Over the last two days, wireless experts from the International Center for Theoretical Physics (ICTP - Trieste, Italy) and the Network Startup Resource Center have worked alongside staff from University of Ghana - Legon and Université Cheikh Anta Diop (UCAD) to plan and deploy a wireless link between the UCAD and the ADIE (Agence De l’Informatique de l’État) in Dakar, Sénégal. The wireless link is an important step that will help interconnect the universities of Thiès, Bambey, Saint Louis and the UCAD into what will become Sénégal’s national R&E network (Research and Education), SnRER.
