October update from the IDIA

This month, IDIA will meet in Johannesburg, South Africa, to discuss the initial projects that will receive support from the Alliance.

The meeting, attended by key decision makers, will formalize and confirm the levels of support and deliverables from the two initial projects looking at infrastructure developments in Ethiopia and the evolution of Smart Cities. It is hoped that these projects will serve to layout IDIA’s methods of operation and lead the work that is to follow in creating best practices and guidelines for wider research projects to follow.

With regulators and governments around the world all planning the development of their own 5G and IoT infrastructure, the initial research conducted by IDIA is expected to be eagerly awaited by many interested parties.  We will continue to update our news and social channels as milestones are reached, so watch this space for further information.
