India's Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has organized eight working groups under the ambit of the Telecom Equipment and Services Export Promotion Council (TEPC) to lead the nation as a top exporter of telecom technologies.

These new working groups have been constituted in key focus areas, including collaborations of OEMs and system integrators; telecom standardization and testing; radio, wireless and satellite equipment; wireline, optical and transmission, and networking equipment; optical fiber and other cables; wireline access and enterprise solutions; IP phones, IP EPBX and sensors; 4G/5G/6G and future networks' core and radio networks; and EMS and component ecosystems for telecom equipment manufacturing.

“Our vision is to work to transform India as a telecom manufacturing hub for global relevance and gain market share in both developed and emerging markets. The working group recommendations are likely to give a fillip to this,” said N.G. Subramaniam, chairman of the Telecom Equipment and Services Export Promotion Council.

“These working groups will also submit suggestions for promotion of [the] export of the respective equipment in the global markets,” TEPC said in a statement. They will also provide recommendations for promoting the export of the relevant equipment to worldwide markets. These task groups will be led by industry professionals.

Both established businesses and more recent newcomers to the telecom market are anticipated to benefit from this initiative. Businesses that have already achieved substantial progress in the export sector, such as Tejas Networks, HFCL and Coral Telecom, can increase their market share. On the other side, up-and-coming businesses like C-DoT will have the chance to demonstrate their skills and support India's export expansion.

India aims to lessen its reliance on imports and establish itself as a major producer of telecom equipment by concentrating on exports. This would increase the nation's standing in the international telecom industry while also boosting its economy.
