BYOD opens up new avenues for testing tools, security solutions firms

HYDERABAD, JUNE 5:
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) or the concept of bringing employees’ smart digital devices has opened up new business opportunities for testing tools and security solutions firms.

BYOD is no longer a choice for companies and organisations. They will have to allow their staff to use Internet-connected devices to improve productivity and save time. But what worries the firms is not just security of data that flows in and out of IT network.

“The number of smart devices that are in use is mind blowing. They (staff) change every other month as and when new models hit the market. It is impossible for corporates to keep track of the new releases and take a decision on whether to allow that device,” Mr Sriram Rajaram, President (Strategy and Corporate Development), Cigniti Technologies, told Business Line.

The Hyderabad-based testing tools company is setting up a lab to provide testing solutions for corporates.

“We are going to buy those smart devices. We can use these devices to test their compatibility with business applications of different firms,” he said.

BT study

In a recent study, BT (British Telecom) found that cyber security threats, accidental or intentional employee data loss and increasing use of personal devices on employers’ networks are the three biggest security risks perceived by IT decision-makers.

The BT research also showed that 82 per cent of companies say they already allow BYOD or will do within the next 24 months.

ICSA Labs, an arm of Verizon, too is offering a testing programme for determining whether these devices meet the latest security standards for connecting with VPNs (virtual private networks).

Michelin opens two more TyrePlus stores




HYDERABAD, JUNE 6:
Michelin Tyres on Wednesday announced the opening up of two TyrePlus concept stores in Hyderabad, thereby taking the number of stores up from 16 to 18 across the country.

Through these new touch points, Michelin Tyres, part of a global leading tyre manufacturing French major, Michelin seeks to offer new retail experience for the consumers. This is something which TyrePlus stores offer across the world, Mr. B. Kumar, Country Head-Distribution, Michelin India, said.

The company appointed MV Tyre World and Xenex as its franchisee partners in Hyderabad.

Mr. Kumar said, "In today’s busy world, where people have money but less time, such stores offer a hassle free ownership and service experience. In these TyrePlus stores, customers can buy Michelin tyres and tyres of other manufactures and also other car accessories.

They also get access to quality after sales service, which makes a difference."

The company currently procures tyres from its global manufacturing bases and supplies them in the Indian market to the original equipment manufacturers like Honda, Mercedes and Volvo Trucks and in the replacement segment.

NEW PLANT

Michelin is in the process of setting up of a manufacturing base in Chennai, Tamil Nadu for truck tyres and expects to commission this during the year. Barely 17 per cent of truck tyre market is radial tyres. This offers immense scope for Michelin to tap into once the plant is ready, he said.

3-day dairy show in Hyderabad next month

HYDERABAD, JUNE 7:
A three-day Dairy Show will be held in Hyderabad beginning July 13. The organisers said members from dairy farmers’ association and corporate firms in the sector, and other stakeholders will take part in deliberations on how to move up the value chain.

The show would be held at HITEX exposition facility at Madhapur here.

“The event will expose the stakeholders to best practices, technologies, policy issues and financial aspects concerning the industry,” Mr P.S.L.N. Rao, Director of Active Exhibitions and Conferences, has said.

Indian Dairy Association, Assocham, SERP (Society for Elimination of Rural Poverty) and Andhra Pradesh Government are supporting the event.

Dr M.V. Reddy, Director of AP Department of Animal Husbandry, has said that there was a need to improve the quality of animals in order to improve incomes. He said the Government had started an initiative in this regard.

“We are importing best of the bulls from the US and Europe to crossbreed them with local animals in order to get high-milk yielding animals,” he said.

He said importing technologies would help the dairy industry in the country. “Restricted entry (of foreign players) would help the country. They have got good technologies in breeding and semen production. We can invite that,” he said.

Huawei launches telepresence product in Hyderabad market


Huawei Enterprise Business Group, one of the three divisions of Chinese telecom and IT solutions major Huawei, today unveiled its video-based communications product – TP 3118, and hopes to achieve a 25 per cent market share for the product in the first year.

Iric Yu, president (enterprise business) of Huawei in India, said the telepresence product was unmatched in terms of quality in picture and sound besides being cost-competitive.This solution offers a real-life telepresence experience at lower bandwidth by VME (video motion enhancement) and HP (high profile) dual-core drive, according to him.

Of the expected sales of 500 video conferencing sets by all the companies in the current year, Huawei alone plans to sell a quarter of this number.
“We always grew by leaps and bounds as our products and applications demonstrate superior performance because they all evolved from Huawei’s core telecom technology experience,” he said, while stating that they were the only company in the world that can offer unified communications solutions with interoperability extending even to mobile phones.

Huawei’s enterprise business division, launched in India last September, has so far clocked a sales turnover of $50 million and hopes to increase the topline to about $50 million in the next nine to 12 months, according to Eric. Globally, it has a 30 per cent market share for the telepresence product, he said.

Huawei is also planning to introduce Virtual Teller Machines (VTM) that help banks to expand their operations in remote areas where the bank branches do not exist, he said.

The company’s consumer division will also be introducing its latest smart phone, recently launched in Europe, in India as well though the exact time line and the price are yet to be finalised, according to the company officials.

Over 1.8 lakh defence land records digitised

HYDERABAD: In a major achievement, the Defence Estates Office (DEO) in Hyderabad has digitised over 1.8 lakh land documents — general land records (GLRs) and military land records (MLRs) — of the defence department in the state and 10 districts of Maharashtra.

In the wake of defence land scams, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) wanted to digitise all its properties across the country under 'Raksha Bhoomi' project.

"As part of the project, 1.8 lakh documents, some of them from the British era pertaining to GLRs and MLRs, were digitised and microfilmed," defence estates officer of Hyderabad A V Dharma Reddy told STOI.

The MoD, which had chosen Hyderabad and Chennai for the pilot project, had sanctioned Rs eight lakh for digitisation and microfilming. "We started the project last September and completed it this month," Dharma Reddy said.

"We will hand over the data in the form of CD/any other storage device to the MoD. Once the security issues are thrashed out, the system can always be linked to a wide area network so that online access can be provided," the official added further.

"We can get accurate information of both GLRs and MLRs through this project. The DEO, Hyderabad, becomes the first defence estate office in the country in digitising the land records under the 'Raksha Bhoomi' project," Reddy added.

Railways lets Metro pick girder type

In a relief to the Hyderabad Metro Rail project, the Indian Railways has agreed to allow the Metro rail officials to choose the type of girder they want to use (either steel or concrete girders) to cross the railway tracks. The HMR viaducts will cross over the tracks of the Indian Railways at eight railway crossings in the city. The decision was taken during a meeting between officials of the Railway board, South Central Railway and the HMR on Monday.

The additional member (works), Railway Board, Mr A. K. Gupta, who was in Hyderabad, held a meeting with HMR managing director N.V.S. Reddy, senior officials and engineers of HMR, SCR and L&T on a wide variety of technical and safety-related issues of the metro rail project and the interface between HMR and Indian Railways.

Issues related to Metro rail technical parameters, the supportive role of the Railway Board in the safety certification mechanism to be followed by the commissioner of Railway Safety, etc., were discussed at the meeting. Design issues; schedule of dimensions (mandatory static and moving clearances during metro train movement); detailed technical approvals for the designs and drawings of Metro rail viaduct over the tracks of Indian Railways at the eight railway crossings; construction methodology of metro rail crossings, etc., were deliberated.

Mr Gupta inspected the progress of the Metro rail project between Nagole-Mettuguda, Uppal depot works and segment casting at the Uppal casting yard along with N.V.S. Reddy and senior engineers of SCR. As many as 32 foundations and 12 piers (pillars) have been completed so far in this stretch apart from pre-casting of 30 segments.

Alarming Dip In Water Levels Raises Fears Of Acute Shortage


Hyderabad: The residents of Madhapur,Gachibowli and Miyapur have much to worry about in case the city sees a dull monsoon this year.
With the water-table in Rangareddy district (that covers all these areas among others) dropping by an alarming 4.14 metres as per the annual report of the state groundwater department released this week,officials speculate an acute water shortage in these localities over the next few weeks.Only a healthy monsoon can bail the district out,they say.
While Rangareddy has seen a steady drop in groundwater levels since 2008,the dip this year is the most drastic.From 12.03 metres in 2011 (water was available at this depth) the water table has slipped to 16.17 metres in 2012,pushing the district into a drought-like situation.In fact,Rangareddy is only behind Prakasam (drop of 5.46 metres) on the list of districts in Andhra Pradesh facing a severe water crunch.
Officials attribute this drop to the massive demand-supply gap which they say has been widening over the past few years.While the population of this district,comprising 37 mandals spread over an area of 7,493sq.km,has bloated from 35 lakh (approx) to about 53 lakh (as per Census 2011) and the number of borewells shot from just a handful to a few dozen,the supply has remained much the same.
The water content in this region,like in Hyderabad district,is quite low as the soil here is largely composed of granite.Over-exploitation of the resource is bound therefore to result in a drop in the water table, explained N Srinivas,assistant director,state ground water department.According to him,the situation could worsen if the district did not register sufficient rainfall this monsoon.
Scientists at the National Geophysical Research Institute (NGRI) share similar concerns as their records show a high 30% rainfall deficit in Rangareddy in 2011.For the entire state,the drop was as much as 20%.Most of the district falls under the urban zone.The extraction is,therefore,much higher here.Unless the region witnesses a sustained monsoon,it is very difficult to fix this gap, said R Rangarajan,a scientist with the Hyderabadbased institute.Elaborating on the poor water situation in RR,he said that only 2.5% of the soil was capable of holding water.
Not only does this limited supply cater to the demand of residents but also supports agricultural activity that is rampant in some parts of the district.There is also exhaustive real estate growth here with residential apartments and resorts springing up by the dozen every day.That the district is reeling under such a severe water crunch is no surprise, said B Venkateswara Rao,professor of water resources and coordinator,Centre for Earth Atmosphere and Weather Modification Technologies with JNTU.

HMR's eco-friendly stations floor official

Union Urban Development Secretary Sudhir Krishna was all praise for the project

Eco-friendly overhead stations designed by the L&T Metro Rail Hyderabad engineers for the city's metro rail project providing for natural ventilation and thereby reducing power consumption is worth emulating by other metro rail projects underway in different cities.

This was stated by Union Urban Development Secretary Sudhir Krishna on Wednesday after witnessing the ongoing construction at the Uppal depot and pier works.

He mentioned that he would be recommending the eco-friendly design to the other metro projects.

PLANTATION DRIVE

Mr. Krishna was also appreciative of the successive translocation of the uprooted trees along the three corridors and the plantation drive. A documentary of the exercise should be sent to the Central government so that other developmental projects could follow suit, he said.

PASSENGER FARES

Hyderabad project's approach in pre-fixing passenger fares and fare escalation formula before the bid process and issuing fare notification on these lines had insulated the project from possible legal disputes at a later stage, a press release said.

PROMISES FUNDS

He also promised that the Centre would positively consider funding additional pedestrian facilities being planned like skywalks, bicycle tracks, street furniture, etc., under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) based on the study being conducted by IIT Delhi. A sum of Rs.19 lakh was already sanctioned for the study by the Centre.

PRESENTATION

Mr. N.V.S. Reddy, in his presentation informed the Union Secretary that field works were in full swing in Nagole-Mettuguda stretch on corridor-III and at Miyapur on corridor-I.

Mr. Reddy highlighted the balanced approach that was followed in allocation of risks between the government authority and the private concessionaire.

Traffic restrictions for CPP from next week

HYDERABAD: Even as the GHMC is set to kick-start Charminar Pedistrianization works from Charminar to Sardar Mahal in the coming week, traffic restrictions will be put in place, much to the consternation of traders. Traffic officials say they are ready with diversion plans and are waiting for cues from GHMC.

DCP Murgesh Kumar Singh told TOI that the objective is to ensure minimal traffic flow towards Charminar. "We have identified the road beside Mecca Masjid leading to Khilwat for diversion. At Gulzar Houz we have identified the Kali Kamaan road for diverting onward traffic," he said adding that they have not yet had any communication with the GHMC about the day of beginning of works.

Last year, traffic restrictions caused much heartburn among the traders as works on the Gulzar Houz - Charminar stretch affected Ramaadan shopping. A week ago, GHMC officials inspected CPP works along with MIM leaders. Officials decided to take up works at Sardar Mahal stretch with the aim to finish it before Ramadaan.A trader of the Old City Traders Association expressed that traders are not opposed to the project but are skeptical about its execution. "The traders will not allow works to go on after the start of Ramaadan as this would hit the business. The authorities promised us a lot but delivered very little. The stand of traders on this will come to light only after discussions," he said.

A well informed source associated with the project opined that traffic management and town planning are central to successful implantation of the project. "It has been suggested to the corporation to first impose traffic diversion according to master plan and leave them in place for a while, to make the public accustomed to it. But implementing temporary diversions which are not in accordance with the plan will only give reasons to complain," he said.

When contacted, senior GHMC official said that they would approach the traffic police on Monday to apprise them of the situation and would start work in the coming week.

Smile Tellapur Technocity to become Reality Soon. 100 Acre Prime Commecrial and Residential Township!

Five years after the proposal for the development of mega integrated township at Tellapur near Ramachandrapuram, the project will finally take off soon. But the project will come up in 100 acres not in 400 acres as proposed earlier.

The HMDA) has agreed for the revised project proposal and sent it to the Municipal Administration and Urban Development (MA&UD) department for approval.

The project developer Tellapur Technocity Pvt Ltd proposed the integrated township at Tellapur by a consortium led by Tishman Speyers and ICICI and Nagarjuna Constructions Company in 2007 along with the erstwhile Hyderabad Urban Development Authority (Huda) on revenue sharing basis.

The project costing about Rs 2000 crore includes an SEZ for IT companies, offices and residential space in 400 acre close to the Outer Ring Road (ORR). The project is also about five kilometers from Hitec city and Financial District at Gachibowli. As per the original proposal 30 million built up area was to be provided in the township in eight years for Class A commercial, residential, recreational and mixed use. A special purpose vehicle Tellapur Technocity Pvt Ltd was also formed after taking over the land.

The consortium members took the 400 acres land at the rate of Rs 4.21 crore per acre from the Huda. The developer paid about Rs 420 crore (1/4th) of the total Rs 1,700 crore amount immediately. The rest of the amount was supposed to be paid within six months.

But the developer did not pay the amount due to slump in the real estate market and also 240 acres allotted for the project is in legal wrangles. The urban development authority also did not insist for the balance amount payment since major part of the allotted land is in litigation.

As the real estate market is recovering slowly for the past one year, Tellapur Technocity representatives mooted the proposal to take up the project but in the 100 acres for which the amount (Rs 420 crore) was already paid in 2007. After the revised proposals were submitted by the developer, it was sent to MA&UD by the HMDA recently.

The erstwhile Huda agreed to provide infrastructure like laying of special road from Wipro to Tellapur project site and Project site to Outer Ring Road at the time of agreement. Since the project is revised, the revenue share to the authority will also come down automatically. It is also proposed to withdraw some conditions like provision of infrastructure to the developer, sources said.

When contacted ORR project director V Samuel Anand Kumar said the state government had asked certain clarifications from the HMDA especially financial implications on the authority due to revised proposal. The details would be provided to the government soon, he said.

Smile Hyderabad News.Hyderabad Airport Road. One more expressway ramp to be ready by June-end! :-)

One more intermediate ramp offering connectivity for those intending to join the PVNR Elevated Expressway in between will be ready by the end of June.

The 11.8 km long expressway connecting the city with the international airport at Shamshabad, has already been equipped with three connections, up-ramps at Lakshminagar and Aramgarh and a down-ramp at Upparpally. Of a total of six, these three ramps were made available for traffic last year.

Now, work has been progressing on the up-ramp at Upparpally and heading for the final phase. Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) officials said it would be ready in all aspects by the next month end.

“With little finishing touches, we expect to open it for traffic around first or second week of July,” said an official.

Though PVNR Elevated Expressway was inaugurated in October 2009, work on the three sets of exit and entry ramps planned for it has been getting delayed due to various reasons.

Unresolved issues

Even now, two more connections to the expressway remain mired in issues. The acquisition of land parcel pertaining to the Defence Ministry has not been resolved yet at Lakshminagar which not only has been affecting the ramp work but also that of the service road to be done by the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC).

“GHMC is to pursue the matter on acquisition of land and we are waiting for it to be solved. Still, where ever clear space is available for the ramp, we are taking up the work,” he said.

Relocation of a place of worship here too delayed commencement of work.

For the down-ramp at Aramgarh, the slow pace of pipelines shifting by Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply & Sewerage Board (HMWSSB) delayed the progress.

The water board was initially provided with Rs.3.70 crore and later provided with an additional Rs.1.30 crore by the HMDA.

“The new lines have been laid and the HMWSSB has to connect it to the mainline and pull out the old connections. Once they finish it, we can commence work,” added the official.

IIT-Delhi roped in for Hyderabad metro rail study

HYDERABAD: The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), New Delhi, will soon take up a study for the purpose of integrating the different modes of transport and provisions for pedestrian movement in the city with Hyderabad Metro Rail Ltd (HMRL) commissioning the report on Saturday.

The study will focus on the different modes of transport and non-motorized transport (NMT) facilities in the city apart from pedestrian facilities and cycling routes. The Centre has sanctioned about Rs 19 lakh for the feasibility study under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission. The report is to be ready in five months.

NVS Reddy, the HMRL managing director, said that the scheme will make the city's Metro Rail project a pioneering model for the country and facilitate Hyderabad's restructuring as an eco-friendly city with a low carbon footprint.

The managing director said that as a part of the study, the said IIT would identify inter-change points for different modes of transport and pedestrian access facilities within half-a-kilometre to one-kilometre distance of a metro rail station and cycling and other NMT access requirements within 3km of a metro station.

Access facilities for transfer of passengers from bus stops, MMTS stations and railway terminals to and from metro rail stations will be identified. The study will also provide the basis for running of a dedicated feeder bus services ("merry go-round services") for metro rail stations surrounding areas and colonies.

Based on the expected passenger load at each station, the researchers will suggest pedestrian access facilities for metro rail stations, provision of footpaths and bicycle tracks, parking facilities for cars and two-wheelers at and near metro stations and sky-walks below the metro rail viaduct. The sky-walks will give direct access to nearby office, shopping complexes, malls, school buildings apart from facilitating safe crossing at busy junctions.

"Based on the feasibility study, financial assistance will be sought for provision of these facilities under JNNURM and other Central schemes," Reddy said. He said that stage-I metro rail works were on in full swing and, so far, 57 metro rail pillar foundations have been excavated with 50 foundations and 20 piers (pillars) having been erected on the Nagole-Mettuguda (corridor III) stretch.

HYDERABAD: The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), New Delhi, will soon take up a study for the purpose of integrating the different modes of transport and provisions for pedestrian movement in the city with Hyderabad Metro Rail Ltd (HMRL) commissioning the report on Saturday.

The study will focus on the different modes of transport and non-motorized transport (NMT) facilities in the city apart from pedestrian facilities and cycling routes. The Centre has sanctioned about Rs 19 lakh for the feasibility study under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission. The report is to be ready in five months.

NVS Reddy, the HMRL managing director, said that the scheme will make the city's Metro Rail project a pioneering model for the country and facilitate Hyderabad's restructuring as an eco-friendly city with a low carbon footprint.

The IIT-Delhi will conduct a study for the Hyderabad Metro Rail Ltd (HMR), which will explore and suggest measures to integrate different modes of transport — the MMTS, the APSRTC, and SCR services — with the metro rail so as to ensure a seamless travel experience for commuters. Pedestrian facilities, cycling and other non-motorised modes of transport at Metro Rail stations will also be explored.

“The study report will be prepared within five months; and based on its assessment, central financial assistance will be sought for the provision of these facilities under the JNNURM and other government schemes,” said N.V.S. Reddy, managing director, HMR. The IIT will identify interchange points of different modes of transport, pedestrian access facilities within 0.5 km to 1km of metro rail radius, and cycling and other non-motorised access requirements within 3km radius of Metro stations.

Access facilities for the transfer of passengers from bus stops, MMTS stations and railway terminals to and from metro rail stations will be identified. The study will also provide the basis for running dedicated feeder bus services in metro rail catchment areas and colonies as well as activity areas around Metro rail stations. The sky-walks will give direct access to the nearby office and shopping complexes, malls, and school buildings.. “The feasibility study costing `19 lakh, which was sanctioned by the Centre under the JNNURM scheme, will aim to make the HMR project a better model for the country and facilitate redesigning Hyderabad city as an eco-friendly city with less carbon emissions,” Mr Reddy explained.

Mr Reddy said that work on the stage-I of the Metro Rail was going on in full swing, and that 57 Metro Rail pillar foundations had been excavated. He said 50 foundations and 20 piers (pillars) had been completed along the Nagole-Mettuguda stretch of corridor III in the city.
