In conversation with Shalin Sheth, Director, Advait Infratech

Infrastructure resources are very important to maintain optimal function of the economy and the country. How is Advait Infratech committing itself to meet the above scenarios?

Ever since India started witnessing huge advancements in the infrastructure for power and telecom in the late 2010s, we introduced many product service lines from developed and developing countries to Indian markets. With the boosting and supporting policies of the Gujarat Government like Vibrant Gujarat and Make in India with Central Government, we had a successful joint venture with China’s biggest Optical Fiber Cable and Optical Fiber Ground Wire manufacturing company.

Because of this joint venture, we established India’s 3rd biggest OPGW/OFC manufacturing company in Ahmedabad. Additionally, Advait endeavored with China’s strongest company to manufacture Gas Insulation

Substation. Advait successfully brought such companies in India to manufacture GIS and to sell their products in the Indian market. Not only this, we have already started manufacturing a lot of capital goods required for construction of the transmission line, which we used to import from China.

So, being a provider of infrastructure products from inception, we are focusing to establish ourselves as a key telecom infrastructure providing company, backed by manufacturing setups.

The Telecom industry is plagued by its own unique set of challenges. Mention some of the hurdles that the company had to face. What policies did it employ to overcome the challenges?

As one of the leading companies in the Telecom Industry, we will focus on research & developments in the telecom field. In the future, 5G will be an expansion in this sector. Nowadays, the biggest hurdle in the 5G implementation is the huge & complex infrastructure required along with an experienced research team. Today, all the 4G Networks in the country are running upto a max frequency of 6 GHz. For 5G implementation, the frequency required is 30 GHz. For that, it will require an intense network of optical fiber with almost 3 times the number of base stations currently available. In this field, there is a lot of potential and Government support will have a positive impact overall.

Moreover, Advait has also taken up aproject with BHEL for the installation of Live Line OPGW.
