The country’s leading mobile operator has entered into an agreement with CommProve which will see them deploy its new solution, CommProve NetLedge, across their network.
According to both parties, the deployment is scheduled for completion by the first half of this year and will see Safaricom's subscriber network enjoy improved quality of experience.
Thibaud Rerolle, Technical and IT Director at Safaricom, said: “Safaricom has aggressive plans for growth and as we expand further in the region we need to further enhance the network performance for our subscribers.
