Dadaab Refugee Camp Network Connection
Setright and Inveneo co-designed and built a high-speed network to connect the Dadaab agencies locally and to enable bandwidth-intensive, intra-agency collaboration technologies like file sharing, video conferencing designed by Cisco and voice over IP telephony applications.
This collaboration network, Dadaab NET, also provides a Cisco router-based failover configuration to switch agency traffic to a 4-Mbps, UNHCR-provided satellite system in the event of primary connection failure. This effort involved IP addressing and configuration support from both Setright and Inveneo as well as consultative engineering support from UNHCR and the Dadaab Aid Agency IT staff.
Installation of a Wireless Internet Link to Organic Health Response (OHR), Mfangano Island
The purpose of the project was to install a wireless internet link from Kisumu to Organic Health Response, which is an NGO on a remote island in the middle of Lake Victoria.
Our engineers together with our partner Inveneo from San Francisco, managed to install a 90km wireless link (60% of which is over water), pushing the limits of long-distance WiFi’s capabilities. The NGO now has a center equipped with computers, library, and training facility.
Supply and Installation of ICT Equipment
Over the years, Setright has supplied Orange Kenya with DC-DC Converters and POEs for use with Ubiquiti Radios and Ubiquiti equipment for Point to Multipoint connectivity. We have successfully conducted NMS Setup and Micro-tik Training. Orange has been a key client for the Supply and Installation of light duty guyed masts.
Solar Power Community Knowledge Centre (CKCs)
The aim of this project was to bringing connectivity and information access to underserved areas in the country through Community Knowledge Centers (CKCs). Our team of engineers installed solar power systems to power up the CKCs.
A typical CKC is equipped with fifteen Inveneo low power computers that are networked together and are equipped with peripherals such as webcams, headphones and speakers. There are also a number of shared resources in each CKC, such as printers and projectors that are solar powered. The others have battery systems to back up the often-unreliable local electrical grid.
Additionally, Setright and Inveneo has worked with these Centers to design and equip long-distance wireless (WiFi) networks connecting locations from their main community center (including the primary/secondary schools) so that they are all able to access the Internet and share the cost of bandwidth.
Residential Power Backup System
Point to Point Connection
Client: AMPATH Kenya
The purpose of the project was to interconnect 30 remote Ampath Clinics by networking them and outfitting them with workstations linked to the central Open Mailbox Replication Service (MRS) server in the Head Office at the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital, Eldoret.
The Point to Point connection has significantly transformed the way AMPATH provides medical care. The clinics now have access to Voice over IP (VOIP) services and can utilize video conferencing for communication. The high- speed network linking the clinics allows the Eldoret based doctors and specialists to advise the field clinicians, nurses, and health workers as they meet with patients, helping with diagnosis and treatment in real or near-real time
Wind and Solar Hybrid Solution
Client: MS Telcom, Angola
This scope of this project was the installation of a Hybrid Energy solution composed of wind and solar power in an MS Telcom base station in Cabo Ledo, Angola. This solution is beneficial in that it maintains uptime of the telecommunications equipment while utilizing sustainable energy.
Kapese Tower Construction in Turkana for Tullow Oil
Client: Tullow Oil, Kenya
The engineering team at Setright undertook the civil works and installation of a state of the art 30 meters solar powered tower in Kapese, Turkana for Tullow Oil Kenya.
The team in-charge is highly specialized in Renewable Energy Projects. They installed a solar system at the site to serve as the primary power source for the server room. Utilization of solar power would ensure minimal diesel consumption and reduced diesel generator maintenance.
Tower Construction and Installation – Eaton Towers
Low Powered Computer Lab in Lalama School, Angola
Client: Ministry of Telecommunication, Angola
Our team of engineers successfully installed 10 low-wattage Solar Powered desktop computers in a pilot study project in Lalama Primary School, Angola. The computers are powered by a 240 Volts solar power system. The pilot was a success and the team is currently gearing up for the countrywide rollout of the project.
