UbuntuNet Alliance is pleased to introduce to its community the new networking engineer Wilson Wasswa, who started working for the Alliance from 1st April 2017 and is based in Kampala, Uganda.
Wasswa says he is excited to have joined the Alliance which he believes presents an excellent opportunity for him to deploy his professional skills.
“UbuntuNet Alliance is an internet carrier with Points of Presence (PoP)s spread out across Eastern and Southern Africa. Maintaining an excellent network performance and superb user experience in such diverse environment certainly comes with continued learning and skills development,” he said.
He added that he is also motivated by the challenge of being part of a team that ensures that hundreds of students and researchers connected to the UbuntuNet network are able to access the internet at all time.
“It is no longer news that Information all over the world has been digitised and is now accessible on the internet. Access to affordable connectivity accelerates research, education and economic and social development. Being part of the technical team for the Alliance entails that I will be part of the team responsible for making sure that our end users are able to access the internet whenever they need to, that is an exciting challenge for me,” he added.
Wasswa holds a BSc. in Telecommunications Engineering and has previously worked with MTN Uganda Limited and ZTE Uganda as an IP Network Engineer.
A Ugandan citizen, he enjoys travelling, meeting and making friends and reading.
