Indian population provides vast market, opines Shanghai-headquartered Quectel

As India is all set to launch the 5G services in the coming weeks, the global IoT solutions provider company Quectel Wireless Solutions has extended its support to this roll-out. It announced that its technologies and services are ready to support the introduction of 5G devices to the Indian market.

It is noteworthy that 13 cities, including Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Chennai, Delhi, Gandhinagar, Gurugram, Hyderabad, Jamnagar, Kolkata, Lucknow, Mumbai and Pune will initially get the services and market players may launch their respective 5G services later this month.

5G: A Major Leap

Anticipating “dramatic changes” with the 5G arrival, the Vice President of APAC at Quectel, Michael Wallon said, “We see applications in direct-to-home services, medical services, entertainment, the automotive sector and several industries that will achieve clear gains for transferring huge volumes of data with lower latencies.” He further added, “Being able to use 5G to access high-speed internet connectivity in remote places, such as rural areas where the reach of fibre is restricted or limited, means new applications will be brought to life by 5G. We foresee the usage of drones in applications for agriculture, security and for faster deliveries.”

After experiencing the 5G roll-out in the West and some Asian countries, Quectel claims to have an upper hand in the know-how and the technical requirements for 5G IoT device design. As India is a crucial market to tap, Quectel engages with different local and global distributors as well.

 

Population Matters

Looking at the glass half-full, Wallon takes the Indian population density as an opportunity for the consumer and IoT markets as “it creates a very large market to address with IoT products and services”. Adding further, he said, “Being able to serve people with massive IoT solutions that truly improve quality of life and build a smarter world is a core Quectel target and one that has seen significant uptake over the last five years. We’re looking forward to bringing this experience to India.”

Quectel’s 5G modules portfolio includes the RM510Q-GL, the RM50xQ and the RG50xQ – all based on Qualcomm’s chipsets. Supporting both standalone and non-standalone 5G, these modules offer 3G and 4G fallback with optional integrated SIM (iSIM) capability.
