Valiant Communications will be offering its products for the forthcoming BharatNet, Power Grid, and Railways projects.
Valiant noted that currently only foreign made products of similar specifications were being offered in the BharatNet project. The company feels that there is a large opportunity for indigenosuly designed and manufactured Routers, Firewalls, and IEC 61850-3 compliant Ethernet Switches.
“Valiant is addressing a very large opportunity for supply of indigenously designed and manufactured communications, transmission and cyber security equipment for Bharatnet, Power Grid and Railway projects. This opportunity takes more importance due to the foresight of our Honorable Prime Minister Shri Modi Ji for implementing Government policies to promote Make in India and Atmanirbhar Bharat for the manufacturing and MSME sector in India. Valiant is also offering its unique Unified Network Management System for the secure remote configuration and management of its equipment that will help scale the deployment of its products across the network on a nationwide scale. We have already started the export of these products to various countries, across different sectors”.
