As part of the deployment, Hughes would connect the UBI network to its managed services NOC in Gurgaon and set up a dedicated 24x7 technical support helpdesk to network assistance to UBI, a company release said here. Valued at Rs 2.2 crore with a contract period of five years, the project was being carried out in two phases with the first phase already under completion. The contract includes the deployment of a turnkey network, which encompasses system integration, satellite bandwidth and network management.
The network was built on a satellite based VPN technology and consists of a central NOC that was connected to the various branches/ATMs of the UBI using satellite as a medium. The UBI's data centres were connected to the central managed services NOC of Hughes using terrestrial links, the release added.
