NAMIBIA: MTN Business Namibia has been awarded the contract to deliver a fully-managed multi-protocol switch labelling (MPLS) network to Standard Bank's 115 sites in Namibia, including its business branches, all agencies, as well as all the bank's ATMs.
The objective is to provide Standard Bank Namibia with a more secure, faster network that is more resilient and reliable. Implementation of the MPLS solution has begun and completion of the project is set for the end of June 2011.
Says Manfred Engling, GM of MTN Business Namibia: "We are excited about the execution of this solution for Standard Bank Namibia and look forward to the positive results that we can expect to see. Furthermore, we are committed to telecommunications expansion across Africa and certainly we take pride in the fact that Standard Bank Namibia has chosen MTN Business as their preferred partner in this regard, as this allows us to continue our expansion and commitment to offering African corporations our "360 degree" service offering."
