KEEPING UP WITH ONGOS VALLEY DEVELOPMENT- A SMART PARTNERSHIP WITH TELECOM NAMIBIA
Ongos Valley Development recently celebrated a partnership with Telecom Namibia to transform Ongos Valley into a smart city with all-things-digital. With the dramatic shift of 55% of the world’s population moving into urban areas, it is only fit that we join the bandwagon and look into the vision of building a smart city, with Telecom Namibia at the forefront of this transformation!
The objective of the recent partnership is to set out areas of mutual cooperation with the aim of promoting and developing areas of mutual interest in areas related, but not limited to, fixed line services, mobile connectivity, internet, wireless, data, management, fibre installations, surveillance and all other agreed telecommunication and/or information technology and all current and future Ongos developments
So, what is a smart city?
A smart city is an urban area that uses different types of electronic methods and sensors to collect data. The smart city concept integrates information and communication technology (ICT), and various physical devices connected to the network (the “Internet of everything” or IoE) to optimize the efficiency of city operations, services and connect to citizens while simultaneously improving their quality of life. Smart city applications are developed to manage urban flows and allow for real-time responses.
This essence of any smart city is reliable connectivity. This smart partnership serves as a commitment to transform Ongos Valley into the digital, liveable, inclusive, sustainable and prosperous smart city it aspires to be. The dream is to make Ongos Valley the epitome of “Urban Excellence in Africa”. First of its kind – an ambitious achievable goal. The partnership with Telecom Namibia is surely one for the books.
