Tejas Networks (BSE: 540595) (NSE: TEJASNET) says it has deployed a nationwide fiber backbone network for Bangladesh Submarine Cable Co. Ltd. (BSCCL). The fiber-optic network, completed in partnership with Telephone Shilpa Sangstha (TSS) Ltd. of Bangladesh, connects the submarine cable landing station at Kuakata in Bangladesh to Dhaka to serve customers of the SEA-ME-WE 5 undersea cable.
The terrestrial fiber cable system, built using the Tejas Networks TJ1600 converged packet-optical transport systems capable of supporting multiple 100-Gbps DWDM channels, features 10 major traffic drop points with countrywide traffic distribution through existing access networks. "The network will significantly boost the availability of reliable high-speed internet services in the country and we are proud to be associated with such a prestigious project for the Government of Bangladesh," said Sanjay Nayak, CEO and MD of Tejas Networks.
TSS, a government-owned telecom company in Bangladesh, manufactured the TJ1600 systems used in the network.
The SEA-ME-WE 5 submarine network connects Bangladesh to several countries in Asia, Africa and Europe, including Singapore, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Djibouti, Turkey, Italy, and France (see "SEA-ME-WE 5 submarine cable backers announce landings").
