MTNL Rolls Out MPLS Network In Delhi

Sterlite Optical Technologies has announced that it has successfully implemented the MTNL's MPLS core in New Delhi.

With the completion of this network, MTNL would be able to provide a unified platform to launch its new services like 3G, IPTV and content networks. This network would also enable MTNL to provide VPN and Transparent LAN services to corporate customers in Delhi.

R S P Sinha, CMD - MTNL stated, “The technology would not only ensure consistent performance, but also bring down cost, increase reliability and scalability which is comparatively much more complex and expensive in the traditional networks. MPLS technology provides lower latency, easy provisioning, higher security and bandwidth. The service would be launched shortly in Mumbai.”

Speaking at MTNL's MPLS launch event, Dr Anand Agarwal, CEO and director - Sterlite Optical Technologies said, "Our association with MTNL goes back over two decades with Sterlite's supply of our Fiber Optic Cables and Copper Telecom Cables. With our experience in manufacturing of backbone products, coupled with a thorough understanding of MTNL's requirements, we believe that Sterlite has been successful in developing a future-ready converged network for MTNL.”

This project would be completed during FY 2007-08 and FY 2008-09.
