Making the development of an adequate telecommunication infrastructure has become one of the major goals of policy makers in India. Telecommunication infrastructure consists of many components. It is a combination of civil works, towers, antennae and cables, coupled with hardware and software comprising access, switches and transmission systems all combine to constitute the telecommunication infrastructure.
