PTA Reveals Plans for 5G Trials in 2019

Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has rolled out its draft framework for the public trials of Fifth Generation (5G) Wireless Networks, its demonstrate systems, and the related services in Pakistan.

The draft framework pertains to the development and test of future technologies especially for the 5G wireless networks in Pakistan.

PTA states that the fast-paced growth in Mobile data traffic and rising consumer demand for a better mobile broadband experience have rendered the upcoming fifth generation of mobile technology as a need of the hour.

“Seen as a comprehensive wireless-access solution with the capacity to address the demands and requirements of mobile communication beyond IMT-2020, it is projected that this technology will operate in a highly heterogeneous environment and provide ubiquitous connectivity for a wide range of devices, new applications, and use cases,” states the authority.


As per the details, IMT-2020 is a term coined by the Radio Communication Sector of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in 2012 to lay down the vision of “IMT for 2020 and beyond.” IMT stands for International Mobile Telecommunications.

The ITU has developed a timeline that necessitates the completion of the standard by 2020.


5G Has the Potential to Add $565 Billion to Global GDP

As for Pakistan, the PTA has underlined that the scope of IMT-2020 is wider than the prior generations of mobile telecommunication systems. Moreover, the ITU has been making decent progress regarding its work on designing the specifications for the IMT-2020.

It has also been collaborating with the entire range of 5G stakeholders with the associated spectrum management and spectrum identification aspects.

The telecom regulator terms IMT-2020 as the foundation for all the activities pertaining to the achievement of goals in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The draft framework for 5G provides for the use of radio spectrum on trial basis for non-commercial purposes to enable the execution of trials for the innovative use of radio frequency spectrum and equipment/apparatus and academic purposes like radio concepts, scientific research, and new systems demonstrations.

The framework provides for temporary Test and Development licenses only that will detail the criteria for the provision of conditions, authorization, duration, and other terms and conditions.

    • 2G and 3G dono faulty networks hein according to qualcomm , kuch din pehly qualcomm ny snapdragon 855 soc announce ke ha , aor 3 din introduction of 5G pay speech de ha , 2G and 3G dono akathy he shutdown hon ge , aor kuch din pehly Telenor Norway ny announce kia ha k next year wo 3G shutdown kr rahy hein aor customers ko 2G pay transfer krein gy jb tak 2G ka license ha , qualcomm b 2021 tak 2G aor 3G free soc launch kry ge in favour of 4G and 5G , because jb mobile devices up say down aor down say up network select krti hein tab buhat ziada battery use hoti ha , is say saaf zahir hota ha k 3G bekar network ha aor operators usko behtr krny ke bajay 5G pay invest kr rahy hein , so 3G kabhi b behtr nhi ho sakti , further ap wikipedia mei n 2G aor 3G likh k search kr sakty hein

      • Stop wasting time on Wikipedia and start living in reality. When do you think 2G/3G will be shut down in Pakistan? And what will be the alternate to Millions of users?

        • He just likes to copy/paste what he reads in other articles online.

          Samajh waisay ata nahi usay, but everyone has a right to post their comments :D

            • Wikipedia kon sa authent hai bhai? Wikipedia ka taqreeban koi bhi article koi bhi update kr skta hai.

  • 4G is giving 3G speeds in most places. What speed you expect from 5G from our telcos Mr. Zafar Abbas Rizvi?

  • 2G aur 3G wali soch k bandy hain 5G smjh he nahi aey ga inhain kahan dain gy approval. Jb Afghanistan main bhe 4G aagya tha tb zabrdasti majboor ho k Auction karwaey thy inhon ne agr kisi ko yaad ho. 5G k liye km az km bhe 2025 tk wait karna parey ga as per our Late Lateef History.

    • No that was wasn’t the case The main reason was; Mr 10% asked his 10 PERCENT but telcos were reluctant to do that. LOL

  • Please stop it, 5G technology ko lunch na kijeye, 5G technology highly brain effective he, jis se hmara dimagh kmzor or log rude, chirhchirhy hojaygy, or new born bachi pr iska zada effect hoga, ye aik networking slow Poisson he, jo brain dead kryga, or ye sb Agenda21 (depopulation) ka zriya he, jo secret societies krna chahti hyn, One world order k liy.
