The two companies have launched managed private 5G-as-a-service for enterprise customers.

Reportedly, Wipro is partnering with Cisco where the two companies will work closely to tap private 5G business globally, initially focussing on the US, Canada, and European markets where spectrum has no challenge.

The Indian multinational will buy network gear and custom solutions from Cisco, and is additionally exploring a revenue-share model, based on pay-as-you-go subscription.

Azim Premji-owned company that has opened its American headquarters in New Jersey, is already in discussions with a few large enterprise customers in the retail chain space as well as airports and stadiums.

From a customer point of view, 5G will be an add-on technology. According to the reports, Wipro already has Wi-Fi, local area network (LAN) and software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN).

The reports further stated that Cisco will be a technology provider, and Wipro will deliver platform and services orchestrated and managed for enterprises.

The New York-based Verizon is also banking on 5G captive network business outside the US market, and earlier said that it offers an entire lifecycle from strategy and planning to architecture design, deployment and management services.

In India, telecom companies argue that it is their expertise to deploy wireless networks, and warn that any move allowing non-telco entities would not only alter market dynamics, but would also hurt financial well-being of the industry.

The partnership news might just be the much-needed boost for Wipro share price. Lately, not only Wipro but all IT stocks are falling. Not only the fundamental but also technical view of IT stocks look dicey.

Here's the current situation of IT stocks from a technical perspective.

Tata Elxsi partners with ISRO

Tata Elxsi has partnered with the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) for the upcoming Gaganyaan Mission. The leading global engineering company has designed and developed the crew module recovery models (CMRM) for the recovery team training of the space mission.

ISRO's Gaganyaan project envisions a demonstration of human spaceflight capability by launching the crew into a 400-kilometer orbit for a three-day mission and safely bringing them to Earth by landing in Indian sea waters.

One of the key requirements of this project is the safe recovery of the crew, which must be carried out with minimum lapse of time.

This is where the crew recovery models come into use. For recovery team training, CMRMs designed and fabricated by the Tata group company simulated the mass, centre of gravity, outer dimensions, interfaces and externals of the actual crew module.
