Adani receives full Unified Licence

12 Oct 2022

5G newcomer Adani Data Networks – part of Indian conglomerate Adani Enterprises – has been issued a full Unified Licence, enabling it to provide any kind of telecom service, the Financial Express reports. Adani has repeatedly stated, however, that it has no intention of entering the retail telecom or consumer mobile sectors and is expected to utilise the authorisation to simplify its operations and limit dependence on third parties.

As noted by TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, Adani Data Networks secured licences for 26GHz frequencies in six circles – Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Karnataka, Mumbai, Rajasthan and Tamil Nadu – via the mass spectrum auction held earlier this year. The company plans to use the spectrum to provide private network solutions and enhanced cyber security for airports, ports and logistics, power generation, transmission, distribution, and various manufacturing operations.
