1 (Satellite, fiber and Wireless) INDIA – AFRICA UNION ICT Initiative
Pan African e-Network (Satellite, fiber and Wireless) INDIA – AFRICA UNION ICT Initiative By V. PONRAJ Director (Technology Interface) President’s Office Rashtrapati Bhavan NewDelhi –

“…In honour of Indo-Pan African partnership our Government has decided to provide seamless and integrated satellite, fiber-optic and wireless network connecting 53 African countries for Tele- education, Tele-medicine and e-services. This will connect 5 Universities, 53 Learning centres, 10 Super specialty hospitals and 53 Patient-end locations in rural areas… Pan-African Parliament can form task teams for the speedy and smooth implementation of the program. We can jointly work together…” His Excellency Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam The President of India During the inaugural session of the Second PAN-African Parliament session of AU on 16 Sept 2004

53 PAN-African countries are to be connected through Satellite, Fiber optics links. The network will primarily provide tele-education, tele-medicine Internet, videoconferencing and VOIP services and Supports e-governance, e-commerce, infotainment, resource mapping and meteorological services Connectivity. Heads of States Connectivity - Internet, VOIP and videoconferencing. $50 Million budget for its installation, initial operation and maintenance for 3 years.

4 PAN-AFRICAN NETWORK – Overall Architecture
VSAT Network 53 Heads of States Network Voice Over IP Video Conference Internet HUB Tele-Education 53 Learning Centers 5 Universities (3+2) Tele-Medicine 53 Remote Hospitals 10 SSHs (7+3) Common Outbound 1 mbps (Broadcast) ( ) kbps (Return bandwidth)

It is proposed that out of 53 telemedicine terminals, 43 are fixed terminals installed in Remote Hospital and 10 are mobile terminals installed in mobile vans. 10 Super Specialty Hospitals will have the capability to provide the Continuing Medical Education (CME). 5 Tele-education studio’s with post production setup, Non-linear editing facility at each of the universities and the appropriate Data centers. The network is designed to have 169 terminals and a central hub to deliver the services mentioned above. Use of INTELSAT/Other till INSAT capacity is available through RASCOM The Pan-African Hub will be linked with Indian Universities and Super Speciality Hospitals through Under-Sea Cable (Fiber Optics). The probable countries that have technical merits for establishing VSAT hub are Ethiopia, Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa and Botswana. Will be operational by 3rd Quarter of 2006
