Driving India’s Techade-D2M for Bharat – 5G Broadcast Summit will be organized by IIT Kanpur and Saankhya Labs on 16th January 2023 (Tuesday) at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi. The summit aims to deliberate on concrete actions in promoting Direct-to-Mobile (D2M) broadcasting as a major disruption in the mobile broadcasting space. This groundbreaking indigenous technology is aligned with the Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s vision of making ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’ and ‘Make in India’ successful in driving India’s Technology landscape.
The summit will feature prominent civil servants like Shri Amitabh Kant (IAS) – Sherpa G20 and former CEO, NITI Aayog, Shri Tarun Kapoor (IAS) – Advisor, PMO, Shri Apurva Chandra (IAS) – Secretary, Information & Broadcasting, GoI, Shri S. Krishnan, (IAS) – Secretary, Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, GoI, Shri Neeraj Mittal (IAS) – Secretary, Department of Telecommunications, GoI and Prof. Abhay Karandikar – Secretary, Department of Science and Technology, GoI. Apart from the civil servants, policy experts and industry representatives from the broadcasting and telecom sectors will also be present.
Delegates will have invaluable opportunity to gain firsthand insights from policy experts and civil servants on India’s technology landscape, on how D2M technology has emerged as a symbol of the power of Aatmanirbhar Bharat, learn about the opportunities and challenges of D2M, and other critical conversations in the Broadcasting and Telecommunication sector.
The summit presents an elaborate understanding of Direct-to-Mobile (D2M) broadcasting technology. Recognizing its potential to revolutionize mobile broadcasting, the summit emphasizes its seamless integration with broadband and 5G, offering a one-to-many content delivery system to over a billion mobile devices.
The D2M broadcasting technology developed by Saankhya Labs and IIT Kanpur leverages terrestrial telecommunications infrastructure and public broadcaster-assigned spectrum to transmit video, audio, and data signals directly to compatible mobile and smart devices. With the potential to reach over a billion mobile devices, the adoption of D2M technology promises transformative benefits. These include cost reductions in data transmission and access, improvements in network efficiency and resilience, and potentially leading to the establishment of a nationwide emergency alert system.
