Bharti Airtel to join hands with Qualcomm Technologies for 5G rollout.

India’s second largest telecom service provider Bharti Airtel said that it will collaborate with USA’s Qualcomm Technologies to provide 5G technology in India. Airtel said that it will utilize the Qualcomm 5G RAN Platforms to roll-out virtualized and Open RAN-based 5G networks through its network vendors and device partners.

“Airtel, as a board member of the O- RAN Alliance, is committed to driving the success of O-RAN and is working with Qualcomm Technologies to explore and implement the O-RAN approach for India. The flexible and scalable architecture of O-RAN will create new opportunities for small and medium-sized businesses to become viable players in the deployment of 5G networks,” the company said in a statement.

Airtel and Qualcomm will also jointly work to develop the 5G fixed wireless access network. The latter is aimed at upgrading home internet networks that are available right now, and will offer gigabit class home Wi-Fi networks by upgrading the existing broadband infrastructure. The new 5G networks will reportedly help upgrade last mile internet connectivity services in remote areas, thanks to easily deployable 5G technology in comparison to typical broadband internet infrastructure.

Speaking on the matter, Rajen Vagadia, president of Qualcomm India said, “There is a compelling case to accelerate the rollout of 5G networks in India, as it will help fast-track the country’s socio-economic growth and development. We are pleased to be working with Airtel, and we are excited by the opportunity ahead. This collaboration is expected to play a critical role in Airtel’s plans to add 5G network coverage and capacity where and when it is needed the most.”
