communication solution provider, spanning data and video solutions as a value

addition to the voice platform (source: Frost and Sullivan & CMIE). Second,

company provides remote maintenance interface (RMI), allocates dedicated teams

for key clients for effective and efficient customer relationship management (CRM),

etc. Third, with a strategically sharp focus on the fast emerging vertical

segments like IT enabled services and the call center market, has enabled the
