The information to be extracted from the data includes; the bandwidth utilization of the VSAT link, the various software applications in use and other relevant network traffic characterization such as the source and destination address, data volume, the protocol used etc.

It is my pleasure to announce the presence on the Internet of our E-book on “The History of Information and Communication Technology at the University of Jos” It is, the one of the few digital contributions in a growing body of documentation on ICT developments, within the Nigerian Higher Education Sector. The book can be accessed on the university website http://www.unijos.edu.ng/Partnership/CarnegieTranche2/interventions/ict/...
As we partner with you all, to strengthen ICT in the Nigerian Education Sector and bridge the digital divide, your comments on the book will be most appreciated.

This is to inform the Forum that Obafemi Awolowo University commissioned her mini assembly plant, the first in any African University, on 21st May 2006. The fund for its development was donated by the Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC). This plant is not meant to compete with industry, rather it is to complement it as well as train students on all important considerations for any industry assembly process.
It will also act as an outsourcing unit for companies who want to
outsource some of their assembly items to OAU. These may not necessarily be computers alone. We already have a proposal from a computer assembly company. We are ready to provide services to other Institutions in computer assemblage.
