17 Feb 2009

Network planning and optimisation consultancy Aircom International has announced that it has signed a deal to provide its suite of network planning tools to Atlantique Telecom, the West African subsidiary of UAE-based telecoms group Etisalat International which operates wireless networks in six countries across West Africa. Atlantique Telecom operates GSM/GPRS/EDGE networks under the ‘Moov’ brand in the Ivory Coast, Benin, Togo, the Central African Republic, Gabon and Niger. ‘Our aim is to always push the boundaries of the African mobile phone market by delivering a consistently high quality of service and user experience to our Moov customers,’ said Mr Mamadou Cisse, network quality and optimisation director at Atlantique Telecom. ‘In competitive trials, Aircom planning tools consistently came out on top. Our choice of Aircom for our radio frequency (RF) planning needs means that our engineers can use separate RF and transmission databases to deliver a single, optimised RF and transmission plan that is specific to each of our networks. By maximising our networks’ performance in this way, we ensure our customers get to enjoy the best possible service, wherever they are.’
