To select a pilot city, KSP Consultants established a guideline. Based on the guideline and discussions with related persons, KSP consultant selected 'Orcopampa' as a pilot city which is one of the major mining cities in Peru and has a population of 5,643. After the selection, KSP consultants visited Orcopampa to conduct a survey on the current status of equipment and facilities.
As the results of the site survey, KSP consultants found that the transmission network between Arequipa and Orcopampa should be expanded first to provide a broadband access network to Orcopampa. However, since that is beyond KSP project scope Telefonica (Peruvian telecommunications operator) was requested to broaden the wireless transmission network from Arequipa to Orcopampa by the Peruvian government under different project. After analyzing and reviewing various methods, KSP consultant decided to design the network using FTTH method to connect all the related organizations, hospitals and schools in Orcopampa.
At the same time with designing broadband access network, KSP consultant surveyed and analyzed Korean development experiences and cases of utilization of broadband network establishment. KSP consultant retraced the overall history for the past 11 years (1995~2005) of national broadband backbone project of Korea and analyzed the achievements.
In addition to that, KSP consultants surveyed broadband development cases on Korea’s rural areas and pilot projects to select a solution for Orcopampa. Based on an in-depth research and discussions, KSP consultant selected 'telemedicine service' as the solution to be applied to Orcopampa. Telemedicine is a kind of U-health service for patients in rural to be provided with a medical treatment from remotely located hospital through broadband network. KSP consultant demonstrated telemedicine solution and gave ICT training to the related agencies.
