Whether or not private telecom companies choose indigenous 5G, one thing is clear: BSNL will! The state-owned telecom operator was also working on 5G when it was testing 4G solutions with its local partners.

Synopsis

  • BSNL will roll out 5G on 4G core, in other words, the telecom company will benefit from 5G NSA.
  • The government has yet to allocate 5G spectrum to BSNL.
  • All of the country's private telecom operators are expected to roll out 5G services by the end of this year.

All of the country's private telecom operators are expected to roll out 5G services by the end of this year. The only thing the whole country is waiting for is for the spectrum auctions to be held. The government has not announced a fixed date for the auctions, so there is still no clarity.

BSNL 5G launch date


While private telecom companies will launch 5G this year, the state-owned telecom operator, BSNL (Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited), will launch 5G in 2023, a source told PTI. For this year, BSNL's goal will be the launch of 4G networks.

The state-owned telecommunications company aims to launch indigenous 4G networks and has already developed an internal 4G core in collaboration with TCS (Tata Consultancy Services) and C-DoT (Center for Telematics Development).

BSNL will also opt for indigenous 5G
Whether or not private telecom companies choose indigenous 5G, one thing is clear: BSNL will! The state-owned telecom operator was also working on 5G when it was testing 4G solutions with its local partners.

But the fact is that the government has yet to allocate 5G spectrum to BSNL. While there is no rush, it will be interesting to see what radio waves BSNL gets from the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) to provide 5G services.

BSNL will launch 5G in addition to the 4G core; In other words, the telecom company will leverage NSA (non-autonomous) 5G technology to launch 5G services for users in India.

To do this, BSNL primarily needs 4G networks. Therefore, by the end of this year, BSNL will roll out 4G in various states / cities across the country. Some of these places include Pune, Maharashtra, and Kerala (statewide).

By August, BSNL will begin testing 4G networks in all four districts of Kerala. At the same time, the state-owned telecommunications company could also test 4G networks in other states. BSNL hasn't said anything for now, but things will clear up in a few months. Right now, the industry's focus will be on spectrum auctions.
