Telecommunication Infrastructure in India: AN Uphill Journey


  • Sumanjit Singh


Making the development of an adequate telecommunication infrastructure has become one of the major goals of policy makers in India. Telecommunication infrastructure consists of many components. It is a combination of civil works, towers, antennae and cables, coupled with hardware and software comprising access, switches and transmission systems all combine to constitute the telecommunication infrastructure. Optical fibre cables, terrestrial wireless, satellite systems and Internet are all key components of the modern infrastructure. Rapid growth of Internet has also created huge new demand for the broadband access.
