The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has shortlisted eight companies including Bharti Airtel, Wipro and Tata Communications to revamp its IT infrastructure network and communication systems.
The other shortlisted companies include Hewlett Packard Enterprise India, IBM India, NTT India, Orange Business Services India Technology and Sify Technologies.
The market regulator is looking to refurbish its IT infrastructure network and communication systems. It is also planning to have centralised control over its network and IP (internet protocol) telephony infrastructure.
In July, SEBI had invited Expressions of Interest (EoI) from solution providers for "upgrade and revamp of IT network, IP telephony and video conferencing set-up of SEBI".
Following this, these eight bidders have been shortlisted "for further process", the regulator said in a notice.
At the time of inviting EoI, it had said the proposed solution should be robust, secure, stable, efficient and easy to manage and should have the latest collaborative features.
