Lilongwe Offers its Population of 1 Million People Affordable Internet Access
ITASCA, Ill. March 24, 2015 – Globe Internet Limited and Tazca Connects Deploy 4G LTE-as-a-Service in Malawi’s Capital City Lilongwe. Lilongwe offers its population of 1 million people affordable Internet Access.
Ranjan J Perera, Globe Internet Limited CEO stated that “We selected Tazca Connects for our Capital City because it is the most affordable, reliable and simple to operate LTE solution in the world.” With Tazca Connects we plan to deliver new Internet of Things (IoT) services including education, healthcare, commerce and training to businesses, schools, hospitals and residents. This will stimulate economic growth by increasing access to information and rich content services,“ said Perera.
Tazca Connect’s 4G LTE service is powered by an innovative Distributed Mobile Packet Core software platform from Lemko Corporation that will allow easy, reliable and cost-effective 4G LTE connectivity throughout Lilongwe, Malawi. The new LTE service is uniquely enabled by Lemko’s Distributed Mobile Packet Core architecture which features advanced mobile capability on a software platform that sits on a server at each cell site and connects directly to the cloud. This result in substantially lower up-front capital expense, eliminates backhaul, virtualizes the EPC core, and allows for dramatically lower on-going operational expenses that supports high-growth and adoption of new IoT services.
“We are excited that Tazca Connects is now part of Globe Internet’s vision for bringing the world closer by improving access to the Internet and driving the delivery of new IoT services for Malawi’s Capital Lilongwe. This confirms that powerful software, combined with a powerful vision, can connect people anywhere on Earth with cost-effective, carrier-grade LTE services,” said Michael Sisto, Vice President of Sales, Tazca Connects.
