ITI is in discussion with Indian companies to provide end-to-end 4G and 5G network gears in the country through an ecosystem of the local technologies.

According to ITI, it is looking at manufacturing equipment for E and V band spectrum. It plans to manufacture eNodeB and 5G NR (new radio) products in its various plants.

Meanwhile, ITI is also planning to manufacture enterprise grade routers for secure data transfer in the defence network and for the networks of telecom service providers.

ITI has already partnered with Tech Mahindra and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) for development of 4G and 5G technology. With these tie-ups, two streams of solutions for 4G upgradeable 5G can be worked out with ITI being the common manufacturing partner.
