4G Wireless standard from India
3G has been introduced in India but India is a piggy back rider on this standard platform and till now on all standard platforms. It may change in future if efforts of Prof Ashok Jhunjhunwala and his team bear fruit. To make India a leader in telecom technology TeNet created CeWiT (Centre of Excellenace in Wireless Technology) initially funded by governmnet and industry at 2:1 ratio with the objective to conduct mission oriented reserach in 4G wirelss. This body developed IPR for inclusion in 4G standard taking care of Indian requirement like high system capacity. CeWIT has taken up consortium route and established Broadband Wireless Consortium of India (BWCI).
