SETTING UP EXCLUSIVE OPTICAL BACKBONE OF NETWORK FOR SPECTRUM
With its network for spectrum project as an exclusive optical fiber based nationwide communication network for the country’s defence services, a mission of utmost importance to the security of the nation, ITI scripted a financial turnaround story for itself. From financial year 2002-03, ITI has struggled to contain its losses. However, through a combination of austerity measures and rival package, the company has gradually reduced its losses and is well on its way to be out of the red. Its project to lay a secure, multi-service and multi-protocol converged next generation network for the armed forces played a major role in reviving ITI’s goodwill as well as its bottomline. The project was based on exclusive and dedicated tri-services optical transport backbone. ITI’s expertise has manifested again in the ongoing project for the armed forces.
