ACG Selects Tejas Networks to Build National Optical Transport Network in Afghanistan

Tejas Networks announced it has signed a multi-year contract with U.S.-based Asia Consultancy Group (ACG), an independent private company providing Telecommunications infrastructure, managed and engineering services across Afghanistan.

As part of this contract, Tejas will supply its 100G-600G capable DWDM/OTN and PTN products to establish a high-capacity national backbone and packet access network in Afghanistan.

“At ACG, we are committed to develop a state-of-the-art, terabit-scale optical network that can cost-effectively address the escalating network capacity requirements of our service provider customers. After a rigorous evaluation process, we selected Tejas’s TJ1600 Metro and Long-haul DWDM/OTN products and TJ1400 PTN products for this important build-out,” said Dr. Dzung Nguyen, CTO of ACG. “We look forward to working closely with the Tejas Networks team to ensure that we fully leverage the advanced capabilities of their products and implement an agile and future-proof network that can adapt well to the explosive growth in Afghanistan’s mobile, broadband and cloud services markets in the coming years.”
