The busiest and largest airport in the nation, Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi, has been made 5G-ready, allowing travellers to utilise the most cutting-edge mobile service available once inside the terminal, provided the services are made available by the telecom service providers (TSPs). The Domestic Departure pier and International Arrival Baggage area at Terminal 3, as well as between T3 Arrivals and Multi-Level Car Parking, are said to have better signal strength, seamless connectivity, negligible latency, and faster data speed for travellers with 5G-enabled mobile phones and sim cards (MLCP).
Additional Info on the 5G Network at Delhi Airport
According to an IANS report, currently, a small number of TSPs have made their networks capable of supporting 5G service for their clients, and others are anticipated to connect in the next weeks. In addition to these, visitors to GMR Aerocity Delhi can experience the 5G network at GMR Square. GMR Square is a novel idea for an airport in India, providing simple access to Aerocity's commercial centres from public areas.
When compared to the current Wi-Fi system, a 5G network will provide passengers with data speeds that are 20 times quicker or 50 times faster when compared to the current data communication network. Quicker downloads, no buffering when streaming, flawless execution of resource-intensive apps like 3D gaming, virtual reality experiences, incredibly high-density connectivity, and exceptionally deep coverage in all locations are all possible with the 5G network.
The next generation of mobile telecommunications, or 5G, will reportedly aid in improving airport apps now in use, including passenger processing, luggage handling, and airport operations, among others. Additionally, it will allow airports to adopt cutting-edge technologies like edge computing, the Internet of Things (IoT), the development of digital twins, and artificial intelligence.
This feature of the newest mobile technology will help increase connection density and improve the passenger experience at the airport. Unparalleled data speed, low latency, and unified signal strength are available to passengers.
