Government-aided autonomous R&D telecom technology centre Centre for Development of Telematics (C-DOT) transferred the indigenously developed Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) technology to Indian telecommunications manufactures in the public and private domain.

"GPON technology is the pivotal component required for broadband connectivity over optical fibre," the agency said.

According to Kapil Sibal, union telecoms & IT minister, "The technology is targeted for fibre expansion in the country to fulfil the requirements of major national programmes such as NOFN (National Optical Fibre Network), SWAN (State-Wide-Area Network) connectivity, Broadband connectivity in rural, North-East, tribal areas, as well as expansion of networks of defence, railways networks on optical fibre and many other strategic networks."

"GPON can be used to provide a future proof broadband solution to village panchayats and take the benefits of e-Education, e-Governance, e-Commerce and e-Medicine etc., in fact a whole gamut of e-services, to our rural and urban populace with all its attendant empowerments and multiplier affects leading to a significant growth in the GDP," the Government said in its statement.

The technology, which has been tested, validated, field evaluated, is currently operational in the BSNL Network at Ajmer, Rajasthan. It is also being transferred to seven public and private manufacturers, including ITI, BEL, VMC Systems, United Telecoms, Sai InfoSystem, SM Creative Electronics.
