The company said it would, for instance, be delighted to demonstrate
its capabilities to link up educational institutions in the West
African sub-region with their peers within and outside the continent
via fibre-optic cable to facilitate research collaboration.
“We will also showcase to institutions and business organisations some
of our solutions that can significantly cut their operational
expenditure, improve efficiency, and positively impact their bottom
lines,” said Folu Aderibigbe, the company’s Enterprise Group
Commercial Coordinator.
