India’s Tejas to supply networking products to Afghanistan

Asia Consultancy Group (ACG), a leading independent private company providing telecommunications infrastructure and managed and engineering services across Afghanistan, has signed a multi-year contract with Indian networking products company Tejas Networks.

As part of this contract, Tejas will supply its state of the art 100G-600G-capable DWDM/OTN and PTN products to establish a high-capacity national backbone and packet access network in Afghanistan. The aim is to implement an agile and future-proof network that can adapt well to the explosive growth in Afghanistan’s mobile, broadband and cloud services markets expected in the coming years.

ACG says that, after a rigorous evaluation process, it selected Tejas’s TJ1600 Metro and Long-haul DWDM/OTN products and TJ1400 PTN products for this build-out. The company says it was impressed by their scalability, extreme flexibility and operational simplicity when compared to other competitive offerings in the market. 

The TJ1600 DWDM/OTN products have an innovative software-defined hardware architecture that enables next-generation wholesale telecom carriers like ACG to scale up their network capacity in cost-effective increments and align their capex investments in line with their services and revenue growth.

Tejas develops and sells networking products to telecommunications service providers, internet service providers, utilities, defence and government entities in over 75 countries.
