The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) is working on a new “Direct to Mobile” (D2M) technology. It is being claimed that with the help of this technology, videos can be viewed online without internet. Meaning the mobile phone can be directly connected to the OTT platform like Netflix, Amazon Prime on the FM side without internet. Internet will not be needed for this. Let us know about it in detail..
How will D2M technology work?
In fact, video and other internet services will be connected on a fixed spectrum band by DoT. Prasar Bharati had partnered with IIT Kanpur last year for testing ‘Direct-to-Mobile’ (D2M) technology. The 526-582 MHz band can be used in this. DoT has constituted a committee for this.
Will Jio, Airtel and Vi be on holiday?
In such a situation, the question arises whether telecom companies like Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel and Vi will be discharged after the arrival of D2M technology? So the question is, there will be no leave of telecom companies like Jio, Airtel and Vi completely. However, the dependence on jio, airtel and vi for watching online videos will be reduced to some extent.
India tops in watching videos
Let us tell you that at present 82 percent of internet traffic is video related. About 1.1 million minutes of video are streamed or downloaded in India every single minute. An estimated 240 texabytes of data per month is consumed.
What will be the benefit?
“With the help of the converged direct-to-mobile (D2M) network, you will be able to watch unlimited videos without buffering. This will change the condition and direction of online education. In a D2M network, a broadcaster can use such a data pipe and deliver a wide variety of applications apart from traditional TV. The synergy between direct-to-mobile and 5G broadband will improve broadband consumption and spectrum usage in India.
