TCS Will Create Private 5G Networks For Corporates, Enterprises!
Tata Consultancy Services is now planning to develop a network of 5G, specifically for businesses and organizations.
In June, Telecom minister Ashwini Vaishnav said that 5G networks will become operational in 20-25 cities and towns by the end of the year.
TCS To Develop 5G Network For Businesses
Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) announced that it would assist businesses and organizations from a variety of industries in establishing private or non-public fifth generation (5G)-backed networks in order to accelerate transformation.
A private or captive network is a wireless technology extension that is used to create a specialized local area network (LAN) within a given building or commercial facility for smooth connectivity needs, with the ability to provide services outside the restricted area.
N Ganapathy Subramaniam, Chief Operating Officer of TCS, said, “As a technology company and a system integrator (SI), we will work with our clients across the verticals and help them adopt 5G led growth and transformation of their businesses, including help setting up their private 5G networks in their campuses or factories.”
He confirmed that under the current framework, TCS, a system integrator based in Mumbai, can set up captive 5G networks for businesses, but it cannot obtain a license or hold spectrum.
Businesses Can Establish Non-Public Network: DoT
The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has recently announced a decision, which was made in accordance with the recommendations of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai), a business that wants to establish a non-public network for captive or restricted use can either directly purchase from the government or lease airwaves from a telecom service provider.
We reported last year that one of the UK’s leading mobile network carriers, Three UK has opted to go with Tata Consultancy Services to configure its mobile network for the ongoing 5G services rollout.
According to the Reliance Industries’ annual report Jio has finished planning its 5G coverage in the top 1,000 cities across the country. Coverage planning focused on targeted client usage and revenue possibilities using heat maps, 3D maps, and ray tracing technologies.
The telco was the highest bidder at the recently concluded spectrum auction and grabbed the premium 700MHz band, which is claimed to provide better coverage using lesser towers.
Post the auction, newly appointed Jio Chairman Akash Ambani announced that the company would celebrate the ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ with the 5G rollout, hinting at a launch on Independence day.
