Tejas Networks bets big on Digital India
Bengaluru-based telecom equipment company Tejas Networks has developed optical and data networking products that will be used for projects for ‘Digital India’ as well as for building high speed data networks globally.

Talking to Deccan Herald, Tejas Networks MD and CEO Sanjay Nayak said, “Tejas is one of the vendors who is supplying GPON (Gigabit-capable Passive Optical Networks) equipment to the Government of India’s initiative in building the national optical fibre network — Bharatnet, which plans to connect 2.5 lakh villages in the country through optical fibre and is a part of Digital India.”

“This project is being funded by the Universal Service Obligation Fund (USOF) of the government,” he added.

Over 150 countries across the world believe that the government can take optical fibre to villages, and can build high speed communication infrastructure, Nayak said.

“These data highways can provide many services to remote places, such as telemedicine, e-education, e-governance and ecommerce, among others, and can transform the economy. Worldwide,​ it has been accepted that often the amount of bandwidth needed is inversely proportional with a level of literacy and hence even people in villages will benefit from high bandwidth connectivity,” he added.
