The ‘5G for Business’ solution has significantly enhanced Chakan’s network connectivity which has resulted in improved speeds for software flashing, a critical operation for all vehicular dispatches. Blazing hi-speeds and ultra-low latency now allow managers to undertake multiple software flashing sessions in parallel, which has resulted in reduced turn-around time for an operation. Further, the computerized vision-based inspection is now fully automated resulting in improved paint quality. Airtel is spearheading 5G deployment in India.
