5G Readiness

Airtel has been deploying leading edge technologies and is the first operator in India to provide pre 5G experience by deploying 4CC CA & LAA technology in the network. Airtel has also showcased 5G capabilities during Indian Mobile Congress 2018, with peak user throughput of 1.5 Gbps throughput using commercial grade CPEs and 3 Gbps using prototype device. Airtel also demonstrated 5G use-cases such as 3D hologram, AR/VR based online gaming & ultra-high definition video streaming.
Radio network & packet core deployed by Airtel across India is hardware ready to support 5G-NSA architecture.

Pushing the limits

To aid the problem of telecom connectivity in the village of Hayuliang in Anjaw district, Arunachal Pradesh, Airtel took up the challenge of setting up a tower base. The town, which is 308 kms away from the capital city of Itanagar, consists of several army base camps as it is located on the borders of China and Myanmar. Due to absence of any other operator, we came forward to serve the needs of the army and 5K rural population in the area.However, being an air site many challenges were faced while setting-up the tower base. The process was delayed due to presence of 60-80% hard rocks and heavy and continuous rain fall,landslides and road blockage leading to collapse of civil structure. Moreover, the materials had to be carried manually to site.

Network connectivity remains fundamental to economic growth of any region today, and we took up the challenge, successfully completing the project. In just two days of launch, we saw a strong traffic statistics. Going forward, we will continue to set-up new tower base and spread connectivity to the last mile.
