What differentiates our conferences?

  • The agenda is developed by our researchers, who track the sector round the year. It is thus relevant and topical. It is not driven by a particular organisation and does not have a particular slant.
  • The speakers are professionals and experts involved in the sector, not a mix of ambassadors, ministers, celebrities and business owners.
  • The conferences do not just comprise panels and speeches; they provide a good mix of expert presentations and case histories, and of course panel discussions.
  • We have representation from across the country, as is the case at our physical conferences too.
  • Each stakeholder group – policymakers, developers, financiers, consultants and relevant NGOs – is represented at our conferences.
  • The moderators merely ask the questions. The stars are the speakers themselves.
  • The sessions begin and end on time.
  • There is adequate time for a Q&A session with each speaker. These are not “hit and run” speeches.
  • The delegates are professionals who are vested in the sector, and are not just assembled through social media.
  • The participants in each conference receive a concise report outlining the key facts, trends and issues in the sector.
  • A recap of the conference is also made available to reinforce the key takeaways.

  • The telecom infrastructure industry has been the backbone of India’s telecom revolution. In these testing times, it has yet again come underthe spotlight for ensuring business continuity for millions of organisations as their employees work from home during the lockdown to contain the Covid-19 outbreak.
  • In the past few months, the telecom industry has witnessed significant capacity enhancement on existing towers and uptick in the fibre-to-the-home (FTTH)service usage to match the surge in residential broadband demand. Telcos, towercos and ISPs are already discussing the installation of new towers andpreponing their optical fibre cable (OFC) network roll-outs.
  • Over the years, towercoshavetaken up a bigger and significant role in the creation of next-generation digital infrastructure across the country. They have strategically moved beyond their traditional offerings to explore new competencies that complement their core expertise. These include data-led business streams such as fibre, small cells, Wi-Fi, IoT and data centres.
  • Further, the launch of 5G services in India will open up new opportunities for telecom infrastructure providers as the technology would require massive network densification, more towers at short distances, small cell deployment and exhaustive site fiberisation.
  • Currently, only 31 per cent of telecom tower sites in India are connected to a fiberised backhaul. This will have to increase to atleast 70 per cent for 5G enablement.
  • Large-scale fiberisation will also be critical to the success of government programmes such as BharatNet, Digital India and Smart Cities.
  • Meanwhile, OFC investments in the last mile,particularly FTTH deployments,are also gaining traction. The fixed home broadband segment received significantimpetuspost Jio’s entry last year. Now, the ongoing pandemic, as unfortunate as it is, has given a new stimulus to in-building solutions such as FTTH and Wi-Fi hotspots inside buildings.
  • Post Covid-19, there is going to be a clear shift towards indoor coverage, which in turn would require huge investments in fibre roll-outs inside buildings and to the curbs. The industry is likely to see large-scale investments from existing players looking to expand their last mile fibre networks. Infact, estimates suggest that service providers will more than double their fibre footprint over the next three years.
  • Going forward, new OFC roll-out/sharing models will have to be explored for an expeditious and enhanced coverage as well as to ensure a reasonable return on capital.This would require non-telco players to pitch in. For instance, towercos are well positioned to leverage the fibre opportunity, with their existing experience in managing distributed infrastructure assets. Meanwhile, utilities in sectors such as power, gas, water and railways, which are already deploying fibre networks, can operate as neutral wholesale providers for telcos. TRAI has recently recommended increasing the role of IP-1s,allowingthem to deploy active components such as fibre, antennae and Wi-Fi. DoT’s approval to these recommendations can be a gamechanger for the telecom infrastructure industry and also for India’s digital transformation.
  • The mission of this event is to highlight the new growth drivers and opportunities for towercos and OFC players in India, discuss potential business models, study the impact of key government and private sector initiatives, and showcase the latest innovations and most promising technologies. The virtual conference will also provide a platform for telecom service providers, tower companies, policymakers, OFC manufacturers and technology providers to share their experiences and exchange ideas.
