Centre Plans Multi-Vendor-Led Model For BSNL 4G

After cancelling the Rs 8,697-crore 4G tender and blocking Chinese vendors like Huawei and ZTE the government is exploring a multi-vendor-led model for rolling out the new network of BSNL.

Under this model, the 4G network will be built and managed by a system integrator, which will basically buy hardware and software from different companies like Nokia, Ericsson and other foreign vendors and assemble them.

This is a new model which is being tried globally and for BSNL, since the system integrator will be an Indian player, it will give the touch of a domestic company having built the network.

Analysts feel that given the poor financial condition of BSNL, trying this new approach will be detrimental, particularly since the company is a late starter in the 4G business.
