SIS to roll out video telephony for BSNL

BSNL has partnered with IT firm Sai Info Systems to provide video telephony services, which will be available from June next year. “The video telephony service will be launched in Gujarat this month, following which it will be extended to Northern and Western parts of the country by April 2010,” said SIS Chairman and Managing Director Sunil Kakkad, according to Economic Times. SIS will provide equipment and back-end services, while BSNL will support connectivity. Kakkad said video telephony has not become commercially viable due to non-availability of bandwidth and affordable equipment. “SIS and BSNL plan to make the service as a basic telephone service, phasing out the landline in existing form,” he said. “Through this service, we intend to launch the triple play services (voice, video and data) on our network and enrich the entire communication experience of the customer,” BSNL CMD Kuldeep Goyal said.
