Tulip Telecom bags managed services contract from DEITy

NEW DELHI, May 23: Enterprise data services provider Tulip Telecom today said it has been empanelled as a facility management services provider for a Science and Technology body under the IT Department, along with another major IT firm.
“This adds another large-scale project to our managed services portfolio for the government segment. The empanelment is expected to fetch business in excess of Rs 425 crore in revenue over five years for the two empanelled companies,” Tulip Telecom     President (Enterprise Business) Rajesh Duggal told PTI.
He added the company expects to carry out over 50 per cent of the work of the overall project.
As part of the empanelment, Tulip has already received its first orders totalling to Rs 132 crore over a period of five years.
“We will continue to receive the remaining orders over the current quarter,” he said.
As the chosen service provider for the project, Tulip will be largely responsible for network management, IT infrastructure management, links commissioning and management amongst other day-to-day IT and network operations for various government departments.
In addition to this, Tulip will also be responsible for fault management, WAN management and the overall network management for the networks implemented and managed by the institution.
Tulip would also be required to assist in managing all the network facilities created at their disaster recovery site at Hyderabad, state headquarters (SHQ), district headquarters (DHQ), tehsil headquarters and bhawans in their respective states.
“An order of such large scale and value will require Tulip to deploy close to 1,400-plus resources across the country. There is a significant synergy in terms of skill set required with that of the existing team that Tulip has on board,” he said. (PTI)
