With high speed, without infrastructure: The 5G network began operating in Israel


The main good news that the fifth generation will bring is the high reliability in terms of stability and operation. “This is a 99.9% reliability, and it also combines with it a very low response time of one millisecond,” explained Tal Elimelech, senior director of economics at the Ministry of Communications and the center of the fifth generation tender committee.

“Technology can also save lives. One of the many scenarios in question is robots operated by remote doctors,” he added. “If there is a groundbreaking specialist surgeon in the United States, he will be able to operate remotely in other countries using the same robot. Thanks to technology, the surgeries can be performed without delay, and when he moves his hand, the robot arm will move in real time. It will come at record speed. “

However, the network requires compatible hardware, and in Israel there are a few smartphones that support the advanced technology. While the world has a diverse supply, in Israel it is still limited – only three models. Samsung, for example, offers the 5G service in other countries and in Israel it has not yet done so, possibly due to the slightly higher price of the advanced device. Even on compatible cell phones, the network will only operate if there is a connection to one of the winning companies in the tender, and provided that the surfing package allows it.

To date, the cellular companies have made rapid progress in promoting the operation of the frequencies, in order to win grants of tens to hundreds of millions of shekels from the Ministry of Communications. Now that the incentive is over, there is a real chance that the antenna deployment rate has dropped significantly.
