COAI Talks about Private Networks, 5G, 6G and More

5G launches are expected to take place in early October 2022. Things seem to be ready for private telcos, and with 5G, Indian consumers will be able to get very fast mobile download and upload speeds along with lower-cost networks. latency. However, this is not all when we talk about 5G. SP Kochhar, Director General of the Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI), spoke to TelecomTalk about the challenges telecom operators will face as they roll out 5G and beyond. Watch the video below to hear the full conversation. (Pro tip: listen to the conversation at 1.5x or 2x speed on YouTube or Spotify to save yourself a lot of time.)

COAI’s Opinion on Administrative Assignment of Spectrum for Private LTE or 5G Networks Kochhar said: “COAI’s opinion on the matter is that there should be no administrative assignment of spectrum. It should be taken through auctions.” The reason Kochhar said is that when spectrum is taken to offer or provide similar services, regardless of the geography being covered, it should be given in the same way that it is given to telcos. In addition, the same licensing rules that apply to telecommunications players must apply.

Kochhar also spoke about the need for more fiberization in India. He said that currently about 35% of the towers are fibered in India. For 5G, the towers must be fiberized, since it will be a crucial thing.

in 6G

“When we switched from 4G to 5G, it was a switch from one technology to another. But with 3G to 4G, it was an upgrade, not a switch in technology. Similarly, 5G to 6G would be a switch between technologies.” Kohhar said.

“It’s going to be the same set of technology and so the use cases that come up for 5G will help tremendously in 6G. But 6G adoption would be much faster than 5G because it’s the same technology, and as the mindset and technology it would have been installed by the time 6G comes along. India realized this, and the government has already started working on 6G. We are at an advanced stage of developing standards, use cases and various things. There are about 8 or 9 sub- committees that have been formed under a working group under the DoT that are looking at these issues.”

Kochhar also said that for 6G deployments, India would be a leader globally. We talk a lot more about other things. To hear the full conversation, watch the video above.
