The business leadership organisation, Accelerate Cape Town, partnered with AfricaCom to help produce the event's IoT and Smart Cities agenda at the 2016 event.
The IoT and Smart Cities stream was one of AfricaCom's most popular streams of the week and took an in-depth look at the role of the telco in building a smart city, infrastructure sharing and the roadmap to a smart Cape Town, amongst a whole host of other topics.
We sat down with Accelerate Cape Town's Programme Director, Juliet Prowse, to chat about the organisation's work and key priorities, enabling effective collaboration between enterprise and government, and how their partners are accelerating smart city initiatives in Cape Town.
In an effort to cement its position as the gateway between Egypt and the rest of Africa, Liquid Telecom plans significant data center and network investments in the country during the next three years.
Investments are being made that will benefit the citizens of Africa, improve economies and perhaps most importantly give the people of Africa the opportunity to play their part in the Fourth Industrial revolution.
