ZINOX sponsors global IoT Geneva summit 2017
In furtherance of its corporate philosophy and superior business principle to continue the acceleration and development of the digital revolution, ZINOX Technologies Group is sponsoring Chris Uwaje, a former President of the Institute of Software Practitioners of Nigeria (ISPON), to the 2017 Global Internet of Things (IoT) in Geneva, Switzerland.
Uwaje, an invited speaker, and the Africa Chair on Communications and Publicity, IoT Geneva 2017, will speak as a panellist on Africa perspectives and challenges on Ipv6.
With this sponsorship, ZINOX assumes fundamental leadership of national ICT policy and strategy matters, where government should, at all time, be at the forefront. In the absence of this, and cognisant of the future requirements of 70 per cent youths that makeup Nigeria/Africa population, ZINOX is lighting up the way to the sustainable progress of the Nigerian nation the continent.
According to the Chairman, ZINOX Group, Dr. Leo Stan Ekeh, Africa stands to gain immensely if she can leapfrog from her present deep slumber on ICT Ecosystem development, and engages the values of IoTs, with estimated market potential valued at $19 trillion by 2020.
Uwaje is selected and invited to represent Africa and speak as a panellist of the Global IPv6 Forum on the state and challenges of Internet Version 6 (Ipv6) at the 1st Global IoT Summit (GIoTS).
Today, “IoT is rapidly evolving with the substantial risk of not paying attention to safety, reliability, privacy, security, and interoperability. Research has a fundamental role to enable a globally interoperable IoT and to make it right,” said Sebastien Ziegler, General Chair and President of the IoT Forum.
