Indigenous telecom gear manufacturer Tejas Networks yesterday announced that it had bagged a purchase order of $13 million from a leading telecommunications service provider based in South East Asia. The company however refrained from naming the service provider.
“We are delighted to be chosen for this prestigious project that will enable a sizable rural population to experience the tangible benefits of high-speed, reliable and affordable wireless internet for the first time. Tejas was selected because of our cutting-edge products, as well as our vast experience in timely rollouts of large-scale broadband access and optical transmission networks around the globe, including Government of India’s BharatNet and Railway WiFi projects.”
