ERS Strategy for Telecom Services Providers | HCLTech


HCLTech is the innovation partner to leading telecom service providers and original equipment manufacturers. Engineering and R&D Services being our forte, HCLTech helps telecom service providers in faster time-to-rollout and reducing the cost to maintain their network infrastructure. We work with original equipment manufacturers in telecom to reduce time to market and R&D investment.

With a diverse technology portfolio including edge, RAN, transport, 4G/5G core, analytics, IoT, cloud, and security, we serve the top ten telecom vendors and top seven telecom operators generating a total mutual value of more than $50 billion. To meet fast-paced technology demands in the 5G ecosystem of the near future, we have also invested significantly in training and lab infrastructure for IP development, and provided resources to enhance the 5G portfolio of our partners and telecom operators. Our state-of-the-art 5G Lab offers a complete portfolio of 5G engineering services and solutions in collaboration with more than 15 partners and telecom operators. Combining 5G challenges and trends and translating them into opportunities, we have a migrate-modernize-monetize (3M) strategy to accelerate 5G transformation. To accommodate the recent changes in the industry landscape, we have built capability and reliable solutions to address the following problems of telecom OEMs:

  • P1: Network Overload Management
  • P2: Mission Critical Communication
  • P3: Engineering Workforce Elasticity
  • P4: Autonomous Drone Shipment
  • P5: Network Slice On Demand
  • P6: Edge Computing Analytics
