Internet Solutions (IS) Mozambique has rolled out its first comprehensive point-of-presence (PoP) network in the four main remote locations in Mozambique.

Located in the economically booming mining exploration regions of Tete, Niassa, Zambesia and Manica in the far northern part of the country, the additional MPLS PoPs further accelerate IS’s penetration into the Mozambique business market.

“Given Mozambique’s increasingly booming economy*, we are in a unique position to supply the growing need for robust corporate communications into the country,” says IS Mozambique CEO, Hermann Woithe. Employing WiMax, IS has installed a point-to-multipoint architecture for an international financial institution with branches all over the country.

“The fact that all networks are deployed and managed by our own teams certainly differentiates us from our competitors,” Woithe adds. “We give our clients insight into their network operation, supplying detailed statistics such as uptime, link utilisation, latency, jitter and packet loss all in near-realtime. IS Mozambique is the only service provider in the country offering this level of transparency.”

The network employs a combination of technologies in order to support the level of availability required for the corporate organisations seeking connectivity solutions in these growing regions.

“Redundancy and reliability are extremely important in remote locations and our sophisticated solutions are already making us an ISP of choice in the local and international business market,” Woithe says.

In the last decade Mozambique has grown at an average of 7.2% per year due to the high level of performance of the financial services, transport and communications, mining and construction sectors. In 2011, IS Mozambique was rated the best Internet service provider in the business sector in the country, following the results of a three month independent study conducted by PMR.africa.
