The government has given clearance for establishing department wide area networks (Department WAN) in Kerela, connecting various core department offices at Public Office and Vikas Bhavan and linking those networks with the Kerala State Wide Area Network (K-SWAN) – the common network infrastructure the state had set up for implementing various e-governance initiatives.
Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has been entrusted with the task of networking the existing local area networks in these major office complexes and establishing a Department WAN. Kerala State IT Mission shortlisted TCS for the work. The cost for design, supply, installation, operation and maintenance of optical fibre cable (OFC)-based Department WAN is estimated Rs 1.86 crore. Department WAN will consist of a network of existing local area networks (LANs) that connects various government departments.
Major offices that come under the Department WAN network include public works department, civil supplies, excise and land revenue departments. Land use board, local fund audit department, panchayat department, department of urban affairs, commercial taxes department, directorate of industries and commerce, directorate of social welfare, directorate of handlooms, directorate of fisheries, directorate of tribal welfare, directorate of sainik welfare, directorate of animal husbandry and directorate of collegiate education will also be included in this network.
