Tejas Networks to build Afghanistan’s National Optical Transport Network

Tejas Networks has signed a multi-year contract with Asia Consultancy Group (ACG), a leading independent private company providing telecommunications infrastructure, managed & engineering services across Afghanistan, for building Afghanistan’s high capacity National Optic Transport Network.

As part of this contract, Tejas will supply 100G-600G capable DWDM/OTN and PTN products to establish a high-capacity national backbone and packet access network in Afghanistan.

“After a rigorous evaluation process, we selected Tejas’s TJ1600 Metro and Long-haul DWDM/OTN products and TJ1400 PTN products for this important build-out. We are truly impressed by their scalability, extreme flexibility and operational simplicity when compared to other competitive offerings in the market today,” said Dr. Dzung Nguyen, CTO, ACG.

“We look forward to working closely with the Tejas Networks team to ensure that we fully leverage the advanced capabilities of their products and implement an agile and future-proof network that can adapt well to the explosive growth in Afghanistan’s mobile, broadband and cloud services markets in the coming years,” added Nguyen.

Sanjay Nayak, Managing Director and CEO, Tejas Networks said, “Our 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. Our partnership with ACG exemplifies our emergence as a trusted global supplier of a full range of optical transmission products for access, metro and core networks.”

Yogesh Verma, Vice President for MENA region at Tejas Networks said, “We are excited to support ACG in realizing a scalable and robust optical infrastructure that enables profitable transport and delivery of high-quality bandwidth services to Afghan operators and businesses at the lowest cost per bit.”
