Type of document: Chapters and Articles in Books
Open wireless standards are not only bringing new technical opportunities at very low cost but also bringing the Internet model to an area that it was restricted to traditional telecommunication operators. It is still uncertain if the growth of private investment in wireless infrastructure will slow down even more the required structural investments in fixed backbone networks. In any case, keeping the network infrastructure open and affordable are necessary conditions to facilitate the freer and wider dissemination of information of all kinds.

A tower of 150 feet has been erected at Fanstuam Foundation premises. Fanstuam headquarters is one kilometer from the center of Kafanchan, where many of the potential partners are situated. The visibility in a normal is more difficult that i expected as the dust makes very difficult to see the sites that are more than 1.2 Kms away. We needed to climb the tower over 20 meters to have the first look of the town. Fantsuam is at least 10 meters lower than the town center.

Hot, Dust and an insane power grid
Type of document: IT46 Blog
We are working in Kafanchan (Nigeria) with Fantsuam Foundation. The server room is going to require some changes to accommodate the new wireless NOC. The dust is really an enemy here and it is difficult to find good solutions to isolate computers without a good cooling system. Unfortunately the power grid is just insane, voltage fluctuates constantly and although we have three phases coming into the premises, the generator is the only reliable source of power. And when the power from the grid comes it stays 80-90 V for hours; bulbs work... PCs do not. In the server room a fuse allows us to choose the phase (of the three available)... as sometimes power is only available in one of them. ...

During the last ten days we have conducted a hands-on training on community wireless. Theoretical lectures have been combined with practical exercises and a few site survey implementations. The training model has the strengths that the community get to see quick results that come out of the theoretical sessions... the main problem is the amount on information that is provided in this very sort time. It will be good to consider a longer training period where other topics are delivered in combination with the wireless training. Energy solutions and traffic control solutions should be build as part of the training. The area is bast as a full solution requires: energy, business models, wireless technology and lots of plumbing knowledge. We have been trying to integrate all these knowledge areas in the best manner. ...

[PDF] Life and the elements

I have been working intensively in Tegucigalpa in a radio link with the University. After four days of training and hard work the link was up and running. The radio link runs between the University Campus at the Faculty of Medical Sciences. All was looking great, the link was running stable with a steady 3 Mbps (useful) bandwidth. It was lots of fun to work at University and the Hondurans have a great sense of humor when it comes to life. We joked a lot about the weather and what may happen to the link during those months of rain, wind and thunders. The very same day that the link was implemented I gave a presentation to the different representatives of the University. I took the chance to talk to the members from different regions of Honduras as they were attending a training. I prepared a short presentation about wireless... I concluded the presentation saying that I was waiting for a big storm to see how the link was going to behave. And yes!! I got my storm, we lost electricity for 36 hours, a few electrical transformers blew up and during that time I was wondering, will the radio link survive? How am i going to explain to the funders that the radio link that I just implemented was gone :-D. ...
