India has made extraordinary progress on technological advancement with its Digital Public Infrastructure and India’s telecom market is now the second largest in the world. As a prominent player in optical fiber cables, telecom and networking products and network solution offerings, HFCL continued to demonstrate resilient performance. On the order book front, HFCL bagged product orders worth ₹1750 crores which included order of ₹ 623 crores for 5G telecom networking equipment. It is a proud moment for HFCL that it is the only Indian Company which has received such a large order for indigenously designed 5G equipment.”

Mr. Nahata outlining HFCL’s strategic developments added, “Our core focus on innovation, product centric approach and tapping new geographies and new customers has enabled us to secure large prestigious product orders from leading telecom operators. HFCL proudly unveiled an array of comprehensive suite of next-gen connectivity and 5G backhauling products during the India Mobile Congress 2023 for the World. To meet the growing demand for seamless high-speed internet connectivity for homes and enterprises HFCL launched indigenously designed and developed first ‘Made-in-India’ 5G FWA CPE portfolio, along with 2 Gbps Unlicensed Band Radio (UBR), IP/MPLS Routers, 5G indoor small cell and unified cloud network management system. HFCL further solidified its position as a trusted partner in the defence communication domain and introduced a range of Surveillance Radars utilizing Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave technology through its 90% subsidiary Raddef Private Limited, a R&D enterprise specialising in cutting edge radars and RF solutions. With the launch of 1728-high-fibre count Intermittently Bonded Ribbon (IBR) Optical Fibre Cable, we have further strengthened our position in Optic Fibre Cable domain. HFCL is amongst the top few players well poised to capture larger market share in India and key global markets. Our Company expects FY2024-25 to be another year of transformation with significant progress in launching new products, continued expansion of international business, robust order book, along with a shift towards margin accretive products and projects resulting into increased revenue and profitability in coming quarters.”
