Indian telecom equipment access threshold further

  • Detail

The entry threshold for Indian telecom equipment has been raised further

recently, it was learned from relevant manufacturers that some domestic manufacturers have successively accepted the new safety regulations for Indian telecom equipment and will hand over the network source code of their equipment to third-party enterprises. Meanwhile, it is reported that reliance, an Indian operator, has been approved to purchase equipment from Chinese manufacturers

prior to this, Chinese communication equipment manufacturers have had "zero sales" in the Indian market for seven months this year; The situation of foreign manufacturers is also not optimistic

overseas manufacturers are still seeking their way in India

as of press time, foreign equipment manufacturers still do not agree to hand over the source code and continue to negotiate with India

recently, it has been reported that relevant western groups have put pressure on the Indian government, resulting in the approval of European and American equipment manufacturers to implement India's safety regulations last year. It is only necessary for relevant operators to issue their own certified safety certificates to sell equipment to India. This statement also points to the fact that India will implement two different sets of standards for China and European and American communication equipment manufacturers

according to relevant manufacturers, the policies to be implemented by European and American equipment manufacturers have not been finalized yet and are "still under discussion", but they should be solved in August

"neither Indian nor foreign manufacturers can afford to delay." A person from a domestic manufacturer who did not want to be named told, "the Indian telecommunications sector is actually under great pressure from domestic and foreign industries. At present, it has entered the end of the third quarter, and the impasse in the Indian market will have a great impact on the performance and profits of foreign manufacturers this year." Outside India, the latter's global market sector continues to be squeezed by Chinese manufacturers this year

India is an indisputable place for communication manufacturers. It not only brings substantial income, but also represents the future with its vast market potential to be developed. Taking domestic manufacturers as an example, the Indian market currently accounts for about 10% of its total sales, and this figure is still growing rapidly

some domestic voices raised objections to the practices of some domestic manufacturers. In this regard, the researcher of the Policy Institute of the Telecommunications Research Institute of the Ministry of industry and information technology believes that people in the industry should see more of their helplessness. "Enterprises do not have an advantage in wrestling with other government departments. In fact, they are vulnerable groups." the so-called "group boycott" statement is "simply unrealistic" for enterprises in different countries with particularly high competition

the mentality of domestic manufacturers at this time may be as in the interview, A person from a domestic manufacturer said: "This kind of thing may be relatively sensitive, but I think we still look at it in a normal state of mind. We can do it in our own way and method, whether it is to grasp foreign policies or laws. We can do it in a courageous way. Today, single PMMA contact lenses are rarely used, while breathable hard materials such as siloxane methacrylate (SIMA) And fluoropolymer materials have been studied more. It is necessary to raise this matter to a certain height. Only by ensuring our relatively good mentality and giving full play to our competitive advantages can we get a better continuation. "

new difficulties for Chinese manufacturers to enter the overseas market

if we say that a few years ago, the domestic communication industry entered the overseas market because the equipment was not trusted and there was no way to enter. However, in the past oneortwo years, the business has been booming, but it has encountered a new threshold - the domestic communication industry is encountering more and more frequent artificial barriers in the overseas market, of which two problems are very prominent

one of them is the access barrier in the name of "security", which is such an incident of Indian telecommunication equipment safety regulations. In addition, during the external expansion in recent years, Chinese communication manufacturers have suffered setbacks in investment and acquisition. The underlying reason is partly related to "national security"

second, domestic telecommunication manufacturers are constantly confronted with patent disputes and anti-dumping lawsuits overseas. In the middle of this year, the EU initiated anti-dumping lawsuits against Chinese data cards, involving more than 20 Chinese enterprises

when inquiring about one of the relevant persons mainly involved in the enterprise, The person expressed his views: "The increasing strength of Chinese companies, especially in equipment manufacturing, has made a big change in the current market pattern. In the past, Chinese companies may threaten their profits, or make their sales decline to a certain extent; now for them, the threat we pose to them is not only that, but may threaten their future survival. I want to face this situation, no matter who, we will take Certain measures. "

link: over the past year, the domestic communication industry has encountered difficulties in India

in August 2009, the Indian telecommunications sector required strict control over overseas procurement of telecommunications equipment, especially Chinese products

therefore, it should not be reflected in the force value reading accepted by the sample. Last December, 2009, the Ministry of finance of India imposed temporary anti-dumping duties on synchronous digital transmission equipment originating in China, with a maximum of 236% of the product import price; The Ministry of telecommunications of India requires that all procurement plans for imported telecommunication equipment be reviewed to obtain a "security pass"

after January2010, some equipment of Chinese enterprises was rejected by the Ministry of telecommunications of India on the ground that it did not meet the "security requirements"

in may2010, the Indian Ministry of telecommunications proposed in a letter to the prime minister's office that, for security reasons, Indian domestic mobile operators should be prohibited from importing products manufactured by Chinese communication equipment manufacturers

2 its thermal insulation performance is slightly worse than that of foreign products. In July 2010, India issued new regulations on the safety of telecommunications equipment, requiring telecommunications manufacturers selling products to India to submit the network source code of their equipment to a third-party inspection agency.
