www.TAHO.com.br Challenges for BroadBand Zero Infrastructure Old Infrastructure New Infrastructure High Cost of Backbone High Cost of CPE Time to Market Law of Demand / Offers / Capital Content Transition Phase Intellectual Property Technology Transition Phase Habit Convergence Consolidation
www.TAHO.com.br TAHO experience with these Challenges and Opportunities
TAHO Mission www.TAHO.com.br TAHO First Mission is to bring Access to Underserved People in Brasil TAHO started by selecting a strong technology and applied it to Slums ( Favelas ) like Rocinha ( largest in Latin America ) and others. In the second phase, TAHO brought this technology to Underserved Communities, like Petropolis , the Imperial City of Americas (near Rio de Janeiro) , and to large Companies. Today, TAHO is scaling a new model with complementary technology and business model with the vision to provide DEEP DIGITAL IMMERSSION to the Society in Brazil
www.TAHO.com.br This experience in TAHO showed that there are 4 types of Human usage of Internet Access

How to Scale ??? www.TAHO.com.br
Tunneling the Social Gap www.TAHO.com.br Thechallenge for emerging countries is to accelerate the economy in a sustainable way; Acondition for that is to minimize the gap between social structures; Providing internet services will reduce the gap between communities.
www.TAHO.com.br TUNELING THE SOCIAL GAP A CASE STUDY TAHO Cyber Cafés in the favelas (with support of the ONG VivaRio)
www.TAHO.com.br The convergence of habits or social convergence is faster than technological convergence
Rocinha Favela Result: since 2001, 27,000 DIGITAL RE-INCLUSIONS www.TAHO.com.br
Favela Result: since 2001, 27,000 DIGITAL RE-INCLUSIONS www.TAHO.com.br
Results www.TAHO.com.br Direct results - community of Rocinha – From the World Economic Forum (2003) > 100.000 Home pages visited / month; 27.000 Clients from 2001; 2/5 of clients are less than 18 years; Of these, 1/3 less than 11 years; Service 24 x 7; Service cost: 1 Real / hour; Management and maintenance assumed by the favela; ZERO depredation; Technology Validation. Indirect results Re-use of the technology in others projects (CVRD, Petrobras, Banks); Worldwide recognition; Good press acceptance; Social acceptance; Technology model is scalable and robust; Social Convergence; Discovery of new Opportunities.
www.TAHO.com.br TUNELING THE SOCIAL GAP Scalability, Sustainability Principles of the Business Model
Business Models The Principle www.TAHO.com.br Two key words: Sustainability and Scalability SuperServed communities: Full fledge commercial operations. Project will pay for 100% of the infrastructure. UnderServed communities will benefit for a ‘free’ infrastructure, and will use a ‘marginal cost’ model, with positive operating cash flows; Nike strategy ‘Just do it’. Self-sustainable. TAHO experience is that the deployment is best done when the community is in charge of it. Clear advantage of wireless NLOS: permit a re-use of infrastructure (towers, backbone, etc.).
Two Business Models PPP – Public Private PartnerShips www.TAHO.com.br Large scales to reduce costs Example 1: WISPs as Carriers of Carriers Example 2: Wireless Network for the city of Pirai in Rio de Janeiro All public buildings (hospitals, offices, schools) are connected using wireless technology TAHO donated the equipments and used government-owned infrastructure TAHO has the right to re-use the signal for for-profit commercial operations This project received an award at the World-Wide information society convention in Geneva ( December 2003) SPP – Social, Profitable Partnerships Profitable Markets with Value Added Service Example IMOBIA Laws imply that the trend is in the growing Delta Behavior IBANK
Example: IBank, A Strong Opportunity in www.TAHO.com.br Brazil for WIMAX
www.TAHO.com.br All Employees and Partners from TAHO are committed to dedicate 5% of their time to DIGITAL RE-INCLUSION
Conclusion www.TAHO.com.br The social approach will accelerate the development of technologies and markets. WIMAX can be a strong tool in this Impossible Mission - The Deep Digital Immersion Sergio Cabral, Laurent Gil, LC Abad - WCA 2004 Sergio @ TAHO.COM.BR Laurent @ TAHO.COM.BR Abad @ TAHO.COM.BR Please visit and Join TAHO initiative: www.ideavalley.com.br www.ideacapital.com.br www.TAHO.com.br www.vivafavela.com.br www.endeavor.org www.wcai.com
