NASA Lightning Distribution Map
Rwanda is located in a part of the world with high occurrences of lightning. For a small country with a modest population and limited resources, the ICT industry is at the center of its growth strategy. Damage caused by lightning on key ICT infrastructure such as telecommunication towers, which are needed for mobile phone and internet services, has become a serious concern. There is a great need for lightning protection solutions.
