I asked ChatGPT to Summarize the content of the above mentioned Post, but it failed as it gave the following summaries I ran each time.

This article discusses the different types of digital signatures available in India. It explains the various benefits and drawbacks associated with each type, as well as the legal implications of using them. It also provides an overview of the processes involved in applying for and using a digital signature.

This article is about the potential of using digital surveillance for law enforcement in India. It discusses the challenges that need to be addressed in order to effectively use digital surveillance as a tool for law enforcement, such as the need for proper infrastructure and legal frameworks, as well as the potential for abuse of the technology. It also looks at the potential benefits of using digital surveillance for law enforcement, such as helping to better track criminals and increasing public safety.

5G / Wi-Fi / Jio FTTH Router Auto Update of Firmware
« Last post by wiredlife on June 28, 2022, 10:06:24 AM »
Sometimes, Jio does Firmware Update on the FTTH Router resulting in WiFi connections not working. What the update does is changes the SSID and hence the problem.

How to Change SSID of Jio FTTH Wifi Router ?
On your mobile, turn on "Mobile Data Internet".
From your MyJio App, Access the Settings and Change the SSID as well as Password.
Since, your FTTH is ied to the App, any changes in the MyJio App will get reflected to Jio Servers in Mumbai which in almost real time pushes to the FTTH Device (Router).

Now after 5 Minutes, when you turn on "WiFi" on your Laptop / Mobile, you should be able to see the new SSID. Choose to connect, enter the Password and you are all up and running.

Update the new Password in your WiFi Printer as well.
Web 2.0 / Migrating from Google WorkSpace / Suite Emails to ZohoMail
« Last post by wiredlife on June 28, 2022, 09:54:04 AM »
The following have to be adhered.

1. Verify Domain  + Change MX Records to Zoho
2. Go Back to Google Workspace - Change the Cloud Settings as given in their settings (Basically Permissions)
3. For Each Individual Inbox,
Enable IMAP +  Enable Access to Less Secure Apps
4. Crate User at Zoho
5. Create Migration, then Add User Created in Step 4 to the Migration then "Start Migration"

For a MailBox with Lot of Sent + Incoming e-mails + Mails in Various Labels - Migration is terribly slow. 1 Hour / 1 GB.
3G / HSPA / EVDO / Data Traffic Growing amidst Tariff Hikes
« Last post by wiredlife on June 01, 2022, 08:32:16 PM »
The healthy data traffic growth for the 3 telcos despite the tariff hikes suggests that down-trading to packs with lower data allowances was limited. The other common observation was the double-digit QoQ increase in S&D expenses as the industry has stepped up competitive intensity on channel payouts and customer acquisition. Capex remains elevated except for Vi that continues to grapple with a stretched balance sheet.

The near-term headwinds are: 1) a slowdown in smartphone uptake due to chip shortage and rising prices; and 2) higher diesel costs
(every 10% increase in diesel cost results in a 25-40bps mobile Ebitda margin hit). Another round of tariff hikes later this year could happen, providing a fillip.
Technology / KiranaTech - Startup Failures
« Last post by wiredlife on May 28, 2022, 08:03:18 AM »
Dukaan Tech, in its purest form, involves building tech for shops. Any shops. Whether it's a kirana or, say, a mid  sized supermarket chain. They thought it was a step towards a full-stack offering-bookkeeping, cash-flow management, inventory tracking, etc

Khatabook and OkCredit have raised $187 million and $85 million respectively.

OkCredit decided to shut down its digital storefront for kiranas.
Khatabook, which also shut a similar offering called MyStore in November 2021

The bookkeeping segment grew popular quickly-four-year-old Khatabook claims to have over 10 million monthly active users (MAU) as of January 2022, while six-year-old OkCredit reportedly had 5.5 million as of November 2021.

Digital storefronts are nice and shiny things for a kirana to have, but they're useless in the absence of robust inventory management systems. Cash flow is Supreme. A shopkeeper does everything to ensure that it's uninterrupted. They buy supplies according to how much money they have in hand; they get credit depending on the sales they're anticipating. If you ask him how much does he take home, he won't be able to tell.

In this backdrop, Shop Keepers won't payback OkCredit or KhataBook and thus both had to shut down this part of the business.

Technology / Route Acquisition of Masiv, Interteleco and SendClean
« Last post by wiredlife on October 19, 2021, 01:10:19 PM »
Akin to peers, Route Mobile's acquisition strategy is aimed at expanding beyond core Markets as well as augmenting the CPaaS capabilities. Recently announced acquisitions of Masiv (LATAM), Interteleco (Kuwait) and Send Clean (Email messaging) are all in-line with this strategy. Simultaneously, the company continues to consolidate its business in the core markets through a mix of farming and hunting new clients as adoption for digital communication continues to accelerate.

We note that Route saw a 47% YoY revenue growth in FY21 (versus 28% revenue CAGR between FY17-20). Similarly Route continues to broad base it’s business as is evident from the scale up evident from the client metrics over time.
FTTH Broadband / Jio - India's Number 1 All FTTH Wired Broadband ISP
« Last post by wiredlife on September 30, 2021, 11:43:30 AM »
Jio added 0.25 mn fixed broadband subscribers in the month of July 2021, continuing to gain momentum in the recent months. Airtel's subscriber additions also increased by 0.17 mn versus an average of 0.1 mn over the past four months.

Jio FTTH and Airtel now each have 3.5 mn wired broadband subscribers. Overall fixed Broadband subscriber base increased by 0.5 mn to 24 mn versus an addition of 0.8 mn in the previous month.

Jio is the only 100% FTTH ISP in India while BSNL, Airtel and others are a combination of age old DSL, Cable Broadband and little bit of FTTH.
5G / Wi-Fi / COAI - Thoughts on 5G in India
« Last post by wiredlife on September 29, 2021, 10:11:58 AM »
COAI has said that the recently announced reforms in the telecom sector, by the govt, go a long way in providing cashflow relief to the sector.

The reforms also provide the players with enough liquidity to be able to bid for the 5G spectrum auction. The govt wants its to be a success, and is willing to relook at the spectrum prices too, to make them affordable for the players.

The current eco system for 5G is well developed – but the use cases are very few. Hence 5G rollout will only be a gradual one, not a pan India in one go. TSPs will first look at urban pockets to roll out their 5G network, and then gradually move towards rural areas. Over this period, they will also have to decide whether to migrate the existing 2G/3G customer base directly to 5G, or stepwise first to 4G and then 5G.

Use of Open RAN technology and the PLI schemes by the govt should help bring the cost of 5G equipment down in the country, and lower the 5G capex requirement. In any case, 5G capex (excl spectrum purchase) is expected to be significantly lower than 4G rollout.
