Wireless for Communities (W4C) Programme: Connecting remotest communities of India through unlicensed wireless spectrum
DEF, a member of APC, implemented Wireless for Communities (W4C) to utilise unlicensed spectrum, providing internet connectivity in the remotest regions of India and empowering community members who have formerly been deprived of accessing information.
As part of the TRICALCAR project a set of seven new training modules, which the WILAC network is pleased to share with its African counterpart, has been made available. The modules range from WiMax to energy for telecommunications systems, visiting VoIP, long distance wireless links and community, gender and technology on the way. There are even sustainability strategies and network planning modules.
