“We will ensure timely implementation. LBS once commissioned will help BSNL to meet DoT LBS requirements/mandates and will also enable BSNL to provide value added services such as fleet management, etc,” Mitesh Vageriya, CEO of PertSol told ET. “The entire platform is in line with Aatmanirbharabhiyan of Govt of India.”
PertSol’s LBS solution, called iLocator, is already being used for various State Emergency Services such as UP112, Mumbai100, CG112, MP100, MERS112 and is being implemented in Gujarat112.
Mumbai-based PertSol already provides Lawful Interception System, IP Log Management, Fraud Management and Revenue Assurance and Remote Access System to BSNL in India.
Incorporated in 2014, PertSol claims that it has 100% in-house telecom solutions to provide packet core for 3G and 4G LTE data services. It also claims to offer IMS (VoLTE) and the entire packet core stack.
State-run C-DOT (The Centre for Development of Telematics) PertSol, and Mavenir have so far claimed that they can provide core for BSNL’s upcoming 4G network.
“…we further are also geared up to support BSNL in realising their dream of local core,” Vageria said.
In order to implement LBS, the ministry of communications and IT, had come out with a new notification on May 31, 2011, which focused on the amendment of the Unified Access Service License (UASL) agreement for security-related concerns for expansion of telecom services in various zones of the country.
BSNL had in January 2020 issued the tender for planning, engineering, supply, installation and annual maintenance of location based system and its interaction with LIS system and central monitoring system (CMS) for its network in North, East, South and West zones.
The tender was a turnkey implementation of the LBS System in the North, East, West and South zones comprising of GMLCs, SMLCs, SASs & E-SMLCs for about catering to the network of about 1200 BSCs, 500 RNCs and 10000 e-Node Bs across all zones.
