To share its vision of Network society, Ericson hosted ‘Ericsson connect’ in New Delhi. At the event, the company also announced the Radio Dot System and the RBS6402 picocell (supports LTE Speed up to 300Mbps), to optimize indoor coverage.
Ericsson’s white paper “India 2020: Bringing the Networked Society to Life,” highlights factors that will contribute towards creating a Digital India by 2020 and achieving the objectives and targets of the National Telecom Policy-2012 (NTP-2012) to extend the reach of broadband in the country.
Chris Houghton, Head of Region India, says: “Broadband has the potential to help bring about inclusive growth in India by extending education, healthcare and financial inclusion to rural areas and lower income groups. In order to achieve and deliver on this vision, government and industry need to actively partner to tackle the constraints of limited spectrum availability, device affordability and network performance gaps indoors while at the same time meeting the pent-up demand for mobile broadband and stimulating interest in and uptake of services in new markets with new revenue models.”
Worldwide proven and demonstrated benefits include improving education via online learning, securing the safety of citizens, helping refugees and aiding small scale entrepreneurs.
