  • Alphabet `X' sells new wireless internet technology to Andhra Pradesh

There is no need to lay optical fibre cables or string cables along poles for the goal.

FSOC implementation in Andhra Pradesh will address the challenges of river crossings, railway crossings connecting those areas where fiber can not reach.

X plans to deploy free space optical technology, which transmits data through light beams at up to 20 gigabits per second between the rooftop boxes.

Google X is planning to establish the Development Center in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh, which will be its first advancement centre outside the United State of America.

The agreement between the state government and X, formerly known as Google X, was signed during Information Technology Minister Nara Lokesh's visit to X office in Mountain View, California.

The tech uses light beams to deliver high-speed, high-capacity internet connectivity over long distances.

For Indians to use Google's services, however, they need access to the internet. "Today AP State FiberNet announced that they'll be rolling out two thousand FSOC links created by our team at X". Alphabet's X will also set up a local office with the help of the Government of Andhra Pradesh in order to provide real time support for smooth operation of the project, the government said in a statement.

A high level delegation from the Government of Andhra Pradesh led by Honorable Minister of IT & Panchayat Raj and Rural Development, Mr. Nara Lokesh including A. Babu, MD of APSFL (Andhra Pradesh State FiberNet Limited); Raju Indukuri, Chairman of GTEN, AP Economic Development Board and Hari Prasad Vemuru, Technology Advisor to Government of Andhra Pradesh were present at the event. If the implementation of this project in the state of Andhra Pradesh is successful, FSOC can be taken forward to provide network connection to the remotest reaches of the world.

Google's innovations lab, Alphabet X, is switching to a new approach to bring the Internet to people in developing countries.

Currently, only 20 percent of residents in Andhra Pradesh have access to Internet. The state wants to help 12 million households and thousands of government organizations and businesses get broadband by 2019.
