The technology arm of the HCL Group, HCL Technologies was a major telecom

software player from India in FY 2001-02. It continued with its strategy of

executing high-value communication software and service projects. Amidst a major

scare that companies with high-telecom exposure would be severely impacted, HCL

Technologies impressively managed to hold on to key accounts like Cisco Systems,

Agilent, Toshiba, and Vitesse Semiconductors. In fiscal 2001-02, it made some

significant wins like the Motorola C-Port project to develop network processors.

On account of these major accounts, HCL Technologies continued to generate a

significant revenue from the telecom vertical. In fiscal 2001-02, its exposure

to the telecom sector is estimated to be as high as 25 percent of its overall

revenues, which translates to a telecom revenue of Rs 388 crore.
