How IT Expert Lare Ayoola is leading the Internet of Things Revolution in Nigeria
Updated: Nov 14, 2022
With the acceleration of digital transformation in Africa, the continent is ripe for adopting the Internet of Things (IoT), and our very own Information Technology Adept, Mr. Lare Ayoola is laying the foundation with IoT Africa Network Limited, a subsidiary of Tranter IT infrastructure services Limited.
After 17 years of building a successful IT company and servicing top-tier businesses across multiple industries in Nigeria, Lare Ayoola is now democratizing IoT technology, and deploying devices and solutions that would make daily living better and easier for all.
Most recently, Mr. Lare Ayoola was a special guest on the daily Africa show on youtube where he gave a very sensitizing and eye-opening presentation on the problems that IoT solutions have come to solve. He confidently said “there is actually no sphere of life that IoT solutions do not apply to or enhance. This means that, with IoT solutions, Nigeria’s chronic Power, Water, Agricultural, oil and gas, health issues, and inadequacies in Nigeria can be set on the right track and the country would find its way on the path to prosperity.
One of the rewards of embracing the Internet of things is the fact that it touches every facet of life and industry, and it has a lifespan that we cannot see end, in the foreseeable future. So it fits the criteria.
“Our parent company, Tranter IT, has been in existence for more than 17 years. We provide IT support services, IT automation, and IT infrastructure. But we needed to add something that would be more of a mass appeal. We were wondering how we could be part of everybody’s life and part of everybody’s business.”
Take, for example, an IoT smoke sensor, which will communicate and send data to your phones or any other device that you have connected, if there is smoke or fire in your building. You get these notifications wherever you are, and even if your house is empty, if a fire starts, for whatever reason, you get alerted. In France, for example, there’s a law that every home must have a smoke detector. If such a law were to be passed in Nigeria, the proposition is that there would be a 40 million device market created just by one law, which would create hundreds of thousands of jobs and factories
“Given the nature of IoT, because of the mass appeal, because of the mass markets, and because of the longevity of the business, we knew IoT was the best industry to invest in.
