Bengaluru-based Tejas Networks and Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad have come together to work on 5G Cloud Radio Access Network. It’s one of its kind of examples of industry-academia collaboration for a time bound and futuristic research work.
According to the project lead Dr. Kiran Kuchi of IIT-H, the first field demonstration of this two years long research work will take place in next two months. It’s the first time when CRAN will be demonstrated in India. On the global level, only Germany has demonstrated such technology in the past, but this project is way beyond that. With the execution of 5G CRAN project, India will stand tall among global technology leaders like one of the first countries to come up with a futuristic technology solution.
As reported by Times of India, according to Sanjay Nayak, CEO-Tejas Network, “India is one of the very few countries that can vote for global 5G standardization framework and this project will help the nation to become a leading nation in tech field.” With the help of 5G CRAN project, radio signals can be centralized, which will further lead to an efficient communication system with zero interference from other devices.
Tejas Networks has provided the required hardware to IIT-H team, which will look after the development procedure. 5G CRAN will support IoT technology to offer world-class services and reduce call drops on real time basis.
