DIRECTORATE GENERAL OF SYSTEMS & DATA MANAGEMENT CENTRAL BOARD OF EXCISE & CUSTOMS www.icegate.gov.in www.cbec.gov.in IT CONSOLIDATION PROGRAMME : Wide Area Network (WAN) Project
About IT Consolidation Programme (ITCP)
Wide Area Networks (WAN) at 582 CBEC locations
(One WAN point per building)
using MPLS (Multi Protocol Label Switching) Technology
bandwidth on demand
Local Area Networks (LAN) at 1200 buildings , thin clients, peripherals (printers etc), UPS, DG sets
Data Centers – Three data centres - Primary, Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery
Project Monitoring and program management - M/s PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) (supported by M/S CMS) for inter-vendor coordination, Service level monitoring (For eg: Monitoring Network Availability, Quality of Service (QoS) etc)
OBJECTIVE : To provide quality services to all stake holders , including tax payers, by consolidating CBEC’s information technology (IT) infrastructure
The IT Consolidation Project will enable
Roll out of ICES 1.5 – this upgraded version of ICES would be deployed on Oracle 10g and service all locations, including current ones
Roll out of ACES – the newly developed Central Excise & Service Tax workflow application
Data Warehouse – Single window data repository of CBEC data for decision support in tax planning, risk management etc
Upgraded ICEGATE facilities
Upgraded Risk Management System
Upgraded iCERT infrastructure
Corporate Mail facilities to all officers
Other initiatives such as APIS, Intranet and Knowledge Management system etc. in due course
Existing v/s Future Scenario – WAN/ LAN
Present Wide area network called Indian Customs and Excise Network (ICENET) covering 35 Customs (ICES) locations
Existing WAN connectivity is through dedicated 64 kbps or 2 Mbps point to point leased lines
Existing LAN in Customs House based on structured UTP cabling
Some Central Excise offices have building wide LANs
Augmented network infrastructure to meet the data, voice and video communication requirements of the Department
All India Wide Area Network (WAN) for around 582 CBEC buildings (one WAN point in each building)
All buildings connected to central data centre through Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) based network
All offices of CBEC connected to the Centralised Data Centre combined with ISDN connectivity for other offices

Specifications of Communication Room
A communication room needs to be identified at each building where the WAN / LAN equipment will be installed.
Size of communication room:
A room of size at least 6’ x 6’ would generally be sufficient for the purpose. However, for Category A sites and sites where a floor mounted rack will also be needed for LAN, a larger room of size up to 8’ x 6’ may be required.
In case the ceiling is higher than 8’ the AC requirement may have to be assessed accordingly.
Specifications of Communication Room A dedicated room is preferred for the purpose. However, in case a dedicated room of appropriate size is not available then following rooms may be used, provided sufficient space is available for accommodating the required equipment. As an exceptional scenario, if no room is available at all, then a segregated area in the common hall/room should be designated as the WAN / LAN point. Care is to be exercised to ensure that sufficient area is delimited in order to securely accommodate the required installation. The room of AC / JC If no separate room is available Air conditioned room housing PC’s or servers Other Formations Room presently housing the communication routers DRI Room housing the SERMON servers Central Excise Server room housing the ICES servers Customs Suggested Communication room Formation
Attributes of Communication Room
Should be so chosen that it has at least one suitable brick wall space available where required equipment can be mounted. The equipment should preferably not be located near a window.
The wall should not be the outer wall of the building or a wall common with toilet / water storage to minimize the chances of water seepage in future.
Only if suitable brick wall is not available then a table of minimum size 2.5’ x 2.5’ is required to be provided for rack installation. The table should be firm wooden or steel table with a minimum load bearing capacity of 80 kgs.
The communication room should have UPS power points (of rating 1 KVA or above) and proper earthing for WAN equipment. In case UPS of rating 1 KVA or more is not available then it should be procured locally.
The communication room should be air conditioned. The equipment is required to be maintained in a dust free environment and at an ambient temperature of 25 deg Centigrade round the clock.
Any UPS of over 1 KVA should preferably not be kept in the communication room on account of the heat generation. In case the battery pack is a separate unit, the UPS may be kept inside the Communication room while the battery pack kept outside in a ventilated area. In case the UPS is a rack mountable compact unit and a separate space cannot be provided, a minimum distance of 2’ be maintained from the communication equipment.
The WAN equipment will be installed in one 9U size rack in all Category B, C and D WAN sites. The size of the rack is 2’ x 2’ x 2’.
In case of Category A sites BSNL will install following additional equipment for providing fiber connectivity. The exact configuration will differ depending on local practice and availability of type of equipment with the BSNL:
i. A separate rack for Multiplexer which may be wall mounted or floor mounted (Max size – 3’ x 1’, height - 6’).
ii. A Cable locker which will be wall mounted( Max size – 4’ x 6’, depth – 6”).
iii. A small wall mounted terminal box less than 1’ x 1’ in size.
The size of LAN equipment will be decided by the number of users in the site.
At small sites with less than 24 users only one switch will be required which may be installed inside the WAN rack itself.
At sites with larger number of users a floor mounted rack will be used which will house the multiple switches.
At very large sites, LAN for each office may be terminated locally while only one cable runs between the office and the communication room.`
