Pragati Maidan press release digital India

New Delhi, India – 30 June 2015: Pronto Networks, a leading provider of wireless technologies and carrier-class operations support systems (OSS) for managing large scale Wi-Fi networks, announced today that their platform will be deployed at the internationally renowned Pragati Maidan, the largest convention hall in New Delhi. Spanning 72,000 sq. feet, the structure was designed by legendary architect Raj Rewal and inaugurated in 1972. The complex is composed of 18 exhibition halls and runs over 70 exhibitions annually.

Known to cater to the most prestigious event in India, Pragati Maidan has a reputation as an iconic landmark in New Delhi. Pragati Maidan’s managing organization recognized the need for a public Wi-Fi network that would not only facilitate public access but also offer the infrastructure facilities that are necessary to support its ongoing exhibits and conferences.

Pronto’s deployment marks the launch of the premier exhibition at Pragati Maidan, the 35th annual India International Trade Fair (IITF). Starting on 16th November 2015 and spanning two weeks, Pragati Maidan will be host to 7,000 exhibitors and over 300,000 visitors. Organized by India Trade Promotion Organization, IITF is a meeting ground for international companies to demonstrate innovation and cement long lasting partnerships throughout multiple verticals. This year’s event theme was “Make in India” and catered to various stakeholders such as exporters, entrepreneurs, investors and international conglomerates.

Pronto Networks, in partnership Delhi State Government, setup a network of Pronto’s advanced cloud managed 802.11ac Access Points and OSS platform to provide guaranteed access and best in class service. Pronto’s cloud managed Aps allowed for remote management and plug and play installation at the venue. Pronto Networks’ OSS platform was a key infrastructure component and offered critical back-office and service control functions including user registration, secure authentication, subscriber management, flexible billing, customer portal customization, and remote network management.

“We are very excited to have been picked by Pragati Maidan as their Wi-Fi technology provider. We couldn’t imagine a better event than the International Trade Fair to inaugurate our solution.” Said Nandu Desai CEO of Pronto Networks.
