Most of this focus is on rural India as that segment is largely under-served though 70% of our population lives in Rural India.
M2M has developed expertise in helping bridge the Digital Divide – We have pioneered the work of creating a highly scalable Wi-Fi hotspot based access network at Gram Panchayats that extends the reach of the prestigious BharatNet “Fiber to the Village” project. Our solution for the Wi-Fi Choupal program solves two key challenges of deploying and operating telecom networks in Rural India: –
- Lack of availability of reliable grid power supply to run the equipment
- Lack of availability of trained technical manpower
We have done this by leveraging Solar power and Pre-Configured Mesh Wi-Fi Access Points. This solution has created one of the largest Wi-Fi Hotspot Networks in the world with over 150,000 Gram Panchayats connected with around 200,000 Solar Powered Wi-Fi Hotspots
