"These technology investments are aimed at making us more competitive in the services we offer across enterprise and consumer segments going forward. Cisco was the right choice for us with their proven expertise and track record over the years. Our new core backbone infrastructure will enable us to extend our pioneering leadership and meet ever increasing customer demand, now and in the future."

Added P J Nath, executive president, Sify enterprise services: "The migration of our core network infrastructure to an IP NGN enables us to offer more sophisticated services for voice, video and data, with higher levels of service quality for customers. With this investment, Sify has once again set the standard for the data telecom services industry in India."

The Cisco CRS-1 Carrier Routing System, a core component of the Cisco IP-NGN architecture, offers capabilities, reliability and scalability required for service providers to offer any-play services.
