In line with the “Make in India” programme, Swedish communication services giant Ericsson on Thursday commenced the export of 5G-ready telecom equipment from its manufacturing facility in Pune, Maharashtra, to markets in Southeast Asia.

The initial shipments consisting of Ericsson’s 5G-ready radio base stations and microwave equipment for 2G, 3G and 4G technologies have been delivered to Indonesia, Singapore and Thailand, the company announced at the India Mobile Congress 2018, here.

Ericsson is looking to add more Southeast Asian markets to its list of countries to which its facility in India exports products from the Ericsson Radio System portfolio.

“Ericsson has been in India for well over 100 years and we were the first company to start manufacturing telecom equipment in the country in 1994. Our state-of-the-art facility will continue to cater to the domestic market even as we commence exports to other markets in Southeast Asia,” Nunzio Mirtillo, Head of Ericsson South East Asia, Oceania and India, said in a statement.

In 2016, Ericsson had set up a manufacturing facility in Chakan, Pune, with an initial investment of $20 million.

This facility has been catering to the domestic demand so far and the company plans to ramp up capacity once the export volumes pick up.
