SLT, TRC ink deal to power Lotus Tower


Jun 21, 2016 (LBO) – Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT) and the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission of Sri Lanka (TRCSL) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to be the telecommunication service partner for the Lotus Tower project, recently.

“With the signing of the MoU, SLT will bear sole responsibility for building the ICT Infrastructure for the Lotus Tower,” SLT said in a statement.

When completed, the tower will stand at a total height of 350 meters and will be the tallest tower in South Asia.

It will be the single transmission hub for telecommunications, Digital TV and radio, helping to reduce the carbon footprint in the city whilst improving the quality of transmissions.

“The Lotus Tower will be a multi-functional telecommunication tower will provide infrastructure for latest Digital Terrestrial Video Broadcasting network, FM broadcasting and telecom service providers helping them to enhance the quality of transmissions and improving access to high quality ICT services,” Sunil S Sirisena, director general, TRCSL said.

Once the envisioned ICT infrastructure has been laid, other telecom operators will also have the opportunity to provide their services by leveraging on the state-of-the-art ICT infrastructure at the Lotus Tower.
