Huawei training

Huawei Kenya concluded a week-long online training on 5G for over 240 university students from around the country as part of broader efforts to prepare the country to take advantage of this new transformative technology.

Many countries and economic blocks around the world have already launched 5G strategies and plans that have identified how important 5G will be to their economies in both creating jobs and creating economic output.

They have found that 5G has the ability to rapidly roll-out high speed connectivity for homes, businesses, schools and hospitals. It enables step-changes in industrial productivity in sectors such as manufacturing and transport, creates opportunities for entirely new business models and services in industries such as tourism, entertainment, gaming and broadcasting and it does all this with lower carbon emissions per MB of data.

The course has greatly assisted the students in understanding 5G technology, from the perspective of technology, standards, regulation, policy, economy, society and environment.

The trainer for the course was Huawei global specialist Ding Yajie who was able to answer many of the student’s questions as well as ask them questions to test their understanding at the end of each session. Topics that Mr Ding covered included 5G architecture, different deployment scenarios, application uses and challenges.

On Thursday,15th of August 2019, Pioneer International University and VMware signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).

This MOU was signed by Vice-Chancellor, Dr. Gideon Maina J.K. (Ph.D.) and VMware Senior Director, Strategic Programs & Global Delivery, Thomas MacKay.

The two organizations declared that this was a mutual commitment that would lead to cooperation within the scope of their mandates and sphere of competences, putting technology and expertise to work towards transforming lives, impacting societies and the world. This collaboration will involve training of trainers who will thereafter transfer knowledge to Information Technology students who will be certified thereby gaining valuable experience through certification courses, hands-on labs, e-text references, discounted study material, free software, and more.

Pioneer International University, whose vision is to be a world-class market-driven university of excellence for the good of society attaches great importance to this collaboration with VMware, which is a subsidiary of Dell, gaining yet another major partner in the effort to  help educators teach in innovative ways in addition to helping institutions reduce cost through the virtualization product that makes it possible to partition a single physical server into multiple virtual machines.

Dell introduced ‘The 2020 Legacy of Good Plan’ in 2013, with ambitious sustainability and social goals to put technology and expertise to work to do good for people and the planet. Pioneer International University intends to pursue further opportunities with Dell to do Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) that will tap into the blue economy in an endeavor to continue impacting coastal communities through job creation, women empowerment, digital and financial literacy. Previously Pioneer International University has carried out social projects in Lamu thus creating good working relationships in the area.
