WaveTek has rich content to bring to education, government at all levels, and the business segments of Nigeria.”
Spann has spent 11 years Microsoft Corporation at its headquarters in Redmond, WA, USA, with three out of those years spent as the developer. He said the new firm will be offering services in the areas of application integration and IT infrastructure to include cloud and hosting services, education, bandwidth and last mile connectivity.

Others are virtualization solutions; hosting solutions; cloud services; Microsoft IT Academy, e-content and e-administration.”
For Nehita Fashe, AGM of Sales, the value proposition of the firm makes it stand it out from the pack. “WaveTek’s value proposition is to provide completely bundled solutions designed to our customer’s requirements.
