5G Rollout in India and Ploycab’s One Stop OEM Strategy
With replacement of 4G technology, 5G would bring in low latency, ultra-high-speed data transfer rate, huge data-traffic and connection-density, thereby creating a need for rapid and structured roll-out of optical fiber cables in India. Polycab, understanding this demand has forayed in optical fibre segment to maintain its market leader stature in the Indian Cable industry.
