Dialog Axiata PLC, Sri Lanka’s premier connectivity provider, followed the announcement of the region’s first 5G pilot transmission with the launch of a live 5G showcase which will be open to the public until 10 April. 

The showcase was instigated on 2 April in the presence of Minister of Telecommunication, Foreign Employment and Sports Harin Fernando, Minister of Digital Infrastructure and Information Technology Ajith P. Perera and High Commissioner of Malaysia to Sri Lanka Tan Yang Thai. 

The showcase featured a holographic video call together with a holographic remote music production, 360ᴼ 8K video calling, and 360ᴼ 8K live virtual reality enabled video streaming, as well as an ‘AI powered Digital Twins’ mechanism and the ‘Robotic Arm’ amongst other 5G offerings at its flagship experience centre in Colombo. 

The introduction of 5G wireless networks paves the way towards the 4th Industrial Revolution by providing high bandwidth, ultra low latency and massive connectivity; enabling communication beyond connecting people, to bridge a mesh of connected machines all communicating with each other. Further, the launch of 5G with demonstrated speeds of over three Gbps and the potential of attaining speeds up to five Gbps, along with an achievable low latency of one millisecond on a 100 MHz spectrum will spark an unprecedented wave of innovative use cases centred around Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Mixed/Virtual Reality and Robotics. 

The interactive demonstrations exemplifying the future of possibilities of 5G technology applications, are open to the public to experience by registering via www.dialog.lk until 10 April at the Iconic Experience Centre, Sri Lanka’s premier tech flagship store
