Sterlite Tech showcases smarter network capabilities at Indo-Africa ICT Expo 2016, Kenya

Sterlite Technologies, which designs, builds and manages smarter networks for telecoms globally, is participating at the 2nd Indo-Africa ICT Summit 2016 in Nairobi, Kenya.

The expo, organised by TEPC and NASSCOM from September 1-3, 2016, enables technology convergence among Indian and African ICT companies.


Discussing opportunities in Africa, Ankit Agarwal, Director – Telecom Products, Sterlite Technologies, said, “Africa’s Telecom Industry is witnessing a surge in broadband network deployments due to push from multiple governments and Telcos to strengthen voice and data infrastructure. With mobile data traffic likely to increase 20-fold by 2020, we see growing opportunities to create smarter long lasting networks for African telecom operators and governments.”

Highlighting Sterlite Tech’s research-backed capabilities in true broadband creation, he noted, “With our high-quality optical communication offerings, African telecom operators can drive mobile broadband deeper into urban and non-urban areas. This will boost internet economy, bringing a positive change in the everyday lives of the citizens.”
