Telecommunications standards are important in that they provide a mechanism that allows interoperability—a common vocabulary, in effect—and thus enables competition among device manufactures and carriers. Without standards, a user may conceivably need to have a device for each network or function within a network. TEC under DoT frames specifications / standards for Telecom Equipment & Network in the country with an objective to establish State-of-the-Art, seamlessly interoperable telecom networks. Telecom Equipment Manufacturers /Suppliers get their products tested and certified against these standards /specifications. TSPs specify these standards/specifications while purchasing the equipment for the networks being implemented by them. TEC has been associated with International Standardization bodies like ITU in respect of developing global standards. National Working Groups in TEC corresponding to various study Groups of ITU contribute to Global Standards making process.
At present telecom equipment used in Indian network is governed by Technical Conditions contained in the License Agreement for Unified License, which states as follows “the Licensee shall provide the details of the technology, proposed to be deployed for operation of the service, to the Licensor. For providing the Service, the Licensee shall utilize any type of equipment and product that meet TEC standards/ specifications, wherever made mandatory by the Licensor from time to time. In the absence of mandatory TEC standard, the Licensee may utilize only those equipment and products which meet the relevant standards set by International standardization bodies, such as, ITU, ETSI, IEEE, ISO, IEC etc.; or set by International Fora, such as 3GPP, 3GPP-2, IETF, MEF, WiMAX, Wi-Fi, IPTV, IPv6, etc. as recognized by TEC and subject to modifications/adaptation, if any, as may be prescribed by TEC from time to time”. Thus the telecom standards /specifications developed or prescribed by TEC are regarded in India as National standards /specifications.
In this backdrop, this module will introduce need of standards and its harmonizations, Institutional framework for standards adoption, standards adoption process, inter-play of various governmental non-governmental and international organizations in formulating standards, and Policy Guidelines in this regard.
