet. A wireless router is needed to establish a WiFi hotspot that people in its vicinity may use to access internet services. You’re sure to have encountered such a WiFi hotspot in houses, offices, restaurants, etc.
To get a little more technical, WiFi works by enabling a Wireless Local Area Network or WLAN that allows devices connected to it to exchange signals with the internet via a router. The frequencies of these signals are either 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz bandwidths. These frequencies are much higher than those transmitted to or by radios, mobile phones, and televisions since WiFi signals need to carry significantly higher amounts of data. The networking standards are variants of 802.11, of which there are several (802.11a, 802.11b, 801.11g, etc.).
