Infinet Wireless negotiates expansion in African market at the Russia-Africa Economic Forum
Infinet Wireless, a global leader in the design and manufacture of fixed broadband wireless systems, has announced it has made a number of new landmark implementation agreements across the African market, including a project with Camtel, the leading telecom operator in Cameroon, to modernize and expand broadband infrastructure across the country.
At the Russia-Africa Economic Forum and Summit, Infinet CEO Dmitry Okorokov and Technical Support Engineer Ludovic Takam, of Cameroon, held a number of successful meetings with the heads of companies from Egypt, Algeria, Bolivia, Nigeria, South Africa, Congo, Ethiopia and Cameroon.
Following this, Camtel (Cameroon telecommunications), has agreed to create a pilot zone to modernize and expand the existing Camtel telecommunications infrastructure using Infinet equipment. A meeting with the Minister of Information Communication Technology and Courier Services of the Republic of Zimbabwe also resulted in an agreement on the implementation of joint projects.
“Infinet has been represented in the African market for a long time, so we are therefore familiar with the specifics of doing business with our specialized clients: telecom operators and Internet providers,” said Okorokov. “At the forum in Sochi we demonstrated our solutions to a completely new audience, which includes companies from various sectors of the African region’s economy.
“Participation in this event is very important for us, African countries are of particular interest to Infinet because the continent is one of the most promising and fast-growing markets. Key areas for us are security and building a modern telecommunications infrastructure. Infinet is ready to offer its competencies in this area through a range of tried and tested products suitable for the African environment,” Okorokov added.
The large-scale event, which took place on the 23-24 of October 2019 in Sochi, Russia, brought together approximately ten thousand delegates from 54 countries of the African continent, including heads of states, as well as representatives from Russian and international businesses.
Infinet’s booth was attended by crowds of exhibition visitors and presentations were conducted in Russian, English and French.
Infinet will exhibit at Stand C5D at AfricaCom 2019, Cape Town International Convention Centre, Cape Town, South Africa from Tuesday 12 to Thursday 14 November.
