Safaricom Renews Key Supplier Agreement with Aviat

Safaricom, the leading mobile operator in Kenya, awarded a new multi-year, preferred supplier agreement to Aviat Networks.


Aviat will support Safaricom in the modernization and capacity expansion of its microwave backhaul network leveraging the Eclipse radio installed base and further optimize performance using IP networking technology when the carrier begins taking delivery of Aviat's next-generation CTR microwave routers at a future date. Details of this latest customer win include:

Planned migration of current operator traffic to protected microwave rings augmented by MPLS routing capability
Support services for 60 percent of Safaricom's wireless network upgrade and expansion
"We are delighted to continue our partnership with Safaricom," says Michael Pangia, CEO and president, Aviat Networks. "We look forward to supporting the ongoing expansion of the network and range of enabled services for Safaricom, who has been a key Aviat customer for years."

"Aviat Networks has been a valued business partner to Safaricom and has worked closely with us from the time we started to build a GSM network in Kenya 13 years ago," says John Tombleson, CFO of Safaricom. "With Aviat's ability to deliver a robust and cost-effective microwave solution, it made perfect business sense to choose them as one of our microwave transmission partners."
