From converged TV services to smart Wi-Fi, the list goes on at Convergence India 2016 expo, where innovation could be seen in its various forms.
With 434 exhibitors from 29 countries, this time the expo serves a gamut of innovative offerings around IPTV, Broadband, optical fiber among others. Facilitating the Prime Minister’s vision of transforming India into a digitally empowered economy, the 24th edition of South Asia’s largest ICT, Broadcast and Digital Media expo was inaugurated today in New Delhi.
Lukup Media, a Bengaluru-based start-up, showcased first-of-its-kind portable set-top boxes. It demonstrated that how linear, non-linear TV and broadband services could be converged through one single device. Non-linear TV gives one the opportunity to go back and watch any content that was scheduled on a channel a week back. The company has committed about Rs 100 crore for manufacturing the products in India and the range of devices are now available in four cities, including Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Pune.
Government-owned Centre for Development of Telematics (C-DoT) has chalked out a way through which optical fiber can reach one’s desk instead of being confined to outside only.
The solution—Fiber to the Desk– is the extension of the GPoN technology and it has been designed on ONT (optical network terminal) which can be fixed anywhere on the desk.
At the desk, one can get 1 Gigabyte of data and can connect with the router or internet, among others. Targeting the business houses, it showcased another product, Divya Damani, which is a combination of WDM and GPON technologies.

Besides, it has USB 2.0 port for 4G/3G dongle and mass storage. Its wireless range booster provides 300Mbps wireless repeater, extending wireless range using universal repeater.
Among its Analog DVR, it provides 16 channel D1 digital video recorder. The company claims that it has got most efficient video compression support.
China-based IP-Com, which is into networking business since 2007, now plans to make a mark for itself in India with its ‘Smart Wi-Fi’ concept and promises to give solutions at cheaper rates than majors like Cisco or Ericsson.
A company official said that it targets the SMB sector in India and looking for providing Wi-Fi solutions in various schools, colleges and hospitals.
Targeting the call centers, Xtend Technologies has devices which can effectively manage the telecommunication investment by reviewing the billed reports generated from the Xtend call Billing System.
