5G: Nigerians should expect smart cities, self-driving car facilities, says NCC

Published

on

The Nigerian Communications Commission says Nigerians should expect gigabytes per second for smart cities, self-driving cars, robust telemedicine, and others with the deployment of the fifth-generation technology in Nigeria.

The Executive Vice Chairman of the commission, Prof. Umar Danbatta, hinted this while responding to questions during a webinar, titled: “Unlocking 5G potential in Africa”, held on StreamYard, on Monday.

This was contained in a press statement titled, ‘We are conducting training, sensitising stakeholders and collaborating to deploy 5G effectively – Danbatta’, which was sent to our correspondent on Wednesday.

Danbatta emphasised Nigeria’s readiness to deploy 5G and highlighted some of the steps taken by the commission towards deploying the technology in the country.

The statement read, “Danbatta indicated that Nigeria continued to receive visitations by countries who wished to benchmark their operations, just as Nigeria has also visited other countries to explore how 5G and associated technologies can be deployed effectively because 5G technologies are not just valuable, they are so significant due to their derivable social and economic benefits.”

The EVC discussed the innovations that could be triggered in the country through 5G deployment

The statement read, “The EVC explicated how to unlock the potential of 5G, using a triangulated framework pivoted on Enhanced Mobile Broadband, Massive Machine Type Communication, and Ultra-Reliable Low Latency Communications.

“He told the enlightened audience that the above scenarios will find expressions in gigabytes in a second, robust voice and real-time digital social mediation, massive Internet of Things like smart city and smart homes (connectedness of appliances and home security), pervasive 3D videos and Ultra High Definition screens, augmented reality, self-driving cars, industry automation, high-speed trains, lifeline and ultra-reliable communications in telemedicine and natural disasters that will deliver successful services using critical applications.”
