Coriant, a global supplier of SDN-enabled end-to-end transport solutions, has recently announced that it has been selected by Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL), one of India's leading telecommunications companies, to expand its existing Managed Leased Line Network (MLLN). Coriant said that its 8100 Managed Access System will further enhance BSNL’s ability to meet the increased and flexible bandwidth needs of its financial services and enterprise customers. The new BSNL network will also utilize its Intelligent Network Manager (INM) system.
According to Coriant, BSNL’s network now boasts one of the world’s largest installed base of Coriant 8100 data access products. The network expansion is part of BSNL’s continued effort to support new business-critical applications and continuity strategies for its customers, added Coriant.
Mr. M Aruna Kumar, General Manager, Core Network Planning (CNP), BSNL India
The MLLN is the most reliable and profitable part of our business, catering primarily to the financial services industry. Network requirements in this sector are incredibly complex as they need hundreds of connections and must support rapid trading and robust disaster recovery. That meant choosing the right supplier was a business critical decision. With a proven history of delivering high-quality networking solutions and world-class service and support, Coriant met all our key requirements for this network expansion initiative.
Mikko Lavanti, Executive Vice President of Sales, Coriant
The ever-increasing demand for greater network capacity is nowhere more apparent than in the financial services industry. Financial communications services require flexible and resilient connectivity, and always-on performance to meet mission-critical business demands. Our 8100 Managed Access System will allow BSNL to continue to deliver reliable broadband services to its customers, while at the same time enable them to expand and seamlessly scale their high-capacity service offerings in a manageable and secure environment.
