Shenzhen: Chinese telecom equipment major Huawei on Tuesday said that India should address the constraints in the spectrum availability to make 5G technology-based services a success in the country.

Speaking on the sidelines of the Huawei Global Analysts Summit 2019 here Huawei Executive Director David Wang, who is also the company's ICT strategy head, also pointed out that the Indian telecom market is currently faced with excess competition.

"Huawei would like to see India become more attractive in terms of 5G. We hope to see more changes in the Indian market..there is lack of spectrum for 5G operators which could affect the services.

If the constraints present in the 4G is there in 5G as well, then these constraints might hamper growth," Wang said.

Huawei Deputy Chairman Ken Hu said some of the growth irritants of 4G in India should not be repeated.

These problems had made it difficult for telcos to make profits with the 4G spectrum in the face of excessive competition in the telecom services market.

"If operators are struggling to make profits under 4G, I wonder how will they become profitable in 5G. Competition in Indian market is overheated", Ken said.

"My personal view is that for a very long time after 4G deployment, eMBB will be the main scenario.

If operators are already struggling to gain profits on eMBB scenario under 4G, then I wonder how do they make profits under 5G", he added.
