Swedish operator Teracom has bagged an order worth INR 700 million from state-owned Indian operator BSNL to supply half a million modems, which enable computer data transmission over phone lines, reports PTI. The company would provide modems to BSNL, which is looking at ramping up its broadband subscriber base in a big way. Teracom will provide 'ADSL 2+ modems', a three-in-one device that combines the function of a high-speed DSL modem, wireless access point, and ethernet router. The company said its modems will enable BSNL subscribers access data, VoIP and video facility at speeds of up to 24 Mbps, with option of Wi-Fi, or wireless connectivity. Teracom has to provide the modems to BSNL within four months. Earlier, it had supplied over 720,000 modems worth INR 940 million to BSNL. The company has also established a network of after-sale service centres.
