As the Ebola crisis continues to hit hard in West Africa, Inveneo recently launched its Ebola Response Connectivity Initiative (ERCI)to bring Internet connectivity to doctors, nurses, and others working at medical centers located in Sierra Leone. On Wednesday December 10th, several of the team’s engineers, contractors, and few employees gathered together in San Francisco for pre-deployment training.
Inveneo is a non-for-profit social enterprise that delivers the tools of technology – sustainable computing and broadband – to those who need it most in the developing world, transforming lives through better education, healthcare, economic opportunities and faster emergency relief.
The ERCI project is already underway and the Inveneo team has been busy ordering and moving ICT equipment to a warehouse in Accra, Ghana. Such equipment include Ubiquiti’s Rocket M5 Radio, AirMax Sectors, RocketDish 30 cBi Dishes, AirFiber5, NanaoBridge M5 25, and the Mikrotik RouterBoard CCR 1009.
