How telecom spread to remote areas in India

500 views

Published on

Bishnu Pradhan explains how the first telephone exchanges were setup in India in the 1980s. This presentation was made for Dr Ramamritham's class on ICTs for Development - hence the emphasis on the rural rollouts of CDOT.

Rich (never-seen-before) photographs bring out the harsh environments these telephone exchanges had to survive in. They brought about an impact akin to the setting up the Railways a century earlier. They brought Indians closer promoting family ties, business ties and employment opportunities.

Also making a guest appearance are Dr. Neil Gershenfeld of MIT (you can spot him in the picture of Pabal) and Dr. P. Anandan who heads Microsoft Research in India (you can spot him making a phone call in the Internet Telephony picture).

Dr Bishnu is a cofounder of Agrocom Software (inc 2006).
