Social Responsibility

IPX Social Responsibility

IPX is a local Africa registered company. IPX embraces its social responsibilities with the same energy as its focus on delivering on the requests of customers, namely with a high level of professionalism and commitment. The social responsibility entails developing and enhancing the lives of rural communities through applying IPX’s expertise in the telecommunication space.

Local Content

Local content is the development of local skills, technology transfer, and use of local manpower and local business development and execution. For a more practical definition, one could say that local content is building a workforce that is skilled and building a competitive supplier base. This is achieved through capacity building, creating a skilled workforce, as well as offering products and services locally.

Gabon passed laws in 2010 to enforce these local content principals. IPX has been executing these local work force principles since 2003. IPX supplies Laptops, Test equipment and work force training programs for our employees.

IPX believes delivering and teaching ICT and Telecom connectivity creates a platform for economic growth. The relationship with the society and environment in which IPX operates is a critical factor in our ability to continue to operate effectively. It is also increasingly being used as a measurement of IPX’s overall performance in Gabon.

Training in the USA for Africa Employees

IPX has transferred key Africa Employees to the IPX Maryland HQ Offices for specialized training and work study programs in 2013 and 2014. Technology transfer for LTE and 4G wireless, fiber optic training, and advanced fiber optic splicing and testing and equipment utilization was achieved for our Africa workforce.

IPX 911 Emergency Call Center Nigeria

Starting in April 2008 – Lagos State Governor Fashola launched an IPX supplied Call Center solution called the dedicated 767 Distress Call System that would provide stress free contact with the State Police Command Center of the Rapid Response Squad. The 767 distress call system is the first of its kind in Nigeria. IPX delivered this system that would provide a dedicated interruption free line of communication with relevant security agencies to the Emergency Response Center which fields 32 million calls per year, for distress calls to any of the federal and state agencies charged with the responsibilities of crime control, disaster management, fire, traffic, accident and emergencies. It has been stated that violent crime in Lagos since 2008 has been decreased by 60%.

Ebola in Africa

The current outbreak began in the West African country of Guinea and was detected in March 2014. It quickly spread to neighboring Sierra Leone and Liberia, where it has infected thousands. Infections are currently growing at an exponential rate.

IPX has been chosen and has accepted the challenge to send IPX EXPATS to the regions to deliver, manage and install O3B VSAT and Network Technology for the United Nations Mission for Ebola Emergency Response (UNMEER). IPX sees this as a critical time to help alleviate and remove a world health threat which has killed thousands of African and Heath Aid Workers. 

Wildlife Poaching

The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) announced that a national park, once home to Africa’s largest forest elephant population, has lost a staggering 11,100 individuals due to poaching for the ivory trade.

Gabon contains over half of Africa’s forest elephants, with a population estimated at over 40,000. And across Africa, elephants are being slaughtered in record numbers. Up to 30,000 elephants a year are killed for their tusks, which now fetch about $900 a pound on the streets of Beijing or Shanghai. Elephant numbers have fallen from 1.3 million in the 1970’s to barely 400,000 now.

IPX is working towards a high technology initiative to help Africa Governments combat poaching and unlawful trespass in National parks using VSAT and Aerial Reconnaissance technologies. IPX represents some of the more advanced Unmanned Arial Vehicles (UAV’s), also known as drones. The drones, which are equipped with regular, as well as infrared cameras and thermal sensors for sensing body heat as well as heat from vehicles during the night, are flown and controlled from a specially equipped vehicle with an Auto-Deploy VSAT Communication system.

TeleMedicine

"To those peoples in the huts and villages struggling to break the bonds of mass misery, we pledge our best efforts to help them help themselves."
- John F Kennedy

IPX is installing HIPPA compliant secure fiber networks between Gabon and Houston – the link between Houston Medical Center healthcare providers and Gabonese medical technicians is the goal.

In Gabon, IPX is installing specially-configured hospital examination rooks, with instruments for examining patients. And this will allow medical-quality images transmitted real time to Houston doctors allowing full diagnosis and treatment. Conversations with the patient and onsite medical professional captured. And finally the session creates Electronic Medical Record stored in database.
