PREFACE:- Management is an essential ingredient in every organized endeavor successful management of complex organization sophisticated technology and skilled personnel can’t be possible through intuition of trial and error. One can’t swim only by reading a book on swimming. It must require a “practice”. Practice makes man perfect.
Theory makes him thoughtful So theoretical knowledge is only a half way in study network. If theoretical knowledge aspects are planned in a better way give faithful results, so theoretical knowledge should be supplemented by practical experience. For holding student after his college study the knowledge that he has gained that should be imparted practically. So training is the only way to achieve such expectations. Training process acts as a bridge between college students and carrier performance. So, the article action is on a way through bridge itself since during that period one can expose his real talent in his field.
I have been fortunate to have my training of eight weeks at “Tata Teleservices Limited, Ahmedabad”. I am very glad to present this project report. I honestly thank to all of those who have helped me in my efforts. Entire report has been divided into different segments, which reflect different views on the areas covered.

This has been witnessed due to strong competition that has brought down tariffs as well as simplification of policy environment that has promoted healthy competition among various players. The mobile sector alone has been growing rapidly and has emerged as the fastest growing market in the whole worlds. Currently of a size nearing 200 million (GSM and CDMA), this sector is expected to reach a size of nearly 800 million subscribers by financial year 2011. The government has eased the rules regarding inner circle and intra circle mergers. This has led to a slew of mergers and acquisitions in the recent past.
Also as the sector is moving closer to maturity, further consolidation is a reality and this will lead to the survival of more profitable players in this segment. In order to further promote the use of Internet in the country the government is taking proactive steps to develop this sector with the help of the various players in this segment. For this purpose, the use of broadband technology is being mooted and this will go a long way in improving the productivity of the Indian economy as well as turn out to be the next big opportunity for telecom companies after the mobile communications segment.
Non-voice services and VAS are the gold mines. The big takeoff is expected with the rollout of 3G services in early 2007, once the spectrum issues are sorted out. Internet users base fast reaching near the English speaking population base. Local language and content required for further growth Infrastructure equipment cost is down to a fraction of what prevailed just a few years ago. Operators can plan better expansion plan now increased viability for the operators to expand to semi-urban and rural markets, hence, accelerate growth further it’s not without reason that India is tipped to be the world’s third-largest economy by 2050!
No wonder if it happens much earlier Investors can look to capture the gains of the Indian telecom boom and diversify their operations outside developed economies that are marked by saturated telecom markets and lower GDP growth rates. At a time when global telecom majors are struggling to cope with their losses and the rollout of 3G networks, which has been a non-starter for close to a year now; India, with its telecom success story, represents an attractive and lucrative destination for investment.
The Indian Telecommunications network is the third largest in the world and the second largest among the emerging economies of Asia. Today, it is the fastest growing market in the world. The telecommunication sector continued to register significant success during the year and has emerged as one of the key sectors responsible for India’s resurgent India’s economic growth. This rapid growth has been possible due to various proactive and positive decisions of the Government and contribution of both by the public and the private sector. The rapid strides n the telecom sector have been facilitated by liberal policies of the Government that provide easy market access for telecom equipment and a fair regulatory framework for offering Telecom services to the Indian consumers at affordable prices. Wire line Vs Wireless:- It has also undergone a substantial change in terms of mobile versus fixed phones and public versus private participation. The preference for use of wireless phones has also been predominant in the sector. Participation of the private entities in the telecom sector is rapidly increasing rate there by presenting the enormous growth opportunities.
There is a clear distinction between the Global Satellite Mobile Communication (GSM) and Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) technologies used and the graph below shows the divide between the two. Segment wise Status:- * Wire line Services With increasing penetration of the wireless services, the wire line services in the country are becoming stagnant. On the other hand, Broadband demand has picked up and promises to stabilize fixed line growth. * GSM Sector In terms of the Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM) subscriber base this now places India third after China and Russia. CDMA Services CDMA technology was introduced in India as a limited mobility solution. The introduction of CDMA services has created competition, lowered tariffs and offered many citizens access to communication services for the first time. * Internet Services Internet services were launched in India on August 15, 1995. In November 1998 the government opened up the sector to private operators. A liberal licensing regime was put in place to increase Internet penetration across the country. The growth of IP telephony or grey market is also a serious concern.
Government loses revenue, while unlicensed operation by certain operators violates the law and depletes licensed operators market share. New services like IP-TV and IP-Telephony are becoming popular with the demand likely to increase in coming years. The scopes of services under existing ISP license conditions are unclear. POLICY AND INITIATIVES:- The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) was set up in March 1997 as a regulator for Telecom sector. The TRAI’s functions are recommendatory, regulatory and tariff setting in telecom sector.
Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) came into existence in May, 2000. TDSAT has been empowered to adjudicate any dispute – • Between a licensor and a licensee • Between two or more service providers • Between a service provider and a group of consumers • hear and dispose of appeal against any direction, decision or order of TRAI Tariffs for telecommunication services have evolved from a regime where tariffs were determined by Telecom Regulatory Authority of India to a regime where tariffs are largely under forbearance.
TRAI intervenes by regulating the tariffs for only those services, the markets of which are not competitive. Universal Service Obligation Fund (USOF) exclusively for meeting the Universal Service Obligation was established in April, 2002. The Universal Service Levy is presently 5 per cent of the Adjusted Gross Revenue (AGR) of all telecom service providers except the pure value added service providers like Internet, Voice Mail, E-Mail service providers etc. Indian Telegraph Act has been amended in October’2006 to provide support for all telegraph services including mobile and broadband to bridge the digital divide.
With the introduction of the Unified Access Licensing Regime, operators can offer telecom access services to consumers in a technology neutral manner, subject to fulfilling certain conditions. Introduction of this regime has also broken the legal/regulatory impasse between the cellular and basic service providers. Issuance of Intra-Circle Merger and Acquisition Guidelines provide investors an opportunity to take stakes in existing telecom operations. Government Initiatives:-
The Government has taken the following main initiatives for the growth of the Telecom Sector: • All telecom services have been opened up for free competition for unprecedented Growth. • 217 (Information Technology Agreement) ITA-I items are at zero Customs Duty Specified capital goods and all inputs required to manufacture ITA-I, items are at zero Customs Duty. • Availability of low cost mobile handsets. • The international Long Distance Services (ILDS) opened with effect from April 2002. Calling Party Pays (CPP) regime was implemented with effect from 1st, May. Guidelines for Unified Access Service License regime were issued in November 2003, 27 licenses out of 31 Basic Service Licenses were converted to Unified Access Service Licenses. • In April 2004, license fee for Unified Access Service Providers (UAS) was reduced by 2 per cent. • License fee for infrastructure Provider-II reduced from 15 per cent to 6 per cent of the Adjusted Gross Revenue and spectrum charges between 2 to 4 per cent in June 2004. • Entry fee for NLD licenses was reduced to Rs. 2. 5 Crore from Rs. 100 Crore.
Entry fee for ILD reduces to Rs. 2. 5 Crore from Rs. 25 Crore. • Lease line charges have been reduced to make the bandwidth available at competitive prices to facilitate growth in IT enabled services. • One India plan i. e. single tariff of Re. 1/-per minute to anywhere in India was introduced from 1st, March 2006 by the Public Sector Undertakings. This tariff was emulated by most of the private service providers also. This scheme has led to death of distance in telecommunication and is going to be instrumental in promoting National Integration further. The robust telecom network has also facilitated the expansion of BPO industry that is having 500,000 employees now and adding 400 employees per day. • Annual license fee for National Long Distance (NLD), International Long Distance (ILD), Infrastructure Provider-II, VSAT commercial and Internet Service Provider (ISP) with internet telephony (restricted) licenses was reduced to 6 per cent of Adjusted Gross Revenue (AGR) with effort from Jan 2006. • The Government’s policy is neutral on use of technology by telecom service providers subject to availability of scarce resources such as spectrum etc. License Fees 6-10 per cent of Adjusted Gross Revenue (AGR).

About TATA group: Origin and Founder
The story of the Tata Group of business unfolds with the birth of its founder Jamshedji Tata in the small town of Navasari in Gujarat in 1839. He breathed his last in 1904 in Germany. His parents were Nuseerwanji and Jeevanbai Tata. Nusserwanji was the first businessman in a family of Parsi Zorastrian priests. Destiny called him to Bombay where he started trading. Jamshedji joined him at the tender age of fourteen. He took admission in Elphinstone College and while still a student he married Hirabai Daboo. Jamshedji graduated in 1858 and joined his father trading firm. Those were turbulent times.
The British had just managed to ruthlessly crush the 1857 Revolt. Since the age of twenty-nine Jamshedji continued to work in his father’s firm. In 1868 he started a trading company on his own with a capital of Rs. 21, 000/- His first step was to acquire a bankrupt oil mill and convert it into a cotton mill which he renamed Alexander Mill. Two years later he sold it with a good margin of profit. With this he set up a cotton mill in Nagpur in 1874. Queen Victoria had just been declared the Empress and in keeping with the times Jamshedji named it Empress Mill. Jamshedji was a unique personality.
He did not just think of innovative ways of manufacturing textiles but he devised new labor practices that would satisfy the workers. In this way he was far ahead of his times. It was not just his own personal success but also of those who worked for him and his group. Jamshedji was in close contact with revolutionary thinkers and nationalists like Dadabhai Naoroji and Pherozeshah Mehta and strongly influenced by them. He came to the conclusion that economic self-sufficiency should go hand in hand with political independence. The former should be the base of the latter. Jamshedji had three key ideas in mind.
He wanted to set up an iron and steel company, world class learning institution and a hydroelectric plant. Unfortunately during his lifetime none bore fruit but he had planted the seed, which later took roots and spread its branches under the care of his successors. The only achievement that he lived to see was The Taj Mahal Hotel. It was completed in December 1903 for a princely amount of Rs. 4, 21, 00,000/-In this too he was inspired by nationalist thinking. In those days the locals, that is Indians, were not allowed into the best European Hotels. Taj Mahal Hotel was a befitting reply to this discrimination.
Tata Group is a private conglomerate with headquarters at Mumbai. The present Chairman is Ratan Tata who took over from J. R. D. Tata in 1991. A member of the Tata family is always the Chairman of the group. Its operations covers many fields related to industry and allied activities concerned with know-how and its application engineering, information technology, communications, materials, automotive, chemicals energy, telecommunications, software, hotels, steel and consumer goods. The statistics and figures of Tata Group speak for themselves. Its revenue touches $967,229 million or $21. 9 billion in 2005/06.
This is equal to 2. 8% of India’s GDP. There are about 246. 000 employees in the Tata group as per records of 2004. Market capitalization figure is $57. 6 billion.

Production actually started in 1912. It produces steel at the lowest cost in the world. This is mainly because it is assisted by group member concern that deals with the supply of raw material like coal and iron. In 1910 was set up Tata Hydro-Electric Power Supply Company. In 1917 the Tata group made its debut in the field of consumer goods industry with the setting up of Tata Oil Mill dealing in soaps, detergents and cooking oil. 1932 saw the establishment of Tata airlines. Tata Chemicals made its appearance in 1939. Telco now known as Tata Motors started to manufacture locomotive and engineering products from 1945.
January 2007 is a watershed in the history of Tata Group. Tata steel made a Successful bid for UK based Corus Group, which was one of the world’s leading steel and aluminum producers. After an unprecedented nine rounds of bidding Tata finally clinched the deal. Tata offered to buy 100% stake in Corus at 608p per share (all cash) totaling to a value of $12. 04 billion. It has turned out to be the biggest acquisition by any Indian company. Tata Power is one of the largest private sector companies in India and supplies power to Mumbai and parts of New Delhi.

This department does the following activities: 1. Solution for the Business needs: 2. Solution by industry: 1. Solution for the Business needs: The first thing is to provide solution for the business needs. It means that it helps to … a) Continue the business Today’s enterprise has no rest. With its global footprint, communications and transactions are constantly taking place over networks and through IT systems. As such, preventing network downtimes and interruptions has become a necessity for all enterprises – especially those driven by a high cost per transaction.
Despite this, it is a fact that nearly 98% of the enterprises across the globe are adversely affected by unscheduled downtime. Unscheduled downtime also hits resource productivity, brand value and the reputation of an organization. Faced with demanding customers and stringent regulatory requirements, companies need to be proactive about business continuity planning. Cost-effective and efficient Business Continuity Management (BCM) strategies go a long way in building organizational resilience and protecting brand reputation in a volatile and high-risk global working environment.
While regulatory requirements drive BCM in the banking sector, corporate governance and business strategy encourages it in FSI, TMT, manufacturing and the other sectors. Business continuity solutions can empower an enterprise to restore operations rapidly, including retrieving and restoring access to data and having a contingency office environment equipped with office equipment. However, an effective design and management of enterprise’ infrastructure along with the preparedness for addressing a pandemic situation is crucial to a business continuity strategy.
With its diversified portfolio of services, TTSL can partner with enterprises and work collaboratively in planning network redundancies, load balancing, enabling network storage and restoring services, thus providing a complete business continuity solution. TTSL’s business continuity solutions include cutting-edge Enterprise Data services , and pan-India, Fixed Line voice services. b) Cost optimization Rapidly growing enterprises today need to optimize costs even as they step up investments to stay competitive.
With the increasing geographic spread, communicating with a dispersed workforce and clientele becomes a key issue. Technology, which offers the edge, also brings forth the challenge of managing disparate vendors and solutions. With the need of spending on voice and data services, telecommunication forms one of the top non-operating expenses for enterprises. Recent research shows that migration to new technologies can save up to 33. 45 percent of the expenses being made on the present architecture. Further, consolidation of networks can save up to 18. 8 percent and moving from unmanaged to managed, an additional 32. 6 percent. While the uptake of new technologies can offer multiple savings, a holistic view of your communication network is thus crucial for actual cost optimization. Choosing a suitable service provider and the optimal solution can reduce CAPEX through outsourced telecommunication management and OPEX through reduced administrative activities, there by improve organizational efficiency and strongly supporting cost optimization.

Solution by industry: The second thing is to provide solution by industry. It means that it helps to… a) Government India has experienced two decades of remarkable growth, unleashed by the implementation of important economic reforms in the early 1990s. Government investments in information and communication technologies (ICT) play a critical role in sustaining the country’s high rate of economic growth and social development, also ensuring its continued competitiveness on the global stage.
Government – at central, state and local levels – has realized the need for connectivity to foster greater transparency, accountability and responsiveness and, therefore, better governance. The Indian Government’s ICT expenditure is one of the fastest growing in the Asia Pacific region and is characterized by the need for internal and external transformation. External transformation will, propel services and clearer information to the public using electronic means. Internal transformation and large-scale integration will ensure seamless interoperability and exchange of data across ministries and departments.
However, the Government vertical is faced with unique challenges. The sheer scale of projects, in terms of data and voice needs and e-infrastructure across the length and breadth of the country, presents a complicated problem to the IT and Telecom teams. Since the vertical is characterized by critical applications and highly sensitive, there is a pressing need for a highly reliable network to ensure real-time access to information. At the same time, there is the need to optimize implementation and operational costs and improve citizen services with the most effective and efficient solutions.
Secure access, reliable connectivity and cost effective solutions thus form the pillars of successful government projects.

TTSL’s highly reliable and 100% onsite services support has also allowed the delivery of high-quality services by organizations to its customers, located across the country. b) Retail The Indian retail industry – the fifth largest in the world – employs about 8 percent of the country’s workforce. Highly fragmented, the sector consists mostly of owner-run ‘Mom-and-Pop’ outlets while organised retail accounts for only 5% of total retail sales.
However, an increasing focus on enhancing the customer experience is driving the organized retail segment in India. Growing consumerism, brand consciousness and the easy availability of loans across different socio-economic classes is propelling the rapid expansion of urban and semi-urban organized retail markets. Simultaneously, declining margins are transforming the way business is carried out. Retailers are tweaking their business models and are adopting innovative methods using technology as an enabler to ensure sustainability.
Data integrity challenges as a result of systems fragmentation, diverse point solutions, intense customization and the absence of an underlying best practice architecture or of an out-of-the-box solution that spans the retail space, is creating a compelling case for the uptake of advanced telecom solutions. Current retailer focus is on leveraging multi-channel retailing, gaining real-time access to information, streamlining operations to improve productivity and enhancing the overall experience for customers.
The need to have an integrated telecom solution on wireline and wireless for voice and data requirements to provide enhanced customer service is the key focus area. The vertical is characterized by high dependence on technology for managing internal connectivity through reliable and scalable wireline and wireless solutions that provide seamless connectivity and uninterrupted operations between the POS, retail branch, back office and head quarters.

At the same time, the insurance industry is transforming itself with an ever increasing portfolio of offerings. The growing focus on financial inclusion is compelling organizations to devise innovative business models to reach out to geographically dispersed population pockets. Technology is allowing the BFSI industry to reach out to new markets and offer novel products and services through efficient delivery hannels based on ATM, Internet and mobile platforms. However, the extensive network and geographical spread of over 62,000 bank branches and 42,000 ATMs poses a serious challenge in terms of managing operations, IT infrastructure and communicating efficiently with customers and employees through different access points. Further, data security and availability of information updates is critical to the banking business, mandating high network uptime, rapid fault detection and quick problem resolution. The banking and financial industry is also challenged by the large number of existing legacy systems in its infrastructure.
The vertical thus has a unique set of requirements demanding high quality voice and data ICT architecture.
