Launching of regional workshop on the theme :  Developing the ICT ecosystem to harness Internet of Things (IoT)
On the 28th June, at Holiday Inn Hotel (Plaine-Magnien)

 

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU), which is the United Nations specialised agency in the field of telecommunications, information and communication technologies, defines the Internet of things (IoT) as a global infrastructure for the information society, enabling advanced services by interconnecting (physical and virtual) things based on existing and evolving interoperable information and communication technologies.

Hence, the IoT can be perceived as a far-reaching vision with technological and societal implications. The IoT applications include various kinds of applications, such as intelligent transportation systems, smart grid, e-health or smart home.
 

The workshop enabled stakeholders from both the public and private sectors to take cognizance of IoT initiatives in Mauritius and of the country’s preparedness to capitalise on IoT.
