Tikona to use Telenet’s 4G-enabled Outdoor CPEs

TikonaDigital Networks is preparing to launch its 4G services by the end of thisyear. The company will be focusing on indoor broadband services for homes and offices.

Tikona’s Association with Telenet -

Tikona has selected Telenet Systems Pvt. Ltd. for its high-speed 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) services. It will make use of Telenet’s outdoor Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) and indoor routers. The CPE is powered by a single-mode LTE chipset from Sequans Communications.
The outdoor CPEs are generally fixed atop a terrace so that they can connect with the telecom operator’s high-speed data network. This helps operators to enhance their indoor broadband service with the help of fiber. 

S. Dharmarajan, Vice President (VP) of Sales and Marketing at Telenet Systems informed that Telenet has already started supplying its products to Tikona. In the initial period, it will give a few thousand units of CPEs. He said that Tikona is very much focused on offering broadband services to companies and households.
Tikona makes use of Telenet's products to provide Wi-Fi-based broadband services to homes and offices. It has more than 3 lakh Telenet’s Wi-Fi CPEs installed across India.

Telenet, founded in 1990, has employed nearly 80 people across the country. The company has recently begun to manufacture LTE CPEs in India. Every month, it makes nearly 25,000 Wi-Fi and outdoor LTE CPEs and supplies these to Indian telecom companies.

Tikona’s 4G Plans -

With many service providers trying to launch 4G services across the country, Tikona has already made inroads into the sector and holds 4G spectrum licenses for 5 circles, including Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh (West), Rajasthan, and Uttar Pradesh (East). The company plans to invest INR 1,500 crores more to strengthen its 4G LTE services in these circles.
Tikona firstrolled out its 4G LTE services in Varanasi, this year as a pilot project. It has built broadband capacities to serve 50,000 homes in the city. With the huge success, the company has decided to replicate the same model in all of the cities under its coverage. It has planned to roll out services in 30 cities by early 2016.

Tikona is known to have built one of the largest outdoor Wi-Fi network infrastructures in the world, consisting of 40,000 access points. Additionally, it is one of the first operatorsto make use of the unlicensed spectrum to establish a secure wireless network.
