Ericsson Launches Automation Hub in Nigeria
Ericsson announces plans to create an Automation Hub in Nigeria to support operators for improved consumer experience.
Ericsson Automation Hub is an open innovation platform, inspired by lean startup methodology in which the Ericsson team works in close dialog with customers, users and partners to showcase and reach the high potential that network automation allows in configuration, provisioning, assurance and orchestration of network services.
This will enable service providers to gain the ability in their environments to govern, manage and orchestrate hybrid networks holistically and in real time and as a result, offer an enhanced consumer experience.
Fields to be covered include but not limited to 5G and Internet of Things (IoT) use cases, Network Slicing and Orchestration, Hologram Calls, Complex Standalone, Business Support System (BSS) and Operations Support System (OSS), Cloud and Core product cases, Automated Acceptance Tests demonstration and enhancements as well as complex charging scenarios for 5G and 4G networks.
Lucky La Riccia, Vice President and Head of Digital Services at Ericsson Middle East and Africa at Ericsson says: “As Industry 4.0 accelerates in Africa, automation in operations is proven to boost customer experiences. Ericsson continues to support the telecom industry players in setting #AfricaInMotion, and with the Ericsson Automation Hub in Nigeria, we will focus on driving business outcomes for our partners in Africa as they aim to leverage digital transformation to turn complexities into opportunities while offering a greater experience and value to consumers.”
Chevron To Invest In The Offshore Wind Sector
Chevron’s venture capital arm and Moreld Ocean Wind have agreed to invest in Ocergy Inc.’s development and commercialization of floating offshore wind turbines.
The investment by Chevron Technology Ventures is it’s first in offshore wind. The size of the investments wasn’t disclosed. Floating turbines would be useful in ocean areas that are too deep for fixed turbines.
A senior analyst at Wood Mackenzie Ltd, Anthony Logan said: “To my knowledge, this is the first investment by a U.S. oil major in offshore wind”
Logan said, floating wind turbines will become important as the U.S. electrical grid increasingly depends on offshore wind power.
“If you can get into those deeper waters, chances are you can build a system of offshore wind production that isn’t vulnerable to low wind or no-wind events.”
The investment will also fund the development of an environmental monitoring buoy that will gather data and support biodiversity, Ocergy said in a news release Tuesday. The company has previously invested in onshore wind. Moreld is owned by HitecVision, a private equity investor that specializes in European renewable energy.
Chevron’s deal with Ocergy doesn’t mark a strategic pivot to renewable energy, but part of a $300 million-a-year plan to invest in early-stage technologies that may play a future role in the energy transition. The company is unwilling to erode returns by investing aggressively in an unfamiliar business where it doesn’t have a competitive advantage and sees oil and gas as its core products for years to come.
BUA Cement Donates N10m Worth Of Drugs To 7 PHCs In Sokoto
BUA Cement Company on Thursday donated drugs and other hospital consumables worth N10 million to seven Primary Healthcare Centres (PHCs) in the Wamakko Local Government Area of Sokoto State.
The company had earlier built schools, offered scholarships, distributed uniforms to pupils, trained women on business skills and supported health facilities in host communities as part of its corporate social responsibility.
Presenting the items on behalf of the company, the Director, Marketing Services, Mr Abdulganiyyu Yusuf, said the gesture was aimed at complementing the efforts of the Sokoto State Government in enhancing healthcare delivery.
The Assistant Director, Administration and Corporate Services of BUA Cement, Mr Sada Suleiman said the company was also assisting the state in the provision of potable water, electrification, rural roads, healthcare, education, women and youth empowerment.
Suleiman said the drugs were essentially for children, pregnant women and others, in recognition of the present climatic condition and peoples’ needs.
He said the assistance was expanded to new PHCs in Gidan Bailu besides PHCs in Gidan Kusu, Wajenka, Sabon Garin Alu, Arkilla, Police Mobile Barrack, and Kalambaina primary health centres.
Suleiman assured them that more community support programmes would be undertaken by the company.
According to him, the cement company will partner with the state’s Ministries of Health and Education to identify areas of need for prompt intervention.
“At the moment, we are paying scholarship for students’ schooling in various higher institutions across the country from these host communities,’’ he said.
The Executive Secretary, Sokoto State Primary Health Care Development Agency (SSPHCDA), Mr Abdullahi Romo said the intervention was strategic as it would enhance access to healthcare services and significantly reduce the burden on families.
He, therefore, warned hospital workers against misusing the items adding that a list of all items would be obtained and track distribution to needed persons in the facilities.
Romo urged parents and guardians to encourage their children and wards to attend school regularly and appealed to other corporate organisations and wealthy individuals to take a cue from the company.
Responding on behalf of the communities, the District Head of Arkilla, Alhaji Aliyu Liman, expressed appreciation for the support, which he said would impact positively on the wellbeing of the people.
Our Correspondent reports that consignment of the drugs was presented to each representative of the seven PHCs, monitored by the Director of Health, Wamakko Local Government A, Mr Sahabi Dance.
