Tizeti partners with Nokia to upgrade its internet network in Nigeria

(Ecofin Agency) – Internet service provider Tizeti announced a partnership with Nokia to upgrade its telecom network in Nigeria and provide new offers to customers.

Tizeti will deploy Nokia’s AirScale Base Station TDD-LTE and Fastmile Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) gateways to deliver premium internet and Virtual Private Network (VPN) services to residences and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). The solution will also enable Tizeti to provide a more robust high-speed Internet service to subscribers and give them the flexibility to seamlessly upgrade to 5G fixed wireless access.

“We are committed to providing the best-in-class network experience to our subscribers. We are confident that Nokia’s proven technology and expertise will help us differentiate our services based on quality. This is a crucial project for us as it introduces LTE in our networks and allows us to bring new and innovative services to our subscribers,” says Kendall Ananyi, CEO of Tizeti.

In July, Tizeti improved its network by upgrading the capacity of its core network infrastructure to 100 Gbps. The upgrade – which was to provide 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 (POPs) in Lagos to 10 Gbps, and relocating its data center and operations to a world-class Tier III data center.
