4. MLLN – Managed Leased Line Service
The MLLN service is specially designed mainly for having effective control and monitoring on the leased line so that the down time is minimized and the circuit efficiency is increased. This mainly deals with data circuits ranging from 64 Kbps to 2048 Kbps. Drawbacks in plain Leased line service Limited range of services - Only Plain Leased Line Service, Data cards support only up to 64 kbps, no support for N x 64 Kbps. Cumbersome operation  Different “boxes” from different vendors - difficult control & management  First Generation Network Elements with minimal maintenance features - Fault isolation & rectification difficult  No centralized Alarm or Performance Statistics Monitoring - No way to know the health of the network  New Circuit Installation - Long drawn out process - Manual verification of resources needed  Cross-connection of individual circuits is done at the channel level, physically Poor customer satisfaction  Reactive maintenance - Network fault reports not generated proactively  No guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS) - No way to measure circuit quality or generate customized performance reports  Poor network reliability & availability - Non-redundant network elements, No alternate routing of circuits in case of failure  No centralized Network Management System (NMS) - High lead time to for new installations, High MTTR (Mean Time To Repair) Today’s Requirement Buyers’ Market – Customer demands - Competition Service Level agreements – TRAI recommendations Carrier Class Operation Negotiable Quality of Service & Statistics Proactive corrections Negotiable bandwidth – Time of day Deployment in hours

5. Domestic Leased Lines Service
What is a leased line? It is a symmetric telecommunications line connecting two locations. It is a dedicated line (not shared) for a customer. It is a non switched line, i.e., it is a non-exchange line. It passes through transmission systems only. Leased lines can be used for telephone (voice), data or Internet services. However, dedicated voice circuits which were popular earlier are not in vogue now. Now a days, leased lines are mainly used for data services. Internet leased lines (ILL) is a separate service in itself. Services on offer 1. Speech Circuits (Hot lines or Private Wire): Between two locations in one city/ different cities for the same applicant. The terminating equipment at both ends is telephone without dialing facility. Data Circuits: To transmit data between computers or any other type of electronic information devices. Local (within city) and long distance (intercity) data circuits at low, medium and high speeds, i.e., from 64 Kbps to nx64 Kbps to 2 Mbps to STM-1 (155 Mbps) and beyond. Dedicated path between two points Private Data Network – More than one local or long distance leased circuits converging on a location such that data from one leased circuit can be transferred automatically to another leased circuit for the same subscriber. Mainly used by banks, other financial institutions, corporate, government, etc to build their own private data network interconnection various offices and their computer systems. Features Full dedicated bandwidth available for exclusive use of the subscriber Complete privacy/ secrecy of data From low to high, full range of bandwidth available – 64 Kbps, n x 64 Kbps, 2, 4, 8, 34, 45, 140, 155 (STM-1) Mbps, STM-4/16, etc Bandwidth available on-demand in most cities – no registration charges For low speed circuit, modem (Network Termination Equipment, NTE) is to be arranged by the customer

6. Internet Leased Line (ILL)
• ILL is an always on Internet connection based on leased line access (i.e. dedicated access). Leased lines provide the last mile access from the user premises to BSNL equipment. Required by heavy users like educational institutes, big cyber café, small and medium corporate house who need to constantly remain online with Internet. Permanent Internet connection connectivity through dialup access. as compared to the temporary

• • •

Far superior quality as compared to dialup, thanks to digital signaling, less noise, fewer exchanges etc. A scalable access method - Bandwidths starting from 64 Kbps to 2 Mbps to 8 Mbps, 10/100Mbps Ethernet connectivity, 34/45/155 Mbps and beyond can be deployed. Since the access is "always on", it is possible to associate a pool of permanent IP addresses with a particular leased line. Using IP addresses provided by BSNL, it becomes possible to deploy a variety of services such as mail, FTP, WWW, DNS, and proxy, to name the most common requirements of organizations. In other words, leased lines enable hosting of services of all types, and provide a platform for enterprise intranets and extranets, apart from what we may term as "entry level" services such as messaging, which still account for over 70 percent of all Internet access. Leased Internet bandwidths up to 2Mbps are provided using modems on copper pair, however, large bandwidths are provided using OFC in the last mile.

National Internet Backbone (NIB – II) BSNL is the largest ISP (Internet Service Provider) of India Leased Internet service of BSNL is given from the NIB – II network of BSNL NIB-II is a world class multi-gigabit, multi-protocol convergent IP infrastructure that provides convergent services like Voice, Data and Video through the same Backbone and Broadband Access Network. NIB-II provides a diversified range of internet access services NIB-II is capable of on-line measurement and monitoring of network parameters such as latency, packet loss, jitter, usage and availability so as to support SLAs with customers.

ILL service is available at almost all places in the country. There are 106 physical nodes of NIB and rest of the places have been declared as virtual nodes for provision of the service. Some of the core network nodes are fully mesh connected whereas all others are dual homed so that the network is highly fault resilient and provides interruption free service. International Connectivity  BSNL NIB-II has multiple connectivity to USA/Europe with major Tier-1 ISPs of USA/Europe over different submarine cable systems.  BSNL has multiple connectivity over Trans-Pacific as well as Trans-Atlantic route.  Total connectivity capacity: 141 STM-1s on IP / IPLC connectivity  Cable Landing Stations (CLS): BSNL has one own CLS at Tuticorin in Tamilnadu and has cable landing arrangements at Chennai and Mumbai through VSNL/ Reliance/ Bharti Connectivity within country – NIXI and direct peering  BSNL has peering arrangement with major ISPs of India through multiple connectivity at NIXI (National Internet Exchange of India) (Chennai, Noida & Mumbai).  BSNL also has direct transit/peering arrangement with major ISPs of India like Reliance, Bharti, TCL (Earlier VSNL)
