May 18, 2018

According to the Cellular Operators Authority of India (COAI), the telecom industry has invested around Rs 10.4 trillion in India so far to build a world class telecom infrastructure.

As per the COAI, more than 300,000 base transceiver stations (BTS) were added in 2017, taking the total count to 1.76 million BTS. Further, the proliferation of telecom infrastructure in the rural and remote areas has resulted in efficient connectivity and improved usability of telecom services.

Operators had already established infrastructural blue-print for services ranging from 3G to 4G, now they are taking adequate measures to build the foundation for emerging technologies such as 5G, artificial intelligence, internet of things, machine-to-machine, etc.

The industry body further said it believes India would be one of the fastest adopters of AI-based services.

According to the COAI, AI is a crucial enabler for achieving the national goals in the areas of healthcare, education and capacity building. With a positive ecosystem, driven by better connectivity and a financially robust sectoral health, AI will unveil hitherto unparalleled possibilities.
