In a recent announcement, India’s Minister for Communications, Electronics, and Information Technology, Ashwini Vaishnaw, stated that the country’s 4G/5G technology stack is now ready and that India is set to become a major exporter of telecom technology within the next three years.
The 4G/5G technology stack is a set of technologies, software, and hardware components that enable the deployment of advanced telecommunications services such as high-speed internet, video calling, and streaming services. The development of this technology stack is a significant milestone for India, as it will allow the country to compete with other global players in the telecom market. India has made major strides in advancing its telecommunications infrastructure, and this announcement is yet another testament to the government’s commitment to the sector .
On October 1, 2022, 5G services were introduced, and within 100 days, they had been made available in over 200 cities. Industry leaders from all over the world have praised the rollout’s extreme speed, which has been dubbed the “fastest deployment happening anywhere in the world” in numerous international forums, he said.
Vaishnaw highlighted the population-scale solutions being tested in India across platforms such as payments, healthcare, and identity. Each of these platforms is powerful in itself, but together they become a dynamic force that can solve “any major problem in the world.”
Vaishnaw’s announcement comes at a time when India is witnessing a significant surge in internet usage. According to a report by the Internet and Mobile Association of India, the country has around 700 million internet users, and this number is expected to reach 900 million by 2025. This growth is largely driven by the increasing availability of affordable smartphones and low-cost data plans.
Vaishnaw’s statement is encouraging for India’s tech sector and its efforts to undergo digital transformation.
However, the ability of the government to create a favourable regulatory environment and encourage private investment in the industry will be crucial to the success of the 4G/5G technology stack. However, India’s potential to become a significant exporter of telecom technology is an encouraging development that could have a big impact on the nation’s economy and its standing in the global tech industry.
