The products, which includes long distance WiFi system, solar-powered WiFi system, 100 Gbps optical fibre cable (OFC) link and C-DOT’s next generation network (NGN) in MTNL network, will be launched by Minister of Communication and IT, Ravi Shankar Prasad on July 6 as a part of the Digital India week.
The long distance WiFi system :
It is capable of extending WiFi and IP connectivity to the remote parts of India in a cost-effective and power-efficient manner, and is capable of providing 100 Mbps broadband speed.
The solar-powered WiFi system :
It is designed for outdoor environments and inaccessible terrains and operates in bands of 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz. It can also be used for backhaul link for WiFi hotspots, cellular base stations and base station controllers, ATMs and database servers.
The 100 Gbps OFC link :
It will accommodate the increasing demand for superior bandwidth, high speed and power efficiency, C-DOT’s cost-effective next generation network (NGN) solution addresses the need of the changing telecom scenario and enables telecom firms to make a smooth transition from legacy time division multiplexing (TDM) technology to advanced VoIP Telecom technology.
A successful trial of the developed live network has been done for 1,000 landline connections of legacy PSTN technologies to C-DOT’s IMS-compliant NGN technology.
With this successful trial, MTNL can launch various services like voice, video and data, through various access based on IP. Also, it now possible to migrate its existing 3.5 million landline subscribers of MTNL to IP based network.
