      Wireless Technology Summit – Dharamsala 2006
      The Tibetan Technology Center (TibTec) will host the AirJaldi Summit
      on wireless technologies in Dharamsala, India in October 2006. TibTec
      has partnered with the Djursland International Institute of Rural
      Wireless Broadband (DIIRWB) and will join the World Summits on Free
      Information Infrastructure (WSFII) to deliver a conference and
      extended wireless training workshops in October. The conference will
      be held from October 22nd through 25th in Dharamsala, India. The
      training workshops will span a ten period directly after the
      conference. The theme of the summit is “Empowering Communities
      Through Wireless Networks”.
      The Air Jaldi Summit will attract wireless technology experts and
      community activists from India, Europe, North America, Israel, and
      Australia. A list of confirmed presenters can be found on the
      AirJaldi Web site under the “Program” link. The organizers are also
      pleased to announce confirmation of three distinguished keynote
      speakers: Dr. Roger Downer (Ireland), President Emeritus of the
      University of Limerick; Mr. David Hughes (USA), longtime champion of
      wireless technologies; and, Mr. Vic Hayes (Netherlands), the “father”
      of WiFi.
      The Air Jaldi Summit comes in direct response to international
      interest in the Dharamsala Community Wireless Mesh Network. It was
      developed in cooperation with the Dharamsala Information Technology
      Group, an organization chaired by the Tibetan Computer Resource
      Center and some of the region’s leading information technology
      professionals. The Mesh backbone includes over 30 nodes , all sharing
      a single radio channel. Broadband Internet services are provided to
      all mesh members. The total upstream Internet bandwidth available is
      6Mbps. There are over 2000 computers connected to the Mesh, and about
      500 have Internet access.
