Huawei is already engaged with customers in deploying 40 commercial 5G networks around the world that will be 97 times faster than 4G. 

Chinese telecoms gear maker Huawei Technologies has warned that India’s 5G ambitions could hit an air pocket if the adequate compatible spectrum is not made available swiftly by the government to the telecom industry for conducting trials to hasten deployment of these much discussed ultra-fast wireless broadband networks.

India – A strong market
India with its sizeable young and population, hungry for digital services, presents attractive opportunities for the 5G services business, but if spectrum supply constraints of the 4G era continue, then the country’s growth opportunities on the 5G front would be hindered, Ken Hu, deputy chairman, Huawei Technologies said today while interacting with world media at the company’s annual global 2019 analyst meet in Shenzhen.

According to Hu, 5G is a strong technology, but business growth challenges would be imminent if India’s legacy of fragmented spectrum distribution of the 4G era continues as the country prepares to go 5G, especially amid heightened competition in the Indian telecom market. 

The Huawei deputy chairman’s comments come at a time when the Indian government is yet to clear the air on whether Huawei will be allowed to participate in 5G trials in the run-up to the next spectrum sale and rollout of the ultra-fast wireless broadband services. 

David Wang, executive director of Huawei’s global board and ICT strategy head, who was also present, said the Chinese gear maker is deeply engaged with the Indian government and telcos in ringing in 5G services in India. 

The future ahead
Huawei estimates there will be a whopping 2.8 billion 5G users by the year 2025 by when 58 per cent of the world’s population will have access to this ultra-fast wireless broadband technology. 

Hu informed that Huawei is already engaged with customers in deploying 40 commercial 5G networks around the world that will be 97 times faster than 4G.
