The Centre for Development of Telematics (C-DOT), the premier telecom R&D centre of the Government of India, will launch C-Sat-Fi, XGSPON and CiSTB on its 36th Foundation Day on 27th August.
C-Sat-Fi (C-DOT Satellite WiFi) will provide connectivity to unserved areas including remote islands and difficult terrains based on the optimal utilization of wireless and satellite communication. The solution is ideally suited to address disasters and emergencies and does not require expensive satellite phones but can work on any WiFi enabled phone.
C-DOT’s XGSPON (10 G Symmetrical Passive Optical Network) is an effective solution to fulfil the rapidly increasing demands of high network speeds emanating from the new dimensions of user applications like IPTV, HD video streaming, online gaming and host of other cloud based services that necessitate the seamless availability of high bandwidth.
C-DOT’s Interoperable Set Top Box (CiSTB) will prove to be a boon to the dissatisfied customers who cannot change their cable TV operator in view of the recurring costs of setting and installing the physical infrastructure afresh. Based on a portable smart card like a mobile SIM, this solution will revolutionize the experience of the cable TV operators by offering them a high degree of choice, ease and convenience without having to replace the once installed STB.
The inaugural session will be graced by Ravi Shankar Prasad, Minister of Communications, Electronics & Information Technology and Law & Justice, Government of India; Sanjay Shamrao Dhotre, Minister of State (Communications, Electronics & IT and HRD), Government of India; Anshu Prakash, Secretary – Telecom & Chairman, Digital Communications Commission; Luis Jorge Romero, Director General, ETSI; and Raimund Magis, Charge d’Affaires, European Union delegation to India.
On its Foundation day, C-DOT is also holding a technical conference as part of GB Meemamsi Lecture Series 2019, wherein telecom veterans and academicians from around the world will share their experiences and discuss innovative ways to address the numerous issues and challenges faced by the technology developers, policy makers and end-users in Internet of Things (IoT).
The conference is being jointly organized by C-DOT and European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) under the aegis of European Union (EU) funded project on “India-EU Cooperation on ICT- Related Standardization, Policy and Legislation” in association with Telecommunications Standards Development Society, India (TSDSI).
