Adani Group today clarified that it will be participating in the upcoming 5G spectrum auction with the aim to provide private network solutions. The company’s interest in the 5G space is currently limited with no intention on its part to enter into the consumer mobility space.
The company is one of the many applicants participating in the open bidding process. The upcoming auction is the precursor to the rollout of next-generation 5G services in India. As per the NIA for the auction, yesterday was the last date for the submission of applications by prospective applicants.
Adani Group will offer private network solutions along with enhanced cyber security in ports & logistics, airports, power generation, transmission, distribution, and various manufacturing operations.
Also, if we are awarded 5G spectrum in the open bidding, it will also align with our recent announcement of significantly increasing the Adani Foundation’s investments in Education, Healthcare and Skill Development in rural areas, each of which stands to benefit from 5G technology.– Spokesperson, Adani Group
The company is also building its own digital platform encompassing super apps, edge data centres, and industry command and control centres. The company will need ultra high-quality data streaming capabilities through a high frequency and low latency 5G network across all its nominees.
