Cmts uas subscriber growth with security l.jpg
CMTS/UAS – subscriber growth with security

  • One key factor in the exponential growth of mobile has been the creation of an extremely broad based retail distribution chain

  • It is estimated that there are over 7 lakh retailers/ points of sale from which mobile connections are being sold and this number is rising steadily

  • Ubiquitous availability of mobile connections is easily evident in cities & towns as panwallahs, small grocery shops, multi-purpose telecom centres, etc are all selling mobile connections across the counter

  • While easy availability of service has played an important role in its proliferation, it has also brought with it concerns on how that distribution chain is to be managed and controlled
