HFCL to manufacture 5G radio units in Delhi-NCR
HFCL Ltd has launched its first 5G macro units product 5G 8T8R that has been designed and developed by the company’s indigenous R&D team to address India and global markets. This new RU is said to provide energy efficiency, support digital beamforming and zero-touch provisioning and will be a key component in rolling out 5G networks.
HFCL is investing around Rs 400 crore in the manufacturing of telecom equipment. While the radio units will be manufactured in Delhi NCR, it is still unclear how many units the company is planning to manufacture.
Mahendra Nahata, MD, HFCL said that every tower will require six such radio units. In total, for the 5G rollout in Delhi, the city will require 10,000 towers and six radio units will be mounted on each tower. In total, Delhi alone would require 60,000 radio units by a single operator, which in itself is a big opportunity.
Other than the radio units, HFCL in collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies, HFCL has launched the world’s first Open-source Wi-Fi 7 Access Points under its IO product line. HFCL’s Wi-Fi 7 APs will support peak data rates of over 10 Gbps and will offer latency under 2 ms compared to 5 Gbps and 10 ms of current Wi-fi 6 products. Wi-Fi 7 uses faster connections with 320MHz and 4kQAM, multiple connections with multi-link operation and Adaptive Connections for adaptive interference puncturing to deliver all enhanced user experience while offering better power efficiency.
