Epitome recently bagged its second major deal for McNully Bharat project. The

project's venue is Rajarhat area, where Epitome will be taking care of the

active components. Valued at Rs 1 crore, this is the second landmark tender by

the company, which claimed to have outbid networking giants like Siemens, IBM,

HCL Comnet and Techniche. “We have already bagged the passive component supply

and deployment in this project,” informed Rajarshi Ghosh, Executive Director,


With Shintu Chakraborty, Director-Operations and Marketing, Epitome playing

the pivotal role in the project, the company is optimistic about revival.

Previously, the company had provided a holistic networking model for 4,330 nodes

with 114 dual-face plate and 1,093 quad-face plate technology. It used Tyco

Electronics products and solutions in the same project, which is said to have

revived the presence of Epitome in the eastern channel space.

“We are now concen­trating on system integration. With our newfound vigor, we

are focussed on this aspect, as our customers are seeking a complete solution

rather than a dissembled set of requirements consisting of networking, data

storage and other solutions,” Ghosh added. In its revival phase to evolve as a

system integrator, Epitome successfully deployed a major project in Cultural

Research Center owned by the Bengal Government. Desperately seeking entry into

the government vertical, Epitome has deployed servers, anti-virus and storage

solutions, desktops and networking equipment in the project estimated at Rs 25



“New orders will soon be coming from the government, as this has been a pilot

project for the Cultural Research Center and we hope to maximize in this space,”

he stated. Besides seeking a dramatic entry into system integration and tapping

the government vertical, Epitome is fully concentrating on its core networking

business. The company is also focusing on the SMB and enterprise sector.

The comapny has also deployed a 10km radius wi-fi solution for ECIL, about

65km from Bokaro. “ECIL is soon coming up with a major steel plant near Bokaro

and they have hired 3,500 Chinese employees for the project. The employees have

been put up in a township, where we deployed the wi-fi solution, ensuring zero

downtime using Cisco wireless solution,” Ghosh added.

Also recently, the company has completed a project for the fast food major,

Monginis, in Dhulagarh, which is 10km from Kolkata, in passive component

solutions. Valued at Rs 25 lakh, Epitome is optimistic about fresh orders to

come soon.
