    Ever since the pandemic started, the netizens across the globe have engendered a new civilization in the `Cloud', thanks to the internet connectivity. According to, almost 4.66 billion people were active internet users as of October 2020, encompassing 59 percent of the global population. While more than half of the world's population have already started using the internet, the prediction that the global Telecommunication market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.0 percent from 2020 to 2027 is a fuel to this trend. The 5G roll out will be a catalyst as well. India, however, seems quite determined to pounce on this opportunity. Currently, India is the world's second-largest telecommunications market with 1.16 billion subscribers and has registered a strong growth in the last decade.
