Nokia will improve Tizeti’s Internet access network. The operation will allow the Internet service provider to offer its customers high quality services and to move more easily to 5G if necessary.
The Internet service provider Tizeti has decided to further strengthen its telecoms network to respond more effectively to the populations’ demand for quality Internet connectivity. The company has entrusted this task to the Finnish telecom supplier Nokia.
For Tizeti, it will deploy the Nokia AirScale Base Station TDD-LTE and Fastmile Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) gateways to provide high-end Internet and virtual private network (VPN) services to homes as well as to small and medium-sized businesses ( SME). The solution will also allow Tizeti to provide more robust broadband internet service to subscribers and the flexibility to seamlessly scale to 5G fixed wireless access when needed.
According to Kendall Ananyi, President and CEO of Tizeti, “We are committed to providing the best-in-class network experience to our subscribers. We believe that Nokia’s proven technology and expertise will help us differentiate our services based on quality. This is a crucial project for us, because it introduces LTE into our networks and allows us to bring new and innovative services to our subscribers ”.
Last July, Tizeti had already improved its network by upgrading the capacity of its basic network infrastructure to 100 Gbps. This operation – which was expected to result in additional capacity to support the company’s services as well as future upgrades – involved upgrading the current Gigabit fiber connection of its points of presence (POP) in Lagos to 10 Gbps, and relocation of its data and operations center to a world-class Tier III data center.
