India's BSNL Launches Multiplay over ADSL 2+ with UTStarcom

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd. (BSNL) has launched its multiplay broadband

Internet services in India using an ADSL 2+ network supplied by UTStarcom. In March, UTStarcom was awarded a contract from BSNL for the deployment of 1.3 million lines of UTStarcom's iAN-8000 multiservice access node (MSAN) solution in approximately 900 cities throughout India.

UTStarcom said it has served as the turnkey provider for this deployment, with full responsibility for the network design and planning, deployment, and service roll out and maintenance of the network. UTStarcom has also deployed its NetRing 10000 optical transport solution in support of this service for the aggregation of DSL traffic in BSNL's network.
