1. Executive Summary Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has conceptualized CCTNS (Crime & Criminal Tracking Network & System) as a Mission Mode Project towards enhancing outcomes in areas of Crime Investigation, Criminals detection; and enhancing effectiveness and efficiency of policing through creation of a nationwide, networked infrastructure for evolution of IT-enabled state-of-the-art system. National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) is the central nodal agency that would manage the implementation of CCTNS under the overall supervision and guidance of MHA. MHA plans to implement CCTNS project (Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and System) which requires a highly secured and reliable wide area network (WAN). BSNL has worked out the details and submitted a proposal for providing WAN based on MPLS VPN and VPNoBB. This detailed proposed has been finally prepared after a series of discussion with MHA, NCRB and other agencies/ consultant on behalf of customer.

The details of the various stages of

deliberations are given in background section. The proposal starts with an introduction of the services of BSNL and explains the MPLS network of BSNL. As per this project proposal, MPLS VPN will be provided at 2,000 higher offices, 35 SDC and 1 NDC. These locations will be provided backup of WiMAX, EVDO, 3G, VPNoBB, ISDN depending on availability at the sites. An uptime commitment of 99% has been offered for these sites. In smaller offices and Police stations (18,392), the connectivity of VPNoBB will be provided as per this proposal. In case of non feasible sites, the connectivity will be provided by WiMAX/ EVDO/ 3G or by way of VSAT as last option. The explanation of the three options worked out are given in brief but the Options-2, which has been decided for the CCTNS project implementation, has been explained in detail. The details of the network connectivity are given in networking solution section. There is an option of upgrading VPNoBB links to MPLS VPN link as and when required by customer. The proposal also explains the mechanism for utilization of SWAN as backup to the links being provided by BSNL under this proposal in order to improve the overall reliability of the CCTNS network.

Site readiness and Infrastructure requirement are important and have to be taken care of by NCRB. The project implementation plan explains about the project teams for service delivery at Circle level and National level from BSNL side.

Similarly there will be requirement of State level and National level

coordinators from NCRB/ MHA side, who should activity participate in various activities during project implementation and thereafter. The operations and maintenance section explains about the MPLS NOC support procedure, the fault booking/ reporting, helpdesk management, escalation matrix etc. Service level commitment has been offered even for VPNoBB sites as a special case. The proposal explains the SLA monitoring mechanism and about the NMS being offered under this proposal. The proposal has a section on responsibility matrix which explains the distribution of responsibilities among the various stakeholders for the proper implementation of the project. A number of assumptions have been made while preparing the proposal and are explained in the section titled ―Assumptions and Exclusions‖. The risks which could affect the CCTNS project have been discussed along with risk-mitigation. After the CCTNS project is implemented, there can be additional requirement which can be handled by BSNL and details are also given in the proposal. Although the proposal is brief, it covers the various issues required for the proper implementation and maintenance of the CCTNS.

2. Background of the Project Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has conceptualized CCTNS (Crime & Criminal Tracking Network & System) as a Mission Mode Project towards enhancing outcomes in areas of Crime Investigation, Criminals detection; and enhancing effectiveness and efficiency of policing through creation of a nationwide, networked infrastructure for evolution of IT-enabled state-of-the-art system. National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) is the central nodal agency that would manage the implementation of CCTNS under the overall supervision and guidance of MHA. As part of CCTNS implementation, NCRB would provide all States and Union Territories with the CCTNS Core Application Software (CAS) that could be configured, customized, enhanced and deployed by the States and Union Territories (UTs). A robust wide area networking (WAN) platform is required to connect around 20,000 sites across India for integrated rollout of CCTNS. BSNL had been interacting with MHA, NCRB and NISG for working out the solution for WAN connectivity of CCTNS sites. After the initial discussions with MHA, NCRB and NISG, BSNL had proposed MPLS VPN based WAN (Wide Area Network) for the CCTNS project. There were certain concerns about the cost of MPLS VPN based WAN and about the non-utilization of SWAN. Accordingly, BSNL had discussed the alternatives with the concerned persons and also conducted field visits to Chandigarh and Bangalore to study the working and status of SWAN and police network on SWAN. Based on the discussions with MHA, NCRB & NISG, BSNL had worked out the proposal with three options and had requested NCRB/ MHA to decide which option is suitable for them so that further details can be worked out by BSNL. These three options are as under:a) Option-1: MPLS VPN for all sites. b) Option-2: MPLS VPN for higher offices (2,000) and VPNoBB for smaller offices & police stations.

[BSNL Confidential]


Networking Solution for CCTNS c) Option-3: MPLS VPN for only NCRB/ SCRB and SWAN connectivity for all other officer A meeting was called by MHA on 13-5-2010 under the chairmanship of Home Secretary which was attended by officers from MHA, NCRB, BSNL and others on behalf of MHA/ NCRB (e.g. CRIS, PWC, NISG, SBI etc.). A presentation was given by BSNL during the meeting about the three options and detailed discussions were held about the features and the advantages/ disadvantages of the various options. After the discussions inputs were takenby the Home Secretary from the various persons present during the meeting and it was decided that Option-2 should initially be adopted for implementation of CCTNS and then gradually upgraded to Option-1. The minutes of the meeting contain the details of the deliberations during the meeting. A follow-up meeting was conducted on 16-8-2010 & 23-8-2010 in NCRB and it was insisted that BSNL should provide SLA on sites with VPNoBB connectivity also. It was also desired that NCRB should have a view about the health of the complete network and they should be in a position to get details about any location for which a NMS will have to be provided to NCRB. As intimated earlier, the VPNoBB is a low cost service in which premium features of service e.g. monitoring, fault booking/ rectification & report generation is not available on centralised basis. Hence, for giving SLA on VPNoBB BSNL has to provide separate NMS to NCRB and to ask the sites to book complaints locally in the district/ state on a designated system through web-portal so that SLA report generation is possible. Service Level Agreement (SLA) is possible on VPNoBB as a very special case with limited parameter (only Uptime) monitoring. It was also insisted upon to provide backups either through SWAN or any other mechanism. In order to take care of the additional requirement, the commercials have got revised and have increased marginally.

Hardware (Router/Modems) required for bandwidth provisioning has to be procured separately by the respective States

Out of the three above mentioned options, BSNL had recommended for option-1 in its proposal as best solution in terms of overall manageability of the network and keeping in mind the future applications based on Voice and Video, which may be used over this network. Subsequently, BSNL had given presentation to Home Secretary mentioning all the three options. BSNL also presented the case study comparing the network readiness and features of Karnataka SWAN and connectivity infrastructure of Karnataka Police. Karnataka police have implemented their network as mix of MPLS VPN and VPNoBB. Same topology is mentioned in option-2 of BSNL‘s proposal. Although option-2 has inherent limitations in terms of SLA commitment, centralised monitoring & support etc. but due to the budget constraint it had been decided that initially option-2 should be adopted for implementation of CCTNS. Then CCTNS can be gradually upgraded to option1. Backups should be provided either through SWAN or any other mechanism. Due to the limitations of option-2 motioned above, this will not be suitable for following: i. Voice Over IP, ii. Video Conferencing iii. Finger print search iv. Applications such as Surveillance cameras v. Instant, Real-time Messaging [BSNL Confidential]

5.2 Design Considerations for CCTNS For designing the solution, following points are taken into consideration: 

Feasibility Available Technology for WAN Solution The technology which is considered in the approach methodology is BSNL MPLS VPN, VPN over Broadband and the same is available at most of the locations of CCTNS. Remaining sites are planned on other wireless connectivity or VSAT connectivity.

Scalability and Expandability The solution proposed is scalable from the perspective of bandwidth and connectivity. The routers provided have sufficient number of slots available to take care of the near future network requirements.

Security and Solution Management The complete WAN solution is based on MPLS-VPN/VPNoBB to enhance the security. The proposed solution takes care of the various aspects of the design parameters desired for the total solution to be deployed. The key features of CCTNS network are: 

State-of art network





Video Conferencing (MPLS VPN site only with >384 Kbps of

bandwidth) The connectivity pattern will be such that all locations will directly connect to BSNL MPLS VPN/Broadband cloud. Since all POPs will be connected to MPLS/broadband cloud, in case any MPLS link goes down, then there will be no effect on connectivity, operations or security at any other POP.

5.3 MPLS WAN technology MPLS as the emerging WAN technology brings in the following advantages: •

MPLS VPN for Traffic separation requirement to address the security concerns. IPSEC may be used on top of MPLS VPN for additional security through encryption.

Overlapping IP Addressing for Departments









architecture •

Traffic Engineering for – Better Utilization of Redundant Paths Bandwidth Guaranteed service for critical applications Fast Re-route for fast convergence

MPLS VPNs simplify the Central Site Design by avoiding the traditional Hub-andSpoke and bringing in any site to any site full mesh connectivity. MPLS VPN services Traditional IP networks have no means of labeling, categorizing or monitoring the packets that traverse them. MPLS technology works to solve the IP shortcomings placing labels on IP packets and providing that labelling function. And because MPLS is an overlay protocol it can operate over top of the IP protocol in the same network without interference. MPLS is not designed to replace IP. It is rather designed to add a set of rules to IP so that traffic can be classified, marked and policed. MPLS-equipped networks use MPLS-aware devices known as label edge routers (LERs), positioned at the network‘s edges.

These devices are designed to

inspect IP packets entering the network and add MPLS headers, as well as [BSNL Confidential]


Networking Solution for CCTNS removing the headers from packets leaving the MPLS network.

Inside the

boundaries of the MPLS network, devices known as Label Switch Routers (LSRs) look for an MPLS label on each packet that passes through them, looking up and following the instructions contained in those labels, routing them based on a list of instructions. MPLS allows administrators to define routes known as label switched paths (LSPs) from one LER to another, through a series of LSRS, across the MPLS network. These LSPs are pre-assigned and pre-engineered paths that packets with a certain label should follow. One of the most obvious advantages of MPLS is that it provides network administrators with a number of tools for traffic engineering. An MPLS network can offer the same sort of quality of service guarantees that data transport services like Frame Relay or ATM can, without requiring the use of any dedicated lines. An administrator, for example, can define a LSP that ensures VoIP traffic will be routed through the most reliable, highest performing sections of the network while less critical traffic, such as email, is sent across the slower sections. MPLS allows customer committed bandwidth which is difficult on other IP networks such as 25%, 50% and 99% committed Bandwidth depending on their applications.

They can also choose from flexible Bandwidth option ranging

from 64Kbps onwards. MPLS benefits

MPLS has the following benefits: -

ď ą

Traffic engineering: - Provides the ability to set the path that the traffic will take through the network, and the ability to set performance characteristics for different qualitative Classes of Service (CoS) and Quality of Service (QoS). MPLS is a key development in Internet technologies that

[BSNL Confidential]


Networking Solution for CCTNS will assist in adding a number of essential capabilities to today‘s best effort IP networks.

ď ą

Providing IP based Virtual Private Networks (VPNs): - Using MPLS service providers can create IP tunnels throughout their network, without the need for encryption or end-user applications.

Elimination of Multiple layers Typically most carrier networks employ an overlay model where ATM/ FR/ Ethernet is used at Layer 2 and IP is used at Layer 3. Using MPLS, carriers can migrate many of the functions of the ATM control plane to Layer 3, thereby simplifying network management and network complexity.

Network Architecture: -

The infra structure for the VPN Service shall be deployed in the following manner with a clear segregation of the devices in the following layers: I.

Customer Edge (CE) Router is the Router, which connects to the customer network and is the point of connection to the service provider.


Provider edge (PE) Router is the Aggregation Router at BSNL/MTNL premises. It aggregates the connections from the customer Edge Routers identifies them, labels them to the appropriate VPN and further connects to the VPN provider Core.


Provider (P) Router: Router in the Service Provider premise connecting to the Provider Edge device.


VPN Management System: VPN Management System is used for provisioning of VPN services across the network.


Network Management System: The network management system is used for managing the network.

5.5 Network Solution Brief Looking at the criticality and confidentiality of the data that will flow on the network, BSNL had recommended state of art Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) technology for the Wide Area Network (WAN) in the previous proposals. After detailed discussions with MHA, NCRB, NISG and the consultant and considering the budget the optimal solution for the CCTNS project is mix of MPLS VPN and VPNoBB. The same has been proposed as option-2 in BSNL‘s earlier proposal. The WAN services for CCTNS project will be provided utilising the MPLS backbone (Core) network of BSNL and Lease Lines/Broadband access network for connectivity of CCTNS site with BSNL POP. The Solution has been devised considering the optimal usage of the network for CCTNS with Data application only. In this option NDC, SDC & higher offices will be connected to MPLS cloud of BSNL directly via point to point leased lines i.e. MPLS VPN links. However the small offices & police stations where, less usage is expected will be connected via BSNL‘s broadband network i.e. VPNoBB. The suitable backup (EVDO/3G/WiMax, VPNoBB/ISDN) depending on the feasibility & bandwidth of the site will be provided for the locations connected over point to point lease line with MPLS cloud. The locations connected over the VPNoBB link may use SWAN as backup network as and when it get deployed. For integrating SWAN link with VPNoBB additional hardware (Router & Modem) will be required. The MPLS connectivity of NDC & SDCs links (>4 Mbps) has been proposed to be provided through OFC (in last mile) using SDH rings working on at least STM-1 (155Mbps), which has got the inherent capability of switching traffic to alternate path within 50 ms in case of optical fibre cable failure. BSNL deploys the various world standard technologies supplied by M/s Siemens, M/s Fibcom, M/s Marconi and M/s ICOMM etc. The OFC equipment e.g. ADMs (Add/Drop Multiplexer) which are proposed to be placed at customer premises can produce E1, STM and Ethernet outputs. These ADMs will be equipped with STM and Fast Ethernet ports and the CPE device (i.e. Router) at NDC/SDC will be directly connected to the Fast Ethernet/ STM port on the ADM. It is possible to configure multiple numbers of E1s from in the STM bandwidth and to the Ethernet port of ADM to provide the desired data rate to the customer [BSNL Confidential]


Networking Solution for CCTNS equipment. At the remaining sites last mile of the MPLS connectivity will be provided on either Managed Leased Line Network (MLLN) or using conventional Lease lines. CCTNS site which may not be technically feasible on terrestrial media, BSNL will provide Ku-band VSAT. NCRB will be required to provide suitable space for installing the OFC equipment along with UPS power supply for proper working of the WAN.

5.7 Approach for utilization of SWAN as backup of primary link As decided during the meeting chaired by the Home Secretary on 13-05-2010, it was desired that each site should have a backup by way of SWAN or any other Network (e.g. POLENET).The technical solution being provided by BSNL under ‗Option-2‘ provides for MPLS VPN links in 2,000 higher offices, 35 SDCs and 1 NDC. At the other 4,000 smaller offices and 14,392 Police stations, BSNL is offering VPNoBB which is a cost effective solution to meet the CCTNS requirement. The methodology and the technical solution for utilising SWAN as backup link for CCTNS has been worked out so that NCRB gets the advantage of better reliability. The horizontal connectivity from Police stations/ smaller offices to SWAN POP will be provided by the States Department of IT. Since different States are at different stages of implementing SWAN for user Departments, it is felt that there may be delays in the implementation of SWAN as backup in some States. The technical issues and logistics required for implementation the SWAN backup links will have to be handled by the concerned States and not by BSNL. The routers being proposed at 2000 MPLS VPN locations have been provisioned with additional WAN port that may be used for terminating SWAN connectivity. However there will be requirement of additional Routers and Modems for the 18,000 VPNoBB sites. Apart from the hardware, there will be requirement of point to point lease at all the locations for connecting SWAN POP with CCTNS locations. The schematic connectivity diagram for utilisation of SWAN as backup is given below in this section.

The SI will install and configure routers. This SI will also configure the router for backup links being provided by BSNL under this proposal at the higher offices which would be WiMax, EVDO or 3G etc. depending on the availability of relevant services in those locations. BSNL will provide VPNoBB connectivity to the smaller offices/ Police Stations (18,392 Nos) through BSNL‘s in-house teams located in various Districts. At these locations the hardware i.e. ADSL modem cum router will also be provided through BSNL in-house resource. NCRB has already been requested to collect information related to the site locations address, contact Nos, site category/ connectivity required (MPLS VPN or VPNoBB) in a desired format and submit to BSNL, so that the details can be worked out in advance so that the project may be completed in time.

9. Operation, Maintenance & Support Plan BSNL understands the importance of ―Timely Support‖ in CCTNS so the MPLS VPN provided would be monitored and managed by BSNL through its central NOC. BSNL has built a support mechanism to support its customers and same will be offered to CCTNS network. A 24X7 Helpdesk will be available for attending calls at central level for MPLS VPN. Users can call or send email for any issues that they face. A ticket number will be issued which becomes a reference for further tracking. Also a proactive update may be sent to the end user and the administrator till the time the problem is resolved and ticket is closed. Ticket and monitoring tool archives are available for trend analysis and can be used for further improvement of the services. An escalation matrix will be shared which can be used for appropriate escalations during service issues. BSNL has already formed a Service Delivery (SD) and Service Assurance (SA) team at each circle level. The work of this SA team will be to assure the service levels and timely rectification of faults in their circle by coordinating with the concerned people.

Fault reporting (MPLS VPN & VPNoBB)

The fault booking will have to be done by the police stations/ police control room in a decentralised manner by the concerned districts through BSNL recommended procedure which will be finalised and intimated later on. There are a number of police stations/ smaller offices which will have problem of erratic power supply and it is anticipated that the UPS may also get degraded and hence the power to the equipment may either get switched off or be switched off by the concerned staff (when CCTNS is not being used) to avoid damage to UPS battery. There are high chances of large numbers of ―False complaints‖ being generated in case the complaints are booked without verification from the concerned office/ police station which can be detrimental for the health of the whole CCTNS. Hence, the fault booking should be done by the police control room/ police station/ office after conducting preliminary checks as given under:a) The power supply is available and the equipments (Modem, Router etc.) are switched on. b) That the physically connectivity of the Router, Modem, LAN is not disturbed to eliminate problem at that local end. c) Observation









communicated to the BSNL staff while booking complaint or when asked by BSNL while trouble-shooting.

Helpdesk Management (MPLS VPN & VPNoBB)

The helpdesk features for VPNoBB will be available state wise. However, it is envisaged that the fault would be booked as per BSNL recommended procedure so that reports can be extracted. The reports regarding SLA of VPNoBB sites will be available state wise. The helpdesk features for MPLS VPN is centralized at National level where the complaints can be booked on phone/ email/ webportal. However, the NMS proposed to be deployed for CCTNS at NCRB will be able to display the health of the complete CCTS Network i.e. the main MPLS Links, VPNoBB Links and backup links being providing by BSNL under this proposals. BSNL shall provide dedicated manpower (2-4 persons) per State/ Circle for coordinating and pursuing the fault rectification activities. This manpower will operate during office working hours from the SDC location in the States/ Circle for which space/ infrastructure will have to be provided by NCRB. BSNL shall provide dedicated manpower (2-4 persons) at NDC or NCRB HQ for management of NMS installed. This manpower will operate during office working hours for which space/ infrastructure will have to be provided by NCRB.

10. Service Level Monitoring Mechanism MHA is concerned about the CCTNS and strongly feels that BSNL should be offering Service level commitment for uptime even for sites with VPNoBB connectivity so that CCTNS gets acceptance among the field police staff. Although, BSNL is presently not offering Service Level Commitment for VPNoBB as the centralized system for monitoring, fault booking, fault rectification/ management and report generation is not implemented. However in view of MHA‘s specific request, BSNL agrees for providing the Service Level Assurance for uptime even for VPNoBB links for CCTNS by making some separate investment for NMS for centralized monitoring. However, the procedure for fault booking, fault rectification/ management and report generation will be decentralized at the level of States/ District so that we are able leverage on the existing system of BSNL and are also able to generate Service Level Achievement reports. BSNL would provide Service Level Assurance of 99% availability of the sites on MPLS VPN and 97% uptime on the VPNoBB links. The customer would be required to book a complaint on their toll-free/ other designated numbers and obtain a fault docket. BSNL will provide Service Level Assurance limited to only uptime supported by broadband CPEs of BSNL. For this purpose VPNoBB services with fixed IP will be provided to enable monitoring and a separate NMS will have to be provided by BSNL for CCTNS projects. In case required additional support of BSNL‘s partner may also be taken for Service Level monitoring purpose.

10.1 Service Level Monitoring and NMS details BSNL has a Network Operation Centre (NOC) at Bangalore. NOC is manned on 24x7 bases. All the NMS components are deployed in High Availability mode.

13. Risk Management in CCTNS Project It is anticipated that while implementing CCTNS project, there is risk of project getting delayed in case various issue are not handled in advance. Some of the risks for the project implementation and operations of CCTNS are as under:i.

Delays in receipt materials: The equipment would be despatched by BSNL or its SI or supplier to the field offices. In case the field officers do not give proper receipt or refuse to receive the equipment there can be additional courier charges/ delivery charges payable by NCRB plus delays in implementation of the project.


Delays in permissions: In case of refusal of permission by local agencies (Government/ Municipal agencies/ Panchyat etc.) for trenching for laying new cable/ maintaining existing cable, there can be delays which shall not be attributed to BSNL. In such cases the local Police offices/ officers will be required to support BSNL in getting the permission from the concerned agencies.


Damage/ loss of equipment: There can be various reasons for damage/ loss of equipment which are not because of BSNL e.g. due to Riots, Natural calamity such as flood/ Earthquake, damage by misuse, misplacement/ theft, exposure to harsh environment etc. In such cases the repair/ replacement of equipment will be at additional cost.


Shortage of equipment: In case of shortage of any equipment the alternatives will be explored and project will be commissioned with alternatives under due intimation to NCRB.

These risks can be handled in case suitable instructions are issued in advance by NCRB/ MHA. An officer of NCRB should be designated as National level coordinator for the project implementation phase and thereafter for the life of the CCTNS project. Similarly, an officer of SCRB/ State Police HQ should










implementation phase and thereafter for the life of the CCTNS project.

14. Service enhancement and continuous improvement strategy BSNL has the capacity to handle growing volumes of business. BSNL undertakes to provide additional Services or other similar services in case a specific need arises. Such additional services would be for an additional charge. BSNL will offer suitable discounts over the list prices prevailing at that time. These enhancement options are detailed below:a. Up-gradation of bandwidth from one class to another class or upgradation of the bandwidth requirement at any of the sites. b. Additional sites can be added to the CCTNS as and when required by NCRB. The media for providing connectivity will depend on the feasibility of the new sites. c. Shifting of the sites is possible. However the connectivity at the new location would depend on the feasibility. d. Any other service of BSNL

15.4 Justification for the commercials BSNL has worked out very special rates for the networking solution for CCTNS project as it a project of national importance. The initial proposal for Option-2 was for Rs 290 crores (for 3-year period) was based on BSNL‘s tariff with significant discounts. The networking solution has been customised to meet the requirement of CCTNS project and many additional premium features have been added in both MPLS VPN & VPNoBB over and above the standard service offerings of BSNL. Hence, considering various additional premium features that have been added especially for CCTNS, the commercials are really very low.

The item-wise

justification is as under:Point 1 (for Items 1 & 2): MPLS VPN bandwidth charges at the NDC, SDC & Higher Offices includes Routers and modems rentals. The details of the bandwidth at the various SDC/ NDC are given in section 5.6a (page 26- 27) of this proposal. At the NDC and SDC (> 4Mbps) BSNL will provide connectivity through OFC ring with automatic switch-over for better protection in case of an OFC cut. At the other offices, backup will be provided on a different access media like EVDO/ 3G/ WiMax/ CDMA etc. (details in Section- 5.6b, c; page 2829). Provision of an additional WAN port has also been kept in the routers being provided at the higher offices for connecting SWAN as a 2nd backup at these offices (details in Section 5.7; page 31-32). Point-2 (for Items 3 & 4): The VPN over Broadband being offered to CCTNS for Smaller offices and Police stations in this proposal is having additional feature of service level commitment of 97% uptime. This is premium feature which is presently available only for MPLS VPN links and not a standard service offering of BSNL for VPNoBB which is otherwise a low cost service. This is being provided for CCTNS based as a very special case on the request of NCRB/ MHA. This requires additional support system in BSNL for monitoring, pursuance and faster fault rectification so that uptime commitment is achieved. In order to be able to monitor the sites and for providing SLA commitment on uptime, BSNL will be [BSNL Confidential]


Networking Solution for CCTNS providing ―fixed IP‖ even for VPNoBB sites instead for dynamic IP. In case required, additional support of BSNL‘s partner may be taken for monitoring purpose (details in section-10, page 48). Point-3 (for Item 5 & 6): BSNL has made provision for deploying manpower for O&M of the NMS (Network Management System) being provided to NCRB at the NDC for helpdesk and escalation support. This is required so that that NCRB is able to get a full view of the complete CCTNS network which would include all sites which are even on VPNoBB links. NCRB will also be able to see details of any part of the network which will be helpful for monitoring and control over the States. In addition to the above, BSNL has made provision for deploying dedicated manpower at the States/ Circles for coordinating and pursuing the fault rectification activities for achieving good uptime (details in section-9.3, page 45). Point-4 (for Item 7): The VSAT bandwidth is a very costly resource. Hence, BSNL has proposed an optimum bandwidth taking into consideration that the sites requiring VSAT will be very remote and small sites. This includes the WPC charges and licence fees also. In case required the bandwidth can be upgraded after 3 months. Point-5 (for Item 8): The VSAT one time charges includes the cost of the VSAT hardware. It also includes the cost of transportation to the remote sites and the installation cost at the remote sites. Point-6 (for Item 9): BSNL has made Provision for NMS for NCRB for monitoring of the complete CCTNS network. This will give a view of the complete CCTNS network to NCRB. The NMS will comprise of a number of components (details in Section 10.2, page-52). Point-7 (for Item 10): BSNL has made provision for additional hardware for the National Data Centre as it a very important entity of the whole project. These additional

These items are required for Data centres Setup and in case it is being provided to NCRB under some other project, the same may be dropped. The details will be finalised in consultation with NCRB. Point-8 (for Item 11): BSNL has made provision for passive equipment for the sites having MPLS VPN connectivity. These will be required for the proper installation of the routers/ modems and will be helpful for the safety of the equipment.
