The GigaMesh system, which enables 4G and 5G connectivity, has been successfully deployed for the first time by Bengaluru-based startup Astrome Technologies in rural Karnataka.

Story so far: High-speed wireless data transmission is possible with GigaMesh, a transceiver (transmitter and receiver). The start-up, which was based at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bengaluru, used GigaMesh to connect a school in the Nidavanda village of the Bangalore Rural region to the internet.

  • One device was connected to the BharathNet internet facility at Sompura Gram Panchayat and another at the Government Primary School in Nidavanda.
  • These gadgets make sure that wireless internet connectivity is offered at a lower cost.

Recognition: Through the transmission, teachers from the Bengaluru-based NGO eVidyaloka were able to teach government school children online. The Department of Telecom (DoT), Ministry of Communications awarded the project.
