Chennai , Oct. 31

CISCO Systems, a global player in networking for Internet, is betting high on broadband services in India, and is in talks with Department of Telecom, Reliance and Bharti, for providing equipment to them, said Mr B. Ashok, Senior Vice-President, Information Technology Services, Cisco Systems (India and SAARC).

Within a year, there is going to be a boom in broadband services that provides voice, video and data in India, he told newspersons.

According to Mr Ashok, Cisco would provide Metro Ethernet, a powerful router that prioritises traffic (data, video and voice), to broadband players.

"We have signed with some players," he said without divulging the names of the companies. The market for metro ethernet in India could be over Rs 100 crore, and it depends up on the roll out of the broadband services providers. "We are excited about the future in broadband in India," he said.
