Vodacom And Seacom Join Forces In African Network Venture
The pan-African service provider Seacom has joined forces with Vodacom Business Africa to launch the next chapter of both entities’ African network connectivity ventures.
Since the rollout of its business division, Seacom reported that it has substantially grown its partnership and customer base.
It noted that this latest partnership would ensure Seacom can service partner and customer demands beyond existing markets and all across Vodacom’s infrastructure footprint – a ground-breaking move given the disruption that is taking place in the market’s wide area network (WAN) space with technologies such as SD-WAN gaining momentum.
Vodacom Business Africa said that over the years, it has invested in creating network capability, supported entirely in its vision by various technological partners on the African continent.
It pointed out that this move had increased connectivity and promoted digital growth within all 47 countries in which Vodacom Business Africa operates.
According to the firm, Vodacom Business Africa has enabled its customers to connect across a variety of platforms and is now actively taking the necessary steps to further encourage the usage of that capability.
As such, Vodacom has decided to partner with international telco operators such as Seacom to deliver services on their behalf to the customers.
Guy Clarke, the Managing Director for Vodacom Business Africa, said that the most significant benefit for Vodacom’s customers is that their access would be paired with a single contract execution across many territories, supported by the cross-border customer service.
Steve Briggs, the Chief Commercial Officer for Seacom, also commented on the partnership saying that the addition of the Vodacom Business Africa network would significantly broaden the geographic reach for Seacom Business clients throughout the continent.
