In the aftermath of a natural disaster such as an earthquake, flood or other event, one of the greatest challenges for aid agencies and responders is accessing reliable and robust communication on the ground.

Throughout history, land mobile radio (LMR) technology has provided the most resilient and reliable form of communication. Major events often cause traditional cellular networks to become damaged or unavailable, but LMR networks provide exceptional coverage, are hardened and are highly secure.

DoT to study impact of 5G on airports

India’s Department of Telecommunications (DoT) plans to decide whether to lift a ban on 5G around airports once it has carried out a detailed study.

Late last year DoT instructed operators to disable 5G base stations in the mid-band (3.3-3.6GHz) within 2km from both ends of the runway and almost 1km from the centre line of the runway.

The Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI), wrote to DoT in December 2022 to suggest allowing 5G base stations to be turned back on, pointing out that aircraft altimeter systems run on C-band airwaves from 4.2GHz and above, and not the 3.30-3.67GHz spectrum that is being used for 5G services in India, so interference should not be an issue.
