Senegal partners with ISOC to develop the Internet of Things segment

(Ecofin Agency) - Senegal, represented by its ministry of communication and the telecommunications regulator signed a partnership agreement with the Internet Society (ISOC). The tripartite agreement signed on November 30, 2018, is for security of the Internet of Things (IoT) in Senegal, an indispensable pre-requisite to the development of this segment of the telecom market.  

In a statement, the three parties explain that this agreement translates “the strong will to elaborate a common strategy to develop and promote the digitalization of Senegal and its participation in the revolution of  Internet of Things, all these in optimal security conditions and process, qualities that all the parties will monitor”. A collaborative approach, aimed at identifying the challenges as well as potential and current solutions for far-reaching policy regulating the security of the Internet of Things in Senegal, is awaited within eighteen months.

This partnership for security of the Internet of Things occurs days after the telecom regulator launched a public consultation to receive the opinions and suggestions of actors of the telecom and IT market.

Closed on November 30, 2018, the public consultation will help define a practical framework for the use of Internet of Things, the networks technologies on which the service will be deployed in the country, the judicial framework to which operators will be subjected, the spectrums to be attributed and the security measures to preserve users’ personal data.
