BENGALURU: India stands a chance to get 5G technology with the rest of the world as the country enters an era of Internet of Things (IoT), telecom secretary J S Deepak said here today.

“…We got 2G 25 years after the rest of the world, at least after the developed world. We got 3G more than a decade after it became ubiquitous in US, Europe. 4G may be, five years after its global launch. In 5G, we have the chance of being there with the rest of the world,” Deepak said.

He added that the probable simultaneous launch of 5G in India, along with the rest of the world, could be from bridging the gap that had prevailed and the country might as well take a step forward and acquire a leadership position in certain areas as it enters into an era of Internet of Things with connected devices and machines.

Deepak was speaking after inaugurating the first edition of ‘IoT India Congress’ that aims to bring together key stakeholders across the value chain and verticals to collaborate.

In a recorded video address to the Congress, union minister for electronics and IT, Ravi Shankar Prasad said, IoT is important because connected devices are going to become the order of the day.
