To extend this sort of network connectivity right upto the Battalion level, about Rs. 229 crores were spent, and state of the art Data Centres for data storage have been set up, apart from the Main Data Centre, a Disaster Recovery Data Centre (in a different seismic zone) and Mini Data Centres at Frontier HQrs. Attention has been paid to network security and data loss prevention by establishing sufficient cyber security measures for the network.
