MTN, largest data network for Shell Nigeria

Leading telecommunications company in the country, MTN Nigeria, has deployed two independent 622MB data networks for Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC), which is the largest capacity ever deployed for any corporate organization in the largest nation in Africa.

ITRealms Online gathered that the two independent links provided by MTN offers high bandwidth data connectivity between Shell’s operations in Lagos and Port Harcourt; and Port Harcourt and Warri.

These, the Chief Enterprise Solutions Officer at MTN Nigeria, Mr. Babatunde Osho, noted that both links ride on MTN’s nationwide fibre optic network providing both primary connectivity and redundancy to support voice, data and video traffic from Shell’s advanced enterprise applications.
He said that reliable Internet Protocol (IP) connectivity is the platform upon which large organisations could deploy collaborative solutions that make them more productive and efficient.

According to him, the recent deployments in the oil and gas space confirmed that organisations in Nigeria are gearing up for getting the most of what the latest technology has to offer.

“With reliable IP connectivity, large multi-location organisations can collaborate better, greatly increasing the productivity of their workforce. With the largest fibre network in Nigeria and our capabilities in communication, collaboration and optimisation, MTN is uniquely positioned to be the single, trusted technology partner for leading businesses in Nigeria,” he said.

He recalled that recently, MTN deployed two DS3 (45MB) data links to two other oil and gas majors, which involved the implementation of transmission through the creeks of the Niger Delta.
