It reported that growing demand for highly secure, high bandwidth network capacity from government and global enterprise customers was driving Main One to deploy its new network.
Main One CEO Funke Opeke said: “ Main One is set to deliver a state of the art IP Next Generation Network platform to accelerate the deployment of broadband in West Africa. The market is demanding for more sophisticated services and we have chosen to work with Cisco to deliver its latest and most innovative technology solutions that will help Main One develop its customer offerings and stay ahead of the game.”

Customers are expected to benefit from various value-added services enabled by IP technology, such as Virtual Private Networks (VPN), Voice over IP (VOIP), IPTV and advanced collaboration technologies.
Also, the Main One network will provide its customers the flexibility of being able to purchase bandwidth in smaller increments further enabling broadband penetration within West Africa. Integral to meeting these customer requirements will be the deployment of the Cisco® CRS-3 and ASR 9000 Series routers for enhanced capacity, high resiliency, and robust IPv6 support.
