Robust network solution rolled out

By BUUMBA CHIMBULU

PARATUS Zambia has created and rolled out a robust network solution to cover the Democratic Republic of Congo through the Copperbelt.

Refineries and mines between Kitwe and Chambishi have driven demand for increased reliable network coverage in Zambia’s Copperbelt region.

The Copperbelt is vitally important to the country’s economy, according to the Paratus Zambia Country Manager, Marius van Vuuren.

He said the company was supporting business potential by expanding its fiber and microwave infrastructure in the north of the country to provide businesses with the quality connections they need.

“As we service one of the country’s largest copper producers, we have taken the initiative and are now leading the charge to deliver quality connections in the area and extending our coverage where it is most needed. 

“Our strategy of thinking big will see this route being extended to the Congo border with a link back to our fiber ring in Lusaka,” Mr Vuuren said in a statement.

He indicated that the company had now a full microwave and fiber solution in the region.

“Our clients in Chambishi are benefitting from this network which will soon be extended to Kitwe. Furthermore  we have the capability to cater for any business in the region that also needs a high quality, fast and secure network connection – with unrivalled uptime and 24/7 technical support,” he said.

Paratus Zambia is providing microwave connectivity in Mfuwe, in the eastern province.   

Having researched and visited businesses in the area, Paratus Zambia was made fully aware of the challenges facing these businesses in terms of connectivity and customer service. 

Responding to this, Mr Vuuren said: “To address these challenges, we created and rolled out a robust network solution to cover most of the area.

“Our commitment is to be always prepared to provide industry sectors with what they need to be able to run their businesses at optimum efficiency and speed.   We are driven by what our customer’s need, no matter where they are in the country.”
