KOLKATA, INDIA: Epitome recently bagged its second major deal for McNully Bharat project. The project’s venue is Rajarhat area, where Epitome will be taking care of the active components. Valued at Rs 1 crore, this is the second landmark tender by the company, which claimed to have outbid networking giants like Siemens, IBM, HCL Comnet and Techniche. “We have already bagged the passive component supply and deployment in this project,” informed Rajarshi Ghosh, Executive Director, Epitome.
With Shintu Chakraborty, Director—Operations and Marketing, Epitome playing the pivotal role in the project, the company is optimistic about revival. Previously, the company had provided a holistic networking model for 4,330 nodes with 114 dual-face plate and 1,093 quad-face plate technology. It used Tyco Electronics products and solutions in the same project, which is said to have revived the presence of Epitome in the eastern channel space.
“We are now concentrating on system integration. With our newfound vigor, we are focussed on this aspect, as our customers are seeking a complete solution rather than a dissembled set of requirements consisting of networking, data storage and other solutions,” Ghosh added. In its revival phase to evolve as a system integrator, Epitome successfully deployed a major project in Cultural Research Center owned by the Bengal Government. Desperately seeking entry into the government vertical, Epitome has deployed servers, anti-virus and storage solutions, desktops and networking equipment in the project estimated at Rs 25 lakh.
“New orders will soon be coming from the government, as this has been a pilot project for the Cultural Research Center and we hope to maximize in this space,” he stated. Besides seeking a dramatic entry into system integration and tapping the government vertical, Epitome is fully concentrating on its core networking business. The company is also focusing on the SMB and enterprise sector.
The comapny has also deployed a 10km radius wi-fi solution for ECIL, about 65km from Bokaro. “ECIL is soon coming up with a major steel plant near Bokaro and they have hired 3,500 Chinese employees for the project. The employees have been put up in a township, where we deployed the wi-fi solution, ensuring zero downtime using Cisco wireless solution,” Ghosh added.
Also recently, the company has completed a project for the fast food major, Monginis, in Dhulagarh, which is 10km from Kolkata, in passive component solutions. Valued at Rs 25 lakh, Epitome is optimistic about fresh orders to come soon.
