India has obtained more than 127 international patents for 6G technology, according to an announcement made by Union Minister for Communications Ashwini Vaishnaw on Wednesday. He also emphasised the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s claim that the increased demand for domestically produced telecommunications equipment in other nations is a result of India’s ability to gain confidence and conduct business on a large scale.
Vaishnaw claims that the Prime Minister has set a goal for his ministry to lead the world in 6G technology development and to be at the forefront of 5G technology. “Basis this target is given, the country has worked – the academia, the innovators, entrepreneurs — all have worked together. I must also share with you that by now 127 patents for 6G technology have been obtained by Indians,” Vaishnaw told reporters after addressing Communication Ministers’ Conclave.
Earlier in the conference, the prime minister shared the government’s 6G technology vision statement.
According to the Department of Telecom’s vision document, 6G technology is anticipated to offer ultra-low latency and speeds up to 1 terabit per second, which is 1,000 times faster than the top speed of 5G, while 5G technology is anticipated to offer speeds ranging from 40 to 1,100 Mbps.
Vaishnaw further offered to extend the deeply discounted 5G testing services to all participating neighbouring nations. “I request our secretary to extend the highly discounted 5g testing services to all the countries present. We’ll all grow together. We’ll all make sure that our region contributes to the world,” he said.
At the conclave were representatives from Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. Vaishnaw emphasised India’s strong ecosystems for academic, research, and engineering talent.
“We are rewriting our regulations for the digital economy. Our focus is to make sure that the horizontals (matters that cut across sectors) are technology agnostic. They are dynamic. They are capable of changing with the changing technologies,” Vaishnaw said.
The minister asserts that India’s developing digital economy necessitates a different regulatory strategy than traditional economies. He also emphasised that because data privacy and telecom are issues that affect many different industries, the government has chosen to create regulations that are technology-neutral.
The minister said that rather than being prescriptive, upcoming bills like the Digital Personal Data Protection Bill and the new Telecommunications Bill will be based on principles. The minister also opened the India Telecom exhibition, where about 20 businesses with local manufacturing capabilities are showcasing their solutions. He did this alongside Minister of State for Communications Devusinh Chauhan.
