The Mumbai International Airport has selected Nortel to deploy one of the most extensive and comprehensive IP communications networks in the airport.
Plans are afoot to consolidate the majority of its data, telephony, and video systems onto a converged wired and wireless IP-based network powered by Nortel enterprise solutions and its Metro Ethernet-based Provider Backbone Bridging (PBB) and Provider Backbone Transport (PBT) technologies. Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) will provide systems integration for the converged triple-play communications upgrade project. The CSIA network infrastructure will be based on the Nortel Metro Ethernet Network portfolio's Optical Metro 5200 DWDM multi-service platform and Metro Ethernet Routing Switch 8600 platform with PBB and PBT solutions. CSIA will also receive a comprehensive suite of Nortel's enterprise solutions including unified communications from the Nortel and Microsoft Innovative Communications Alliance and Nortel converged IP Telephony solutions, including the Communication Server 1000 new release 5.0, to further improve service reliability, enable better security for VoIP calls, and simplify deployment and management.
