5G Technology Observatory to be launched in Angola
The Angolan Ministry of Telecommunications, Information Technologies and Social Communication (MINTTICS) last week concluded a partnership with the International University of Cuanza (UNIC) to implement a 5G Technology Observatory in the country, reports from the capital Luanda said.
"This observatory will allow students and operators in the sector to create conditions aiming to spur a digital transformation process to boost the incubation of projects emerging within the academic world,” minister Manuel Homem said.
Homem stressed that the 5G technology dream was slowly but surely becoming a reality in the country. Hence there was a need to launch a 5G observatory to meet the challenges of the new generation of electronic communications, the minister added.
The agreement comes at a time when the government is mulling to kick off the decentralisation and diversification of the poles of technological knowledge.
The decentralised project such as this will make it possible to boost IT training of local people to build their capacity of responding to the new demands of modern telecommunications, the ministry said.
