DST-Lockheed Martin India Innovation Growth Programme 2016, Innovator’s competition.
Watchy SpeedLink in focus
Watchy Technology is a Technology startup that created SpeedLink which provides a reliable high speed mobile Internet connection to businesses without using expensive leased lines or satellite based systems.
Sriram talks about the technology –
We have built a new technology that can give near satellite or leased line reliability and quality of bandwidth by merging multiple cellular networks together. We can merge up 2G, 3G, 4G networks, from various vendors in one single device and that is the wifi router we have built. So, we are providing high speed mobile Internet to businesses.
This portable wifi router combines upto 8 different cellular networks 2G, 3G, or 4G from any vendor like Airtel, Vodafone, Idea, Tata Photon, Reliance and others. This router provides the aggregation of all the bandwidth capacities as one superfast Internet connection. SpeedLink is very cost effective.
Sriram talks about benefits to customers –
#1 Benefit is the customer goes for most cost effective solution instead of importing other equipment
#2 Customer can take the product to an urban area and gets the aggregated bandwidth and can also take it to remote areas where just GPRS (or 2G) is available and it works there too,
#3 is that being an Indian company, Indian customers can direct support from us.
Multiple patents have been filed on this technology.
