BSNL Intros Fibre To Home (FTTH) Services In Hyderabad

In a bid to attract corporate and business customers towrdas its next generation telecom network, India’s National Telecom backbone and largest telecom service operator Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) launches Fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) triple play services in Hyderabad Telecom District (HTD) of Andhra Pradesh circle. The FTTH network has been built on the Gigabyte Passive Optical Technology (GPON) concept.

The FTTH service relies on a Self-Healing Network,which is able to provide seamless triple play service, even in case of damaged of the optical fibre, the information will be re-routed through another line.The system deploys services involving voice, data and video communications irrespective of distance and location. It provides all communication facilities by using broadband and land line network, including Internet access, IPTV, video-on-demand, content-based services, interactive gaming and VoIP services. The services will also support enterprise applications and features such as LAN, VoIP and video conferencing

Mr Rajeev Agrawal, Principal general manager BSNL Hyderabad Telecom District (HTD) stated “We have given demonstrations to about 63 large enterprises including Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) and the State Bank of India, which received overwhelming response. We are currently in the process of going for installations at 35 sites in the HTD and another 50 sites are yet to be identified as part of this project.

He also said that “Instead of installing copper lines for new apartments, we can install FTTH where ever it is feasible. If there is a demand for FTTH in the existing buildings, we will definitely replace the existing copper wire network with FTTH”

    BSNL has a lot of corrupt people working for them. They take money from pvt players and delay work. They have the best GPON network across the Hyderabad, but they do not act and provide FTTH services to home users. Other local providers are providing Fiber Internet of 10 MBPS at the same price that BSNL offers 1 MBPS on copper wire…. Shame on BSNL management.
