NEW DELHI: 6G will require 100 per cent fiberisation of towers and given that the current state of fiberisation of towers stands at 38 per cent, the country will have to develop an expedited plan to meet the above targets, a new report showed on Friday. India should continue investing in research and development activities to contribute to the advancement of 6G technology – to strengthen the global knowledge base and help shape the future of this technology, according to the report by KPMG in India, in association with India Mobile Congress (IMC) 2023. India should continue playing an active role in establishing global standards for 6G technology by leveraging its manufacturing capabilities to produce and export 6G equipment to other countries, the report added.
“India’s forward-looking 6G vision document has positioned its digital prowess on the global technology forefront,” said Yezdi Nagporewalla, CEO, KPMG in India. Furthermore, India’s population dividend and technological progress give it a tremendous advantage and can help the country achieve its goal of becoming a dependable global digital leader with cooperative action on digital literacy, cybersecurity, new technologies, and export promotion, Nagporewalla added.
