Chinese telecommunications and network solutions provider ZTE has confirmed the company’s intention for 2014 in Kenya is to focus on cloud computing and LTE adoption.
The Company recently briefed media about its plans to concentrate on service to mobile network operators, government and businesses, as well as devices and terminals.
CIO East Africa this week quoted ZTE Kenya CEO Liu Sen as saying, “In 2014, we aim to strengthen our partnerships with mobile network operators by helping them improve their overall network quality. We will also be looking at the area of LTE and Cloud Computing and how this can be utilised by government for better public service delivery.”
According to the publication Sen continued to say that these objectives would require the deployment of the Company’s latest solutions, working with authorities to help speed up overall IT penetration and technical skills transfer.
Its partnership with government is a key factor in its strategy, with the intention to supply solutions to improve public service delivery in health, transportation and energy.
In August 2013 ZTE formed part of an $800 milllion mobile network deal with Ethio Telecom in the rollout of 4G and 3G connectivity services to Ethiopia.
