WiMax is the promised shangrila for bigger broadband penetration in India. It’s been a distant hope for many years and there’s been much hype surrounding it. Lately, we’ve been hearing about WiMax being deployed in a few cities in India, so it’s a good time to get a realistic take on the WiMax scenario.
We speak with Sujai Karampuri, the founder and CEO of Sloka Telecom, a company that aims to be an important player in the WiMax market in India.
Sujai has 10 years of wireless experience in product development, system architecture and strategy formulation. He has worked with Alcatel in the U.S. and Europe for seven years, where he focused on GSM wireless networks.

Sujai obtained his bachelors from REC, Warangal and got his masters from Michigan Tech, Houghton.
