Tejas Networks announced the launch of its innovative, ultra-converged broadband access/edge product family which delivers wireline as well as wireless broadband services from a single integrated platform. The new broadband product family was unveiled by Anshu Prakash, Additional Secretary, Department of Telecom, Government of India at the Mobile World Congress (MWC), Barcelona.
The TJ1400 ultra-converged broadband product family provides unmatched integration of multiple broadband access technologies: gigabit fiber broadband (GPON/NG-PON), fixed wireless broadband (4G/LTE eNodeB upgradable to 5G) and GE/10GE/100GE Business Ethernet services (CE2.0 certified) in highly compact, modular and energy-efficient platforms. In addition, the TJ1400 family also converges advanced packet transport technologies including OTN, PTN/MPLS-TP, Carrier Ethernet and IP to serve as a unified delivery platform for mobile backhaul, wholesale, enterprise and residential broadband services.
Speaking on the occasion, Anshu Prakash said, “We are proud that Tejas Networks has conceptualized, designed and developed the world’s most versatile and disruptive broadband product family through their R&D and technology innovation. Today’s launch of the ultra-converged broadband platform by Tejas Networks is a great example of how R&D-driven Indian telecom equipment companies can create products that are best-in-class in technology, quality and cost-competitiveness, thereby being relevant for both developing as well as developed markets. This contribution of Tejas Networks is very significant in the context of India’s stated objective to become a global telecom equipment hub, especially in the new 5G world.”
Sanjay Nayak, Managing Director and CEO of Tejas Networks said, “We are delighted to announce the launch of our state-of-the-art TJ1400 product family that provides the highest flexibility to any operator wanting to quickly and cost-effectively roll out broadband services on fibre as well as wireless.
