Background
21st Century Knowledge Society is going to be driven
on the foundation of Information Infrastructure and
ICT tools
India is moving towards enablement with a great urge
by :
• Aligning with global and technologies developments
• Identifying and addressing domestic problem and needs

Knowledge Paradigm (Contd…)
• High Performance Computing (Petaflop by 2010 and
beyond)
•
Development, acquisition as well as creative use scaling up
momentum
• Petabytes of storages and beyond
•
From Remote Sensing Satellites, MST Radars & Global Scientific
mission forums demanding tremendous storage
• High speed Networks (Terabits per second by 2010 and

Knowledge Paradigm – Indian Context
Indian Economy is moving towards new era
•
Driven by the service sectors
•
Information/communication sector is leading the surge
•
Reforms in the telecom sector and well established IT industry
combined with
• Growing size of academia (increasing % of private) and one of
largest network of R & D labs
• Gives new opportunites and begs opportunities for next generation –
information infrastructure
•
Strengthening links among local, national, regional, internatonal
networks and applications
•
Education and Research lab linkages needs strengthening
