Indian entities are gearing up to take the first steps towards entering the global telecom equipment market, with an estimated annual revenue of $110 billion. This space is currently dominated just by a few players.
The Centre for Development of Telematics (C-DOT), an R&D centre of the government that has tied up with Tata Consultancy Service (TCS), is expected to be ready to export telecom equipment from the country by 2024, according to a senior official in the Department of Telecommunications (under which C-DOT functions). Reliance Jio, which is aggressively rolling out its 5G network and has built its own 5G core and radio, is also getting ready to enter the global telecom gear market, according to people in the know.
C-DOT has already developed technology for both 4G and 5G core (non-standalone) and will be soon offering the more advanced 5G core (standalone). It, according to sources, is also in the final stages of offering telco-grade 5G
