5G: The Catalyst for India's Digital Revolution

Sujith Vasudevan, Managing Editor

Our country is at the cusp of a digital revolution powered by increasing broadband connectivity and internet penetration. India, a country with so much potential & resources, has missed out on such decisive opportunities in the past – like the way we played the role of a mere supplier of raw material for the British industries during the first Industrial Revolution, which in truth shaped up the GDP per capita of several western economies. But this time,

India has a real opportunity to take a full swing at this novel revolution in the making.

With the most anticipated 5G rollout in the country, India Inc. is likely to generate new avenues of growth in the digital realm, bolster industrial productivity, and bring a tangible change to the socioeconomic fabric of the country. The words of Mukesh Ambani while elucidating Jio’s 5G plans substantiate this fact. “Jio will pioneer the 5G Revolution in India in the second half of 2021. It will be powered by indigenous-developed network, hardware and technology components. Jio's 5G service will be a testimony to your inspiring vision of Aatmanirbhar Bharat,” Ambani said while speaking at the India Mobile Congress.

The rollout itself will present an abundance of opportunity, not to mention the 10 Gbps speed of 5G networks that will revolutionize user experience and less than one millisecond latency that will transform the opportunities involving IoT and Edge Computing. This is exactly why India is believed to be a digital economy that has the potential to reach $1 trillion by the year 2025. This issue of ‘10 Most Recommended Networking & Hardware IT Solutions Providers – 2021’ is all about the companies that take part in this novel revolution and contribute in their own way. Let’s dig into the underlying stories of a few of them.
