Union Minister for Communications, Electronics and Information Technology and Railways, Ashwini Vaishnaw, launched India's fastest and indigenously developed IP/MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) router in Bengaluru on Saturday. The router has a capacity of 2.4 tdps.

The router was developed by the collaboration of the government's Department of Telecom, CDOT and Nivetti. Speaking at the launch event, Ashwini Vaishnaw called the moment to be a matter of pride for the country. He called the launch of the indigenously developed router to be a major boost to the Prime Minister's vision of Digital India.

"As you know, networking is key to entire Digital India efforts. And within networking routers, a core router like this is very, very important. So, I'm so glad that this kind of complex equipment has been designed in India developed in India and made in India," the minister said.

Here are the top features of India's fastest router

-The indigenously developed router has a speed of 2.4 tbps. Terabytes per second (TBps) is the rate of data transmission. It is equivalent to 1,000 gigabytes, or one lakh crore bytes per second.

-The installation of the router will be helpful in the growth of several sectors be it the Railways communication network, power grid, telecommunications and television media, said Vaishnaw.

-MPLS is a routing technique which is used in telecommunications networks that directs data from one node to the next. The data transfer is held based on labels rather than network addresses.

-The router which has been built with a collaboration of the Department of Telecom, CDOT and Nivetti, is capable of handling 2.4 tbps data. The device will represent a leap in networking technology, promising to boost India's digital infrastructure.

-The multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) technique was first developed in the 1990s. Its main function is to speed up network connections by sending packets along predetermined network paths.

-To reduce the time of data transfer, MPLS identifies paths-network “roads", instead of identifying a series of intermediary destinations.
