NTT, a Japanese firm’s Indian arm, is in talks with leading enterprises in the country for offering 5G managed services. These talks could potentially convert into multi-year contracts for the company.
“NTT is in talks with some of India’s biggest corporate enterprises across a host of industry verticals… our India business model for private 5G services will be in the role of a consultant, wherein, we will initially handle the paperwork to help enterprise clients get private 5G licences/spectrum once that is allowed by the Indian government, “said Manoj Chitgopekar, vice president (managed network & collaboration services), NTT India.
NTT India primarily offers data centre and infrastructure services and is now also readying to offer 5G as a managed service to enterprise clients. The company hasn’t disclosed the name of the clients that it is working with.
