Introduction

Advanced communications can dramatically change how information is provided and consumed, business is transacted and essential services are undertaken. They enhance wireless technologies giving higher speeds, better connectivity, and more pervasive access to communications systems. The insatiable societal demand for an intelligent, automated, and ubiquitous digital world accompanying decreased cost of extracting, processing, storing, and transmitting data has enabled extensive interconnectedness of devices. It is predicted that by 2022, 29 billion devices will be connected globally and 500 million of these will be through 5G wireless networks which is the next wave of fast mobile broadband networks. The AJ Paulraj Steering Committee on 5G predicted the economic impact of 5G to be over $1 trillion by 2035. Global telecom industry body GSMA expects India to have 920 million unique mobile subscribers by 2025 that include 88 million 5G connections.The transition to 6G with a speed of 1 Tbps over 5G’s 1 Gbps compared to 20-100 Mbps of 4G will be swift.  High-speed wireless communications accompanied by security and reliability are critical to India’s economic and overall competitiveness. Such advanced communication technologies include- Satellite Communication, Navigation systems, Quantum and Molecular Communication.
