VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Corinex Communications Corp., a leading provider of Powerline and Coaxial networking products, announces today that they will lead a project to provide Internet access to villages in India through Broadband over Powerline (BPL) technology. The technology will connect adjoining villages in India to the Internet using existing powerlines to transfer broadband Internet access. Corinex’s BPL technology is one of the recipients of joint science and technology research awards and development initiatives between India and Canada, valued at more than $17 million.

The objective of this research and development project is to develop BPL technology to suit Indian conditions so the technology can be later deployed for large scale use. The technology will deliver multi-fold benefits to India when it connects villages throughout the country to the Internet. Corinex’s BPL technology will provide access to multiple forms of communication including the World Wide Web and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).

Vancouver-based Corinex will be working with the Indian Institute of Information Technology (Allahabad) in partnership with the Maple Leaf India Pvt. Limited in New Delhi, India.

“We are extremely pleased to be working with our colleagues at Maple Leaf India and the Indian Institute of Information Technology on this project,” said Scott Despot, Senior Director of Sales at Corinex Communications Corp. “Bringing Internet connectivity to remote villages in India with Corinex’s Broadband over Powerline technology is a very exciting endeavor, and we look forward to the project.”
