“We would like to unleash the creativity and innovation of the Indian industry, academia and entrepreneurs to fully leverage and make 5G a reality in India,” said Börje Ekholm, President and CEO, Ericsson.

Currently, the centre is working on the use of 5G beamforming and beam-tracking technologies within 3.5GHz frequencies, offering the enhancement of spectral efficiency and capacity expansion.

According to Ericsson itself, the Indian economy stands to benefit from a further $27.3bn in revenue by 2026, largely driven by the technologies potential across the energy, manufacturing, utilities, public safety and healthcare sectors.

The 5G Center of Excellence supports the Government’s plans to foster a robust and vibrant 5G ecosystem in India,” said India’s Minister of State for Communications and Minister of State for Railways, Shri Manoj Sinha. “We need the entire eco system to work together to make 5G a reality in India over the next 2-3 years.”
