Setting up a computer network has become easier over the years as operating systems and networking technologies have improved, and storage and networking peripherals have evolved to incorporate plug and play features. Networking also allows you to use a printer connected to a different computer, and access media and other resources, such as images and music, which are stored remotely or across the office.
The main reasons for having a computer network is to get more use out of your computers and peripherals, particularly for businesses; corporate enterprises, small and home business users.
There are also cost savings benefits for setting up networks as it allows businesses and users to share a single broadband Internet connection among multiple computers and PC users. They are able to share files among computers more easily and also share software resources such as diaries.
This is the core of our business as we have plenty experience of setting up computer networks in Hong Kong, London and Freetown, Sierra Leone. We can help you decide the type of computer network you need, whether you should go wired or wireless, what equipment you need for your network, How do I secure the network and advice you on what else you can use my network for.
We are working with BRCK, a leading tech company based in Nairobi, Kenya to take technology to rural Sierra Leone using the BRCK Kio kit. In April 2016, BRCK were invited to the country's first open data festival to showcase the Kio Kit. In the photos oposite, Nivi Sharma, the president of BRCK Education gave a powerful presentation which was well received.
Kacho Solutions is working with international partners to secure funding for this project. The Kio Kit is a simple and elegant solution that can turn any classroom into a digital classroom in minutes. It is designed for schools with poor infrastructure. With an 8hr battery life to manage intermittent power in rural areas, the tablets can run multimedia content locally cached on the BRCK, the “brains” of the Kio Kit, throughout the school day. We no longer only get online via desktops in our office with an ethernet connection, we have multiple devices, and mobile connectivity is crucial.
Improving the quality of education in our schools - our work with BRCK
We believe that the youths are the future of any country, in Sierra Leone. Our work with Youth is strategically to implement a program that is geared towards meeting some of the Sustainable Development Goals. We will work with any non-political, non-religious and non-profit making non-Governmental Organization that is focused on promoting children, youth and other vulnerable groups in their communities.
The purpose to give them the skills, knowledge, tools and resources they need to transform their lives. We will work with these organisations to promote healthy, economically self-reliant communities by creating awareness, self-discipline and respect for self and others.
The objective of our work with is to bring world-class digital access to the youth of Sierra Leone to improve their learning outcomes and enhance workforce development efforts. Typically, effective digital access has proved difficult in Africa due to the poor infrastructure. We will will be working with them to establish youth centers in Freetown and gradually expand to other cities and towns in the county providing wi-fi hotspot with customised contents for the youth centers.
