All 5G phones will be junk ? Government will start testing from January 1, 2023
MANUSHER BHASHA TECH DESK:-
5G smart phones are being sold indiscriminately in India. Alarm is that 5G smart phone sales are registering an increase at a daily rate. In such a situation, it is reasonable that a large population in India is using 5G smart phones. But the government is planning to issue a certificate after testing for the use of 5G smart phones sold in India. In such a situation, the question arises whether 5G smart phones that fail the test can be junk forever. There is currently no clear information on this matter. Although it may happen that the government can grade 5G smart phones. This may be done for security reasons.
Local testing and certification of smartphones will be necessary
According to the report, recently the government has announced to conduct local testing and certification of all 5G devices sold in the country. The wing of the Department of Telecommunications is planning to conduct the Online Testing and Certification of Telecom Equipment (MTCTE) of 5G devices in an internal meeting of the Telecom Engineering Center (TEC). Under this scheme, 5G enabled smart phones, smart watches, wearable smart cameras will be sold after testing and certification. The plan for testing and certification of all 5G devices is expected to start from January 1, 2023.
What is the argument of telecom
Telecom companies and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) have urged the Department of Telecommunications and the central government not to conduct local testing and certification. Because approval from the Ministry of IT and Electronics (MeitY) and Bureau of Industrial Standards (BIS) is required before launching on any 5G device. Under this, it is mandatory to register the electronic product manufacturers. Also, Indian safety standards have to be followed. In such a situation, there is a possibility of delay in the launch of the electronic device due to separate testing and certification.
