C-DOT and Galore Networks have signed an agreement for the collaborative development of end-to-end 5G RAN products and solutions.
In line with India’s efforts to boost indigenous development of 5G ecosystem, the Centre for Development of Telematics (C-DOT) and Galore Networks have signed an agreement for collaborative development of end-to-end 5G RAN products and solutions.
This collaborative approach based on achieving synergy and harmony among multiple ecosystem partners will facilitate the evolution of mutually productive and sustainable alliances. This will act as a catalyst resulting into indigenous design, development, manufacturing and deployment of cost-effective 5G products and solutions. This will bring the technical competencies and complementary strengths of Indian R&D and industry on a single unified platform leading to the creation of indigenous Intellectual Property (IP) assets that can generate new avenues for wider reach and commercialization of home-grown technologies at global level.
Speaking at the event, Dr. Rajkumar Upadhyay, Executive Director of C-DOT, highlighted the vision of “Gati Shakti” and “Atmanirbhar Bharat” in emphasizing the underlying potential of India’s great technological prowess that manifests itself in various path-breaking initiatives of local R&D, industry and startups. He underscored the key importance of achieving synergy amongst various participants of the technology ecosystem to spur novel innovation and competitive spirit leading to the development of holistic indigenous solutions in an expeditious manner. He posed great confidence and trust into these emerging partnerships between R&D and industry in enabling the proliferation of indigenous 5G across every nook and corner of the country. He further remarked that effective collaborative engagements will unlock the vast potential for Indian products and solutions in the international market.
Shri Balaji Kulothungan, Director (MD) of Galore Networks, said the company is excited to collaborate with C-DOT to offer its entire suite of commercially field deployable 4G/5G NSA & SA Macro/Micro Base-station integrated with C-DOT 4G/5G NSA & SA Next Generation Core.
“This is truly an ‘Atmanirbhar’ moment for Indian telecom industry. We will work together with C-DOT to develop 5G products for Indian & Global Tier-1 telecom operators, critical networks, and private networks. This collaboration acts as a catalyst to indigenous companies like Galore to propel them into the orbit of Global telecom OEMs. India’s moment for going global with indigenous telecom products has arrived and Indian economy will soon bear the fruit of success in the near future,” Kulothungan said.
C-DOT and Galore Networks reiterated their firm commitments towards strengthening this collaborative partnership for development of indigenous 5G and further expanding it to other areas of mutual interest.
