MTN says it has concluded a partnership agreement with listed ICT group, Business Connexion (BCX), to deliver Local Area Network (LAN) services and in-country communications support for enterprise customers.
This partnership will involve assuming responsibility for the day-to-day operational management of customer premises equipment.
“Our partnership with BCX will allow MTN to offer enterprise customers a full end-to-end managed network service which will be a key differentiator for MTN on the continent,” said Elia Tsouros, acting executive for the MTN Group Enterprise Business Unit.
“Customers can feel at ease that once they are on the MTN network, both local and international communications will be available, and at the quality they deserve. This will enable easier international communication for customers utilising our managed services,” Tsouros said.
It will further relieve customers from concerns about putting in their own network or bearing the operational costs related to such a network. “Our customers will enjoy the benefits of a completely outsourced network,” Tsouros said.
MTN’s partnership with BCX follows an earlier partnership with PCCW Global, to enable MTN to expand coverage of its Global MPLS VPN service to countries where it currently does not have a presence in Europe, Asia and North America.
