Vox/Orion offering integrated services

19 Jun 2008

Following Orion Telecom’s acquisition of Namibian telecoms service provider Telecom Ericsson late last year, the company has officially changed its name to Orion Telecom Namibia, reports Networktimes.co.za. The previously privately-owned PBX company serves around a quarter of the Namibian corporate and government market. Earlier in 2007, Orion’s parent Vox Telecom bought Definity Telecom Namibia, which provides least cost routing (LCR) telephony services for large Namibian corporates and other operators. Following the buyouts, Orion now offers what it calls fully integrated telecoms solutions, with a wide range of voice and data services aimed at the business and public sector. The company has points of presence (PoPs) in Windhoek, Walvis Bay, Keetmanshoop, Otjiwarango, Tsumeb, Ondangwa and Oranjemund.
