|free text=}} Not always can be relied on the availability of fast and reliable network connectivity (high-bandwidth), for example in development countries, during natural disasters and/or with the use of low-power systems. However, there is still a demand for the use of communication- and information systems in these situations.

The use of semantic web technologies possibly offers an approach to meet some of the challenges of data exchange over low-bandwidth networks (e.g. SMS, LPWAN). When receivers have a certain background knowledge, senders might utilize this background knowledge to lower the amount of data that is required to be transmitted.

The aim of the research is to determine the feasibility and implications of efficient semantic web usage over low-bandwidth networks. An experiment will be carried out in order to assess the possible solutions/usages. The Kasadaka project will be used a starting point.
