Wateen Telecom, Pakistan’s leading converged communication service provider has completed deployment of WiFi Hotspots at Government of Punjab educational institutions. These hotspots will enable students at government institutions across Punjab to gain vital access to the numerous educational resources on the internet.
Wateen Telecom has deployed 126 hotspots in 22 educational institutes using the indoor Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) with built-in WiFi equipment. While 109 hotspots are being deployed using Outdoor Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) along with best quality WiFi routers. These 235 hotspots will enable access to education wit just the click a button.
The deployment follows an earlier arrangement with the Punjab Government; whereas Wateen Telecom will provide for an e-learning portal for graduate and post-graduate students to access and gain vital educational content from. The online portal will include text books, solved papers and tips for students on preparing for examinations. In order for students to access this portal in universities and colleges, Wateen has provided the facility of WiFi Hotspots. These WiFi Hotspots are free to access for students, to help them in their education for every man, woman and child in Pakistan through leading edge technology.
With growing online access, the youth of Pakistan faces a dearth of quality education. Currently government spends on the education sector are limited. This ultimately means that through leading edge technology, Wateen Telecom is playing its part in changing the traditional way of learning it with a more convenient and a quick way of gratifying the thirst for knowledge.
Speaking on completion of the deployment phase of the project, Mr. Naeem Zamindar CEO Wateen Telecom said that, “With better online access, Wateen believes in providing students in Pakistan with opportunity to access the same information that is available to those studying at some of the leading institutes of the world such as Harvard and Cambridge. We believe in the power of the internet to bring about socio-economic improvement in the lives of all Pakistanis.”
