Oil and Gas ImageFibre Based Networked Surveillance Solution Operational at ONGC's Uran Facilities
Drawing a leaf from our last offering we present you one of Commtel's most ambitious projects ever, the ONGC- CCTV Implementation at Uran. The project which saw cameras being installed at various locations and monitoring stations, including some extremely hazardous zones, has finally achieved the 'successfully completed' tag. It took six months of concerted effort from Commtel, overcoming all the possible challenges to install, integrate, commission and eventually accomplish this vast project. The trust and faith that ONGC had on Commtel helped its cause in establishing the entire network infrastructure.

Harnessing IOCL's network infrastructure through valued design engineering
Our long term association with IOCL saw us being awarded another project for installing an integrated Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) system, by deploying CCTV cameras for surveillance and Ethernet Switches at its various Repeater cum cathodic protection stations of Chennai - Trichy - Madurai Pipeline (CTMPL). DVTEL IP PTZ color camera along with IR (Infrared) Illuminator and Network Video Management System were provided at various areas such as main gate, periphery sections and scrap yard located at different junctions of the pipeline network. The entire network system comes with different functional benefits, such as- live viewing, Archiving (Recording), Video retrieve and review, CCTV camera network expansion in future, easy upgradation of NVMS along with camera license.


Power ImageAPGENCO - Empowering the Power Generators in record time
APGENCO awarded Commtel a major turnkey telecommunication network solution for its Dr. NTTPS previously called VTPS IV stage. Commtel as a prime solution provider was offered the project directly from APGENCO, primarily on its long term expertise in similar work executions. The scope of the project involved procuring, supplying, installation and commissioning of Nokia 8Mbps PDH OLTE, Second Order Multiplexer, 2Mbps Primary order multiplexer, Tele Protection Equipment along with other requisite accessories. 1+1 optical path at both the stations for voice and data communication. The TPS64 provided, has an excellent performance characteristic to meet the most demanding security and dependability requirements for Tele protection. Commtel won accolades from high ranks at APGENCO for executing and completing the entire assignment within 10 days of receipt of Purchase Order.

Commtel elevates the way digital communication performs for DELHI TRANSCO LIMITED
DTL wanted to build a dedicated optical fiber based digital communication system to meet the optimum operation, maintenance and safety requirements of the telecom networks. Commtel thus offered Gigabit Ethernet managed switch to construct the transmission backbone network across the length of 47Km. Transmission backbone systems with integrated Ethernet Managed Switch, VOIP devices, serial servers and E1 to LAN converters were supplied, installed and commissioned by Commtel. The offered, Gigabit Ethernet Switch (Layer 2 switch) was such that it interfaced with the existing Nokia make Radio equipment, Nokia make PDH Equipment and Fujitsu make SDH equipment.


Railway ImageVNR - RAIL VIKAS NIGAM LIMITED, Commtel's another success story in the making
Metro Railway VNR has been awarded a Telecommunication system project by RVNL for its new Broad Gauge line of South Central Railway's Guntakal division. Commtel comes into picture as the primary and official supplier of Nokia Siemens Networks multiplexers to VNR for its telecommunication network setup for RVNL. The existing South Central Railway Guntakal Division has more than 75 Nokia Multiplexers, so the integration is natural and time tested. Moreover RVNL chose quality over price and showed trust in Commtel, a long time Railways' services partner, which in fact is also the valued Sales Partner of Nokia Siemens Networks equipments in India for the past 11 years. Extreme benefits of providing high Reliability and Redundancy when compared to other Multiplexers also augured well both for RVNL and Commtel.

WESTERN RAILWAY (Mumbai Division) - A leap of faith for Commtel
Western Railway awarded Commtel a Turnkey Telecommunication System project for Supply, Installation, Wiring, Testing and Commissioning of 2/34 Higher Order Mux Equipment in microwave repeater stations. WR has shown tremendous faith in our capabilities, the testimony to which is the project being won by Commtel. Commtel has offered Nokia Siemens Networks 34 Mbps 16E-1 PDH type Higher Order Multiplexer equipment suitable for interfacing with Microwave Equipment. The highpoint of using Nokia Siemens Networks- Higher Order Mux offered by Commtel lies in the fact that it can be configured as a Skip Mutliplexer also supporting all the functional applications of Microwave repeaters at the same time.

New Associations

New Associations ImageA matter of pride and perspective for Commtel to associate with BHABHA ATOMIC RESEARCH CENTRE
Commtel feels proud with its link up with BARC, awarding supply, I&C of Industrial Grade Gigabit Ethernet Fibre Optic Communication System. This advanced communication system would provide Integrated access control and monitoring of field stations from Central monitoring stations. The transport network is made up of Microsens Gigabit Ethernet Switches and Microsens network platform system (Network Management System). The offered Industrial Ethernet Switches are designed to operate in plant floor environments and are housed in rugged industrial style enclosures using D-rail or panel mounting. Added benefit of using industrial Ethernet switch is redundant power inputs, increases network bandwidth and provides network determination for industrial control applications providing the most cost effective solution for industrial environments.

BRAHMANI RIVER PELLETS LIMITED gets communications solutions at its advanced best by Commtel
BRPL has awarded Commtel a turnkey telecommunication project for their Tanto Jajpur Iron Concentrate Pipeline in the state of Orissa. The 217KM long pipeline will be having a dedicated optical fiber based digital telecommunication system of Nokia Siemens Networks' Surpass Series, with Network Management system, IP EPABX system from NEC, IP based video conferencing system of Aethra and VSAT communication system of Hughes. The next generation SDH system will be based on Multi Service Transport Platform (MSTP) providing Ethernet Services for fulfilling end user functional requirements. The Ethernet-over-SDH (EoS) technology deploys GFP, VCAT & LCAS schemes for realizing efficient, effective, scalable and fault tolerant LAN extension among the stations.

Turning a New Leaf

Knowledge dissemination through meaningful associations

Commtel's presentation at 'IEEE ANTS 2009 at IIT Delhi' highlighted the need for telecom to harp on "Networks Beyond Telco".

In one of the proud moments for Commtel our Managing Director, Mr. Shriprakash R. Pandey was invited at this technological convention at IIT Delhi. He spoke at length about the technological gap which existed between the tried and tested communication mediums. While addressing a packed auditorium including some of the brightest brains from the country and different parts of the globe, he urged the global research community to fill this supposed gap. He thus elucidated on sector specific applications research, which would lead us to a better tomorrow. Some of its key benefits were also elucidated by Dr. Upendra Manyam- Head of Emerging Technology at Commtel, in another presentation at JIMS, on "Role of Optical Networks in Advancement of Communication"
