The WhiteSpace Alliance to organize its Global Summit on 26-27 October, 2015 in New Delhi, India. The conference is titled “Delivering on the Promise of “Digital India”: How Sharing of TV Band Spectrum is Enabling Broadband Services”. The WSA Summit will illustrate plans and results of these whitespace deployments in India. Equipment vendors and service providers will share lessons learned, and senior government officials and global regulators will discuss implications for future implementation.
India has amended big investments to implement National Optical Fiber Network (NOFN) as a high performance backbone network connecting hundreds of Gram Panchayats, local administrative entities providing a wide range of basic services to millions of citizens.
Sharing insights on the Summit, Dr. Apurva N. Mody, Chairman of WhiteSpace Alliance said, Providing Internet access to underserved populations is critical for growth in the New Millennium. India is committed to bringing those economic benefits to its 1.3 billion citizens. WSA is collaborating enthusiastically with the Government to demonstrate how whitespace solutions can deliver broadband services reliably and cost-efficiently to realize the “Digital India” vision.
WhiteSpace Alliance is working closely with the Government of India in its groundbreaking “Digital India” initiative. Now, the Ministry of Communications is collaborating with WSA and the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay) in commercial pilots to provide “middle mile” connectivity to enable next-generation services such as Digital Inclusion, e-Health and e-Education.
