Glo, Zinox, Phase3 back WAFICT 2010

Globacom has signified its desire to back the West African Information Communications Technology (WAFICT) Congress 2010 as a Platinum sponsor, just as Zinox Technologies, Phase3 Telecom are giving support as bronze sponsor.

ITRealms Online recalls that this is the second year running that Globacom is backing WAFICT as Platinum sponsor.

With this, the high calibre speakers, delegates and guests to the Congress and its sister W.Afri.Tel Exhibition both of which are holding simultaneously from June 1 – 3, 2010 at the ultra-modern Expo Centre of the Eko Hotels and Suites, Lagos, would be treated to the splendour and grand orange green and white colours of the operator.

WAFICT Congress 2010 is organised by Africa’s foremost ICT magazine, IT & Telecom Digest, which is also the sole Nigeria agent for W.Afri.Tel. as earlier announced, the WAFICT Congress 2010 is expected to attract some of the most sophisticated line up of international speakers and participants from across the sub-region and other parts of the world.

WAFICT 2010 is being co-hosted with the London, UK-based Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation (CTO).

This year’s event, the organizers said, would further strengthened with the collaborative arrangement between IT & Telecom Digest and the Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation (CTO) and it promises to be a first of its kind three-day discussion and interactive sessions on the theme: Moving West Africa Forward: Policy and Technology Imperatives – Trends, Potentials & Challenges.

Globacom tells a story about the African dream seeing that the company joined the race in Africa’s leading telecom market two years behind the first licensees had begun operations, and determined to make the difference, it launched out with innovative and life changing products and pricing method that has since then altered the face of the telecom industry not only in Nigeria but in the entire Black race; and it continues to sustain this tempo.

And to confirm this pan Africanist vision of its founder, Globacom has since deployed its services into other West African countries and is presently in the Republic of Benin, and has commenced plans to change the face of competition in Cote d’Ivoire.

And this drive is further given impetus with the company’s launch of its Glo 1 submarine cable system which is a first in the world by a private company.

Following on the steps of Globacom are two other Nigerian leading ICT companies and pride of Africa in their own sphere – Zinox Technologies, which is the Gold sponsor and Phase 3 Telecoms as Bronze category sponsor.

Zinox Technologies Limited, Nigeria's IT identity and manufacturers of Nigeria's First Internationally Certified Branded Computers, is presently rated the largest IT group in sub-Saharan African and its computer is rated the second largest selling computer brand in Nigeria according to IDC and is the largest partner for both Intel and Microsoft in Sub Saharan Africa.

Recently, Zinox Computers launched a most robust e-Learning suite in Africa and rated number one by World e-Library with over 750,000 books, the company has been the promoter of Digital Knowledge Democracy Project across Africa, among other pioneering efforts at knowledge promotion.

Zinox recently deployed e -learning suite with 100 laptops and internet facility in each of the select 120 secondary schools in Nigeria in a major national e- project sponsored by the Universal Service Provision Fund, USPF.

On the other hand, Bronze category sponsor and leading provider of transmission and IP services Phase 3 in less than its six years in operation has proven that with a strong vision and passion, a Nigerian company can bring the West Africa sub-region under one umbrella, especially in the development of enduring ICT infrastructure.
