Optical Wireless Access Network for Rural and Urban Communication
ERNET India is currently executing a joint project with IIIT Delhi funded by MeitY on ‘Optical Wireless Access Network for rural and urban communications’ for the duration of 3 years (2019-22). Under this project, the objective is to provide optical wireless (OW) connectivity for rural and urban communication scenarios as follows, further it will be demonstrated in real-field use case scenarios like auditorium/ hospital environment.
- OW connectivity for Urban includes developing a Hybrid LiFi-WiFi testbed, AP selection and resource allocation algorithm and link aggregation experiments.
- OW connectivity for Rural includes designing a relay broadcast unit and rooftop receiver unit for end-to-end bidirectional last mile communication.
