  MCBS implemented APNET Project
APNET (Andhra Pradesh Network)
Andhra Pradesh (AP) has always been on the forefront of the IT map of India. The Govt. of AP has set an example by providing Information Technology benefits to the grassroots level people of AP by initiating an Integrated Satellite network called APNET (Andhra Pradesh Network). This network is an unique example of integration of various satellite communication technologies, like television and internet (IP) over Digital Video Broadcasting(DVB), V-SATs and Ku-Band receiving terminals. The network will support digital data and
video broadcast, interactive distance learning, IP based voice, queries and internet/intranet applications. INSAT-3B will be used
for this project, and the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has assured its assistance in setting up such a complex network.

APNET Objectives
To support distance education for schools, colleges, professional courses,      institutions of high repute.
Tele-medicine through super speciality hospitals, healthcare, rural        development.
Extending internet facilities for e-governance to the people of Andhra Pradesh.

Implementation
The APNET project is being implemented in three phases namely: >
I. Pilot : This consists of 47 nos. of primary terminals (ROT) with 250 nos. of secondary i.e. one ROT is connected to 5 TV sets through a cable network. These 5 TV set based terminals are called secondary terminals. A receive only terminal comprises a 1.2m solid Ku-Band antenna, LNBF, digital satellite receivers (MPEG-2/DVB) and 29” colour TV. This project has been completed successfully in 1999. ISRO provided transmission from MCF Hassan for this project.
II. APNET (Phase-1) and APNET Expansion (Phase-2): There are a total of 161 terminals in five different configurations as described below, which are a mix of ROT and V-SATs in Phase-1 project. This has been successfully completed and is operational presently.
APNET(Phase-2) comprises 1597 terminals which are receive only types(ROT) and this phase is under implementation. The Uplink & Hub for APNET project as shown in fig.2 consists of 5 digital video channels & IP channel using IP over DVB (to broadcast
data & IP) and V-SATs hub equipment for video, voice and data conferencing. The contract for APNET (1&2) has been awarded to Bharat Electronics Ltd.,a Public sector unit of the Govt. of India. MCBS & BEL are jointly implementing the APNET project.
