While still deciding on how to respond to the net neutrality discussion earlier this year, the Indian government seems to be keen on implementing its own solutions to bridge the Internet divide by launching custom solutions to bring connectivity to rural/remote areas.
Launched yesterday are four of these:
- Long distance Wi-Fi system: capable of providing 100Mbps broadband speed to users of distant locations.
- Direct Optical Fibre at WAN interface, which enables high speed connectivity with consistent bandwidth.
- Mesh technology, which makes connectivity possible even where direct Line of Sight (LoS)is not present.
- Support to link redundancy in case of failure of one radio/link.
Solar powered Wi-Fi system: designed for outdoor environments, inaccessible terrains, where there is no guarantee for continuous power.
100Gbps OFC Link: versatile mini 100G OTN (Optical Transport Network) platform based on the latest standards offering the ease of being deployed in both Greenfield networks and existing OTN(Optical Transport Network) environments.
C-DOT Next Generation Network (NGN) in MTNL Network: enables TELCOs to make a smooth transition from legacy TDM ( Time Division Multiplexing) technology to advance VoIP Telecom technology.
What do you think about the role of these in taking broadband to every nook and corner of India?
