Education, health and entertainment will be the primary verticals in the Content Delivery Network (CDN).


Current Digital Scenario

Digital infrastructure and services are increasingly emerging as key enablers and critical determinants of a country’s growth and well-being. With significant capabilities in both telecommunications and software, India, more than most countries, stands poised to benefit from harnessing new digital technologies and platforms to unlock productivity, as well as to reach unserved and underserved markets; thus catalyzing economic growth and development, generating new- age jobs and livelihoods, and ensuring access to next generation services for its citizens.
India's telecommunication network is the second largest in the world on the basis of its customer base and it has one of the lowest tariffs in the world enabled by the hyper-competition in its market. The telecommunication sector is contributing 6.50% in India’s GDP. Major sectors of the Indian telecommunication industry are telephony, Internet and broadcasting.
Utility of RailWire Broadband

Broadband is one of the most promising and capable sector of Indian Telecom market for the growth of India’s economy and fulfilling the vision of Digital India. The major objective of Digital India is to “Connect the Unconnected” i.e. to connect all the Rural and Remote areas of India digitally.  As per the latest “The National Digital Communication Policy 2018”, the main objective of this policy is “Broadband for All” by 2022. As per the latest TRAI report, the total broadband subscribers in India are 540.04 million (521.77 million Wireless and 18.27 million Wireline).
RailWire leverages RailTel’s OFC infrastructure of over 45000Kms along railway route and all India presence to provide value-added services in all sectors like retail sector, education sector, health & spiritual lifestyle. RailWire focuses on pure-play broadband and VPN services and offers content & applications-driven network, flexibility & affordable pricing, all in one.
RailWire has become a hub of local information and a platform for rendering communication, infotainment, education, health and community services to the masses. RailWire is not all about managing the end-broadband-customers through own infrastructure or shared infrastructure/last mile access like fibre to the building (FTTB), fibre to the Home (FTTH) or similar technology but to contribute in Digital India for the socio-economic upliftment of the society.


RailWire Presence

  2. RailWire is also promoting the startups by giving the opportunities to become the partner of RailWire as Managed Service Providers and also offering them “Startup Compensation” as an additional motivation factor.
  3. As a next step towards promoting Digital India and Skill India, RailWire is also motivating the unemployed youth to become as a “Digital Entrepreneur” by partnering with RailWire as “Access Network Provider”.
  4. “Broadband for All” is a new dream for emerging India and RailWire is also the key contributor of fulfilling this dream by connectivity remote and rural areas of India.
  
RailWire’s Vision- RailWire Saathi.

In the recent past RailTel has planned to launch a RailWire Saathi program,
The Railwire Saathi aims to provide connectivity to the unconnected and at the same time offer jobs opportunities in rural areas.

Aiming to provide connectivity in remote areas, RailTel will set up Wi-Fi hotspot kiosks at about 500 stations and help people access an array of online services, including various government schemes.
Christened as Railwire Saathi, the Wi-Fi kiosks will function like a PCO for Digital India and enable people to use services like e-commerce, online banking, offer them access to open school/university and insurance schemes, e-ticketing for train and bus services among others.
Automated form filling, mobile and DTH recharges are other services which the Railwire Saathi is expected to provide in areas with limited connectivity.
While RailTel has equipped about 1600 stations with free Wi-Fi service, RailWire Saathi scheme has dual aim- providing connectivity as well as jobs.

Conclusion

A digitally connected India can help in improving social and economic condition of people through development of non-agricultural economic activities apart from providing access to education, health and financial services. However, it is important to note that Broadband alone cannot directly lead to overall development of the nation. The overall growth and development can be realized through supporting and enhancing elements such as literacy, basic infrastructure, overall business environment, regulatory environment, etc. and RailWire is a way to achieve India’s digital goals.
