Internet Solutions (IS) has announced that it is expanding its multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) presence in Mozambique to cover Tete, Niassa, Zambesia, and Manica.
According to IS, this is the first comprehensive point-of-presence (PoP) network rolled out by IS in the country, and will further accelerate the company’s penetration into the Mozambique business market.
“Given Mozambique’s increasingly booming economy, we are in a unique position to supply the growing need for robust corporate communications into the country,” said IS Mozambique CEO, Hermann Woithe.
“Employing WiMax, IS has installed a point-to-multipoint architecture for an international financial institution with branches all over the country.”
IS Mozambique was formed in 2009 when IS and Convergence Partners acquired a combined majority equity stake in Mozambican internet service provider (ISP), INTRA Lda.
The Mozambican economy is expected to post growth of 8.4 percent in 2013, according to a projection included in the Economic and Social Plan of the country’s 2013 State Budget.
In the last decade, Mozambique has grown at an average of 7.2 percent per year, due to the high level of performance of the financial services, transport and communications, mining and construction sectors.
