New entry into telecom sector
Footwear major Liberty group today announced its entry into telecom sector and has tied up with Israel-based Runcom Technologies to offer WiMax mobile broadband and communication solutions.

Sunfest Runcom Technologies, a joint venture between Liberty group and Runcom Technologies Limited of Israel, have started negotiations with potential operators, which bagged Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) spectrum in the auction held recently.

The JV would be offering end-to-end solution for mobile broadband using WiMax technology that would progress to Long Term Evolution (LTE or 4G).

"The JV has set up a plant in Bawal in Haryana to manufacture Base Stations, Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) both indoor and outdoor and USB Tongs for Broadband Wireless Access and Mobile and Fixed 4G networks (WiMAX-LTE)," Adesh Gupta CEO and Founder of Liberty group, told PTI.

This will include 2000 Base Stations per month and 10,000 CPE/USB Tongs per month, he added.

Five leading firms, including Reliance Industries, Qualcomm, Aircel and Bharti Airtel are likely to venture into mobile broadband segment and may opt for WiMax technology.

RIL is the only firm, which has pan-India licence for BWA while others had bagged spectrum for limited number of circles.

Asked about the business model of new joint venture, Vidhi Gupta, Managment Executive with Liberty group, said, "We would be offering end-to-end solutions for WiMax deployment and would focus on three main areas -- manufacturing, EPC Contracts and System Integration and managed services."

On joining hands with the Israeli firm, she said, Rumcom Technologies has pioneered OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access) and NLOS (Non Line Of Sight) technology, which has been adapted by WiMax forum besides other leading operators for offering mobile broadband using WiMax technology.

The company (Runcom) is engaged in developing, manufacturing and marketing superior technological standards and silicon products, fixed and mobile terminals, base stations, ASN gateways, Network Operating Centres and Value Added Services, Vidhi Gupta said.

Currently the JV has lined up an investment of Rs 30 crore to set up the manufacturing facility, Adesh Gupta said adding more money would be pumped in as and when the business grows.
