How far can you take wireless technologies in an urban environment? Kenya Data Networks, has designed a fully independent shipping center for G4S, a Kenyan courier company and KDN representative Norbert gives us a tour:

Note that the shipping center is completely self-sufficient and free of any terrestrial services- from electricity to Internet provision. Solar panels on the roof of the shipping center power a low-power Inveneo computer, which connects to the G4S server via KDN’s WiMax Internet service.

Since graduating from Northwestern University with a Physics degree, I have helped build long-distance nonprofit WiFi networks as a volunteer in Nepal, managed communications-hardware deployments for the U.S. Department of State, created a high-volume image archive system for an A-list advertising photographer, and helped tell the story of landmine survivors through documentary multimedia. This multi-disciplinary career path has been my attempt to blend passions for technology, creativity, and global involvement. Outside of work, I am an avid photographer and I try to spend as much time as possible getting to the top of tall things by boot, bike, climbing harness, or ice axe.
