High investment and Technological & Infrastructure challenges in the implementation of 5G network
5G technology is expected to be operated in different frequency ranges, which include low frequencies (f < 1Ghz), high frequencies (1GHz < f < 6 GHz), and very high frequencies (above 6GHz). The millimeter wave spectrum, also known as frequencies above 6 GHz are required to distinguish the 5G network from 4G. According to the Regulatory Authority for Electronic Communications and Posts, it is not be possible for 5G to run entirely on millimeter wave frequencies as the propagation qualities of these bands make it difficult to achieve widespread coverage, particularly in more sparsely populated areas. Moreover, these bands are not technologically advanced when it comes to delivering consumer market communication services. Also, the requirement of widespread deployment of low-power base stations (small cells) is expected to require huge capital investment. According to the Regulatory Authority for Electronic Communications and Posts, at least 10 small cells per macro base station in urban area is required to cater to the demand and enable the introduction of 5G. Therefore, these technological and infrastructure challenges in the implementation of 5G network restrict the production of 5G chipsets by some extent.
