Sourav Rout: 5G introduction and advancement requires comprehensive policy making and coordination between governments, public agencies and private corporations.

5G introduction and advancement requires comprehensive policy making and coordination between governments, public agencies and private corporations.

Following are some suggestions I shared on 5G policy making with a thinktank (one of my clients) recently during a brainstorming session.

• Better utilise public street furniture for 5G network deployment, with strategy and policy on this ‘owned’ by government agencies.
• Prioritise efficient usage of public and private digital infrastructure, with public institutions encouraged to share their fibre networks.
• Ensure spectrum regulation fosters innovation, including establishing a legal and policy framework to allow enterprises to build their own networks for their own clients – in conjunction with traditional operators.
• Establish a national approach to building skills in 5G, especially in upskilling related to AI and big data.
• Formulate a comprehensive public-private partnership for ensuring cybersecurity, privacy and data governance at the core of policy making and applications build-up.
• Evaluate possibilities of subsidizing infrastructure deployment costs and encourage network sharing.
