5G Network Can Further Enrich Existing Telecommunication Services

JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM - The presence of 5G network will be part of digital history in Indonesia in 2021, making Indonesia a country in the Southeast Asia region that also implements the latest network after the Philippines, Thailand and Singapore.
Ronni Nurmal, Head of Network Solution at Ericsson Indonesia, explained that if 5G is implemented and dominates the network in Indonesia, more services will be available and will be able to provide a richer experience for users.
These include simple things ranging from 4K video quality to livestreaming services with holographic capabilities.
"All digital services that exist today with the dominating implementation of 5G will of course continue to evolve. The development will always include enhanced digital services," Ronni said at the virtual Ericsson Mobility Report, on Wednesday (12/15/2021).
Ronni said that in the current 4G era, the public is used to viewing shows or information on the screen without being constrained or waiting.
If 5G has dominated cellular network services, not only will the data speed increase, but the quality of service will also increase.
Usually in 4G services the video quality that is usually obtained is HD, but with standard 5G, the resolution can increase to 4K and even 8K.
Another example is the quality of livestreaming via video call or video conferencing services.
Nowadays people are used to making online video calls because activities during the pandemic have been shifted to the digital space.
“Livestreaming will make it possible to support holographic services with 5G. So we not only feel talking to family or co-workers but also we can clearly see the gestures of the other person we are talking to. It certainly provides a richer and wider experience,” said Ronni.
Currently, Indonesia is just entering the early stages of implementing 5G network, and is still focusing on building a 4G network, especially in underdeveloped, frontier, and outermost areas.
There is only one agglomeration area and eight big cities that offer 5G services in Indonesia, namely Greater Jakarta, Bandung, Batam, Balikpapan, Makassar, Surakarta, Surabaya, Denpasar, and Medan.
That is why qualified services to take advantage of the 5G network are not yet felt.
However, Ericsson predicts that Indonesia will grow rapidly not only in terms of the productivity of community activities, but also from industry after 5G can be implemented nationally.
The implementation of 5G nationally is currently being made ready by preparing the appropriate frequency band so that the plan can be realized, as reported by Antara.
