We are extremely excited about this opportunity and grateful to the Indian Department of Telecommunications for the trust they have placed in us by granting us this licence.”
Before launching the service, RingCentral will complete the buildout of its domestic infrastructure in India, and work with the Indian Department of Telecommunications to ensure all routine regulatory requirements are met.
