eBario Telecentre has been remarkable and has proven an initiative that was effective in bridging the digital divide in Bario to bring development and changes to rural living. Owing to that, the DAGS grant has been awarded by the Malaysian Ministry of Science and Technology Innovation to replicate the eBario model to another 5 sites in Sarawak and Sabah, including upgrading eBario itself.
Five rural sites have been selected based on the criteria of remote rural area for the DAGS deployment. They are Long Lamai, Ba'Kelalan and Bario in Sarawak, Buayan and Pulau Larapan in Sabah. For Bario, it involved an upgrade to the existing eBario Telecentre. The rest will be brand new project for each site. Again, this is a multi-discipline project involving not only technologists, but also social scientists, educationists, and economists, working together to ensure the replication of the eBario model is successful and meeting the current needs of the respective community.
In DAGS implementation, the eBario model has been adopted with some refreshments on the technology used where the computing and network technologies have been reviewed and upgraded to further optimised the overall telecentre deployment. From the technical perspective, the computing device specifications have been refreshed to adopt more energy efficient architecture such as mini desktops and laptop computers.
