A team formed by MoRENet and ARECOM participated in the Workshop on LPWAN for The Internet of Things, from 17-21 February 2020 at Makerere University, Uganda.

 Four NREN's (National Research and Education Networks) participated in this Workshop, namely: The Kenya Education Network (KENET), the Mozambique Research and Education Network (MoRENet), the Tanzania Education and Research Network (TERNET) and Research and Education Network for Uganda (RENU). In addition to the NREN’s, other stakeholders involved in the workshop included the International Center for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), UbuntuNet Alliance, Network Startup Resource Center (NSRC) and the Internet Society. These institutions are interested in low power and long distance network (LPWAN) solutions for the development of the education and research network interconnected through the Internet of Things.


NREN’s involvement in East Africa is critical to the development of Internet of Things (IoT) applications in the region, as they can host the access infrastructure to promote IoT research and serve the IoT community.

At the Workshop, long distance and low power network (LPWAN) solutions based on open standards that meet the requirements of scalability, heterogeneity, security and complexity were presented. The Things Network (TTN) was one of the solutions to provide a set of open tools and a global network to create IoT applications at low cost, with security and scalability. TTN operates by allowing users to share access to gateways. It is believed that the NRENs in the region can play a leading role in hosting this infrastructure. Because TTN allows low-bandwidth communications over long distances, it can facilitate the deployment of relevant applications for East African countries.
