Sterlite Techologies has been awarded an advance purchase order worth Rs 35 billion to design, build and manage the Indian Navy’s communications network for over a decade through its system integration capabilities. The system integration project will enable the Indian Navy with a digital communications network at par with the most advanced naval forces globally.

Further, this is the first time that an integrated naval communications network at such a scale is being built in India. The Navy’s communications network has been envisioned as a smarter network infrastructure with enhanced throughput, high-quality secure services and ease of network management. The project includes the creation of a high-capacity internet protocol - multi protocol label switching (IP-MPLS) network. On completion, the project will link multiple Indian naval sites and India-administered islands.

Speaking about the project, Dr Anand Agarwal, CEO, Sterlite Tech said, “We are delighted to get an opportunity to play our role in strengthening India’s defence through highly scalable, future-ready networks. Our recent experience of creating an intrusion-proof communication network for the Indian Army in Jammu & Kashmir will be leveraged for the Navy’s communications network. We look forward to delivering this end-to-end strategic network for the Indian Navy with our unique software-to-silicon capabilities.”

On the project highlights, KS Rao, COO and MD (Telecom Products & Services), Sterlite Tech, said, “It is our privilege to work for the Indian defence, and build an integrated communications network at such a scale. As master systems integrator, we will lead the planning and designing of a converged MPLS infrastructure on a two-layered centrally-managed IP backbone. This will provide a secure and reliable digital highway to the Indian Navy for administrative and defence operations.”
