Vi completes network deployment to provide connectivity across Kolkata underwater metro service

Telecom major Vi on Wednesday announced the successful completion of its network deployment across the entire underground East-West Metro corridor route in East Idnian city of Kolkata.

With this, Vi said its customers travelling via the underwater metro rail service will experience uninterrupted connectivity across the entire 16.6 kilometer route of the Green Line metro.

To ensure seamless network connectivity for travelers commuting from Howrah Maidan to Esplanade, Vi said it deployed cutting-edge network infrastructure across all 17 stations on the Green Line route, including a 10.8 kilometer stretch consisting of 6 underground stations (Phool Bagan, Sealdah, Esplanade, Mahakaran, Howrah Station, Howrah Maidan) and 11 ground / elevated stations (Teghoria, Raghunathpur, Baguiati, Dum Dum Park, Kestopur, Salt Lake Sector V, Karunamoyee, Central Park, City Centre, Bengal Chemical, and Salt Lake Stadium).

Out of these 11 elevated stations, 6 stations namely Salt Lake Sector V, Karunamoyee, Central Park, City Centre, Bengal Chemical and Salt Lake Stadium are accessible to public and other 5 stations will also be opened in due course. However, Vi has ensured complete network infrastructure deployment across all the stations. 

The major factor that differentiates the East-West metro corridor is the tunnel, which is located 13 meters below the Hooghly riverbed and 33 meters below the surface level.

To enable its customers to experience a superior network, Vi has deployed IBS (in-building solutions) inside the tunnel under the river as well as the underground metro tunnel.

Commenting on this initiative, Naveen Singhvi, Cluster Business Head - East, Vodafone Idea, said, "The inauguration of this East-West Metro corridor is a long-cherished dream for the citizens of Kolkata & Howrah. As a leading telecom operator, we are delighted to share that our network deployment across this underwater rail route will offer an uninterrupted, seamless, and superior network experience to our Vi customers. This initiative is a testament to Vi’s commitment to providing a delightful experience to our customers for a better tomorrow.”
