India will be the first country in the world to get access to Google Station Wi-Fi hotspots, an initiative to offer high-speed internet connectivity in public places. While India is the fortunate country to get the station, the fortunate city will be Pune. Google Station is a joint venture of IBM, Larsen and Toubro and RailTel.
It’s a Rs 150 crore venture that is won by these organizations as a major aspect of Pune’s Smart City activity, reports The Economic Times. Unlike Google’s prior Railwire project with RailTel Google Station aims to give reliable fast access to the internet in broad daylight ranges and apparently monetise the entire framework.
Likewise Railwire, Google will principally offer the platform required to incorporate Wi-Fi access over a large number of areas with a single sign-on process. Individuals will just need to confirm by means of OTP. L&T is supposedly the ‘master framework integrator’ for the venture and will give a significant part of the infrastructure required.
Open call boxes, PA frameworks, ecological sensors and more will be incorporated into the framework. ET reports that Google is working with the Pune government for the organization of variable informing shows too. IBM will be backing the Pune’s Smart City Network, the report includes.
