# Growth of the telecom equipment industry
The preceding year has set the right momentum for telecom and related technologies to proliferate further. The advancements witnessed in the wireless connectivity space are all set to evolve to wireless Gigabit networking and the resultant access to high speed quality broadband will drive uptake of new-age concepts such as smart cities, IoT, IIoT, analytics, cloud and smart education to cite a few.
“From a telecom perspective, the following trends will emerge at the top of all considerations:
Gigabit to the Home and Desktop – With the advancements in millimetre wave and mesh technology pertaining to 5G architectures, the last-mile connectivity particularly in the last 20 kms of the access network can now be covered thereby benefitting both service providers and enterprise network players.
Proactive Capacity in the Network – Overcoming the challenges encountered in meeting capacity, enterprise network operators as well as service providers will now be able to rapidly add capacity on demand at the edge of the network leveraging from network monitoring and predictive algorithm capabilities to identify bottlenecks and pre-empt any potential fallout.
Convergence of LAN/WAN – The combination of Gigabit speed wireless communications with fiber backbone will be the technology of choice for distribution and access,” cites Rajiv Kapoor, Vice President, India & SAARC, Cambium Networks.
