First Aspirational District to Implement 5G Technology

Recently Vidisha district of Madhya Pradesh became the first district in India to conduct on-ground deployment of advanced 5G use cases introduced by Aspirational District startup.

Salient Features of the Initiative:

  • It is a joint initiative of Vidisha District Administration and Telecom Development Center (C-DOT), Department of Telecom (DoT) under the guidance of Additional Secretary (Telecom) and Administrator Universal Service Obligation Fund (USOF).
  • 5G will be deployed in Community and District Health Centers, Model Schools, Agriculture and Dairy Farmers and Skill Development Centers for a period of 1 year and can be extended later as per requirement.
  • These digital solutions will be powered by Bharatnet Broadband to provide seamless services to the user communities of Vidisha.

Aspirational District Programme:

  • It was launched in the year 2018 with an aim to develop districts that have shown relatively little progress in key social sectors.
  • Aspirational districts are those districts in India that are affected by poor socio-economic indicators.
  • It includes 112 districts across the country.
  • At the Government of India level, the program is administered by NITI Aayog. Apart from this, several ministries are contributing in the implementation of the plan for the progress of the districts.

5G Technology:

  • 5G network is the 5th generation mobile network. It is the latest global wireless standard after 1G, 2G, 3G and 4G networks.
  • 5G operates in 3 bands (low, mid and high frequency spectrum), all of which have their own uses and limitations.
  • This enables a new type of network that is designed to link virtually everything together, including machines, objects, and devices.
