Globecomm bags wireless managed services contract in Africa

CDMA-450 switching facilities for voice and data services

By CBR Staff Writer

Globecomm Systems, a provider of satellite-based managed network offerings, has won a contract to provide wireless managed services in Freetown, Sierra Leone, Africa.

Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Under the contract, Globecomm will provide CDMA-450 switching facilities for voice and data services to wireless operator subscribers and interconnected partners in Sierra Leone.

The company said that the CDMA-450 radio network will be connected via satellite to its hosted Mobile Switch Controller (MSC) and value added services (VAS) in New York.

In addition, the network incorporates a WiMax network for additional connectivity throughout Sierra Leone and provides a 100% IP-based soft-switch architecture with a forward path to 4G/LTE.

Globecomm services senior vice president and general manager Andy Silberstein said their hosted mobile core switch continues to help wireless carriers introduce wireless technologies in developing markets without a major investment.
