Value of Telecom Towers
Value of Telecom Towers   Mahesh Uppal The American evangelist Billy Graham reportedly said once that hot heads and cold hearts never solved anything. The actors in the debate whether telecom towers are good or evil could heed those words. There are allegations that radiation from telecom towers is harmful and that mobile operators are like cigarette manufacturers profiting from products that cause disease ...

Are emerging markets driving the future?
It is important to me that I’m constantly reviewing and evaluating milestones and the goals we set in our business. The path we set out and the goals we pursue are important to how we function on a daily basis. I like the data and I like to get an understanding of the business environment from all angles. In emerging markets, where the market landscapes vary so much, it’s even more important to be close to m...

The need for creativity and innovation has never been higher.
The telecom industry has traditionally been a significant IT spender, both on the network side as well as the business side. Over the past decade this industry has witnessed possibly some of the most dynamic changes that are impacting various businesses and the general public. Telecom service providers who traditionally carried voice are now handling all kinds of digital content and have become carriers of mult...

OFC network deployment will gain momentum
Having made large investments in acquiring 3G and broadband wireless access spectrum in 2010, operators have reduced their spending in the past few years, especially on new network roll-outs. Also, the 2G spectrum controversy has led to holding back of investments in the sector. Consequently, the ancillary segments of the telecom infrastructure industry have also taken a hit, which is reflected in the inadequat...

Impact of the TRAI reserve price recommendations on consumers
The draft NTP 2011 emphasises the role of telecoms in “accelerated equitable and inclusive economic growth by laying special emphasis on providing affordable and quality telecommunication services.”   In light of these aspirations PwC in its paper on "Impact of TRAI spectrum recommendation on consumers and industry" assessed TRAI’s ‘Recommendations on Auction of Spectrum’ published on 23rd Ap...

Will an infrastructure RESCO need a battery bank?
The question may sound strange, even unbelievable, given that the topic refers to a model of energy production using renewable energy sources largely for use by telecom infrastructure!!  Sadly the answer is YES. The expectation is that the RESCO, while acting as the producer of energy, must deliver it only when “triggered” to so by the tower company. So what happens when a solar photo voltaic-d...

The telecom industry is going through testing times
The telecom industry in India, which till recently was cited as the most remarkable growth story in the world, is on the verge of breakdown today, and requires urgent intervention from the government to prevent this downfall. The sector which has been highly instrumental in escalating the socio-economic scenario of the country to such credible levels, is today reeling under heavy pressure and finding sustainabi...

Going green has become a compelling necessity for the telecom space
Countries across the world are implementing action plans and setting carbon emission targets to address the challenge of climate change. India, too is taking baby steps in this direction. The telecom industry alone accounts for about 1 per cent of the country's total CO2 emissions. As against this, the global infromation and communication technology  industry's share in total CO2 emissions is 0.7 per cent.&...

Ecosystem For Integrated Energy Management For Telecom Towers
As the tower industry seeks newer means to reduce cost of operations through optimisation and management of energy, the realization that one shoe fits all will not work, is sinking in. There is no point therefore, in force fitting technical solutions crafted in the past, unless they have the strength of promise to deliver measurable performance outcome savings. It is in this context that a technology ecosystem ...

Delaying Qualcomm's ISP Licence : Failing after succeeding spectacularly
The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) seems intent on undoing one its most spectacular successes.  Last year, it auctioned spectrum for two important wireless technologies viz 3G and BWA (Broadband Wireless Access), which can help deliver broadband services across India speedily and cheaply.  It was praised for conducting a remarkably transparent auction and for delivering a whopping Rs.105000 crores (ove...

Remote Management of Telecom Infrastructure
There are close to 400,000 telecom sites spread far and wide within the country – densely located in urban India and sparsely in the rural hinterland. The ability to monitor, engage and control equipment and its performance is limited not by technology but the inadequate applications. The extent to which technology has been deployed is largely for alarm monitoring which indicates a failure that has already tak...

Seizing the Power of Technology
Business leaders in India today live in interesting times. In domestic markets or abroad, businesses are still under tremendous pressure; customers, suppliers and shareholders expect ever faster service, in ever broader geographies; continued economic uncertainty makes the ability to bring new products to market quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively more important than ever. They are therefore transform...

OFC deployment is set to witness rapid growth
Used in the backbone, backhaul and access networks, cables are a key constituent of telecom infrastructure. While copper cables form a large part of the legacy telecom networks in the country, the uptake of optic fibre cables (OFCs) has been gaining momentum, owing to its cost as well as performance-related advantages over copper. OFC deployment is set to witness rapid growth in the coming years, driven mos...

Bridging the rural-urban digital divide
The government believes that better communication services and greater access to information can help bridge the urban–rural digital divide. Therefore, telephony and broadband connectivity in rural areas have been key thrust areas for the government for a while now. While the country’s rural teledensity increased from 2 per cent in 2006 to 33.79 per cent in March 2011, a lot remains to be achieved in ter...

DG at telecom sites: Are we managing it well ?
A lot has been written and spoken about the use of the DG as the primary source of backup power when grid fails or is unavailable.  While the DG is indeed that critical but is the management of DG through technology reflecting our desire to keep the run time as low as possible? For a moment let us keep aside the challenge of pilferage of diesel or the energy produced by the DG set itself. We will undou...

Green energy must be taken to the next level
The telecommunications sector has been the poster-boy of India’s growth story, witnessing remarkable user penetration over the last decade. Analysts have pegged that with every 10 per cent increase in mobile penetration, there is aresultant GDP growth of 1.2 per cent– leading to the development of other business modelsand improved access to the poor. Today, with around 800 million subscribers, one can c...

TRAI needs to be empowered
An industry that has rallied over 800 million telecom users and expects to cross the 1 billion mark by 2014 needs a regulator with more teeth. This has been a long-standing demand of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), which has not been able to ensure that operators comply with policy decisions. With the new telecom policy under way, the Ministry of Communications and IT is finally consi...

Will the Ministry succeed in empowering TRAI?
An industry that has rallied over 800 million telecom users and expects to cross the 1 billion mark by 2014 needs a regulator with more teeth. This has been a long-standing demand of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), which has not been able to ensure that operators comply with policy decisions.

Who deserves USOF subsidies most?
  In rural areas of India, population is generally sparse, incomes low and the cost of setting up infrastructure very high. Universal Services Obligation Fund (USOF) was set up in 2002 to improve the economics of providing telecommunications services in such ‘high cost’ areas. However, despite significant gaps in voice connectivity and virtually no broadband in urban, leave aside rural areas, over half of ...

Well meaning but risky approach to telecom manufacturing
Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), with reason,  is concerned that very little of the equipment deployed in the country’s telecom network or handsets used by consumers  is developed or manufactured locally.  Manufacturing would create jobs and cheaper local equipment could lower costs of expanding its sparse rural and broadband networks. Given their imminent role in priority sectors l...
