TSDSI Workshop on “Telecom Technologies for the next Decade”(29 January, 2020: New Delhi)

January 29, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm


TSDSI has been spearheading India’s efforts in contributing to global standards for 5G technologies. TSDSI’s submission has been accepted as a candidate for evaluation as an IMT2020 (5G) standard at the recently concluded meeting of ITU-R WP 5D.

As the world gears up for commercial deployments of 5G Technologies, deliberations on role of digital communication technologies in the next decade have begun. Several administrations and stakeholders from Europe, USA, China, Korea etc. are engaging on the topic.

ITU has a focus group FG NET2030 looking at backbone technologies for next-generation networks in 2030. Similarly, 3GPP is compiling technical items for Release 17 and later for the same.

According to Professor Ari Pouttu, vice-director of the 6G Flagship program at the University of Oulu, it typically takes 10 years from starting research to getting to market. Therefore, it is important that a technology roadmap for the coming decade, keeping in mind India’s market, requirements and technology trends, be formulated quickly. This will help India to be in a strong position to steer the Standards development dialogs in the global arena.


TSDSI, as part of its initiative to explore future technologies, and to realise the above objective, organised a workshop on “Telecom Technologies for the next Decade” on 29 January 2020, where globally eminent researchers were invited to share their ideas on the future technologies landscape. The expected outcome from the workshop was identification of potential research topics in emerging technologies in this space, that can then become the focus topics for IP creation by our techpreneurs and startups.
