How to apply for IP1 License in India

When you think about Infrastructure as a Service, you start imagining the scope of cloud services. You mostly do this because you have a misconception. You think that infra as a service is only meant by cloud service providers, which is a misconception.

Infrastructure providers have existed ever since the term telecom industry came into India. They are the providers of passive hardware infrastructure that to this day hold the same strength as before. Without them, you wouldn’t even have cloud technology. Think about it. Would you be able to:

  1. Provide cloud services without high-quality internet
  2. Provide services in remote regions filled with a lot of infrastructures
  3. Prevent the hardware from getting damaged because of access heat

Of course not. Without passive and nonelectrical infrastructure, none of the above would be possible. Following are the resources that have a part of passive infrastructure, allow the active infrastructure of today to exist.

  1. Dark fiber allows high-quality internet services to reach subscribers.
  2. Right of the way allows the telecom companies to bypass the land laws and connect their wires across the cities.
  3. And, it’s Duct space that allows ventilation for the servers – providing heat ventilation services so that the servers can’t overheat.

Bearing these points in mind, I think it’s time to think of Infra as a service with a new light. And think of the scope that becoming an Infrastructure provider of passive resources can give you. if you can think about them, it’s also time to think of how can you apply for an IP1 License in India
