Telset.id, Jakarta – The 5G internet network has officially arrived in Indonesia. Although its use has not been massive and evenly distributed, the following are a number of benefits from using the 5G network that users in the country can expect.
Last year, ZTE supported various 5G activities held by several operators in Indonesia. In this activity, the company presented various examples of use cases supported by 5G technology and innovation, including patrol robots, cloud gaming, virtual reality (VR), and augmented reality (AR).
According to GSMA’s 2021 Mobile Economy Asia Pacific Report, by the end of 2025, 5G will account for 14% of total cellular connections, surpassing 2G and 3G.

With significant 5G-related activities increasing in several new markets, including Indonesia, people are looking for new ways to take advantage of 5G networks, not only to improve connectivity, but also to gain economic benefits.
“As with other cellular network infrastructure upgrades, the most attractive aspects are speed, consistency and reduced latency, which will enable a wide range of technology applications,” said Richard Liang, President Director of ZTE Indonesia.
He added, ZTE has been actively participating in deep cooperation between operators and industry verticals, exploring 5G business models and application scenarios to create outstanding network performance.
Deployment and Use of 5G
Although Indonesia is still in the early stages of adopting 5G, the use case examples have grown quite significantly. Some of the highly anticipated 5G use cases, which are expected to arrive in 2022 include:
Smooth video streaming and gaming experience
For people seeking quality entertainment through video content on OTT platforms and online gaming, 5G can significantly enhance their experience.
With 5G speeds that are ten times faster than 4G, and with average speeds reaching nearly 500 Mbps in densely populated areas, 5G will make it easier for users to stream videos and access games, apart from their daily activities on the internet.

With download speeds increasing, 5G has the potential to allow users to watch 4K content, which will become more common as 8K becomes more widespread.
ZTE has also showcased 5G use cases for cloud gaming during the commercial launch of 5G by Telkomsel which allows users to quickly access graphics-rich games via 5G smartphones.
Enabling the use of 5G drones
One of the most interesting use cases of 5G technology is the empowerment of smart cities with integrated and connected infrastructure, which provides convenience and advancement in the use of technology.
Technologies that can be used to support smart cities include the use of 5G drones, and ZTE has also showcased 5G-based drones that are supported by end-to-end 5G connectivity to carry out surveillance around certain areas.

The 5G network is able to improve the performance of drones that can be used in various sectors, including for traffic control and monitoring.
Some of the benefits of 5G networks for drones include increasing object scanning speed, providing HD image quality in object recognition, monitoring vehicle movement in real-time, and increasing efficiency in conducting surveillance.
Support industrial transformation and reduce carbon emissions
5G technology will bring technological disruption that will lead to simplification of work processes and cost efficiency in industrial activities.
This will provide benefits for the company as well as for workers, namely by increasing productivity and reducing workloads.
5G technology enables real-time sensor and data analysis, supporting industries and manufacturing where real-time network performance is critical, such as remote control systems of machines in hazardous environments, improving worker safety factors and many others.
On the other hand, converting a commercial environment or network into a green facility may be a difficult task for operators with little experience in using emerging 5G technologies.
Working with experienced partners is the best way to achieve low carbon status without wasting resources and time. (HR/IF)
