The network has been fully designed and developed in India. The DCN was today dedicated to the nation by Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar.
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.”
“The network has been entirely designed and developed in India.

HCL Infosystems is privileged to have the opportunity to successfully partner in yet another mission critical program of national importance - the Defence Communication Network”, he added.
The state-of-the-art, fully secure DCN is the largest single satellite network in the Indian Defense Forces, spread across the country. This integrated communication architecture between the Army, Navy and 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, IDS and SFC.
