There are 4.6 million internet users in rural areas and about 84% of rural India is not aware of the internet opportunity. Wi-MAX has come a long way with subscriber base of 15 million across nearly 600 networks. The technology is suitable for providing broadband in rural areas.  Session II : Strategies for boosting broadband penetrations in india.

It can be curbed easily in India because it is still in the planning stage.

SISO Views and Conclusions on Workshop on LTE 1) Samsung stall event is not reported by press which reported all the other important events. The speech made by Dr.Hung Song was also not present. We feel that we should publicize the event of showcasing 802.16m and the throughput we achieved which is many fold compare to what Ericsson showcased to RIL. 2) We haven’t observed RIL visiting Samsung Stall. We should have invited all potential or interested parties personally to the event. 3) We observed from the talks of operators that they made up their mind for TD-LTE solutions. In this case we need to focus aggressively on TD-LTE solution to operators. It can even be done with demo systems which are 70 to 80% closer to commercial ones. We also observed that the Ericsson systems were not working for all three days of the event. It means that they still don’t have fully complaint TD-LTE solution but they are going ahead for trial with RIL. 4) Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) displayed TD-LTE networks along with Samsung TD-LTE dongles. It is proved that Samsung is the only commercial vendor available now with TD-LTE device (though we also heard that ST-Ericsson and Qualcomm are working on one). Samsung can capitalize the fact that Samsung can be the complete E2E solution vendor to Indian operators. 5) Green Solutions: Samsung contribution for green solution is not displayed, while every other vendor/supplier have projected their contribution towards green Page 9
