Atlantique Telecom chooses Aircom for EDGE planning in West Africa

EDGE services in West Africa marketed under the title Moov by Atlantique Telecom will be improved by network planning tools to be supplied by Aircom International.

Aircom International will be providing its suite of market-leading network planning tools to Atlantique Telecom, the West African subsidiary of UAE-based telecoms group Etisalat International which operates networks in six countries across West Africa. Atlantique Telecom operates EDGE mobile networks under the Moov brand in the Ivory Coast, Benin, Togo, the Central African Republic, Gabon and Niger.

Under the terms of the agreement, Atlantique Telecom will purchase Aircom's suite of planning tools, including its software products Asset, Ilsa and Connect, to improve the performance of individual networks by optimising each one's RF and transmission plans. This will deliver better coverage levels and improved capacity across each network, delivering an enhanced quality of service to Moov customers.

"We're delighted to be picked by Atlantique Telecom as its supplier of choice for RF network planning," said Bashar Zako , MD of Aircom MEI. "An optimised RF/transmission plan ensures a network performs more efficiently and more effectively. This reduces running costs while also improving coverage levels, thereby ensuring subscribers can enjoy a consistently high quality user experience, whenever they use their mobile phone."
