BSNL, Coriant team up for 5G push in India

08 Sep 2017

Indian state-owned telecoms operator BSNL has signed a MoU with US-based Coriant to chart the path to 5G and IoT in the country.

In a statement, Coriant said it will help BSNL to lay foundation for innovation in network architectures and services leveraging 5G, IoT, SDN/NFV and mobile edge computing technologies.

“5G represents an enormous leap forward in capacity and throughput speeds, and we are pleased to team with our long-term technology partner Coriant to tap into these capabilities and explore real-world use cases for next-generation services and applications," BSNL CMD Shri Anupam Shrivastava said.

Under the terms of MoU, BSNL and Coriant will cooperate to develop 5G and IoT use cases such as rural connectivity, connected healthcare, industrial automation, public safety, video surveillance, energy and agriculture.

The agreement also includes research programs, knowledge sharing, and workshops focused on the latest networking trends and hyperscale architectures designed to support the delivery of commercial 5G services and applications.

The partnership with Coriant indicates BSNL’s latest push in 5G. Earlier this year BSNL struck a partnership with Nokia to build a 5G-ready network.
