TRAI issues a draft design for the public Wi-Fi network system

July 13, 2017

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has issued a draft design for the public Wi-Fi network system to be set-up under its public Wi-Fi pilot project.

As per the draft design, any entity with a valid pan number would be able to set-up public data offices (PDOs) for providing public Wi-Fi hotspots under the proposed system. Further, the document intends to provide detailed technology specifications for various service providers to ensure interoperability within the Wi-Fi system. According to TRAI, all service providers must ensure compliance with these specifications to be a part of this initiative. However, the technical document does not fully cover detailed policy aspects and enabling framework for providing public Wi-Fi services, TRAI said.

Meanwhile, TRAI has requested all entities willing to be a part of TRAI’s public Wi-Fi project to submit their proposals by July 25, 2017.
