India gearing for its first 20 ‘smart cities’
Will the idea change the socio economic scenario?

The upsurge in urban population in Indian cities will intensify societal challenges on every conceivable level. To improve the quality of life and attract investment in cities, proactive measures are now essential for government agencies. They will inevitably become increasingly dependent on ICT in order to develop and manage their assets and infrastructures more efficiently and effectively. This facilitates – and also demands – elimination of ‘silos’ within city authorities. In 2016, India’s government has selected 100 municipalities to turn substantial parts of their urbanizations into ‘smart cities’.


But what are smart cities, exactly?


A 'smart city' is an urban region that is highly advanced in terms of overall infrastructure, sustainable real estate, communications and market viability. It is a city where information technology is the principal infrastructure and the basis for providing essential services to residents. There are many technological platforms involved, but not limited to automated sensor networks and data centres. Smart Cities focus on their most pressing needs and on the greatest opportunities to improve lives. They tap a range of approaches - digital and information technologies, urban planning best practices, public-private partnerships, and policy change - to make a difference. They always put people first. In the approach to the Smart Cities Mission, the objective is to promote cities that provide core infrastructure and give a decent quality of life to its citizens, a clean and sustainable environment and application of 'Smart' Solutions. The focus is on sustainable and inclusive development and the idea is to look at compact areas, create a replicable model which will act like a light house to other aspiring cities. The Smart Cities Mission is meant to set examples that can be replicated both within and outside the Smart City, catalyzing the creation of similar Smart Cities in various regions and parts of the country.

India on the threshold of a digital era
Digital drive is felt on the pulse of the country

The proliferation of digital technologies over the past two decades has been substantial, marking one of history’s most rapid rates of adoption of new technologies. The number of personal computers (PCs) in use worldwide surged from 100 million in 1990 to 1.4 billion by 2010. There were 10 million mobile phone users in the world in 1990; today there are more than 5 billion. The number of Internet users grew at an even more rapid rate over the same decades, from 3 million to 2 billion. To put that into context, only two decades ago there were as many Internet users in the world as people in the city of Madrid; today, there are as many people online as are living in all of Asia Rapid advancements in digital technology are redefining society. The plummeting cost of advanced technologies (a top-of-the-range smartphone in 2007 cost $499; a model with similar specifications cost $10 in 2015) is revolutionising business and society. In addition, the 'combinatorial effects' of these technologies - mobile, cloud, artificial intelligence, sensors and analytics, etc. - are accelerating progress exponentially. This revolution could significantly improve the quality of life of billions around the world, and technology is the multiplier. Read More..

‘Ache Din’ for Indian space industry
Improved satellite technology for aiding digital India

Two years of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has seen some ‘ache din’ (good days) and a ‘naya savera’ (new dawn) for the Indian space industry. Since Modi took over, India’s spaceship reached planet Mars, the successful launch of India’s mini space shuttle India was spectacular, ISRO kick-started the classic swadeshi satellite based navigation system. The backbone of the government's Digital India programme is providing high-speed broadband connectivity for all, and in order to achieve this aim, it must look at several technologies including satellite communications, which can speed up access in rural and hard-to-reach terrain, said TV Ramachandran, president of Broadband India Forum. Given the right policy framework, all the 2.5-lakh gram panchayats, envisaged to be connected under the BharatNet programme, can be connected to internet through satellite in just 12-18 months, the Forum has said. "Satellite communication is readily available in India, and about 10 gigabyte capacity is already available all over India. It is a myth that there is shortage. There is a lot of capacity available, and much more can be quickly brought into play," Ramachandran told. Broadband India Forum Chairman and former telecom secretary MF Farooqui said broadband in India will have to be delivered not by one technology but through a mix of technologies. “Satellite Communication is one of the more important means of achieving broadband to the rural and remote areas and for fulfilling the goals of Government’s Digital India initiative,” he said. The rollout of high-speed broadband, especially in rural areas, is largely dependent on Bharat Net, but given practical issues, it is moving at a slow pace. In this context, technologies such as satellite communication can complement traditional fibre technology. Read More..

The Digital India’s Smart Initiatives
India getting smarter from smart

The Digital India mission, launched on 1 July 2015, was envisioned with the aim to digitally-empower the people of the country. The mission, flagged off by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, aims to bridge the digital gap and attract foreign investments in India. It ensures that all citizens will have electronic access to government services. The mission also seeks to provide high speed internet services to the citizens. It also has business-related services like ease of doing business. Providing free Wi-Fi in trains and at railway stations also comes within the purview of Digital India. The initiative, which lays emphasis on e-governance, has a projected budget of Rs 1, 13,000 crore - an amount that will be implemented to prepare the country for knowledge-based transformation.

5G revenue will soar high
The future of telecom lies within it

5G, the upcoming technology of mobile generation has already started to show its impact worldwide. Though it has not become reality yet, but the telecom operators around the world are eagerly waiting for this fifth generation of mobile technology. Mobile broadband operators will generate revenues of $247 billion in 2025 from 5G services, said ABI Research. 5G mobile subscriptions will reach 150 million by 2021. South Korea, Japan, China and the US are predicted to lead with the first, and fastest, 5G subscription uptake, according to Ericsson Mobility Report released in February 2016. North America, Asia Pacific, and Western Europe will be the top 5G markets globally. ABI Research said telecom network operators, telecom equipment vendors, and standards bodies will finalize technical details concerning the millimeter wave by 2020, with rollout ramping up afterward. Rima Qureshi, chief strategy officer at Ericsson, said recently: “5G is about more than faster mobile services – it will enable new use cases related to the Internet of Things.” Verizon Wireless (North America), NTT Docomo (Japan), KT (Korea), and SK Telecom (Korea) formed the 5G Open Trial Specification Alliance. Verizon Wireless’s acquisition of XO Communications’ fiber network business brings strategic access to licensed millimeter wave spectrum with which to deploy 5G. Recently, Bharti Airtel (India) and China Mobile (China) announced their intention to start investing in 5G trials. Telecoms in both China and India are currently investing in TD-LTE networks in a big way. 5G will be a fast-growing cellular technology, most probably faster than 4G, according to ABI Research. LTE connections reached 1.1 billion worldwide in 2015 according to telecom analyst firm Ovum. North America had 237 million LTE connections of the 1.1 billion as of Q4 2015. Joe Hoffman, managing director at ABI Research, said: “The technology migration over the next few years will mean the continued decline of 2G, 3G, and 4G will grow in many markets but 5G will generate new use cases and market revenues.” Unlike the case with LTE, 5G stakeholders are trying hard to achieve spectrum harmonization. As with LTE, however, 5G will also include unlicensed and shared spectrum schemes. Government organizations worldwide will need to work together to regulate the 5G spectrum and set the new standard, said ABI Research. ABI Research forecasts that 8.5 million small cells will be deployed by 2020, setting in place the infrastructure for a rapid 5G millimeter wave rollout. In-band backhaul is a new tool to solve connectivity issues. Challenges for 5G The 5G market faces several key challenges for telecom infrastructure vendors and mobile operators. Spectrum fragmentation, standards development, coverage range, availability of mobile devices, and Capex / Opex will be the main obstacles. The development of use cases that ensure profitable outcomes from the competitive advantages of 5G will be the most important challenges for telecom infrastructure vendors and mobile operators. Comparing spectrum to oil in terms of importance to the future of wireless connectivity, Ericsson EVP and CTO Ulf Ewaldsson said that because spectrum is in such limited supply, vendors like Ericsson and others need to turn their focus to technologies like massive MIMO and beamforming that promise to make better use of existing spectrum.
