Telecom gear manufacturer Tejas Networks announced that it has deployed its TJ1400 family of carrier-class Fiber-to-the-x (FTTx) and Packet Switching Network (PTN) solutions for Tata Tele Business Services (TTBS) in order to deliver high-speed fiber connectivity services to all businesses across the country.
TTBS is a digital solutions provider offering a comprehensive portfolio of data, voice and managed services to enterprises.
"We are pleased that TTBS has selected Tejas for their access network modernization project. This win is a testament to our emergence as a world-class enterprise access & metro vendor of choice among telecom service providers seeking to deliver high-quality and ultra-reliable communications experience to their subscribers. Tejas is committed to a software-enabled transformation approach, which significantly lowers the total cost of ownership and provides the highest value to our customers," Mr. Arnob Roy, COO and executive director of Tejas Networks, stated.
Yogesh Verma, vice president of sales at Tejas Networks, explained, "Our field-proven TJ1400 product will allow TTBS to address the growing demand for enterprise connectivity and enhanced customer experience. We thank TTBS for reposing their faith in Tejas once again, and we look forward to exploring further synergies to enhance end-customer delight."
"Emerging markets, such as India, are witnessing strong take-up rates for fiber broadband services due to attractive supply-side and demand-side conditions in these countries. Cost per premise passed in India is relatively low due to lower labor costs, use of aerial fiber, and higher population density," according to Julie Kunstler, chief analyst for broadband access at Omdia.
Kunstler also shared how Indian consumers express a "strong willingness" to pay for high-quality fiber broadband connections, leading to strong adoption.
"Tejas Networks is an established GPON/XGS-PON vendor in the Asia and Oceania region and has been winning multiple FTTx contracts in India," Kunstler continued.
Tejas Networks is a part of the Tata Group, with Panatone Finvest Ltd. (a subsidiary of Tata Sons Pvt. Ltd.) being the majority shareholder.
