Can I use 5g SIM in 4g mobile

These phones will also work on 4G LTE networks when they aren't on 5G. Your current phone won't be able to work on 5G, however. ... The 4G LTE enabled things we now take for granted include high-quality video chat, the ability to stream movies pretty much anywhere and much faster download speeds.

Ahead of speaking at India Mobile Congress on October 14th on 5G, AI & IoT: The trifecta for intelligent connectivity, Rajesh Nambiar, Chairman and President, Ciena India, shares his views on the opportunities this trifecta presents.
Today, close to 98% of India’s 1.2 billion total telecom subscriptions are for wireless services, according to TRAI. Recent investment in India’s 4G/LTE infrastructure, and the resulting wider availability of data services, has spurred massive growth in bandwidth demand in the country.
The bulk of today’s cutthroat competition for connectivity in India is around smartphones accessing 4G – with service providers and enterprises alike battling for market share. But the confluence of 5G, AI and IoT will create monetization opportunities for network operators, in the form of new services.
5G, AI and IoT are often considered to go hand-in-hand to form an intelligent connectivity trifecta, because:

  • As IoT proliferates, it will rely on the blanket geographic coverage that 5G promises.Applications dependent on ultra-low latency, such as autonomous vehicles, will only become pervasive once 5G does.AI can be used to process a large amount of network and service state data to decide suitable optimal configurations in less time, integral to operating 5G and IoT networks.To meet the dynamic needs of 5G- and AI- powered IoT, networks must be more predictive, agile, and able to rapidly scale to move massive amounts of data in real time.Ultra- Low Latency and High Reliability Requires Infrastructures that Adapt

  • To meet the dynamic needs of 5G- and AI- powered IoT, networks must be more predictive, agile, and able to rapidly scale to move massive amounts of data in real time.
    Ciena’s vision for a self-learning, self-optimizing communications infrastructure is known as the Adaptive Network™. This end-state for networks utilizes a unique combination of real-time analytics, intelligent automation, and a programmable infrastructure – to rapidly scale, self-configure, and self-optimize by constantly assessing network pressures and demands.
    With India’s exponential data growth and plans for 5G trials this year, we’re seeing operators explore scalable infrastructures that can dynamically keep up with ever-changing user needs, including:

  • Airtel selected Ciena to overhaul its legacy network and add new spectrum and fiber to expand network capacity, improve service quality, and put in place a future-ready network for 5G.Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Ciena to prepare its network for the impending evolution toward 5G. Ciena’s 5G Network Solutions add scale and network automation to support a new age of mobile connectivity in BSNL.Jio and Ciena have entered in partnership to deploy Transport SDN architecture. This will enable Jio to achieve service agility at unprecedented scale, with the highest level of quality of experience across Enterprise and FTTx. The new network framework will also give Jio more flexibility in launching new services and faster time-to-market.Together with Ciena, Monetize the Connect

  • I joined Ciena because of our opportunity and capability to make a difference in powering the connections of India’s burgeoning economy. India is poised to have the best economic growth of all countries globally. And this growth will only be possible with the right Digital India infrastructure, which will be built on innovations in connectivity. Ciena has had a presence in India for more than 15 years with offices in Gurgaon and Mumbai, and we are continuously expanding our R&D facility in India. In fact, India holds the second largest R&D site for Ciena and second largest location for Ciena in the world.

    This year’s Union Budget laid out a clear framework for modern technologies and in that, digital payments, VR, AI and IoT were highlighted. In order to realise IoT and related over the air services, a tiny yet major component on mobile devices will emerge as a harbinger of change: Embedded SIM or eSIM.
    According to Counterpoint Research, global shipments of eSIM capable devices, including vehicles, grew 63% year-on-year in 2018 to 364 million units and is estimated to reach close to two billion units in shipments by 2025. This boom has started unfolding in smartphone as well as automobile industries, especially in scale markets like China. In India, the story is still in the beginning stages.
    “However, mobile technology broadly has expanded from a simple 8K SIM to 128K SIM in less than 20 years, which is a great achievement given the low per capita income and low GDP per capita in the country,” says R Srinivasan, president and Director, India Business Region, Watchdata Technologies, the majority market share holder in native SIM card supply in India. According to him, currently, Indian market runs on Native and JAVA SIM cards, with Reliance Jio being the largest user of JAVA cards, which enables the company to leverage its 4G infrastructure and provide over the air services seamlessly.

    In the global market, things are a bit different, with players like Gemalto and G+D (Giesecke & Devrient) pushing eSIMs already. “The traditional SIM card vendors have maintained the lead when it comes to eSIM enablement. Gemalto and G+D are leading the pack due to their diverse partnerships across the value chain, GSMA certifications, and end-to-end eSIM solutions,” says Peter Richardson, research director at Counterpoint Research.
    Switching telecom carriers like switching between Wi-Fi/Bluetooth networks will not be the only applications of eSIMs. Machine to Machine (M2M) communication in industries and healthcare, IoT based services; management of city infrastructure and traffic, ticketing at toll booths, parking and metro services, connected/smart home services and connected car services/ autonomous vehicles are some of the other immediate applications. It will also mean deep penetration of banking and payments services to remote parts of the country where telecos can aim for acquiring new customers. This will also be beneficial to agriculture in rural India where agricultural equipments will see connectivity and better optimisation depending on changing climatic conditions.
    Indian telcos are already onto implementing some of these. Vodafone Idea is working with a large ecosystem of partners to ensure wider adoption of eSIM which will allow operational scalability and future proofing of IoT deployements for enterprises. “We are currently piloting and testing capabilities and will be ready to go live with the forthcoming launch cycle of new eSIM devices to service our high value customers who use these devices. As the technology matures and the device ecosystem develops, we expect the demand and adoption of eSIMs to scale up over the next 2-3 years,” said company officials.
    Embedded SIM comes at a time when networks are increasingly becoming virtual, which also explains why there has been a constant stress on partnerships among various stakeholders in the telecommunication value chain. Amdocs, a leading software service provider for telecos, which partners with Gemalto, believes that the growth of eSIM adoption equates to the growth of IoT enabled services. Hillel Geiger, head of marketing, Amdocs:Next, says, “For consumer IoT, our biggest focus is helping communication service providers overcome the challenges of implementing eSIM capabilities. On the one hand, this requires logistical and technological preparation and investment they would rather postpone. On the other hand, the train has left the station; that is, Apple’s announcement of future phones being only eSIM enabled, and primacy combined with ability to scale is of essence to succeeding in this domain.”
    Telcos will modify their network infrastrucutre for 5G and eSIM, the country as a whole has just settled on 4G and related services. Introducing something as flexible as eSIM along with 5G will mean ultra-competitive pricing and narrow margins. On the manufacturing front, it means changes to the manufacturing facilities and diversification. Srinivasan says, “Today there is considerable amount of automation on our SIM personalisation facility in Bangalore. eSIMs can bring about more automation and we will have to rethink our investments. It also involves working together with device manufacturers and telcos to arrive at sustainable costs and margins.”
    To stay relevant, Watchdata has already started conceptualising its smart Android POS devices to work with eSIM, and diversifying into data services. eSIMs also should comply with GSMA communication and security standards. For telecos and software service providers, eSIMs and IoT devices increase the responsibility of weaving new cyber security framework into the network fabric. A connected society will also bring new challenges for the government in terms of data protection and custody.

    1)JIO 5G - Will A Huawei-Jio Tie Up Boost India’s 5G Ecosystem?

    Chinese telecom giant Huawei raised concerns about investing in India’s telecom infrastructure ahead of the government’s plans to begin trials for 5G technology recently. The company had said that any talk of investments in the country are moot until there’s clarity about the extent of its participation in the country’s plans for 5G.
    And now after having received an approval from the department of telecommunications for the 5G demo spectrum at India, but there’s still no certainty about whether it will overcome pressure from the US and other countries to participate in India’s 5G infrastructure. It has faced restrictions from the US and Australia due to its trouble over network security concerns due to Huawei’s close ties to China and other geopolitical issues. This has invariably put India in a difficult spot as well.
    But if allowed, Huawei is looking for strategic collaborations with the likes of Reliance Jio to boost India’s 5G ecosystem.
    According to a Business Standard interview with Huawei India CEO Jay Chen, the company is optimistic about working with India for 5G. Chen said, “I believe that Huawei will be welcomed by the Indian industry, government, and customers.”
    While Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea are its customers, Reliance Jio is not, but Chen is optimistic about a tie-up with the company and forging a strong partnership with Jio. Chen added that Huawei can find opportunities to partner with Jio and grow.
    “India is a densely populated market and also a developing one. It has the potential to become the world’s second-biggest economy. That provides us with a lot of opportunities in India,” said Chen.
    The company known for its networking prowess is working on specific use-cases to help the Indian telecom industry to thrive. The CEO stressed his confidence in Huawei’s role in India, as it has played a pivotal role in building India’s 4G network. He also stated that their existing customers could deploy 5G technology in their existing 4G networks.
    On the other hand, Jio in partnership with Samsung built what it calls the world’s largest 4G LTE network, which supports over 340 Mn subscribers, as of August 2019.
    Jio has been working closely with key partners such as Samsung, where it ensures to help India leapfrog traditional technologies by existing 4G infrastructure and leverage the end-to-end fibre, 5G, and IoT ecosystem towards a digital infrastructure platform. “This digital platform will deliver on the aspirations of all Indians, our businesses, and the emerging digital freedom for India,” said Mathew Oommen, president of Jio.
    Samsung claimed that its LTE networks are well positioned to be transitioned towards a 5G era with telecom partners such as Jio, in a recent report.
    5G networks are expected to be launched in India by 2020, however, there’s still no confirmation from any of the operators and neither has the government set a date for the spectrum auction.
    It is predicted that the 5G technology will create a cumulative economic impact of $1 Tn in India by 2035. Swedish multinational networking and telecommunications company Ericsson had estimated that 5G enabled digitalisation revenue potential in India will be above $27 Bn by 2026. GSMA Intelligence had projected that 5G will be adopted by about 70 Mn users in India by 2025.

    VODAFONE 5G - Vodafone Idea's 4G networks will now run on 5G technology and Huawei's AI

  • Huawei is using artificial intelligence (AI) to optimise Vodafone Idea's 4G network.
  • Huawei's solution uses of Vodafone Idea's 5G-ready Massive MIMO technology to leverage 4G connectivity.
  • The AI solution allows the 4G network to have greater capacity and be more efficient.
  • The India Mobile Congress 2019 (IMC) is largely focused on 5G connectivity and its use cases. But on the sidelines — as telecommunication companies await the 5G spectrum auction — vendors are helping them improve the existing 4G network. Huawei, the Chinese tech giant, is helping Vodafone Idea optimise its 4G network using artificial intelligence (AI). But, it's doing it on 5G technology.
    Vodafone Idea's Massive MIMO technology is 5G ready and is the third largest deployment in the world so far. The company claims that this is the first time that an AI-based solution has been used to optimise multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO) technology — an essential element of standard 4G networks.
    "The deployment solution will enable Vodafone Idea to enhance their pre-5G Massive MIMO network," stated Jay Chen, CEO of Huawei India.
    What is MIMO? MIMO multiplies the capacity of a radio link by letting antennas receive signals from multiple pathways. By using AI, Huawei can increase the capacity of Vodafone Idea's 4G network by making it more efficient. "Adding AI capabilities to India's largest deployment of Massive MIMO for enhancing user experience is a further testament of our commitment to create a future-proof network for the digital era," stated Vishant Vora, the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Vodafone Idea.
    Huawei's random forest algorithm collects and analyses the data to model and predict how the 4G network can be optimised.
    Since Massive MIMO is meant for 5G, it's able to use the 5G technology to leverage 4G connectivity. Huawei's fate in India is uncertain with the Department of Telecommunication asserting that the company's participation in IMC 2019 doesn't mean that it will be allowed in the 5G trials.
    But Huawei is pushing forward with demos of use cases of its 5G technology, which include 5G airports, smart city management, and AI powered surveillance, at the event.

    Huawei can work on German 5G networks: Here's why critics say that's a very bad idea

    Newly released draft rules for network security in Germany, which indicate that the German government is prepared to accept Huawei as a supplier for the country's 5G networks, are causing major controversy.
    Local politicians are calling on parliament to take back control of the vetting process and overturn the new rules, while experts believe the rules could deepen technological divisions between European member states and worsen an increasingly cool trans-Atlantic relationship.
    "A question of such strategic meaning should not be being decided at the administrative level," complained Norbert Röttgen, the chairman of the parliamentary committee on foreign affairs and a member of Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats. 
    SEE: IT pro's guide to the evolution and impact of 5G technology (free PDF)
    To protect Germany's critical infrastructure, he has suggested that parliament should debate measures that go beyond these new draft rules.
    The rules – the so-called 'security catalog' – were released on Tuesday by two agencies, the Federal Office for Information Security and the Federal Network Agency and will now undergo a short consultative process. They could be in effect by the end of the year or early next year.
    "The big question right now is whether we will stick with this process, where critical decisions on national security and industrial policy are being outsourced to two minor [German government] agencies," Thorsten Benner, director of the Berlin-based thinktank, the Global Public Policy Institute, told ZDNet. 


    Benner earlier described the draft as a "catastrophic failure" and believes that nothing much will change during the consultative process if parliament doesn't step in.  
    The publication of the security catalog confirmed leaks from a day earlier that Chinese network supplier, Huawei, would not be excluded from taking part in the construction of Germany's next generation of network technology.
    Although they have never been definitively confirmed and Huawei denies them, there are suspicions that the telecommunications giant is too close to the Chinese government.
    This much-discussed relationship has led to concerns that if Huawei plays a key part in establishing essential aspects in a national network, then sensitive information could end up being passed to the Chinese government, or critical communications infrastructure could potentially be sabotaged during international conflicts.
    After warnings from the US that Germany's ongoing use of Huawei technology would endanger trans-Atlantic information sharing, observers had expected a clause in the new security catalog to effectively ban the Chinese company from the country's 5G infrastructure.
    But, as German business newspaper Handelsblatt reported earlier this week after seeing a leaked version of the draft rules, the clause was removed, apparently thanks to intervention from chancellor Angela Merkel's office. 


    According to insiders, the German chancellor herself defended the removal of the clause on Tuesday during a private meeting of her own party. The argument is that, instead of simply excluding Huawei, there should be stricter standards for all potential providers.
    "The primary motive for chancellor Merkel to push for opening the door to Huawei is fear of retribution, that they [the Chinese] would retaliate against German tech providers in China," Benner says. "Major German companies – VW, Siemens, BMW – are very dependent on the Chinese market. I think that's the concern in the chancellery."
    The draft rules now say any company taking part in the construction of Germany's 5G networks will only have to sign a contract guaranteeing they won't take part in espionage or build so-called back doors into their software.


    "A violation of the self-declaration by manufacturers or providers could lead to considerable security breaches," the catalog's writers concede.
    This contract is simply a more elaborate version of a no-spy clause that already existed for public procurement of some IT systems, Jan-Peter Kleinhans, a 5G networks expert at the thinktank, Stiftung für Neue Verwantwortung, or the Foundation for New Responsibility, pointed out.
    "There is no language on sanctions or repercussions in the security catalog, or anything about how [violations] would be evaluated or monitored. It's purely a 'please trust me' statement from the vendor," he says.


    The draft rules also say networks must avoid a "monoculture" by any one company. In certain vital parts of network infrastructure, products from at least two different companies must be used. And products from any single company may only make up a maximum of two-thirds of the infrastructure.
    In many ways, the new rules are appropriate, Kleinhans told ZDNet. From an IT security perspective, there are two main kinds of threats, he explained: attackers who exploit software vulnerabilities and attackers who exploit legitimate access.
    "Out in the field, the bigger issue is software vulnerability because of the complexity of networks," Kleinhans says.
    A smaller risk is presented by the vendor of equipment, who has access to the equipment to, say, repair it or update firmware. But few network operators keep a careful eye on vendors as they do this, he cautioned.


    "On the whole, this [the new security catalog] is politically agnostic and offers the right answer to technological challenges brought about by software vulnerability," Kleinhans argued. "But it does not address the geopolitical aspects at all."
    Kleinhans suspects that the decision was deliberately pushed onto the smaller and mostly technocratic government agencies so that the German government could avoid the political ramifications of banning major Chinese companies from its 5G networks.
    Benner believes that bureaucrats at the agencies may even have welcomed being asked to make this decision because, if the security catalog is approved, they will get more funding and gain in importance.


    For all Germany's talk of the importance of European digital sovereignty and European tech champions, allowing Huawei and ZTE access could also disadvantage their main competitors, the Finnish and Swedish companies, Nokia and Ericsson.
    A spokesperson from Deutsche Telekom told ZDNet that it currently has a multi-vendor strategy and are using Ericsson, Nokia, Cisco and Huawei.
    "Given the ongoing expert discussion, Telekom is currently reappraising its procurement strategy," the spokesperson said. "There have been no firm decisions made which manufacturers we will use to build the 5G network."

    NEW SIM 5G

    The Stiftung für Neue Verwantwortung's Kleinhans says there has been so much consolidation in the telco sector, that there are only four vendors left worldwide.
    SEE: Europe warns 5G will increase attack paths for state actors
    There are multiple reasons for this, he says, including bad management and bad luck. But the Chinese success is also due to state subsidies and the kind of government support that other international companies haven't had.
    "And in a few years, there's a real chance we won't have Nokia and Ericsson anymore," he warns.
    Benner is blunter: "In a situation where, for once, Europe has the right technology – in the form of Nokia and Ericsson – Germany decides to open the door to high-risk providers instead. It's absurd." 
    This move not only undermines European digital sovereignty, it also endangers European unity on the subject, Benner continues. Approaches toward "high-risk providers" in other countries, such as the UK, France and Poland, already differ markedly from Germany's, Benner continues. 
    A European Commission cybersecurity risk assessment on this subject came out last week – Benner calls it "bad timing for Germany" – and it too emphasized the risk of too much reliance on single suppliers and "threat actors" from non-EU states.
    "It's also important to understand this is not just a hobby horse for the Trump administration," Benner says of the trans-Atlantic differences on this subject. "Concerns about critical infrastructure are shared by key Republicans and Democrats in the US, too."

    Huawei deploys India's first AI based pre-5G tech on Vodafone Idea network

    Chinese telecom gear maker Huawei on Monday said it has deployed India's first artificial intelligence (AI) based pre-5G technology on Vodafone Idea network.
    The telecom gear maker claimed that the deployment of AI-based massive MIMO (multiple-input and multiple-output) network will enhance user experience by three-fold within the same set of spectrum.


    "We are consistently deploying futuristic, next generation technologies to enhance the capacity and efficiency of our network. Adding AI capabilities to India's largest deployment of massive MIMO for enhancing user experience is a further testament of our commitment to create a future-proof network for the digital era," Vodafone Idea Ltd Chief Technology Officer Vishant Vora said in a statement.
    Massive MIMO leverages 5G technologies in 4G network, it added.
    "We are delighted to partner with Vodafone Idea Limited in making them ready for the 5G-led future. The deployed solution will enable Vodafone Idea to enhance their pre-5G massive MIMO network," Huawei India CEO Jay Chen said.
