Software Defined Radio - Talk, Indian Laguage Transliteration on Mobile - Demo
Talk Topic: Software Defined Radio and Vanu’s RAN solution by Pradeep Malhotra, Managing Director at Vanu, India.
Vanu Anywave® radio access network (RAN) is an integrated suite of products and technologies that spans from the antenna site to the telecom switch interface. At the core of the Anywave RAN is innovative Vanu Software Radio technology incorporated into the base station.Vanu software radio is the most complete realization of the software radio vision anywhere in industry. The software that implements radio communications standards – including the high speed signal processing functions for the air interface – is simply a collection of portable applications that run on a high-volume server or any PC board. The radio front end is standards-neutral and can support multiple channels at the same time
The talk would focus on general technology of software defined radio and Vanu’s implementation of the same in RAN.
Demo: Demonstration of Quill Mobile, a predictive transliteration technology for Indian languages, for mobile input devices by Ram Prakash . H, Managing Director, Tachyon Technologies
Transliteration for Indian languages, even with the full-sized 108-key keyboards is a complex task due to the necessity to map the 26 letters of the English alphabet to more number of characters in Indian languages. The complexity increases even further due to conjuncts in Indian languages and different representations. The complexity grows exponentially when it comes down to mobile keypads as only 8-10 keys can be made use of. QuillMobile, based on the Quill engine , makes inputting Indian language text as simple as inputting english text by letting the user type in the letters phonetically, much like what t9 is for english input
