Mobile India 2017 (http://comsnets.org/mobile_india.html) is one of the first premier events and will be the curtain raiser for this year’s mobile disruptions in the country. It is associated with The Ninth International Conference on COMmunication Systems NETworkS (COMSNETS) (http://www.comsnets.org), the world’s premier international conference on networking and communications technology innovation.

Theme: Innovations & Disruptions through Mobile

Mobile broadband revolution has been jump started by the entry of new telecom operators, conclusion of one of the largest spectrum auctions, and the continued hyper growth in the mobile start-up space. Bengaluru continues to be in the top 20 in the Global Start-up Ecosystem Ranking, thanks to the continued disruption by the start-ups. The mobile broadband penetration continues to increase and is more than 125 million now with expected exponential adoption this year. Mobile Apps are being integrated into many traditional activities ranging from grocery shopping to calling a cab, a trend that is rapidly spilling revenue from almost every industry in the higher revenue traditional economy into the app economy. It is expected that the spill-overs are greater in emerging countries such as India where there are substantial inefficiencies in the traditional industries. At the same time, a set of government agencies, entrepreneurs, software and hardware companies have been working on India Stack – a set of APIs that allows governments, businesses, startups and developers to utilise an unique digital Infrastructure to solve India’s hard problems towards presence-less, paperless, and cashless service delivery. Projects such as electronic Know Your Customer (eKYC) process, and Unified Payment Interface (UPI) that enable digital money transfer are being rolled out using the India Stack framework and philosophy. Ambitious projects such as cashless society, and Smart Cities have been initiated by the Indian government. In this edition of Mobile India, we will explore the innovation and disruptions caused by the mobile ecosystem in areas ranging from mobile authentication and security, mobile data analytics and privacy, mobile payments.
