=> ISLAMABAD (APP) – The National Database Registrati
ISLAMABAD (APP) – The National Database Registration Authority (NADRA) has recently signed an agreement with a television channel for media coverage of February 18 general elections.
This service will be provided to all on request, but so far only a local channel has contacted in this regard, a NADRA official said here Sunday.
The Authority has recently procured a DVB-RCS satellite system that has enabled the NADRA to offer triple-play connectivity to other institutions like electronic media, he said.
The official said that around 25 sites of the TV channel will be using this facility, and later the same infrastructure will be permanently used to provide live coverage of different events for this channel.
He said the system was actually procured to efficiently provide NADRA’s more than 350 swift registration centres across the country with an access to the national database.
In addition, the NADRA has expanded its network infrastructure capability to provide voice, data and video triple-play access to planned initiatives and services that require nationwide access.
He said the Rs.93 million project covers commissioning of this 3rd generation VSAT system including one HUB installed in Islamabad and 200 remote terminals across Pakistan.
With this project the NADRA has taken a giant leap in terms of getting in sync with the telecommunication revolution and has emerged as a pioneer in the country to extend its range to the remotest sites of the country, he added.
The acquisition of this technology has enabled the authority to cater to the security required to manage the national database and other services on a par with the international standards.
