#1
Zylog Systems India Limited (ZSIL), a subsidiary of global software solutions and services provider Zylog Systems Limited, has chosen Aptilo Networks to provide the back-end systems enabling its Wi5 wireless broadband offering throughout India.

Zylog's Wi5 service is now live in a part of Chennai, which will soon become the first wi-fi enabled city in India. Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai and Hyderabad will be added in the next year, covering approximately 1,600 km and hundreds of thousands of users.

ZSIL has obtained a category 'A' Internet service provider license to operate in all of India's DoT circles, and is planning to cover 40 cities with a footprint of more than 12,000 km and millions of subscribers within the next five years.

Working with Aptilo's service management platform, the Wi5 service will enable customers to access high-speed wireless broadband easily through their laptops, desktops or mobile devices by subscribing to the Wi5 service on the move

"Wi-fi is well-suited to becoming a strong product differentiator for the millions of handhelds, mobile Internet devices, gaming consoles as well as laptops and PCs that are being sold every month. We are delighted to have a first-mover advantage in the wi-fi space through the launch of Zylog s Wi5," said Janakiraman R, chief operating officer & director, Zylog Systems India.

Aptilo has brought in partners Informatics International Limited (AvaBill) for delivering systems for operational support as well as pre-paid/post-paid billing, and Nexge for delivering VoIP services.

Broadband Internet penetration in India, the second most populous country in the world, is very low at 0.5%, with 6 million broadband subscribers in the beginning of 2009. With its Wi5 wireless broadband service, ZSIL aims to empower the vast segment of population that does not have access to broadband with convenient, high-speed and affordable broadband Internet.
