Aviat assures on local support

Head Business Development of global Internet Protocol (IP) Back-haul solution provider, Aviat Networks, Mr. Patrick Martini, has assured of total local support for its customers in Nigeria.

Martini who was in Lagos penultimate week, said that the rationale behind massive financial and technological investments in markets without the necessary logistics and support plan by some telecommunication operators has called for concern.

According to him, the global economic situation that presently exists makes it imperative that telecom operators considering their various choices in network enhancement deployments must consider the availability of adequate local logistics and support that can be offered by the competing solution providers before they make their choice of solution providers.

“Technology alone won’t get you were you need to go. To be the leader in your market, you also need the very best in logistics, support and services to actually get the full return on technology investment” he said.

Martini described support as the most important consideration before any technology upgrade, acquisition and deployment, stressing that any technology solution provider that does not have the capacity to provide the very best in logistics, support and services in the Nigerian market, does not have the development of the country’s telecommunications sector at heart.

“The length of time and the evidence of what has been achieved by any solution provider, especially within the Nigerian telecommunications sector, must also serve as an evidence of it commitment and readiness to play in Nigeria” he said.

Further, he described Aviat Networks as the ‘most strategically positioned’ solution provider for the telecom sector in Nigeria today.

Mr. Martini also defended the claim based on the fact that this global leader meets all the criteria to prove their seriousness in the local market. He explained that, “we have a long-standing presence in Nigeria, from the times when CDMA operations was the rave till now, and we are staffed by indigenous experts who understand what it takes to get things done the right way”, he concluded.

Aviat Networks, which was formerly known as Harris Stratex, is currently rated as experts in wireless advanced IP network migration, and also building the foundation for the 4G/LTE broadband future and enabling wireless transformation around the world. Nigeria currently ranks as Aviat Networks most important market.
