XON closes the gap for isolated towns in Namibia
XON designs, builds, operates, and manages information and communication technology (ICT) solutions designed uniquely for customers based on partnerships with industry-leading vendors and the broadest and deepest skills base available. Two years ago, the company was approached by the largest telco operator in Namibia, a company that runs the most expansive digital telecommunication network in the country.
With a growing demand for voice, text, data and video solutions, the telecom needed to further widen their network capacity. The telecom’s biggest challenge: to overcome the distance limitation of the known 80km SFPs on optical, without using any active equipment in between. XON turned to Smartoptics for help, dramatically reducing the cost of the overall installation.
