Indian Government has decided not to take any telecom equipment from foreign companies, like ZTE, Huawei,Ericsson, Nokia Siemens Networks, Alcatel Lucent and others.
This includes the 3.8 billion USD ,NOFN project (National Optical Fiber Network) by DoT (Department of Telecom). The NOFN project would have brought high-speed internet even to the rural parts of the country. This project is to be done along with BSNL and MTNL.
Government now says that,it will go 100% domestic sourcing on equipment. The companies they selected are Tejas Networks, Prithvi Infosystems, Center for Development of Telematics (C-DoT), VMC Systems, Sai Systems, United Telecoms, and SM Creative.
