Huawei signs up MoU to setup US $ 13.5 million telecom equipment testing lab at Bangalore

India is setting up telecom equipment testing lab at Indian Institute of Sciences, Bangalore to conduct testing and certification of software and hardware of all foreign telecom companies in collaboration with Chinese telecom equipment maker Huawei. This will be big boon to Chinese company that had to contest the government's security concern in the recent past. The test lab will have an estimated cost of US $ 13.5 million (Rs. 60 crore).

The telecom minister Kapil Sibal said the decision had been taken in view of the fact that 70-80 per cent of telecom equipment are imported and have been deployed largely by the private service providers. The IISc had simultaneously approached several vendors including Cisco, Juniper, Huawei from the US, Europe and Asia to share internal details of their telecom equipment like detailed design document and internal architecture which are vital for detailed testing. "Huawei responded proactively before other vendors and hence requisite MoU got signed on June 15 between the IISC and Huawei," Sibal said. He added that all the foreign vendors will have to share their architecture for India to develop its own security protocol. In case of any breach of security, the service providers and vendors would be held responsible and it may lead to cancellation of their licences and imposition of hefty penalties. In order to set up domestic testing facility, the IISc had run a pilot project for Center for Telecom testing and Security Certification.
