Nokia, IIT-M tie up for rural India

The Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT-M), has tied up with Nokia for three years to create technology solutions which, in turn, will help enhance broadband connectivity in rural India.

“Under the three-year partnership, Nokia will fund and provide technological expertise for research at IIT-M’s Centre of Excellence for Wireless Technology (CEWiT). The project will evaluate the option of using unlicensed spectrum to deliver cost-efficient, last-mile broadband connectivity to remote rural communities in India, complementing the government’s National Optical Fibre Network (NOFN) initiative,”a press release said.
