CiPSD wins Wireless Networking Kit from ITU

The Center for Innovations and Professional Skills Development (CiPSD) has won a Wireless Networking Kit from the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). This kit consists of a Video Sender, Spectrum Analyzers, Switches, NanoStation, PicoStation, Yello UTP Cables, Red UTP Cables, Black UTP Cable, Wireless Networking in the Developing World Books (WNDW) and a copy of Radio Mobile Software.

The kit was won after the Center€„¢s head, Drake Patrick Mirembe presented an execellent proposal justifying how CiPSD would optimally use a Wireless Networking Kit to promote the five agenda€„¢s of ITU€„¢s Bureau for Development. Drake was representing the College of Computing and Information Sciences (CoCIS) during a recent Wireless Networking training of Trainers Workshop held in Kigali, Rwanda last month. The training was for all English-speaking countries in Africa and the participants were selected basing on their background in data communication, networking, and their institution€„¢s alignment to ITU€„¢s thematic areas.

The ITU is the United Nations specialized in providing ICT services with an aim to: provide human capacity building, policy and regulation harmonization, universal access to ICTs and deployment of broadband services and in Uganda, CoCIS hosts the ITU Center of Excellence.

In his proposal, Drake highlighted the current growth of wireless networking in the country and the projected future growth, the lack of professional training programs in wireless networking, the large number of College students that can benefit from wireless networking, the existence of wireless networking research groups in the College and how the College is aligned to support the delivery of ITU€„¢s thematic areas.

The College Principal, Prof. Ikoja Odongo, thanked the ITU for availing us equipment that will improve our training in the IT field and he pledged the College€„¢s continued support for ITU operations in the country.
