Digital India : India’s Department of Telecommunications owned C-DOT to launch WiFi and NGN products across India
C-DOT, the premier R&D institute of DoT is planning to launch – Long Distance WiFi System, Solar Powered WiFi System, 100 Gbps OFC Link and C-DOT Next Generation Network in MTNL Network during the Digital India Week. These would be launched in the presence of Ravi Shankar Prasad, Minister of Communications and IT on 6th July.
C-DOT’s Long Distance WiFi Solution comprehensively includes wireless platform that has the ability of spreading out the WiFi and IP connectivity to the remote and inhospitable areas of India in a cost-effective and power-efficient manner. It is also capable of providing 100 Mbps broadband speed to users of distant locations. This technology is backed by management, sturdy operations and maintenance software and is provided with a solar powered green energy source.
The Solar Powered WiFi System is created for remote areas and outdoor and operates in license-exempt bands of 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz. The system is designed to work in rough conditions and inconsistent input voltages. It can also be used for backhaul link for WiFi hotspots, base station controllers and cellular base stations, database servers and ATMs.
The solution is also is convenient to spread out last mile wireless connectivity beyond panchayat that are being linked to Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) technology developed by C-DOT, which forms the main support of Bharatnet, the National Optical Fiber Network (NOFN).
The 100 Gbps OFC Link called D-DOT Suteevra will accommodate the increasing demand for superior bandwidth, power efficiency and high power in the intense competitive market scenario. Where it is hard to find PC port of less than 1 GbE speed in this fast moving digital world, Suteevra carries valuable significance in designing enabling infrastructure for making high-speed user experience available anytime, anywhere.
The solution has the ability to serve numerous protocols and applications ranging from the data, storage, TDM, ATM and video networks. A versatile mini 100G OTN (Optical Transport Network) platform, Suteevra is based on the recent standards that offers the ease of being deployed in both brownfield and greenfield OTN networks.
C-DOT’s cost-effective Next Generation Network (NGN) solution takes care of the need of changing telecom scenario and assists the telecom firms to make a smooth transition from legacy TDM (Time Division Multiplexing) technology to advanced VoIP technology. The technology has different kinds of components of software and hardware and they are all natively designed by C-DOT.
C-DOT said that a successful test of the developed live network has been done for 1,000 landline
connections of legacy public switched telephone network (PSTN) technologies to C-DOT’s IMS-compliant NGN technology.
According to it, the successful trial will allow MTNL to launch various services (data, voice and video) through various access network based on IP. Also, it now possible to move its existing 3.5 million landline subscribers of MTNL to IP based network, it added.
