DFA Chief Strategy Officer Reshaad Sha explained to delegates at the 2016 MyBroadband Conference how connectivity is a key ingredient to happiness.
Dark Fibre Africa was the Executive sponsor at the 2016 MyBroadband Conference, with the company’s Chief Strategy Officer Reshaad Sha giving an interesting presentation on connectivity and its benefits.
Sha spoke about man’s inherent need to be happy, and how connectivity is a key ingredient to attaining happiness.
People need to be connected to one another, and this connectivity allows us to innovate and come together, he said.
Sha said his job, and that of DFA, is to help people access efficient, effective connectivity.
He said we use Internet connectivity to help people and businesses collaborate and innovate, in the “frictionless environment” that world-class connectivity delivers.
Sha gave an example of connected sensors in the “Smart City Barcelona” project, which were used to measure traffic flow in a designated area.
By collecting the sensors’ data, the effect of traffic on productivity was measured – and traffic flows were remodeled in the city to save motorists 21% on their travel time during peaks hours.
