VI and Ericsson partner to showcase the power of 5G to transform healthcare in India 


Vi’s 5G trial network in Pune, which uses Ericsson Radios and Ericsson Dual Mode Core based on cloud-native technology and includes 5G SA, 5G NSA, and LTE packet vital services, is based on government-allocated 3.5 GHz mid-band and 26 GHz mmWave bands. A doctor in an urban setting can actually do an ultrasound scan on a patient in a remote rural location thanks to 5G’s high data speed, low latency, and reliability. Vi is utilizing Ericsson’s 5G infrastructure to demonstrate the power of 5G in providing healthcare to distant areas of the country.

“Vi has developed a 5G ready network which builds on India’s fastest Vi GIGAnet network verified by Ookla. With our 5G trials now, we are leveraging the power of 5G to provide healthcare access to remote parts of the country, amongst a range of other use cases for enterprises and consumers. Speed and latency are critical to 5G services, and therefore, our focus has been to achieve throughputs which can effectively enable relevant 5G use cases for the Digital India of tomorrow.”

States Jagbir Singh, CTO, Vi,

Vi and Ericsson also exhibited the enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) and fixed wireless access (FWA) applications with 5G as part of the ongoing demonstrations. “Enhanced mobile broadband and Fixed Wireless Access are expected to be the early use-cases for 5G in India. Over time, we expect more enterprise-related use cases to come up leveraging the benefits of 5G in sectors like healthcare, manufacturing, education, etc. The flexible Dual Mode Core set by Ericsson with Vi in Pune is helping enterprises leverage the network to deploy use cases like Remote video monitoring, Telemedicine, Digital twin, AR/VR, etc. During the ongoing trials.”

states Amarjeet Singh, Vice President, Ericsson. 

The digital revolution of Enterprises would be hastened with the deployment of 5G. 5G opens up new revenue streams for service providers who aren’t just focused on users. According to Ericsson’s 5G Business Compass research, the entire 5G-enabled B2B opportunity for Indian operators will be $17 billion USD by 2030, spanning ten industries. Healthcare, manufacturing, energy and utilities, automotive, and public safety are among the industries that are projected to use 5G to digitalize.
