The iHub is excited to host the first Telecom Infra Project (TIP) OpenCellular Workshop in Africa on the 19 and 20th of June 2017.

OpenCellular is an open source hardware and software project designed and tested by Facebook that aims to bring a more affordable wireless access platform to remote areas through utilising the benefits of open source on access technologies. The workshop will bring together the OpenCellular ecosystem, which includes the open-source developer community, mobile network operators, OEMs and regulators for a discussion on connectivity. If you want to influence the conversation, policy and technology to get more people online, this workshop is for you!

The iHub has a long history of supporting several open source communities across Kenya through hosting developer meet-ups and conferences. We serve the tech community, by connecting organisations and people, building market relevant solutions and being ahead of the curve of innovation.

At the OpenCellular Workshop you will have the opportunity to join likeminded innovators in the OpenCellular community while learning about open access technologies. Hands-on demos of the latest hardware, keynote addresses and practical panel sessions add to an exciting event. The iHub is working to become the best African support system for ICT focused tech entrepreneurs and individuals who aspire to create great companies that tackle some of our biggest challenges such as connectivity. Our environment of trust and experimentation focusing on our local ecosystem in Kenya and Africa makes us the natural host for the OpenCellular Workshop.
