Bankai Group and MITSUMI Distribution create joint venture

Bankai Group and Mitsumi Distribution have formed a joint venture that will enable telcos in Africa and the Middle East to connect for termination and origination of voice services.

The initiative, known as BankaiMitsui, will leverage domestic and international gateway licenses and IP exchange hubs to enable the delivery of high-quality network infrastructure and managed IT services.

The joint venture aims to empower African business development by provisioning best-in-class infrastructure and international connectivity for its carrier services, said Bankim Brahmbhatt, president and CEO of Bankai Group.

“Designed for telecom operators, corporations, government bodies, banks, service providers and individuals, our mobile commerce, data centre, unified communication and managed network services, as well as our innovative suite of technology products, will now be widely available across major African markets thanks to Mitsumi Distribution’s extensive regional coverage and vast customer base. The BankaiMitsumi model makes the economic exchange of international carrier traffic between customers of various fixed, mobile, ISP and other service provider types in Africa possible,” said Brahmbhatt.

The two equal partner companies are represented by Bankai’s Brahmbhatt, and Jagat Shah, president and CEO of Mitsumi Distribution.
