    Post BSNL to offer 8 mbps connectivity soon

    BSNL is in the process of commissioning of a world class, multi-gigabit, multi-protocol, convergent IP infrastructure through National Internet Backbone-II (NIB-II), that will provide convergent services through the same backbone and broadband access network. The Broadband service will be available on DSL technology (on the same copper cable that is used for connecting telephone), on a countrywide basis spanning 198 cities.

    In terms of infrastructure for broadband services NIB-II would put India at par with more advanced nations. The services that would be supported includes always-on broadband access to the Internet for residential and business customers, Content based services, Video multicasting, Video-on-demand and Interactive gaming, Audio and Video conferencing, IP Telephony, Distance learning, Messaging: plain and feature rich, Multi-site MPLS VPNs with Quality of Service (QoS) guarantees. The subscribe will be able to access the above services through Subscriber Service Selection System (SSSS) portal.

    Key Objectives
    To provide high speed Internet connectivity (upto 8 Mbps)
    To provide Virtual Private Network (VPN) service to the broadband customers
    To provide dial VPN service to MPLS VPN customers.
    To provide multicast video services, video-on-demand, etc. through the Broadband Remote Access Server (BRAS).
    To provide a means to bill for the aforesaid services by either time-based or volume-based billing. It shall provide the customer with the option to select the services through web server
    To provide both pre-paid and post paid broadband services
    Technical Capability of the Backbone The Broadband Service will be given through the state of the art Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) based IP Infrastructure, which is designed to provide reliable routes to cover all possible destinations within and outside the country. Layer 1 of the network will consist of a high speed Backbone comprising of 24 powerful Core Routers connected with high speed 2.5 Gbps(STM-16) links. The routers are located on the national DWDM network interfacing at STM-16 optical level to provide for high transmission speeds. What advantage does MPLS have over other Technologies? MPLS VPN is a technology that allows a service provider like BSNL to have complete control over parameters that are critical to offering its customers service guarantees with regard to bandwidth throughputs, latencies and availability. Services available through Broadband
    High speed Internet Access: This is the always-on Internet access service with speed ranging from 256 kbps to 8 Mbps.
    Bandwidth on Demand: This will facilitate customer to change bandwidth as per his / her requirement. For example a customer with 256 kbps can change to 1 Mbps during the video Conferencing session.
    Multicasting: This is to provide video multicast services for application in distance education, telemedicine etc
    Dial VPN Service: This service allows remote users to access their private network securely over the NIB-II infrastructure.
    Video and Audio Conferencing:
    Content based Services: Like Video on Demand, Interactive Gaming, Live and time shifted TV

    i believe what 8mbps connectivity means is that bsnl is launching IPTV service for which 8mbps line is a must.now bsnl will be able to provide IPTV,broadband & phone service on the same line but i seriously doubt bsnl is going to increase speeds upto 8mbps for broadband.

    no point in having a 8mbps connection with 600mb download limit in a month when you can download 600mb in 10 minutes.airtel offer is just a "we are the first to provide 8mbps" show.
