HCL Infosystems has deployed Defence Communication Network (DCN) – the first tri-Service communication and IT network of the Armed Forces.
Premkumar Seshadri, executive vice chairman and managing director, HCL Infosystems, said the network has been entirely designed and developed in India.
“We have made significant investments in creating defence communication technology practice, involving design of critical technology systems for military communication,” Premkumar Seshadri said.
The DCN is the largest single satellite network in the Indian Defense Forces, spread across the country. This integrated communication architecture between the Army, Navy and Air Force bolsters the prowess of the Defence forces during both critical operations and rescue missions. DCN is a major step towards ensuring Network Centricity across the three Services, IDS and SFC.
HCL Infosystems has worked with the Indian Air Force to deploy The Air Force Network (AFNet) and AFCEL (Air Force Cellular Network). AFNet interlinks major installations throughout the country on a high bandwidth network. It incorporates latest traffic transportation technology in the form of Internet Protocol.
HCL Infosystems has also worked on UIDAI project.
