Tata Consultancy Services has carved out two new business units dedicated to telecom and 5G solutions led by industry veterans, according to sources. To facilitate the rollout of 5G and engineering solutions led by Vimal Kumar, the company established the network solutions and services unit (NSS) within the communications and media vertical.
Additionally, the enterprise growth group has established the cognitive enterprise network unit (CEN) under the guidance of Satya Pitta to provide intelligent network management solutions.
TCS, the largest IT services company in India by revenue, has been vocal about industry access to the 5G spectrum and optimistic about the 5G prospect.
The development occurs as TCS nears completion of a potential $2 billion (around $16,000 crore) 4G network rollout deal with state-run telecom operator BSNL. The agreement would also assist the Tata Group partnership between TCS and Tejas Networks in bringing their 5G rollout solutions to global telecom operators.
