Gwagwalada Community Telecentre Outfit
Owing to retrogressive state of cybercafe, this project, Gwagwalada Community Telecentre Outfit (GCTO) is well positioned to correct and promote improvement of standards and implementation of best practices by providing high speed Internet in a structured communication outfit for students of Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) and community people dwelling in Gwagwalada to meet the telecommunication needs of these August populace with triple-play services (Voice, Video and Data services). The implementation of this project was carried out using a dual-link to NIGCOMSAT-1R satellite with a view to deploying effective and modern ICT Centre at Gwagwalada, a satellite town in Abuja. The project began with NIGCOMSAT LTD installing Ku-band antenna and iDirect two-way IP router (X3 iDirect Evolution Modem) in the GCTO’s Server Room. GCTO Hotspot Wimax architecture is designed to make possible a Metropolitan Area Netwok (MAN) that lets typical community users and vast majority of National Open University (NOUN) students ubiquitously subscribe to a well secured wireless network at Gwagwalada and environs and not necessarily visiting the centre to acquire access to the network. My aim is also to show how Nigerian Communication Satellite (1r) can be utilized by the National Open University students as well as some rural dwellers in Gwagwalada by supporting Gwagwalada Community Telecentre Outfit (GCTO). Integration of Solar Power System with this project has uninterrupted power supply possible for the Centre. // Paper ID 164
