India Capable Of Building Own Telecom Network, The Time Is Now
Amidst the pandemic, when homes have doubled up as virtual classrooms for children and as workplaces for office goers, the importance of strong and secure telecom networks has stood out in a big way. With 5G being the way forward and given the issues related to data sovereignty and cyber attacks, can India have a home grown next generation communications network? Possible, says Prof. V Kamakoti, member of National Security Advisory Board (NSAB). The software can be completely indigenised and hardware can be procured from multiple vendors to have a heterogenous network, he told StratNews Global Editor-in-Chief Nitin A. Gokhale. Data itself is a huge risk, said Satish Jamadagni, Head of Standards, Reliance Jio, joining in the conversation. Vulnerabilities are there at every level. The answer to that is to indigenise hardware, he added. India has the capability to develop an indigenous telecom network, said Dr Kumar N Sivarajan, CTO and Co-Founder, Tejas Networks India. The opportunity is now, agreed the other two panelists.

Centre considers cutting 5G prices to offer telcos relief from increased costs of China ban
By Devina Sengupta & Anandita Singh Mankotia, ET Bureau Last Updated: Jul 29, 2020, 08:20 AM IST

MUMBAI | NEW DELHI: The government may consider lowering the base price of 5G spectrum to compensate telcos if they have to shell out more for buying non-Chinese equipment.

Officials said the government was aware that keeping Chinese vendors Huawei and ZTE away from India’s 5G market may push up network deployment costs and is thus open to reassessing the base prices suggested by the regulator to make it viable for operators.

Base rates too high
Experts said the absence of Huawei and ZTE would leave Indian telcos dependent on European vendors Ericsson and Nokia, besides South Korea’s Samsung. This would increase deployment costs by 15-20%, ultimately hurting retail and industrial customers.

The officials said the government is aware of the cost implications, especially as the two Chinese companies have historically offered the lowest rates for telecom equipment.

X-Posting from Re: Geopolitics/Geoeconomics Thread - June 2015

Mukesh.Kumar wrote:An interesting article on how the Internet is being carved up into different beings and what Jio means for the future of the internet.

India, Jio, and the Four Internets

The authors thesis is that you cannot ignore geopolitics/ geoeconomics in the future of the internet. Already the world is split into at least four different zones of influence. This play around Jio is finalizing this and going to affect the future of telecom and IT industry.

One of the more pernicious mistruths surrounding the debate about TikTok is that this will potentially lead to the splintering of the Internet; this completely erases the history of China’s Great Firewall, started 23 years ago, which effectively cut China off from most Western services. That the U.S. may finally respond in kind is a reflection of reality, not the creation of a new one.

What is new is the increased splintering in the non-China Internet: the U.S. model is still the default for most of the world, but the European Union and India are increasingly pursuing their own paths.


The Indian Counterweight
It is increasingly impossible — or at least irresponsible — to evaluate the tech industry, in particular the largest players, without considering the geopolitical concerns at stake. With that in mind, I welcome Jio’s ambition. Not only is it unreasonable and disrespectful for the U.S. to expect India to be some sort of vassal state technologically speaking, it is actually a good thing to not only have a counterweight to China geographically, but also a counterweight amongst developing countries specifically. Jio is considering problem-spaces that U.S. tech companies are all too often ignorant of, which matters not simply for India but also for much of the rest of the world.

Still, Facebook, Google, Intel, Qualcomm, et al should proceed with their eyes wide-open: they are very much a means to an end for a company and a country that is on its own path. That is not to say these investments are not a good idea — I think they are — but India’s path is perhaps a more populist and nationalistic one than many Americans would prefer. Still, it is less antagonistic to Western liberalism than the Chinese Communist Party, and again, an important counterweight.

The only question left, then, is whither Europe, and frankly, the picture is not pretty:

The Four Internets

What differs Europe’s Internet from the U.S., Chinese, or Indian visions is, well, the lack of vision. Doing nothing more than continually saying “no” leads to a pale imitation of the status quo, where money matters more than innovation.

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., the world’s leading wireless technology innovator and the driving force for 5G, and Jio Platforms, today announced that they are working together to develop indigenous 5G solutions and network Infrastructure for India
The two companies also announced that they have achieved over a 1 Gbps (1,000 MBPS) speed on the Reliance Jio 5GNR solution and the Qualcomm 5G RAN Platform.
The achievement not only supports Jio’s 5G credentials but also signifies entry of Jio & India into the Gigabit 5G NR product portfolio. Currently only a handful of countries (USA, South Korea, Australia, Switzerland & Germany) are able to offer 1GBPS speeds to 5G customers.
With 5G tech, users will experience the benefits of higher data speeds, low latency communications and enhanced digital experiences across a wide array of connected devices, from 5G-enabled smartphones to enterprise laptops to AR/VR products to vertical IOT solutions.
Jio has been working on developing indigenous 5G solutions which will have wide-ranging applications across retail & industrial segments. Its strategic tie-ups with global leaders like Qualcomm helping it fast track while benchmarking with highest global standards
In Jul 2020, Qualcomm Ventures, the investment arm of Qualcomm Inc, announced an investment in Jio Platforms. Aimed to deepen the ties between Qualcomm and Jio Platforms and to support Jio Platforms on its journey to rollout advanced 5G infrastructure & services for India.
At that time, Sh Mukesh Ambani had said how as a world leader in wireless technologies, Qualcomm’s deep knowhow, insights will help Jio deliver on its 5G vision & digital transformation of India for both people, enterprises. The vision is one step closer to fruition today.
