The theme of the summit is “Empowering Communities Through Wireless Networks”.

The Air Jaldi Summit will attract wireless technology experts and community activists from India, Europe, North America, Israel, and Australia.

The Air Jaldi Summit comes in direct response to international interest in the Dharamsala Community Wireless Mesh Network. It was developed in cooperation with the Dharamsala Information Technology Group, an organization chaired by the Tibetan Computer Resource Center and some of the region’s leading information technology professionals. The Mesh backbone includes over 30 nodes , all sharing a single radio channel. Broadband Internet services are provided to all mesh members. The total upstream Internet bandwidth available is 6Mbps. There are over 2000 computers connected to the Mesh, and about 500 have Internet access.
