This network — the world’s largest green mobile network — offers voice and mobile data connectivity to deprived millions in affected Indian states. These regions include some of the most challenging terrain in the country, with practically no roads, power or security. Vihaan Networks Limited has helped BSNL set up 2,199 solar-powered mobile communication towers in 18 months, altering not just the geographical, but the social landscape of the area.
