With the inauguration of India’s Smart Cities vision, and INR 100,000 Crores budget (~US$15bn), by the Prime Minister in August 2014, the country’s towercos and MNOs sit with an opportunity to add a layer of smart connectivity to urban landscapes, leveraging existing and new street furniture and cell sites to create heterogeneous networks, creating a tremendous increase in demand for micro and small cell sites. TowerXchange spoke to Indus Towers’ Meenu Sharma to learn how India’s largest towerco is rising to this challenge.
