BSNL 5G SA, can this happen?

0

It's not that 5G SA isn't better. It's better and can help communications service providers (CSPs) deliver better business services and do more with their 5G networks. With 5G SA, the latency and power consumption of radios are also reduced.

Synopsis

  • Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) is looking to roll out local 4G networks in the country.
  • BSNL is not at all wrong in opting for the implementation of 4G networks in India.
  • 4G networks are sufficient for ordinary consumers for average data services.

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) is looking to roll out local 4G networks in the country. The state-owned telecommunications company will not roll out 5G networks in the short term. However, once the carrier has built a strong 4G presence across the country, it can use the 4G core and go with non-independent architecture (NSA) 5G networks to offer local 5G as well.

company will not roll out 5G networks in the short term

Many people are of the opinion that BSNL should have opted for 5G SA (independent architecture) and skipped 4G altogether. This is what these people don't understand.

5G SA is more expensive and still offers no significant improvements over 5G NSA
It's not that 5G SA isn't better. It's better and can help communications service providers (CSPs) deliver better business services and do more with their 5G networks. With 5G SA, the latency and power consumption of radios are also reduced. However, it is much more expensive for CSPs to implement than the cost involved in 5G NSA.

So BSNL should have spent more money (which they don't have enough for 4G to begin with) to roll out 5G SA, as 5G NSA is out of the question if the telecom company skipped the 4G roll-out.

Furthermore, until all of this happened, the telecommunications company would have to continue offering legacy network services to users.

4G is not dead yet, BSNL is right in its strategy

BSNL is not at all wrong in opting for the implementation of 4G networks in India. There is still a huge market for 4G users and it will only grow from here. Presumably, if BSNL had opted for 5G SA by skipping the 4G rollout, users would soon have started migrating to 4G networks from Jio, Airtel, and Vodafone Idea (VI).

It is worth noting that companies in the country are more likely to require 5G as a network technology. It is common thing that every time a common internet consumer do not need high-speed data usage.

4G networks are sufficient for ordinary consumers for average data services. So it is fitting that BSNL choose 4G as it will continue to be in high demand in India for years to come. If state-owned telecom companies had opted for 5G NSA, it would have taken a lot more time, more money (from taxpayers of course) and all of that would have been wasted as private telecom companies would have already captured a huge market. share with 5G NSA like they did with 4G.
