Google Alphabet Internet: Google’s Alphabet Internet X research division recently announced that the Andhra Pradesh state government would likely to buy its newly developed Internet technology. Without laying cable the technology is capable of providing high-speed wireless Internet to millions of people. To help roll out the technology X plans to have a small team based in Andhra Pradesh next year. For implementing this, Google X will set up its development centre in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh; it will be its first development centre outside the US.
Google Alphabet Internet agreement has beamed cell phone service many times to Earth from a network of large balloons. The balloons link to smart phones directly but are meant for rural areas with a low population density only. Even though the terms of the deal were not disclosed, the agreement, which comes into force next year, would see 2,000 boxes installed as far as 20 kilometres. It is apart on posts and roofs to bring fast Internet connection to populated areas. The new thought is to create a new backbone which is helpful to supply service to cell phone towers and Wi-Fi hotspots, endpoints that users would then access.
Accordingly X plans to deploy free space optical technology. Technology transmits data through light beams at up to 20 gigabits per second between the rooftop boxes. To connect to the Internet simultaneously through the same cell phone tower there would be enough bandwidth for thousands of users as per X.
Google Alphabet Internet in India and Its India Plans:
Andhra Pradesh, a state with 53 Mn people, had nearly 15 Mn high-speed Internet subscribers as of last December according to a report by India’s telecom regulator. Alphabet stated that by 2019 the state wants to connect an additional 12 Mn households. However while researchers believe that the technology is promising in areas where linking cell phone towers to a wired connection is expensive and it is difficult, because of poor weather or misalignment between the boxes can weaken the connection it has taken off.
First time in India:
The project is with tech giant’s increasing focus on India in line. Google again rolled out a slew of products to see the world’s second-largest Internet economy this month at the third edition of Google for India held in Delhi. The company released a couple of more India centric products such as
- Android Oreo – a new smart phone experience for entry-level devices,
- Google Go-a new search app
- New “two-wheeler mode” in Google Maps for India.
With an aim to support entrepreneurs and developers of the country the US-headquartered technology company announced its ‘Solve for India’ programme in April this year.
Last year also, it was inspired by the success of the partnership with RailTel and Indian Railways to provide Wi-Fi at railway stations in India. A new Wi-Fi platform called Google Station had been announced. This new platform will work with partners to roll out Wi-Fi hotspots. So that it can provide an easy way to set up high quality, user-friendly Wi-Fi.
