Jun 20: An Indian 5G testbed is to be established at the Military College of Telecommunication Engineering (MCTE), Mhow in collaboration with the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IIT-M). A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to facilitate the same was signed between MCTE & IIT-M at a function in Chennai today. The test bed will facilitate the Indian Army to utilize the 5G technology for its operational use, especially along its borders.
The MoU signed will give an impetus to the induction of systems, devices & equipment using niche technology and also the use of AI-based algorithms for enhancing the capabilities of our Armed Forces. It will also promote collaborative and cooperative research and facilitate the exchange of ideas for the development of new technologies. It will encourage students, faculties, and scientists to research in the area of 5G communications and the development of military applications. The joint partnership between MCTE and IIT-Madras aims to accelerate the Indian Army’s indigenization efforts for achieving ‘Atmanirbharta’ in the fields of communications and provide a testing facility for Tri-Service and thus act as a catalyst for Research and Development. Under the ambit of the MoU, IIT Madras will provide consultancy, duly supported by research for feasibility studies and prototype development on 5 G-enabled future communications.
