Singapore to start 5G roll-out by 2020: Iswaran

 

SINGAPORE plans to start rolling out fifth-generation mobile network technology, or 5G, by 2020.

Minister for Communications and Information S Iswaran confirmed the market's timeframe expectations on Monday, in a move that he said was "to maintain Singapore's competitive edge in connectivity".

The Info-communications Media Development Authority (IMDA) "will launch a public consultation shortly" on regulatory framework and policy issues such as spectrum allocation, Mr Iswaran added.

He was speaking at the Committee of Supply debate in Parliament, in a reply to a question from MP Ong Teng Koon (Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC) on the Republic's digital infrastructure capabilities.

"The digital economy - streaming services, e-commerce and cloud computing - is built on the assumption of uninterrupted access to the Internet," Mr Ong had said.

"Loss of connectivity can have potentially catastrophic business consequences ... What are our plans to ensure that our digital infrastructure is able to support our growing digital economy?"

Mr Iswaran told the House in reply that "we aim to ensure that we have future-ready and globally competitive digital infrastructure, which is the bedrock of our digital economy".

The minister noted that 5G is expected to be as much as 100 times faster than the present 4G systems, with up to 25 times lower latency or lag time, and as many as one million devices supported within one square kilometre - that is, 1,000 times denser than is now possible.

"5G has the potential to fundamentally transform our businesses and the way they operate," said Mr Iswaran, pointing to "its capacity to handle many high-demand applications simultaneously".

These could include network connectivity for self-driving vehicles, industrial automation and the Internet of Things, and nationwide sensor networks, he observed.

Singapore's three incumbent network operators - Singtel, StarHub and M1 - have all kicked off 5G trials with industry partners, including a 5G pilot network in the one-north district, by Singtel and Ericsson.

Meanwhile, the IMDA has been waiving the frequency fees associated with 5G trials since 2017.

What is 5G and what will it mean for you?

 

 

 

Will I need a new phone?

Yes, I'm afraid so. But when 4G was introduced in 2009/10, compatible smart phones came onto the market before the infrastructure had been rolled out fully, leading to some frustration amongst consumers who felt they were paying more in subscriptions for a patchy service. 

 

This time, says Ian Fogg, phone makers are unlikely to make the same mistake, launching 5G handsets only when the new networks are ready, probably towards the end of 2019. These next generation phones will be able to switch seamlessly between 4G and 5G networks for a more stable service.

First 5G networks to be operated by at least 2 winning telcos from next year: IMDA

 

 

Asked if Huawei Technologies will be blocked from Singapore's 5G network, IMDA said: "Singapore encourages vendor diversity in our telecommunication systems to mitigate risks from dependency on any one vendor."

 

 

It added: "Operators should ensure that the performance and reliability of equipment purchased from vendors meet their commercial operational needs and regulatory requirements, including those pertaining to quality of service, resilience and security."

 

The United States has been trying to stop its allies from using 5G mobile systems supplied by Huawei for fear that the China government could use its equipment for espionage.

Think can wait for 2 more years before buying 5G phones.... All those 4G cell towers need to be upgraded to 5G...

Why pay through the nose for 5G speed when u can only enjoy the speed in limited areas?

5G infrastructure is different in nature, more likely there will be new towers, indoor transmitters and base points built everywhere. Compared to 4G, 5G encompasses a wider range of technologies and includes millimeter wave transmission which is superfast but easily attenuated.

 

So 5G will likely include not only upgrading of existing towers but a lot of new small base points.

Singtel urges IMDA to issue 5G network licences for free

 

 

 

 

In Singapore, there are no immediate applications for the consumer sector and he thinks 5G technologies will largely be used in the business-to-business sector, although very few commercial applications of the technology exist currently and most businesses are still experimenting and trying out the services.

I also want free 5G from Singtel ...  :D

Do not be too happy and interpret wrongly, 5G licenses for free does not mean consumer get free 5G services lah. Just an incentive from the government to encourage awarded telcos to offer better services. You still have to pay haha.

So the new GPS ERP system will use both GPS and 5G tech too?

We see many transponder like stuff on lampposts.

Are these meant for 5G testing?
