Inveneo Update

As some of you may remember, we got involved with Inveneo when they were deployed to Haiti to help that country recover from a disastrous earthquake.

I was working a support ticket from Andris Bjornson and he sent along the following update, and I ask him if I could share it.

FYI – I’m currently in Nairobi, Kenya. Last week we installed a new 1U, -48VDC server in a local telecom provider’s Kenya datacenter. The server is running ONMS to monitor a number of projects we’re deploying in Kenya, the first of which is a project we rolled out this week in Dadaab on the Somali border. Dadaab has the dubious distinction of being the largest refugee camp in the world.

Through the network we helped deploy, NGOs delivering lifesaving aid in the camps will have much improved broadband connectivity options to improve logistical communications.

Today I trained the NOC on use of OpenNMS, and several of them commented on its ease of use. I’m looking forward to see our second major OpenNMS installation grow with the network.

Thanks for your continued support…I still am really hoping to get one of my engineers out your way for OpenNMS training. We’ll have to find some time between the numerous planned deployments.
