This marks a significant milestone as HFCL becomes the first Indian firm to secure such a large order for 5G networking gear from a telecom service provider, evidencing the standout vision and design prowess HFCL has exhibited within the high tech telecom equipment space in India.

This strategic win also bolsters the company's commitment to delivering cutting-edge solutions optimally customised to address the diverse needs of the evolving telecom landscape. Furthermore, it advances the nation's "Make in India for a Global Stage" vision, with significant export market potential eyed for these indigenously engineered products.
