According to video posted by one of Jio employees Jio has started Airfiber trial plans for its employees. Where an employee can Jio 5G airfiber in 1000₹ security + ₹1000 installation charge while opting for a new connection.
Here a rooftop airfiber antenna will be installed which can be shared among 6 different people if living in a apartment building while a personal router is installed inside the customers premises.
For normal people booking will start from 19th of Sept 2023. Plans are not revealed yet even to employees as they being given it under trial offer.
Here one thing to note is if the customer surrender the connection then he will get only ₹1000 back which is the security deposit component of initial charge. Airtel airfiber on other hand is not charging any installation charge, only security deposit+advance rental.
5G, or fifth-generation wireless technology, is the latest standard for mobile and wireless communication. It represents a significant advancement over its predecessor, 4G (LTE), in terms of speed, capacity, and capabilities. Here are some key features and aspects of 5G:
- Faster Speeds: 5G offers significantly faster data speeds compared to 4G. It can provide download speeds of up to 20 Gbps, which is about 20 times faster than 4G.
- Low Latency: 5G networks have extremely low latency, often in the millisecond range. This low latency is crucial for applications that require real-time communication, such as online gaming, autonomous vehicles, and remote surgery.
- Increased Capacity: 5G networks have the ability to handle a much larger number of devices simultaneously. This is essential for the growing number of IoT (Internet of Things) devices and smart city applications.
- Improved Connectivity: 5G networks use higher-frequency radio waves, including millimeter waves (mmWave), to transmit data. These higher frequencies allow for more data to be transmitted, but they have shorter range and are more easily blocked by obstacles. To overcome this, 5G networks use a dense network of small cell towers, which provides better connectivity in urban areas.
- Network Slicing: 5G allows for network slicing, which means that the same physical network can be divided into multiple virtual networks to serve different purposes. This enables customization of network services for specific applications, such as industrial automation, healthcare, or entertainment.
- Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB): One of the primary use cases for 5G is to provide faster and more reliable internet access to mobile devices. This will enable high-definition streaming, virtual reality experiences, and other data-intensive applications on smartphones and tablets.
- Ultra-Reliable Low Latency Communication (URLLC): 5G also caters to applications that require ultra-reliable and low-latency communication, such as autonomous vehicles and remote surgery. These applications demand near-instantaneous data transfer with high reliability.
- Massive Machine Type Communication (mMTC): 5G is designed to support a vast number of IoT devices, from smart home appliances to sensors in industrial settings. mMTC capabilities enable efficient and widespread connectivity for these devices.
- Security: 5G networks incorporate improved security features to protect against various threats, including encryption enhancements and better authentication mechanisms.
- Global Deployment: 5G is being rolled out worldwide, with many countries and mobile network operators investing in infrastructure to support this technology.
