Tejas Networks Builds Telecom Centre Of Excellence In Kerala

Tejas Networks Monday said it is setting up a telecom centre of excellence in Kerala to develop next generation telecom technologies. The state government and the technology firm have already signed an agreement regarding this.

Tejas CoE will focus on training, skills development and mentoring of college students, young entrepreneurs and high-potential electronics startups in the state. Senior technologists from Tejas will work closely with the faculty of leading engineering institutions in the state to develop a futuristic, industry-oriented telecommunication training and certification program.

As part of the partnership, Tejas Networks also proposes to set up an advanced networking test-bed for cutting-edge technologies such as terabit-scale optical communications, gigabit-scale broadband access, 5G and software-defined networking, the company said in a statement.

“We welcome Tejas Networks to Kerala, India’s first digital state with the highest e-literacy rate in the country. As India’s most successful deep technology product startup, Tejas is uniquely qualified to mentor high-technology entrepreneurs and startups in Kerala and help jumpstart the electronics industry in the state. Tejas Networks is a great example of the fact that it is indeed possible to design and manufacture innovative, high-quality world-class products from India and I was truly impressed to see the wide range of complex electronics products that the company has developed and displayed at the CoE today,” said M. Sivasankar, Secretary IT, Government of Kerala.

Sanjay Nayak, Managing Director and CEO of Tejas Networks said, “We are honoured to be associated as a telecom knowledge partner for Kerala, which has gained its well-deserved reputation as a leader in the ICT sector through its forward looking policies and digital initiatives.  As a home-grown high-technology company, over the last two decades, we have been investing significant resources in indigenous R&D and have generated valuable IPR within the country. Kerala has emerged as a thriving ecosystem of talented entrepreneurs, startups and academic institutions and we are happy to share our first-hand experience, capabilities and expertise in the telecom arena to help nurture the local ICT industry in Kerala.”
