RCOM is playing a major part in the consolidation of the telecommunication sector in India by integrating SSTL’s wireless business into itself and merging the integrated wireless business with Aircel to create a large & strong pure-play telecommunication service provider. RCOM, as per its strategic deleveraging plans, is also in the process of selling its telecommunication tower assets and monetising its real estate portfolio. Post these transactions, RCOM will primarily have a strong and stable B2B portfolio comprising Data Center business, Enterprise products and solutions and fiber optic cable assets domestically and internationally. These businesses will benefit from the exponential growth in data consumption and would have annuity type revenue profile.
