Huawei, the leading global ICT solutions provider, on Wednesday welcomed India’s National telecom Policy 2012 as path taking development.
“Huawei welcomes National Telecom Policy 2012 as another path breaking development aimed to fuel the broadband growth in India. The policy is far sighted and would revolutionize the telecom industry by transforming the mobile device from a mere communication instrument to an instrument of empowerment”, said Cai Liqun, CEO, Huawei India
He said that the policy aims to enrich the common man’s life through communication by targeting 100% rural penetration and 600 million broadband connections by 2020.
“We further support the policy guidelines which talk of fiber connectivity to the village panchayat levels, thus bringing in the benefits of technology at the grass root levels”, Huawei said.
The company said that it is also encouraged by the proposed policy to rededicate our efforts in India by being a strong local player with our software development facilities established in Bangalore 12 years ago and our manufacturing activities that commenced last year.
“This is in line with our corporate policy of leveraging local talent and building competence centers such as Global technical services resource center as well as Global bidding and solutions center in India.This is in addition to the local R&D, manufacturing and Network Operation Centers created already. Being a leading global end to end ICT solutions provider, our aim continues to serve our customers by offering state of the art technology at affordable prices, thus creating maximum value to operators, enterprises and end consumers”, Huawei said.
