2nd Telecom Summit-2015
The 2nd Telecom summit -2015 on “Rural Broadband Technologies and Applications for Citizen’s services” was held on 23rd January on the third day of the 23rd Convergence India, expo 2015. The summit was jointly organized by Telecom Centers of Excellence (TCOE) and Exhibitions India Group, and was supported by the Government of India (DoT, DeitY & MoRD), Service providers, Manufacturers, Industry Associations and Academia. This year, the Ministry of Rural Development (MoRD), Department of Telecommunications (DoT) and Department of Electronics & Information Technology (DeitY) came together on a common platform, with an objective to identify key applications, major challenges and optimum technology requirements for implementation of broadband in rural India.
The overall objective of the summit was to identify potential high demand applications for growth of Rural Broadband. The summit was chaired by Smt. Rita Teaotia, Special Secretary (T), DoT. The summit also had an elite panel comprising of Dr. A S Mathew, Joint Secretary (Skills and IT), MoRD; Dr. Tulika Pandey, Sc F & Dir DEiTY; and Mr Chandrasekhar, Group Director, Govt. Affairs and Public Policy, Microsoft India, among others.
The event also saw the release of “TCOE India Brochure” -2015 and “National Optic Fibre Network-Status study –a Review of the Pilot Blocks by Digital Empowerment Foundation.”
Few Recommendations that arose for developing necessary applications are:-
- Programmatic delivery of Common service centers.
- Workflow mechanism for Government services driven by IT architecture with Government User Network on top of NOFN.
- Language tools, Speech recognition services and Mobile Payments.
In the technology space the challenges for laying down Rural Broadband are:-
- Availability of appropriate technology and regular supply of power. This depends on Ease of use and cost of equipment.
- Physical access to villages and affordability of villages for using wired broadband.
- Skill development and Digital Literacy.
- Availability of right spectrum.
- Skill development of villages to access these new technologies.
The new technologies and recommendations that came out in the discussions were:-
- TV-white space or Blue sky technology.
- Super Wi-Fi and its higher version Wi-G. Also known as Blue-ocean technology.
- Carried grade services
- Public Hotspot; Wi-Fi managed by access point.
- Packetization where data packets are controlled as per a specific protocol.
- Li-Fi -uses visible light communication or infra-red and near ultraviolet (instead of radio frequency waves), part of Optical wireless communications technology, and carries much more information
- Massive MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output).
- Communication through directive antennas.
- Fiber networks, Point to Point Radio and Satellite technologies.

Who We Are
The TCOEs, set up in Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode, are an example of the Government, the Academia and the Industry working together for the sustained growth and progress of the country.
The idea of Telecom Centres of Excellence germinated with the shared realisation, by the Government and the Telecom Industry, that a high growth trajectory of telecommunications was essential for the overall progress of the country. That said, it could not be achieved without local research, development and innovations for local needs.
The TCOE initiative was converted to reality with the signing of tri-partite Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) between the Department of Telecom, Government of India.......Read More
