Tech Mahindra has teamed up with Cisco Systems to drive the infrastructure modernisation for 5G telecom services using ‘routed optical networking’. The Pune-based firm has also affirmed that the collaboration will be able to simplify the ‘Internet transport networks’ by leveraging on optical and routing technologies to converge services over an IP Infrastructure enabling a high degree of automation.  

Manish Mangal, Global Head of Business, Tech Mahindra, said, “5G connectivity, network intelligence, and edge computing are unleashing a whole new world of opportunities such as the delivery of immersive experience using Metaverse, Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality (AR/VR), among others. The network infrastructure of the future will need to be even more agile and software-driven, to bring such possibilities into life.”  

Tech Mahindra has also revealed that it is investing in both a routed optical networking lab at Bangalore, India and specialised services such as SDN-enabled transport, transport slice and segment routing, enabling customers to experience and operationalise the transformation of 5G transport infrastructure. The company claims that collaboration will enable service providers to merge IP and private-line services onto a single transport layer with standardised pluggable coherent optics.

“As service providers are modernising their 5G networks to offer new services, there is a critical need for the infrastructure to be agile, flexible, and simple. With Tech Mahindra’s expertise in OSS/BSS and Cisco’s routed optical networking portfolio, we can help customers expedite the transformation of their network while providing significant cost savings,” maintains Shaun McCarthy, Vice President, Worldwide Mass-Scale Infrastructure Sales at Cisco.
