Network tools to ensure network quality in a highly competitive and growing market
18th November, 2008, Leatherhead, UK & Cape Town, South Africa – AIRCOM International, the leading independent network planning and optimisation consultancy, today announced that it has signed a deal to deliver network optimisation tools to MTN Uganda. MTN continues to deploy GSM network infrastructure across Uganda and now provides mobile coverage to over 150 cities, towns and villages across the country. MTN chose AIRCOM to ensure its customers enjoy an optimum quality of mobile service, as infrastructure continues to expand across the country.
MTN selected AIRCOM following a detailed evaluation of available network solutions. The African operator selected AIRCOM’s DATASAFE tool as the best means to manage the ongoing re-configuring and updating of radio nodes within the network to maintain the best possible network service. AIRCOM’s flexible approach to pricing was another telling factor, particularly in view of the current global financial down turn.
“As Uganda’s leading service provider, we have established unprecedented consumer popularity and brand recognition,” said Francis Kazinduki, CTO, MTN Uganda. “It is therefore critical that we make a clear commitment to our customers and deliver the strongest possible network quality of service. Our work with AIRCOM is evidence of our determination to continue providing market leading communications services to our subscribers.”
“Effective configuration management is a critical factor in the process of building and maintaining quality networks,” said Graham Kemp, Managing Director, Africa, AIRCOM International. “By deploying DATASAFE, MTN Uganda will join other subsidiaries of the MTN Group in benefiting from the seamless, automated network reconfiguration techniques which maximize network quality.”
Configuration management has always been the subject of performance manager’s headaches, due to erroneous data transcript and configuration files, which have the potential to cause outages and poor levels of service. DATASAFE meets this challenge by offering a central repository and a multi-vendor, multi-technology tool that enables operators to work within a single configuration management environment, dramatically reducing operational overheads.
