What India (#TSDSI) has done in #5G? What is #5Gi? It has largely escaped main stream media attention in India. We focus so poorly on our scientific achievements 😀. Here is a Thread-
@AshwiniVaishnaw @PrinSciAdvGoI @GoI_MeitY @DoT_India @TSDSI_India @PBNS_India @TRAI
1. ITU defined the requirements of IMT 2020- official ITU name of 5G. Rural enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) configuration focused on intersite distance of 1.7 Km & 120/500 km/hour speed of vehicles - a speed unthinkable in rural India😀. A requirement unsuitable for #India.
2. #TSDSI's Low Mobility Large Cell (LMLC) focuses on low speeds such as 3/30 Km/hour for pedestrian and vehicles and intersite distance of 6 Km to address Indian scenario. .
@TSDSI_India @DoT_India @GoI_MeitY @TRAI
3. India's Low Mobility Large Cell requirement was accepted by ITU as mandatory requirement of #Rural eMBB in Q3 2017- major win for #India.
@MIB_India @PIB_India @MeityPib @TRAI
4. Standards setting organizations were then required to submit Radio Interface Technology (RIT) that meet ITU's IMT 2020 to qualify as IMT2020-5G standard. ITU evaluates submitted RIT to check if it meets IMT 2020 requirements only then it can be accepted as 5G/IMT 2020 standard
5. 3GPP is a partnership project of standards development organizations of US, Europe, Korea, China,Japan & India. India (#TSDSI) became organizational partner of 3GPP only in 2017- a strategic move (2017? what we were doing all these years?,well were not playing at global level)
6.1 3GPP develops specifications (called Releases). Appropriate Releases may be submitted to ITU for qualifying as IMT standard.
@TRAI @GoI_MeitY @DoT_India @TSDSI_India
6.2 When Indian contributions on new radio waveform that meets Low Mobility Large Cell scenario did not get accepted in 3GPP Release 15 (don't ask me why 😀 TSDSI submitted its own Radio Interface Technology (RIT) called #5Gi as candidate technology for IMT 2020.
7. 5Gi was largely based on 3GPP specifications except the new Radio waveform and some other tweaks. 5Gi was evaluated by ITU and it met IMT 2020 requirements and therefore qualified as IMT 2020 Family of standards- again a major win for #TSDSI and #India.
8. 3GPP announced on December 17, 2021 that it agrees to incorporate TSDSI's new radio waveform in future specification release - Release 17 thus enabling merging of 5Gi into 3GPP's 5G specifications.
9. #TSDSI has been able to incorporate Indian contributions in global wireless standard- a major achievement for India researchers.
What is next ? This is just a beginning and opens up possibility for playing at global level in #6G.

Today we celebrated the 54th Convocation Day of @IITKanpur. It was a privilege to have Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi Ji as the Chief Guest. Hon’ble Chief Minister Uttar Pradesh Shri Yogi Adityanath Ji was also present.
Hon’ble Prime Minister gave Doctor of Science (Honoris Causa) degrees to Prof Rohini M. Godbole , Shri Senapathy ‘Kris’ Gopalakrishnan and Pandit Ajoy Chakrabarty.
@IITKanpur @Infosys @iiscbangalore
He also gave President's Gold Medal to Abhyuday Pandey and Ratan Swarup Memorial Prize to Yash Maheshwari. We would like to thank Shri Narendra Modi Ji for motivating and encouraging the students with his heart warming words.

.@IITKanpur has always been contributing to the projects of national interest. I feel proud to share that we have contributed our bit to the #KashiVishwanathDham.
Our incubated company Acquafront Infrastructure has successfully deployed a patented technology “Self Adjusting Fixed Type Jetty (SAFTJ)” to construct world’s first floating #CNG filling station for #ecofriendly boats on the Khidkiya Ghat, Varanasi.
The station is designed to ensure the consistent and safe #CNG pipeline connection to all the dispensers with controlled risk factors even in peak flood season.

I am delighted to share that Prof Jayant Kumar Singh, Department of Chemical Engineering and his team have developed a first of its kind portable soil testing device that can detect soil health in just 90 seconds through an embedded mobile application, Bhu Parikshak.
The rapid soil testing device will assist farmers in obtaining soil health parameters of agricultural fields with a recommended dose of fertilizers. The mobile application is made available in local languages, and the device is designed keeping in mind the ease of use for farmers
The device can test up to 1 lakh soil samples, the highest testing capability among its predecessors.
For mass production and wider reach, we have transferred this technology to our incubated agritech company AgroNxt Services Pvt. Ltd.

Some of the best scientific minds of India shared some findings today in a virtual press conference on the mathematical model “#COVID_19 India National Supermodel”. It is significant that such models are being used by the policymakers to serve as input in making decisions.
The committee accessed:
1. Potential impact of the lockdown measures - did it help reduce the peak load on our healthcare system, and thus gave time to build on our capacity
2. Assess the impact of migrant labourers travelling back to their places of origin in May and June
The following conclusions have emerged about the course of the pandemic:
a) With no #lockdown, the #pandemic would have hit India very hard, with a peak load of 140+ lakh cases arriving in June.
