Somcable, a major communications service provider in East Africa, has officially gone live with 4G LTE in Somaliland. Somcable has deployed the LTE-Advanced network alongside a fiber optic network (GPON), which will enable Somcable to offer high-speed, fixed and mobile broadband services to commercial and residential customers. The operator partnered with Airspan and Alepo for pre-integrated end-to-end 4G LTE solution for the launch.
Somcable deployed Airspan's 4G LTE RAN and Alepo's policy control solution to enable network monetization immediately upon launch. Alepo has also provided its convergent online charging and billing platform (Alepo OCS, Alepo Service Enabler) to support flexible data plans for both LTE and fiber services.
Abdourahman Mohamed, CEO of Somcable
A combined LTE-Advanced solution from Alepo and Airspan gives us the foundation we need to expand our services into new mobile broadband markets and technologies in ways that connect and empower our region.
Dan Stern, Vice President of Sales at Alepo
Our platform is perfectly suited to Somcable’s rapidly growing and diversifying network.
