Leading telecommunications giant, Cameroon Telecommunications, Camtel, has reached a landmark deal with Russian group, InfiNet Wireless, one of the world’s largest privately-owned Broadband Wireless Access, BWA, development and manufacturing companies.
The Global broadband wireless access development and manufacturing company, Infinet Wireless, said it in a statement it had successfully negotiated several implementation projects within the Africa market, including with Camtel in Cameroon and another in Zimbabwe.
The deal with Camtel to modernise and expand broadband infrastructure across the country follows meetings between Infinet Chief Executive Officer, Dmitry Okorokov, and Technical Support Engineer, Ludovic Takam, of Cameroon along with the heads of companies from Egypt, Algeria, Bolivia, Nigeria, South Africa, Congo, Ethiopia and Cameroon at the Russia-Africa Economic Forum and Summit.
The Summit took place October 23 to 24 in Sochi, Russia.
According to a statement from Infinet Wireless, Camtel has agreed to create a pilot zone to modernise and expand the existing Camtel telecommunications infrastructure using Infinet equipment. Okorokov said: « Infinet has been represented in the African market for a long time, so we are therefore familiar with the specifics of doing business with our specialized clients: telecom operators and Internet providers. At the forum in Sochi we demonstrated our solutions to a completely new audience, which includes companies from various sectors of the African region’s economy ».
« Participation in this event is very important for us …. African countries are of particular interest to Infinet because the continent is one of the most promising and fast-growing markets. Key areas for us are security and building a modern telecommunications infrastructure.
Infinet is ready to offer its competencies in this area through a range of tried and tested products suitable for the African environment, » he added.
In May 2019 ITWeb Africa reported that Camtel had announced it would open up shareholding to private and public entities – and that the company owns the South Atlantic Inter Link, SAIL fibre optic cable from Kribi in Cameroon to Fortaleza in Brazil.
It also partly owns the Nigeria-Cameroon Submarine Cable System, NCSCS, which runs from Kribi to the MainOne landing station in Lagos.
