Mobile operators rework equipment sourcing pacts ahead of licensing norms

"With the government coming up with new licensing norms soon, mandating companies to procure telecom gear from trusted sources, mobile operators have started reworking their equipment sourcing pacts.

Amendments to the telecom licensing norms are expected any time, mainly to incorporate guidelines of the national security directive (NSD) on the telecommunications sector. They may also seek to control installation of network equipment, mainly from China."
