Internet service provider (ISP) DishnetDSL has embraced
a new technology: Ethernet-over-SDH synchronous digital
CEO V Srinivasan says the new technology will enable Dishnet
customers to cut their capex on hardware like routers
and modems, as and when they increase their bandwidth
requirements. "With this the customers have the flexibility
to increase or decrease their bandwidth requirements at
a short notice at no cost incurred for new hardware."

his bandwidth requirements, but now it could be done in

the Bangalore-based Tejas Networks.
