Srinagar: Baharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) on Wednesday launched its first Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP), where customer could make calls using internet worldwide.
BSNL, under the brand name ‘WINGS’, launched its first VOIP internet telephony services for its local and customers abroad. The customer needs to install the said application to use the services by smart phones, laptops and other devices.
BSNL claimed itself to be the foremost telecommunication company to launch the VOIP service for its customers. ‘WINGS’ telephony service can run in areas where the network coverage is not good enough relatively. If the internet is available by any means the customer could make and receive phone calls.
“There are places where BSNL network is yet to reach; ‘WINGS’ provides the facility of making and receiving phone calls just by using the Internet via BSNL broadband, Wi-Fi,” said H K Verma, Chief General Manager Jammu and Kashmir Telecom Circle BSNL.
Verma further said that the ‘WINGS’ application requires one time registration. “No SIM card and no roaming is required for using this application which would be available throughout the world”, he added.
The ‘WINGS’ would enable customers to make voice calls, multimedia calls not only to Wings application users but to other network users as well.
Moreover, BSNL also launched prepaid landline service for customers on state-of-art technology using Next Generation Network (NGN) platform.
Through NGN service provided by BSNL, the customers would enjoy the benefits in terms of pay as per use. “Customers can use this service without any registration and rental fee charges,” said General Manager Srinagar BSNL, Zaffar Iqbal. “This will facilitate the customers to use and pay rather than pay without using it,” he added.
To improve the network performance and Internet speed in Jammu and Kashmir, BSNL had taken an initiative for upgradation of ‘backhaul bandwidth’ between capital cities – Jammu to Srinagar – and beyond state – Jammu to Delhi.
With the induction of more than three hundred state-of-the-art transmission equipments, the telecommunication company claimed that they would facilitate the Kashmir valley with more than hundred nodes, which can provide connectivity to all places via Gigabit Ethernet Connectivity
