BTCL sponsors capacity Africa conference

Botswana Telecommunications Corporation Limited (BTCL) is co- sponsoring the Capacity Africa Conference, slated for 15th to the 16th October 2014 in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania. The gathering is one of the strategic avenues that we use to emphasize the urgent need for the BTCL Wholesale.

Under the theme “Uniting decision makers in the African Fixed-line and Mobile Wholesale World”┬á , BTCL, the market leader of converged telecommunication products, through its Wholesale wing will be presenting┬á on the topic “Assessing the Development of Cross-Border and last mile Infrastructure Network”, a subject which the General Manager┬á Wholesale, Mokgethi Nyatseng , views as favorable for Botswana. He says the┬álocation of BTCL, which is at the heart of Southern Africa with neighboring countries as Zambia, Zimbabwe, South Africa and Namibia offer it a unique advantage as a participant.

“We have interconnections and good relations with multiple service providers in the region making us a trusted partner for both provisioning of services to┬áneighboring countries and a transit partner for transit product and services” says Mokgethi. This is essentially the main reason for the gathering in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, where Telco gurus will primarily look for smart ways and means or innovative solutions and a unique opportunity to network and market┬áproducts┬áin Africa.

The BTCL Wholesale has to date successfully offered products such as Transit IPLCs, Voice interconnections, data connectivity, MPLS, Co-location, infrastructure sharing and IP Transit. The Division also provides wholesale products and services to mobile operators, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) , regional service providers and international service providers.

BTCL is taking part in the Conference, a platform which rubberstamps the company’s strategic view on the importance of, creating inter-Africa business networking to drive business development. In 2013 Nyatseng,┬áwas one of the discussion leaders at the conference on the topic “Keynote Panel Discussion: Driving Capacity Distribution to Landlocked Countries; Commercial Strategies, Technological Solutions and Government Intervention.”
