Telecom Lead Middle-East: Cybercom has bagged a $3.3
million vendor management contract with a telecom operator in West Africa.
The project will run for 21 months and is divided into two phases.
The company will be responsible of
managing a full network swap and modernization as per an agreed time
Over the years Cybercom has gained a high level of
confidence with operators in Africa and the Middle East through proven,
effective vendor management, which involves the management and coordination of
system vendors and other sub-suppliers. We regard this new order as
confirmation of that confidence,” says Ammar Adhami, business area director,
Telecom Management at Cybercom International.
Under the contract, Cybercom will look after network
planning, optimization and implementation management. The company said that the
vendor management service helps its clients to secure the best business
outcome and return on investment through network quality and time to market.
Many operators today are outsourcing business
critical network functions to their equipment vendor. Cybercom offers an
insurance to secure the success in a managed service relationship. With a
relatively low additional cost the operator gets support from us as an
independent third party with the sole interest to maximise the business KPIs
for the operator,” says Niklas Flyborg, president and CEO, Cybercom Group.
