iciHaiti - NOTICE : 120 training scholarships in internet community networks, open registrations
"The Internet Society" (ISOC - Haiti), an American association with an international vocation created in 1992 by Internet pioneers to promote and coordinate the development of computer networks in the world, will grant more than 120 training scholarships in community networks for Haitian professionals.

Community networks refer to the telecommunications infrastructure deployed and operated by a local group to meet its own communication needs. They also bring connectivity to those who are excluded because of geography, topography, size or level of income, and allow local development, promote the development of local businesses.

By adopting community networks, economic and social benefits can be brought to Haitian communities to reduce the "digital divide" supports ISOC Haiti "Access to connectivity is a key factor that promotes opportunities and success in today's global economy. Benefits include access to e-commerce and telehealth services, distance learning, social and political engagement, government services and public safety information, and much more."

Unlike the traditional "top-down" business approach, community networks are designed from the bottom up. Deployment begins from the end user or the "last mile". Some community networks are autonomous within a community and others develop to connect to an Internet gateway via backhaul networks. Community networks are fundamentally different from traditional communication networks because they are bottom-up. They complement commercial networks, filling in the gaps and providing local access where commercial networks generally do not consider it economically viable.

ISOC Haiti is committed to training fully online more than 120 professionals in community networks and the best scholarship recipients will participate in the Internet Society Haiti Chapter projects on community networks in Haiti.
