Mobiserve unveils regional expansion plans
Cairo, April 18, 2010
Mobiserve Holding, a leader in turnkey telecommunication infrastructure solutions and engineering services, has announced its further expansion into African markets following the success of its subsidiary Mobiserve Kenya.
Mobiserve Kenya is rapidly gaining market share in Africa, which is considered to be a key growth market for the Holding Group, said a statement from Mobiserve Holding.
Established in August 2009, Mobiserve Kenya provides the Holding Group’s full scope of turnkey telecommunications infrastructure, engineering, operation and maintenance services for the East Africa region.
In less than a year, it has made great strides in the market, having completed several high profile projects in Kenya, said its top official.
Commenting on the growth, Sameh Atalla, Mobiserve CEO said, 'Mobiserve Holding is committed to Africa’s great potential. The telecom sector is the fastest growing sector on the continent and country markets are becoming increasingly dynamic with new entrants, services, and the upgrading of current network infrastructure.'
'We are seeing an increased focus on data centric services in Kenya for example and the related investment in network infrastructure to enhance mobile data transmission,' he noted.
The subsidiary works closely with East Africa’s foremost operators Safaricom, Orange, and LEO Burundi as well as leading vendors Alcatel Lucent, Huawei, and Nokia Siemens Networks. Mobiserve Kenya is now actively participating in several tenders with Safaricom and Orange in the region.
Mobiserve Kenya has also begun to achieve several customer wins in neighboring countries, having recently been awarded new telecom infrastructure sites, switch building, as well as telecom installation projects by LEO Burundi.
“Going forward, we intend to continue to build on the success Mobiserve Kenya has achieved to date as well as expand service coverage to operators in Tanzania, Rwanda, and Zimbabwe with the goal of becoming the foremost telecom services provider throughout Africa,” Attalla added.-TradeArabia News Service
