    • INTRA-WEBCAST EXPERIMENT AND EXPERIENCE Nasir Faruk Segun Ajayi Department of Telecommunication Science Department of Physics, Faculty of Communication and Faculty of Physical Sciences Information Sciences University of Ilorin, Nigeria University of Ilorin, Nigeria Emails: segundexty@gmail.com Email: faruk.n@unilorin.edu.ng, segundexty@hotmail.com Mobile: +(234) 8032428141 Mobile: +(234)8060645658 www.gigawavetechnology.webs.com Presented at Youth Engagement Summit , Mauritius 5 th December, 2013
    • Outline Introduction  Motivation  Project Target  System Architecture  Testing/Results  Challenges and Further work  Way forward for a better AFRICA 
    • Introduction      Live streaming: Listening or viewing multimedia apps in real time The traditional streaming media: Usually via the internet. Intranet webcast requires no global network or broadband like the internet. This experiment describes a technology for live streaming of various TV programs on a local area network It is accessible from mobile phones, Internet TVs, tablets and PCs.
    • Motivations  Youth engagement/Hands on  The need for internet connection for traditional live streaming  Recurrent cost for bandwidth particularly in African region  Broadband penetration: USA 75%  Digital dividend: Global and National  Bandwidth Management (Saving): FTP, HTTP do not require much bandwidth as multimedia applications

    • Mobile broadband Internet subscriptions in 2012 as a percentage of a country's population Source: International Telecommunications Union
    • Project Target  Innovation on access provision in developing communities  Entrepreneurship and  Youth Empowerment

    • Roaming Supports      Repeaters maintains a single SSID throughout the wireless cloud Repeaters are on bridge mode End user’s device will not need to re-initiate connection with the next repeater The mobile device assumes the same access point all over the coverage area. Hence, the IP address is not changed and the streaming session is not interrupted.
    • Testing    Users connect to the network and been assign an IP by the router To connect to this stream, a user must lunch a browser from his device and log on to the URL www.datalink.net ( Click liveTV on the web page

    • Further work and challenges  Further work      Multiple streams broadcast where users can choose what to watch Performance evaluation Embedding the solution on WMN infrastructure, project funded by AFRINIC Commercializing? Challenges     Finance/funding Power failure, currently running on National grid: need for alternative clean energy Coverage Need for Robust servers with multiple PCI slots
    • Way forward for a better Africa  Collaboration amongst Universities in Africa      Knowledge transfer Student exchange programme Staff exchange Postdoctoral opportunities Scholarships for post graduate studies Industrial-Academic links  Research Africa: http://www.researchresearch.com  Funding    Government NGOs
