MTN Cote d’Ivoire’s Bold New Digital World

MTN Ghana eCentre case study

The Challenge

As the leading telecoms operator in Cote d’Ivoire, MTN constantly strives to deliver the best and most complete service to its customers.

MTN wanted to evolve from traditional telephony service provision – based on voice and SMS – to a more mature set of mobile services such as broadband Internet, mobile money, video on demand, etc. It also wanted to establish the capability to create an entirely new market in the country – providing innovative data hosting services for its Enterprise customers.

In order to achieve these ambitious goals, a major infrastructure upgrade and expansion project needed to be undertaken.

The Solution

eCentre by Flexenclosure – a complete, pre-fabricated, pre-equipped, custom designed modular solution to house and power data and telecom equipment.

Two identical 336sqm eCentres – each incorporating discrete switching centre, energy centre and hosted data centre areas – will provide MTN Cote d’Ivoire not only with the immediate capacity it needs, but also with the modern infrastructure required to manage the on-going expansion of its data traffic and to pioneer new value added and hosted data services across the country.

Delivered as a full turnkey project including all civil works, installation of the eCentre and re-location of some existing equipment to the new sites.
