Telecom Commission gives green signal on spectrum allocation for cordless telephony, What it means to Corporate users?

By November 11th, 2014 AT 1:12 PM

cordless telephony indiaTelecom Commission (TC), which is the highest decision-making authority within the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has approved free allocation of 20 MHz of spectrum for cordless telephone system.

What it means to Corporate users?

It can be used for communicating within a premise or similar small area for non-commercial purpose. With this, the implementation of the move will reduce telecom bills of business houses within their premises and provide more flexibility at work with cordless phones as well as boost development of cordless telephone systems in the country.

“The Commission has said that implementation of the TRAI recommendations would advance the objectives behind Digital India. Therefore, the commission decided to accept recommendation of TRAI and it should be placed before competent authority for final decision,” as per the report.

In 2012, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) had recommended that 20 megahertz of frequencies in a band should be delicensed for low power operations of cordless telecommunications system (CTS) for private and indoor use but not for commercial use.

@ RDB, Just wondering what purpose would it solve when the private operators are already providing CUG plans to corporate users and also there isn’t any coverage area limit. As in case of Cordless, the services would be restricted only to the premises.


@Anshul, 100% of Corporates do not have FREE / UNLIMITED CUG. in my Corporate, for instance, there are so-called UNLIMITED PLANS of Airtel, Idea and Vodafone. Their CUGs only work (a) within the same network and (b) even on the same network – within the same CUG.


What frequency band? What power restrictions? What kinds of use? Cmon guys!
