Samsung exhibits 5G Tech for Smart Agriculture in India

The South Korean multinational electronics company, Samsung Electronics on 30 October exhibited how its solutions can enable a range of 5G-powered business models and scenarios for smart agriculture, home broadband services as well as smart cities in India.

It said that smart agriculture will be a key focus area when 5G services will be rolled out in India. The 5G use cases for smart agriculture will basically revolve around the sensors and devices on the field that can give information on nutrients, soil moisture, spoilage and other aspects of farming. Director, Networks for Samsung Electronics, Claudia Park said, "Making the world a better place for humans is our focus. We want to make people's life more efficient.” She mentioned that with multiple use cases across different fields, 5G is the new frontier.

In association with the Department of Telecommunications (DoT), Samsung last week had announced its plan of commencing the 1st large-scale 5G trials in the country in the first quarter of next year.

The company further said, "The government is very keen on 5G use cases around agriculture, considering that farming is one of the mainstays of the Indian economy".
