US-based Aviat Networks has announced an expanded managed services agreement with MTN Nigeria, the country’s largest mobile operator by subscribers. Under the deal, the microwave networking specialist will manage the flow of material into Aviat-controlled facilities; the material will be managed, marshalled and kitted in support of specific customer implementations that have been jointly planned between MTN Nigeria and Aviat Networks. ‘This is an opportunity to work more closely with our partner on planning and deploying Aviat equipment into the MTN Nigeria network,’ said Yahaya Ibrahim, senior manager core and transmission implementation, NID-Network Group, MTN Nigeria, adding: ‘This new agreement demonstrates our confidence in Aviat’s capabilities to efficiently manage our inventory. The agreement reduces our overall costs and pain points and improves visibility to better plan future inventory requirements.’ Aviat Networks currently provides MTN Nigeria with value added services including network design and planning, inventory and spares management, and product support across a broad spectrum of Aviat-supplied products.
