TELECOM box-maker Alcatel won 65 million euros (around Rs 340 crore) order from ITI Ltd to supply and install GSM network for the state-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd in Gujarat, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, an Alcatel news release said.

Alcatel and ITI has signed a pact to produce and deploy Alcatel's Evolium GSM solution to meet the booming demand of mobile solutions in India.

In the first phase of this agreement, ITI will deploy the GSM equipment produced by Alcatel, such as wireless switches and base stations.

Within a few months, ITI will acquire Alcatel GSM technology to manufacture this equipment under the Alcatel licence at the ITI plant in Mankapur, the release said.
