Nigeria’s telecommunication giant, Globacom, has upgraded its network for calls and data services.
The grandmasters of data announced that it recently concluded a massive and comprehensive upgrade of its architecture across the nation to optimize its efficiency and radically improve the experience of subscribers on the network.
Globacom in a statement said it had built hundreds of new transmitting sites across Nigeria to complement existing ones and massively improve the telco’s signals. This is intended to give more Nigerians access to relish Globacom’s very reliable 2G, 3G and 4G services.
The company added that it had swapped old parts with brand new state-of-the-art components, provided new power supply equipment in all transmitting sites, while fiber relocation had been completed resulting in higher fiber route and network availability.
“Transmission capacity has been increased with pure IP (Internet Protocol) backhaul in several states across Nigeria. The data core network interface ports have been upgraded from 40 GB to 100GB thereby doubling the network handling capacity.”
Globacom observed that it was customary for its in-house personnel to carry out periodic upgrade on the network to keep it in optimum shape for top notch service and provide employment opportunities for young Nigerian graduates to be gainfully employed.
