Both institutions seek to create synergies
to develop solutions engineering, product design and methodology, using ICT as
a tool to connect to most Peruvians, especially in rural areas.
The agreement also aims to strengthen the initiatives
being developed by the Rural Telecommunications Group of Catholic University (PUCP)
through which it has deployed wireless networks in various parts of Cusco,
Cajamarca and Loreto and currently provides access to the Internet via the WiFi
network allowing for example to have the service of Telemedicine in border
Telefonica and the Rural
Telecommunications Group of Catholic University of Peru (PUCP) signed on Friday
13 July a cooperation agreement through which the agencies are seeking to join
forces with the aim of developing solutions based on Information and
Communication Technologies (ICTs) that allow telecommunications to be brought
to rural America.
Through this agreement, both institutions
seek to create synergies to develop engineering solutions, products, design and
methodology, using ICT as a tool to connect to most Peruvians, with special
attention to the needs of rural areas that have a lack of telecommunications services
and / or with limited access.
Both institutions are committed to develop
outreach activities and academic specialization programmes, courses, seminars,
forums and conferences to enhance participants' skills and improve their
experiences in ICT.
