Indian op deploys WiMAX

Indian operator BSNL said Friday it has tapped Aperto Networks to deliver WiMAX base stations and subscriber units for the deployment of a wireless broadband network across six cities and four rural areas in India.

The six initial cities getting the WiMAX equipment are Kolkata in West Bengal, Bangalore in Karnataka, Chennai in Tamil Nadu, Ahmedabad in Gujarat, Hyderabad in Andhra Pradesh, and Pune in Maharastra. The deployment, which will also cover four rural districts in the State of Haryana, is planned for completion in January.

The WiMAX network will enable BSNL to offer enterprise customers new services including MPLS, VPN, leased line, as well as VoIP, telemedicine, e-education, e-governance, and e-commerce in remote areas.
