India’s Leading Service Provider Continues to Innovate By Building Disaggregated, Open-Source Networks

DELHI, India, January 31, 2022—Spectra, India’s leading managed service provider, today announced  that it has expanded the commercial deployment of Telecom Infra Project (TIP) OpenWiFi solutions. TIP OpenWiFi will enable high-performance broadband services for Spectra’s Multi-Dwelling Unit (MDU) and Enterprise customers.

Spectra is changing the managed service landscape in India, providing end-to-end network solutions that revolutionize the customer experience. Spectra is committed to driving the Indian government’s goal of making India one of the top ten countries in the world for broadband access.

By building networks with TIP OpenWiFi solutions, Spectra customers will be offered higher bandwidth, better quality of service, and competitive prices, thereby changing how broadband is consumed in India. Spectra installed Access Points (APs) and a Cloud Controller from Inventum, a New Delhi-based technology company.

“Spectra’s mission is ‘to make life better’ and by building Spectra’s Wi-Fi networks with TIP OpenWiFi hardware and software, we are making life better for our customers,” said Udit Mehrotra, CEO and Managing Director, Spectra. “At Spectra, we believe in using the latest technological advancements, and this demonstrates to our customers why Spectra is the leading choice for internet and other managed  services in India.”

“Spectra’s choice of using TIP OpenWiFi is a proofpoint to the industry that standards-based Wi-Fi software, cloud controllers, and access points (APs), offer a great customer experience and industry-leading innovation,” said Sandeep Kohli, Connectivity Technologies and Ecosystems Manager, India Market, Meta. “The Wi-Fi industry is ripe for disruption and partners like Spectra prove that they can ‘make life better’ for the industry and end-users with an open-source solution.”

“Our mission is to build the best cloud-enabled networking products for Indian businesses, said Sachin Mehra, Founder and Managing Director, Inventum. “TIP OpenWiFi will enable our customers to deploy the best wireless technology in the market and ensure a great experience for their end users.”

TIP OpenWiFi is an open source-based Wi-Fi architecture that enables multi-vendor, interoperable Wi-Fi networks. The TIP OpenWiFi-based solution enables Spectra to seamlessly mix and match access points and controllers from any TIP OpenWiFi compliant manufacturer, enabling it to easily expand its Wi-Fi footprint. It also allows developers to quickly create new applications given it is open source.

There are more than 300 companies involved with the TIP OpenWiFi initiative from OEMs, ODMs and Silicon Providers to Carriers and Service Providers to App Developers. Boingo Wireless recently announced its first wide commercial deployment of TIP OpenWiFi 6E solutions in the United States, and Virgin Media and the City of Dublin announced a field trial of a WiFi4EU-Compliant Network in the EU.

About Telecom Infra Project

Telecom Infra Project (TIP) is a global community of companies and organizations that are driving infrastructure solutions to advance global connectivity. Half of the world’s population is still not connected to the internet, and for those who are, connectivity is often insufficient. This limits access to the multitude of consumer and commercial benefits provided by the internet, thereby impacting GDP growth globally. However, a lack of flexibility in the current solutions – exacerbated by a limited choice in technology providers – makes it challenging for operators to efficiently build and upgrade networks. Founded in 2016, TIP is a community of diverse members that includes hundreds of companies — from service providers and technology partners, to systems integrators and other connectivity stakeholders. We are working together to develop, test and deploy open, disaggregated, and standards-based solutions that deliver the high quality connectivity that the world needs — now and in the decades to come.
