Cateleya to support Libtelco’s network modernisation plan
Epsilon subsidiary Cateleya is to deliver a turnkey solution for interconnection, billing, and session and application management to Liberia Telecommunication (Libtelco).
Cataleya’s Orchid One session and application manager will be used to support Libtelco’s migration from legacy TDM infrastructure to IP networking.
Phase one of the network modernisation, due to be completed in the next 12 months, is designed to provide domestic and international VoIP services to local enterprises and government, allowing international calling from fixed-line phones for the first time in Liberia.
Phase two will support the delivery of Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) to Liberia’s growing small and medium businesses (SMBs).
“We are supporting the modernisation of Liberia’s communications infrastructure with a complete solution that is accelerating the adoption of IP services. Whether it is international VoIP calling or Cloud Communications, this is a major step forward for Liberia and will fast-track growth in local businesses, start-ups, and technological innovation in West Africa,” says Andreas Hipp, CEO at Cataleya.
Libtelco is the country’s sole licensed fixed-line communications provider, serving local consumers and business as well as Liberia’s domestic MNOs.
According to Buddecomm, Liberia has over 2.4 million mobile subscribers and a mobile penetration rate of 78%.
