Manoj Kohli, managing director, Bharti Enterprises said, “Globally data is engulfing the consumers and it will be a data led life. SoftBank Japan gets 60 percent revenue from data but day is not far when 80 percent revenue will come from data but in India will take time.”

Kohli commented, “Major revolution is expected globally and nationally as it will be all technology driven. So one needs to focus on three things – massive investment is required in fiber, software development has to happen in vernacular and pricing has to be made viable, affordable and profitable.”

Speaking at the inaugural function, Rajan S Mathews, director general, COAI said, “India has the lowest spectrum per operator vis-a-vis neighboring countries like Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.”

“For proliferation of mobile broadband, there should be alignment between center and state with respect to fiber access and towers,” added Mathews.

In his welcome address, Lt Gen PD Bhargava, group deputy vice chancellor, Amity Universities and Advisor, Amity Institute of Telecom Engineering & Management (AITEM) said, “Future of network will depend on four things- Cloud, big data, analytics and internet of things (IoT).

Bhagwan D Khurana, chairman, Newgen Holding said, “Indian urban investment expenditure investment in next 20 years will be $800 billion of this 10 percent investment will be for ICT.”
