CII Telecom and Broadband Summit
The Confederation of Indian Industries (CII), organised a Telecom and Broadband
Summit which saw the participation of several heavy weights from the Indian
telecom Industry. The theme was India- The emerging Telecom Hub. The summit
examined key issues that were pertinent in todays telecommunication scene
like the broadband penetration, WiMax technology and policy and regulations
governing the telecom and broadband sector to name a few. Telecom majors like
Nortel, Sify and Hutchinson Essar, D-Link and Idea Celluar participated in the
event. The event highlighted various trends in the telecom industry.
One of the observations made by the industry experts was
that broadband has not been able to achieve its targets. The broadband technology
has not diffused into rural areas and this is obviously a matter of concern.
Service providers are coming up with innovative solutions to take broadband
to rural India.
