The successful implementation of the citywide Internet in most major city centers
by the ministry of ICT through UNITA was a good foundational step towards the IOT (industrial revolution 4.0) age in Uganda.
The industrial revolution 4.0 (cyber physical systems) refers to the ability of all physical assets (cars, street cameras, watches, motorcycles, homes, television sets, kettles, lights, etc.) to be connected to the Internet.

This is attained through improved information access and sharing.

Safety, Comfort, Efficiency

Revenue Generation
