Cell C has appointed Teraco Data Environments to fulfil the data centre requirements to support its rollout of its new R5-billion nationwide 4G network.
Teraco has two global best practice data centre facilities – one in Cape Town and the other in Johannesburg. Both of these facilities will be used by Cell C as part of its network expansion and upgrade plans for 2010 and beyond.
The appointment of Teraco follows Cell C’s announcement last week that it had signed a R2,9-billion deal with Chinese telecom provider ZTE Corporation.
Cell C will very shortly announce the appointment of the second vendor that will carry out the remaining part of the nation-wide rollout.
