DoT to float tender for telecom gear test lab in Delhi
The Department of Telecom plans to set up a lab for testing telecommunication equipment in the national capital as part of efforts to strengthen network security amid rising cyber threats.

"(Telecom) Equipment testing lab is being set up in Delhi. We will float tender for setting up the lab in Delhi," Telecom Commission Member (Technoology) Peeyush Agrawal said at Cyber Security India 2016 summit.

He said the government has concern on cyber security and is making effort to keep away the threats.

"The industry needs smart and powerful tools to protect the network which needs to be fully secured. Special protection is required, which the service provider have realised," Agrawal said.

He said that IISc Bangalore is already assisting the Department of Telecom in testing telecom equipment.

"Since the telecom is the backbone of all the critical business, such as banking, telecommunications, defence, transport etc, we as the service provider have to be on a constant alert.

"Wherever there is a security breach, we have to identify such threats and close that gap by keeping a close watch and proactively work on meeting such security threats," Aircel CIO Rajesh Rampal said.
