Provide reliable and sustainable wireless solutions to help foster science and research in Developing Countries. Organize training activities on state-of-the-art wireless technologies. Setup collaborations with academic partners and with international organizations.
Recently the team of T/ICT4D Laboratory has focussed on:
- Deploying Wireless Networks to connect academic institutions in Developing Countries.
- Disseminate knowledge using the "Wireless Networking in the Developing World" book. This freely downloadable book is available in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Arabic. The goal of the book is to help everyone get the resources they need to build wireless networks that solve real communication problems.
- Training scientists on the use of Wireless Sensor Networks to monitor radiations .
Most of our activities are organized in collaboration with the International Telecommunication Union-Telecommunication Development Bureau
(ITU-BDT). The ITU-BDT was established to help spread equitable, sustainable and affordable access to information and communication technologies (ICT) as a means of stimulating broader social and economic development.
We have been collaborating with EsLaRed (Fundacion Escuela Latinoamericana de Redes) to organize training activities in Latin America since 1992.
We have signed agreements to organize common activities and to collaborate in the field of wireless research with the I2IT , International Institute of Information Technology in Pune, India, with NIT , the National Institute of Telecommunications of Poland, with the University of Cape Town , South Africa and with the Network Resource Startup Center , USA.
