Railtel Provides WiFi & BlueFi Services At Bangalore Railway Station

TELiBrahma has collaborated with RailTel Corporation Of India to launch BluFi in the Bangalore railway station. BluFi is a distributed form of WiFi which allows TeliBrahma to make bluetooth based services available across the station. They’re providing Railway Information, as well as videos, downloadable games, wallpapers etc, via Bluetooth. In addition, according to a note form TeliBrahma, RailTel has also provided free WiFi connectivity in the Bangalore railway station under their RailWire Retail Broadband initiative. Users have to send their mobile numbers requesting internet access following which the password will be sent to them via SMS.

Nikhil adds: The press release states that RailWire is in its pilot phase at the moment and focuses on pure play broadband and VPN services, but frankly, we’ve been hearing about this “pilot project” for almost five years now: back in 2006, RailTel had announced plans for WiFi in Bangalore and Jaipur stations. Has anyone reading this used WiFi at either of these stations?

RailTel also offers others services which includes carrier services and enterprise services. Under carrier services, it offers managed lease line, which is currently available in the south-western and eastern part of India but will be expanded to north India as well. The network supports internet speeds ranging from 2mbps, 10mbps, 100mbps and 1gbps. Additionally, it also helps in providing co-location for equipment of telecom operators at its Point of Presence (POP) located at railway stations and allows triple play of voice, data and video through its next generation switching network. As for enterprise services, it offers virtual private network services for offices and business in addition to internet access.

Last year, TELiBrahma had  raised $5 million from Intel Capital, Inventus Capital Partners, and Ojas Venture Partners. Besides BluFi, TELiBrahma owns an augmented reality app called ‘intARact‘; ‘GenieTik’, a m-commerce platform; ‘MobiLogiX’, a hosting platform and ‘EReach’, a suite of components and applications that provide infrastructure for transaction oriented and collaborative multimodal applications.

Earlier, Indian Railways had launched virtual tickets with the Virtual Reservation Message (VRM), making physical tickets non mandatory to travel in Indian Railways.
