ELCOT is the implementing agency for TamilNadu’s plan for State WAN using OSS
Posted by egovindia on June 24, 2006
TamilNadu had drawn up a massive plan to bring in State Wide Area Network connecting all the district collectorates, Taluk offices, Block offices and Revenue Divisional Offices across the state.
ELCOT is the implementing agency.
Each Collectorate would get between 8mbps and 12 mbps depending on the number of telecom operators in that district. The telecom operators were given right of use of public roads and other public areas to lay the cable by the Government on the condition that each operator would provide 2mbps line free of cost wherever the operator's OFC lines pass through Government offices.
Each other office in the district would get at least 2 mbps connectivity.
The tender for the requirement had already been floated.
Tender opening is slated on the 22nd of June 06.
The entire technical specifications for the State WAN had been made OSS compliant.
