Mauritius Telecom is setting the pace in the region in the transition from narrowband to broadband and internet protocol (IP) services. The Company is continuously upgrading its IP-based network to offer increasingly mobile and convergent services and provide high-performance voice, data, video and multimedia services. A New Generation Network is now fully operational and currently being upgraded to include Voice over IP (VOIP) for FTTH customers.
As the provider of international bandwidth services for global connectivity, MT continually upgrades available bandwidths on the SAFE cable and invests in new cable projects to meet the increasing demand of call-centre and BPO operators and of customers connecting to bandwidth-hungry services.
MT’s international network is based on an advanced globally interconnected infrastructure linked by sub-marine fibre-optic cable systems like SAFE, LION and EASSy, as well as by satellite. In addition to providing continuous upgrades to these cable systems, the Company is also investing in other sub-marine fibre-optic cable projects such as the Europe-India Gateway (EIG) and the West Africa Cable System (WACS). The two cable landing stations at Jacotet Bay and Le Goulet and the investment in cable projects will further increase reliability, resiliency and bandwidth capacity.
