Starcomms seals deal with 25 entities on VPN

Private Telecommunication Operator (PTO), Starcomms Limited has sealed a deal with 25 other corporate organisations to optimise the firm’s Virtual Private Network (VPN) known as Smart Business Service (SBS).

Commercial Head, Starcomms, Mr. Prakash Pantham, disclosed this and gave the list of some of the corporates to include Zenith International Bank Plc, Orion Technologies, Troyca Group, Stallion Group, Computer Warehouse Group and Lagos State University (LASU), among others.

He said that with the success of the service so far, Starcomms Smart Business Service is a virtual network that enables the subscribers to make calls within the network at highly reduced tariffs.

According to him, this service has been structured in such a way that it is flexible and capable of meeting the needs of small scale enterprises as well as big businesses with several branches.

He explained that the service has advantages such as convenience and low cost, emphasizing that the service could reduce the telecom spending of companies by as much as 56 per cent.

He listed other benefits of the service to comprise short code dialing, for easier use, increased organizational efficiency and dedicated account executives.

Starcomms, with over 250,000 subscribers, he said, recently launched its Global Short Messaging Service (SMS), which he noted is first of its kind by a PTO in the country.

This, he also said, was enabled by Starcomms’ Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA 2000 1X) Intelligent Network, which he explained is sophisticated technology platform that has made it possible for the company to provide a broad range of communications products and services.

As a result, Starcomms now prides itself as being the foremost total communications solutions provider company.
