ZTE has announced the launch of the ZTE Uganda’s network operation centre (NOC) which will be crucial in the delivery of a superior network operation and maintenance service.
Uganda’s Minister of ICT, Frank Tumwebaze, MTN Uganda’s CEO, Wim Vanhelleputte, MTN Uganda’s CTO, Gordian Kyomukama, and other senior officials attended the official opening of the NOC while the CTIO of MTN Group, Babak Fouladi visited the NOC thereafter.
ZTE is currently working with MTN Uganda to provide its network with a full scope of managed services for its equipment from various telecommunication equipment providers. The total number of network elements will be increased from over 4000 to over 5000 by the year 2019.
This NOC is the most advanced in Uganda, and will serve the entire MTN Uganda network. The establishment and opening of the NOC will provide MTN with unrivaled performance in the local market, improve network quality, simplify network management and fortify a solid foundation of deepening and widening business exchange between China and Uganda, thus creating a new means of cooperation that is in pace with modern times.
ZTE opened its Uganda offices in 2007 and has since grown into a formidable player in the Uganda ICT sector. In 2015, MTN Uganda outsourced its technical operations and optimisation functions to ZTE.
ZTE was founded in 1985.
