Tejas Networks said it is establishing a Center of Excellence (CoE) for next-generation telecom technologies in Kerala. The CoE is being set up in partnership with the state government in the new Integrated Startup Complex in Kochi.
As part of the partnership, Tejas Networks also proposed to set up an advanced networking testbed for cutting-edge technologies such as terabit-scale optical communications, gigabit-scale broadband access, 5G and software-defined networking.
The company's new center will focus on training, skills development and mentoring of college students, young entrepreneurs and high-potential electronics startups in the state.
Senior technologists from Tejas will work closely with the faculty of leading engineering institutions in the state to develop a futuristic, industry-oriented telecommunication training and certification program.
Sanjay Nayak, Managing Director and CEO of Tejas Networks said "Kerala has emerged as a thriving ecosystem of talented entrepreneurs, startups and academic institutions and we are happy to share our first-hand experience, capabilities and expertise in the telecom arena to help nurture the local ICT industry in Kerala".
