Lisbon: Indian American inventor Arogyaswami Paulraj, known for his contribution to faster wireless connectivity popularly known as MIMO, the core technology used in all modern wireless networks, said ‘digital India’ can be a major driver of the country’s growth story, if executed in the right manner. He also said that ‘Make in India’ is “a good slogan” but “it is a long way from a good slogan to execution”. “Digitisation of the country at every level will help and particularly with Adhaar, we can do a lot more.
We really need to improve broadband access in India, which will be part of digital India campaign and the way to do it is through wireless and the way to wireless is largely through wi-fi as the access is cheaper,” Paulraj said. MIMO is a core technology used in all modern wireless networks. Without it, high-speed Internet connections embodied in 4G LTE cellular and the latest Wi-Fi networks would not be possible.
It will continue to be vital in the next generation of cellular networks, known as 5G. Paulraj said the JAM trilogy is all in the right direction but everything depends on execution. “We got to execute. While these are good goals, everything that the government wants to do, it got to execute too,” he said. PTI
