C-DoT Redefines Its RoadMap

The Center of Development of Telematics (C-DOT) redefined its roadmap on its twenty-fifth anniversary yesterday. The organization has realigned its efforts, and defined its roadmap with a focus in the four major directions, keeping in view the relevance and need in the present scenario. The major developmental schemes in these directions are projects of national and strategic importance for rural areas through shared GSM Radio Access Network.

The organization is focusing on projects for software intensive, telecom solutions in the form of NMS, which provide a common umbrella of management of a network equipped with products from diverse vendors. C-DOT is also undertaking futuristic study projects like ‘One Number’, which will aim to utilize a unique number like social security number for a mobile personal number, cognitics radio and advanced optical network technology.

The organization plans to focus on a new project on central monitoring system, which will be deployed across the networks. “While this will protect the privacy of citizens, it will help in the interception of calls made by potential threats to the country. It is different from normal phone tapping. The system will involve integration with a wide range of stakeholders,” said PV Acharya, executive director, C-DOT. The organization has been chosen as a nodal agency for the implementation of central monitoring system.

Highlighting the challenges being faced by the organization, Acharya said, “We have very good infrastructure and our manpower is highly qualified. So, after working for three-four years, our engineers leave. The attrition rate is very high. Besides, I think we have to work on finding our niche area, since the market is extremely competitive now.”

C-DOT’s twenty-fifth anniversary celebration was attended by Gurudas Kamat, Minister of State for Communications & IT; Sam Pitroda, chairman of National Knowledge Commission; and Siddhartha Behura, secretary of Minister of Communications and IT.

“Telecom has created wealth for a handful of people. It is time to look at the bottom of the pyramid and prove to ourselves that we can do it. We have developed and delivered value to this segment especially in the arena of health, education and financial services,” said Sam Pitroda, chairman of National Knowledge Commission. He is known as the Father of Telecom Revolution in the country.
