India's indigenously developed 4G and 5G technology stacks have been successfully tested to handle 10 million simultaneous calls, Telecom Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw has said.
Speaking at the inaugural Business 20 (B20) event in Gandhinagar on Monday, Vaishnaw said India will roll out its own 4G and 5G telecom technology stacks this year across the country and offer it to the world in 2024.
“Our private and public partnership approach has given us a solution where the core was developed, invested by the public sector, public funds, and everything else sitting on it comes from the private partners. In this entire 2023, we will be rolling it out on about 50,000-70,000, towers, sites and then in 2024 will be offering it to the world,” Vaishnaw said.
