The No-Buffering Era Of 5G Will Make Live Videos Lively


No-Buffering Era Of 5G Will Make Live Videos

The world is slowly yet steadily recovering from the havoc unleashed by the COVID-19 pandemic. At the beginning of the outbreak, businesses and people had to identify new ways to sustain their day-to-day activities during difficult times. The blessing in disguise were technologies, including cloud communications, which kept us connected and enabled remote working. Even as there is a strong hope today, that humanity will leave the deadly virus behind, one key learning for businesses is to be future ready by adopting communication technologies, which allow a contactless engagement with customers.


Given the scenario, businesses are increasingly inclined to deploy live high-definition video interactions with their customers and other stakeholders. Traditionally, the live video experience in India has faced issues, such as bandwidth crunch, inconsistent connections, etc. However, with the growing demand for faster network speeds and reliable connections with stronger bandwidth, there is a strong pull for the 5th Generation of telecom standards, aka, 5G, in the country and around the world. In fact, all the major telecom operators in the country have already expressed their readiness to test their 5G networks, subject to Government approvals.


Based on some global experiences, 5G will usher in a new, no-buffering era of data consumption. It does so by providing a 10x reduction in end-to-end latency. This gives the consumers the ability to enjoy seamless, immersive VR experiences, ultra-low latency live broadcasts, high-speed mobile video communications and so on. Furthermore, 5G also leads to a lower cost per gigabyte consumed, thus, making video calls more cost efficient.
