Huawei: India Will Adopt 5G Technology Soon

Huawei India CEO Jay Chen said that India’s telecom operators will start adopting 5G technology from this year onward.

“I can tell you massive MIMO (Multiple In Multiple Out) technology (part of 5G technology) will go to India this year. We have had discussions with leading telecom operators who are interested, and right now it is only available with Huawei for commercial deployment,” Chen told the Press Trust of India in an interview.

Chen has discussed the 5G solution for business to business, business to consumer, and business to home services with Airtel‘s chairman Mittal, and added that 5G standards will be firmed up next year when wide scale commercial deployment of 5G will begin, reports

“Earlier there was spectrum scarcity in India. There were 13 operators who were involved in tariff wars. Since last year we have not seen operators complaining about spectrum scarcity. Availability of spectrum gives them the opportunity to deploy the latest technologies like 5G. With Huawei we see this as a very positive move. Our growth has also improved in India in the last two years,” Chen said.
