Transport Trio on India Shortlist

Ray Le Maistre

7:55 AM -- Any major optical transport network plan is always worth noting but it's always more interesting when the network in question is a greenfield network for an operator with major aspirations.

That's what we have in India currently, where Reliance Industries Ltd. (RIL) -- the only company to hold Long Term Evolution (LTE) licenses that cover the whole of the country -- appears to be in the final stages of choosing its transport infrastructure equipment suppliers for a US$400 million-plus investment.

The 4G operator has reportedly shortlisted three vendors. Find out who they are by checking out this Light Reading India article: Optical Crunch Time at RIL.
