India taps former Nokia Siemens technology for 5G IoT

By Nick Flaherty at www.flaherty.co.uk

India’s leading Telecom Operator Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) is working with Coriant to chart a path to 5G and Internet of Things (IoT) in the country.

Coriant was formed from the combination of Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) Optical Networks, Tellabs, and Sycamore Networks and will work with BSNL on new network architectures and services using 5G, IoT, SDN/NFV, and mobile edge computing technologies.

As part of its strategic collaboration, BSNL and Coriant will work together to develop 5G and IoT use cases such as rural connectivity, connected healthcare, industrial automation, public safety, video surveillance, energy, and agriculture. The deal also covers  research programs, knowledge sharing, and workshops focused on the latest networking trends and hyperscale architectures designed to support the scalable, ultra-low latency commercial 5G services and applications.

“We continue to focus on bringing our customers across India the latest innovations in communications technologies that enrich their personal and work lives,” said Shri Anupam Shrivastava at BSNL. “5G represents an enormous leap forward in capacity and throughput speeds, and we are pleased to team with our long-term technology partner Coriant to tap into these capabilities and explore real-world use cases for next-generation services and applications.”
“BSNL’s vision aligns nicely with our strategy of driving innovation in purpose-built 5G solutions and architectures,” said Shaygan Kheradpir, CEO and Chairman of Coriant. “We look forward to our joint work and the opportunity to help BSNL fast track development toward a 5G and IoT future and bring the value of these technologies to India and its citizens.”
