Airtel is looking for 25 per cent growth for its back-end enterprise service in e-Governance projects in India. Currently, Airtel Enterprise Services (AES) is contributing 30 percent to overall Bharti Airtel.
Airtel is looking to introduce enhancements of its managed network services portfolio. The company is planning to launch a variety of new products aimed at the convergence of voice and data, and roll out of new value-added and wholesale products aimed at growing the mobility market. In the next few months, Airtel would also introduce new Internet and international data products to meet the specific needs of different segments of corporate customers. The company is planning to enhance its VSAT and conferencing product portfolio. To promote the voice-side, Airtel plans to introduce a number of value-added and application-based services for its fixed line, mobile and international calling corporates. The company is hoping to replicate one of its project with the Gujarat Government in West Bengal. Airtel is setting up telecom infrastructure to connect 13,716 village panchayats and common service centres in Gujarat. The project has already implemented in 1000 sites in Gujarat. Once connected, the panchayat offices or e-Grams are expected to form a powerful socio-economic network supporting information dissemination and facilitating e-Governance initiatives in the state. The project will link 13,716 village panchayats and common service centres located in the remotest corners of the state and expected to ensure cost-effective video, voice and data services in the areas of agriculture, e-Governance, health and education.
