MOBILE| March 31, 2012, 8:19 a.m.
Main One Cable Company and BusyInternet will be the WiFi sponsors of the 2012 annual Ghana Oil Summit.
Held under the auspices of the Ministry of Energy, Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC), National Petroleum Authority (NPA), and Ghana National Gas Company (GNGC), the summit will be taking place at the Accra International Conference Centre.
The three-day event will host senior government representatives, GNPC management, and Ghanaian and international industry leaders to discuss new developments and strategies in the Ghanaian oil industry, as well as issues of local content requirements and projects financing.
The Chief Executive Officer of Main One Cable, Funke Opeke, said that the event would give Main One Cable an opportunity to showcase its bouquet of services to large telecom operators, small and medium ISPs and enterprise customers, and major business concerns in the oil and gas landscape.
“We successfully launched our IP-NGN platform in August, and we are now providing services to enterprise customers in the financial services, oil and gas and hospitality space. We are also handling customer requests that are seeking co-location and managed services from our state-of-the-art data centres in Nigeria and Accra.
“Our goal is to provide these services locally, enable local switching of traffic in Africa, and improve the user experience as it relates to latency and performance.” She said that apart from providing the necessary bandwidth at the event, Main One Cable will also use the forum to network with other participants and exchange ideas on strategies for increased broadband capacity utilisation in Africa, in the telecoms, oil and non-oil markets.
