School on Computer Networking

The School on Radio Based Computer Networking for Research and Training in Developing Countries begins on 7 February and continues through 4 March. The School focuses on innovative solutions in the design and implementation of low-cost wireless local-area networks (WLANs), not only for interconnecting computers, but also for offering data, audio, and video communications. Much of the School will be devoted to hands-on sessions focusing on antenna building, installation, testing and measurement. In the final week, a roundtable discussion will take place examining the role of information and communication technology (ICT) for research and training in developing countries. On 1 March, Hamadoun Toure, Director of the International Telecommunication Union’s (ITU) Telecommunication Development Bureau, will give a public lecture on “Information Society, Developing Countries, and the Role of ITU-D".
ARPL (Aeronomy and Radiopropagation Laboratory) has conducted training activities on digital radio since 1996, which have been attended by some 1500 participants from all over the world. As a result of the training, a series of concrete ICT projects have been initiated, developed and successfully completed in Nigeria, Sudan, Benin, Ghana and Romania.
