The Internet in 21st century has become the new necessity of life, as human life is now incomplete without it. Today businesses are dependent upon the internet as never before. There is not even a single aspect of human life that is not linked with the internet.
Internet was initially developed as a decentralized network but with its massive penetration, it’s no more a decentralized network rather it’s in hands of few big giants who are controlling the community of 3.9 billion users.
Ammbr is developed to challenge the legacy of centralized telecos, who work on the model to increase the revenue. Ammbr’s vision is to build the world’s largest fully decentralized, self-sustainable, wireless mesh telecommunications network using blockchain technology.
Every Ammbr node consists of a core router that is capable of communicating across a mixed spectrum of wireless – Wi Fi, LTE-U, Bluetooth, and IoT spectra. It’s the first of its kind.
Ammbr nodes are interconnected in a mesh network topology. Mesh becomes more robust as more devices join the network, eliminating single points of failure and decentralizing the network. Open source mesh routing protocol will be used to avoid getting locked in the hands of single vendor. Since there are many nodes connected, no single node can manipulate the whole network.
Here are few Advantages which Ammbr Mesh network offers
- Low cost internet access for all.
- Supports multiple protocols and spectrum bands.
- Superior distribution for last mile connectivity and increased coverage.
The community based internet project is not a dream, there are many such projects successfully running across the world, Guifi.net in Catalunya -Spain is one such example.
South Asia Deprived Internet Community and Ammbr
South Asia is one of the most densely populated region of the world, with a population exceeding 1.5 billion. Its terrain contains fertile lands, mountains, deserts, and rivers. The population is unevenly distributed due to this uneven terrain.
The pace with which internet is spreading in this region is very fast, but for many it is still slow or non-existent. Rough estimates show that by June 2017, the number of internet users in India will reach 450 million, while internet users in Pakistan are already around 50 million. Most of these internet users are from urban areas where broadband infrastructure is readily available. Despite this massive growth in urban cities, rural areas still remain deprived of internet facility as broadband companies are not willing to invest in rural areas, as ROI will be relatively low.
Ammbr mesh network can best serve such deprived rural areas where wired or wireless internet is not available due to some reason. Ammbr routers can form a wireless mesh network, with one or two Ammbr routers connected to the internet, all users can benefit and connect to the internet.
Since Ammbr is based on blockchain, there is an incentive for people sharing their unused bandwidth in the form of Ammbr tokens. Ammbr tokens will initially be launched at 0.10c per Ammbr token, and this will be the future Ammbr Network currency.
This is Ammbr vision – to provide internet to disconnected communities of rural or far flung areas where traditional players are not willing to go.
