FourFourThree’s network infrastructure specialist, Alain Fonseca, explains the main reasons for the network’s inclusion in the India Connector project.
The network, which is scheduled to begin operating in 2019, is expected to be the largest telecommunications network in the world.
Its primary objective is to enable low-cost connectivity to the emerging markets of India and Africa, including to key urban areas such as Mumbai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad, as well as other remote regions such as the border areas of India’s western state of Assam and Pakistan’s Baluchistan.
While the network will be connected to the existing telecom network in India, it will be able to link to it via its own fibre optic cables, and the new network will also be able connect to other countries like the United States, Europe and Asia.
The existing network will remain in service, but there will be a change in the way it operates, according to FonSeca.
Instead of just delivering a high-speed fibre network, it is expected that the network can provide connectivity to areas of low-income connectivity such as remote rural areas and remote urban areas, where access is limited.
For example, the network may connect to the internet backbone of a small rural town in India’s eastern state of Tamil Nadu, or the existing fibre network of a larger city in India.
As the network is expected be the cheapest, the infrastructure and infrastructure investment will be on par with those that are available for a typical rural telecommunications project.
According to Fonsca, there is an assumption that the government will invest about Rs 1,200 crore ($1.8 billion) to build the network.
The actual investment will likely be around Rs 1.2 lakh crore ($2.5 billion), with an expected cost per kilometre (km) of about Rs 200 per square metre ($200 per square meter).
The government is expected, for example, to invest around Rs 800 crore ($8.7 billion) for the first phase of the network, to be funded by a combination of public and private sources.
The government has already announced that the cost of the project will be in the neighbourhood of Rs 7,000 crore ($12.9 billion), which will be funded from its existing infrastructure spending.
However, there are some issues that must be addressed.
First, the cost structure is still under debate.
According to the National Rural Telecommunication Development Authority (NRTA), the government’s primary objective for the project is to connect the rural population with a high speed network of high capacity, high speed internet.
The network is projected to be 100 times the capacity of the existing network in 2020, but the government is yet to make a final decision on the scale of its investment in the network until the end of 2021.
In addition, the new system will not be fully rolled out until 2021, which could delay the completion of the entire project.
FonSecra also cautions that the new Indian connectivity infrastructure is still in its infancy.
While the government has allocated funds for infrastructure projects in different regions of India, the Indian government is still looking for ways to scale up its infrastructure in remote areas.
Fonsecab is also aware that the country is still a small country with a limited infrastructure, with only two major airports, and two major highways.
In addition, there will not yet be a high level of connectivity between major cities in the country.
“The Indian government has made a lot of investments in the past but we still have a long way to go.
The Indian Government needs to find ways to speed up and build connectivity to remote regions.
This project will enable the government to connect all of the people of India,” he said.
India’s National Digital Network is a project that aims to build a network of over 10,000 fibre optic cable networks in a country of nearly three billion people.
The project has been criticised for its speed, its cost, and its slow rollout.
It is expected the project would cost at least Rs 5,000 ($7,000) per km (less than half the price of the current network) and the network could reach a maximum speed of 200 km/h (135 mph) on average.
