New Delhi: Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar today dedicated an indigenously-developed converged communications network for the armed forces.

This is a move that can be said to be the major step towards ensuring their network centricity.

This integrated communication architecture between the Indian Army, Indian Navy and Indian Air Force “bolsters the prowess of the defence forces during both critical operations and rescue missions. DCN is a major step towards ensuring network centricity across the three services, the Integrated Defence Staff (IDS) headquarters and the Strategic Forces Command (SFC)”, the statement said.

Speaking on the occasion, Premkumar Seshadri, Executive Vice-Chairman and Managing Director, HCL Infosystems Ltd.. said: “This is a moment of great honour for us. HCL Infosystems is proud to design, develop and deploy the first ever converged tri-service communication and IT network for the Indian Defence Forces.”
