SoftSwitch

Softswitch is a ubiquitous term that is used in the VoIP world to represent the switching point for VoIP calls. Usually the Softswitch does not handle the media; the Media Gateways in turn handle the Media Conversion from IP to any Circuit Switched Networks like PSTN, PLMN (GSM/CDMA), etc. Before we get on to the deployment scenarios of Softswitches, we can have a very brief look at the Protocols involved the VoIP framework. There are two types of protocols that are involved in VoIP. H.323 and SIP are peer-to-peer protocols, while MGCP and MEGACO are master-slave protocols. Other than these, there is a SIGTRAN protocol suite for taking SS7 signaling over IP. H.323 is an umbrella recommendation from ITU-T for multimedia communication over packet networks.

802.11 Wireless access

The project aims at developing 802.11b/g based mesh network for rural communities. This design emphasizes the development of stand-alone 802.11b/g Multiport Wireless Access System (MWAS) and planning of an effective mesh network using theses cards. Each of the above mentioned router cards have three 802.11b/g based Wireless standalonecards and an Ethernet port for linking backhaul. The directional antennas connected to the wireless cards facilitate long links of the order of a few Kilometers while the Ethernet provides the link to the Fibre backbone.

Applications

Rural ATM

The Gramateller is an ATM designed to enable a low-cost model of delivering banking services in rural areas. While conventional ATMs are meant to be a value-added service provided by a bank, the Gramateller is designed to be a virtual bank in areas where a bank has no other presence. This opens up large vistas for a bank to expand its operations profitably.

Medical diagnostic kit

TeNeT Group and Neurosynaptic have developed an affordable telemedicine solution, which includes a Remote Diagnostic Kit developed by Neurosynaptic. The kit can be installed at villages and other remote locations, which have Internet connectivity. The doctor, who is present in a different location (maybe in a city), and the patient at the remote location, are connected to each other over a video conferencing link.

Indic computing

Although India's average literacy level is about 65%, less than 5% of India's population can use English for communication. And even though the world wide web and computer communication has given us access to information at the click of a mouse, 95% of our population is excluded from this revolution due to dominance of English.
