MTNL invites bids to set up IT network

After bagging the deal to set up the communications IT network for the Common Wealth Games, MTNL on Friday invited bids from global and Indian companies to build this network. MTNL has said the contract to set up this infrastructure in Delhi is worth more than Rs 400 crore.

Post the Common Wealth Games, MTNL will use this infrastructure to provide Delhi with a secure dedicated communications network that will allow the city to host global meets. This is because, large global meets like that of the G20 requires host cities to have secure, dedicated communication and IT networks that can be used by the delegates of visiting countries.

In a notification on its website to all potential bidders, MTNL said: “We intend to set up a world class communications infrastructure to meet the Common Wealth Games 2010 requirements. The proposed network shall be a converged (MPLS-based IP Infrastructure) network, which shall be a 2-layer centrally managed internet (IP) backbone network, designed to provide reliable routes to cover all possible destinations.”

“Along with the complexity of the application and service delivery, there are further challenges of making sure a very high degree of reliability of the operations... On top of everything, there are requirements around security threats to make sure that network runs without any outage during the games event,” the notification on the is website added.

Importantly, MTNL has also specified that the contract will be given only to those IT and telecom hardware companies who have set up and managed similar facilities at one Olympic, Common Wealth or FIFA (world cup) in the past 10 years. Bidders have also been asked to furnish proof of having prior experience in providing these services.

Besides, MTNL has also categorically stated that only those firms that have earned profits over the last two years and have registered revenues of over Rs 500 each annually during this period can bid for the contract. “In case of subsidiaries of foreign firms, for the purpose of financial strength, turn over of the parent company will also be considered. The Audited Balance sheets/ annual reports in support of above should be submitted along with the bid,” the notification added.

Hardware firms must also show proof of having installed equipment that will be part of this contract such as routers to mobile operators in a minimum of 60 locations, the bid document adds. The deadline for the submission of bids is October 27, 2009.
