As you are aware of this issue, supposedly related to Indian govt will allow Huawei, ZTE Chinese companies to start 5G trials in India in the mid of the year 2020.
The government uses telecom gear in railways, smart city missions, and projects such as BharatNet, India’s mission to provide internet connectivity to rural areas. The move is a huge setback for Chinese suppliers such as Huawei, ZTE, and UTStarcom, who might be barred from taking part in government projects in the coming years.
The telecom equipment listed in this letter includes optical fiber, 2G/3G/4G/LTE modems, routers, Wi-Fi-based broadband wireless access system and GPON equipment. Though the notification does not exactly mention China, its implications for Chinese firms are clear since the Chinese government clearly doesn’t allow Indian suppliers in the telecom and power sectors.
Banning Chinese Gear Makers Will Hurt India Itself
This latest development comes days ahead of US President Donald Trump’s visit to India, who in the past hit out at Chinese equipment suppliers over security risks. The US has also urged allies to ban Huawei from participating in 5G networks.
The move will, however, hurt India more as per analysts as it struggles to provide the internet for half its population. The Chinese vendors are more price-competitive than others when it comes to supplying telecom equipment. Indian companies such as Airtel and Vodafone Idea have already partnered with Huawei for 5G trials. On the other hand, state-run BSNL will be teaming up with ZTE to conduct trials in India very soon.
