Title: Enabling India using Telecom Technologies


1
Enabling India using Telecom Technologies
  • Dreams of TeNeT Group

Prof. Ashok Jhunjhunwala, IITM, Chennai,
India ashok_at_tenet.res.in
2
TeNeT Group
  • An interdisciplinary group of 15 faculty members
    at IITM
  • started in 1994 with a dream of enabling India
    have 100 million telephone connections
  • when India barely had 8 million connections
  • target revised somewhere along the way to 200
    million telephone and Internet Connections
  • worked on technology, policy and operations level
  • India today has 90 million connections
  • but more important, the stage is set to get the
    200 million target

3
India with a billion people is a large market,
but60 of Urban households can spend less than
7 per month on Telecom
Monthly telecom expenditure (assuming 4 income
can be spent on telecom) 4 7.2
10.4 14.4 20.8 33.6
52 144
65 million Urban homes
India needs Telecom CAPEX to go down to 165 per
line requires disruptive technologies
4
TeNeT Group at IITM took up the challenge
  • Incubated/ supported a dozen plus product
    companies and worked with operators to drive down
    CAPEX
  • Midas Communications Banyan Networks
  • NMSWorks Tejas Networks
  • Nilgiri Networks Chennai Kavigal
  • OOPS NeuroSynaptic
  • Jataayu Nextge Systems
  • Benchmark Systems Indus technolgies
  • Vortex Technologies iSofTech - Blooma
  • Capex per line down from 1000 per line seven
    years ago to270 per line
  • Telecom is booming in India
  • India will add 150 million lines in the next 7
    years as CAPEX is driven below 165

5
corDECT Wireless in Local Loop

    not-so-good-quality existing copper lines
  • providing 128 kbps connection in 90 cities at 16
    per month

Going Forward
  • TeNeT Group dreams
  • provide Internet connection to every village of
    India and use it to drive Rural economy
  • can we double the per capita rural GDP in ten
    years?
  • Drive Broadband Internet Connectivity to homes,
    small and medium offices and IT enable them
  • Drive to create a couple of a billion dollar IT
    and Telecom PRODUCT company from India
  • Become world leaders in a couple of technology
    areas (wireless could be one)

12
Center for Excellence inWireless Technology
  • 4G Technology innovation
  • Test bed demonstration
  • Creation of IPR portfolio and licensing
  • engagement with standards activities worldwide
    (ITU, TIA/ETSI, IEEE) to include Indian IPRs in
    standard
  • Standardization and Licensing
  • standardisation and driving the regulatory
    aspects (along with the supporting technical
    work)
  • Orchestration of value creation for India
  • trial of 4G technology demonstrator by operators
  • launch of commercial 4G systems
  • applications development

13
The (Un)Affordability ofComputing
  • IT Tipping Point
  • Software costs more than Hardware (Dana
    Blankenhorn)
  • USD 484 for white box
  • USD 546 for MS-Windows and Office
  • Piracy is not the solution
  • (90 piracy levels in India in key verticals)...
  • .....and neither is non-consumption
  • Alternatives TVSTB, Cell-phones...? Really?
  • Broadband Growth depends on Computer Growth!

14
What do we need
  • TCO for Computing with Broadband Internet
  • 50 to 70 per month
  • not affordable to more than10 million families
  • We need TCO of 10 to 15 per month
  • to target 100 million Indian homes
  • low cost thin clients
  • Broadband connectivity

15
Dream of enabling Creation ofRural Wealth
16
Rural India has700 million people
  • represents average of developing economies in
    terms of Population Vs Income
  • in 600,000 villages in India (about 1000
    people per village with per-capita income of
    0.40 per day)
  • Can technologies make a significant difference in
    life of such people?
  • Can it bring to them health Education
  • Can it significantly enhance their incomes?

17
To Scale to all the villages in India
  • One needs
  • Technology
  • Sustainable Business Model
  • Organisation which thinks and acts Rural

18
Innovative Technology to connect Rural India
  • BSNL (state owned incumbent) has fibre
    connectivity to most county headquarters (taluka)
  • CorDECT Wireless in Local Loop developed at IITM,
    India
  • provides a telephone line and Internet connection
    in a 30 Km radius
  • can connect 85 of Indian villages
  • start-up costs very low

19
Business ModelUse Local Entrepreneurs to drive
ICT
  • Entrepreneur-driven operator assisted telephone
    booths (STD PCOs) introduced in India in 1987
  • Today in urban areas
  • 950,000 such PCOs covering every street of
    smallest town
  • generate 25 of total telecom income
  • 300 million people use these PCOs
  • Lesson for Rural
  • To serve Rural people with incomesless than
    1/day, aggregate demandand let Entrepreneurs
    drive it

Aid/ Grant does not scale Successful Enterprises
can scale to all villages
20
Innovative Business Models
  • n-Logue A Rural Service Provider
  • aggregate demand into a kiosk
  • owned driven by a local entrepreneur
  • 1000 (including taxes) per Kiosk providing
    telephone, Internet, multimedia PC with
    web-camera, printer and power back-up for PC
  • plus Indian language software, video conferencing
    software, training and maintenance
  • set up by a village entrepreneur on the lines of
    urban PCOs
  • provides telephone, stand-alone Computer and
    Internet services
  • needs 75 per month to break even (7cents per
    person per month)
