African sales boosted

Ottawa-based Optelian signs up South African-based MCT Telecommunications to sell and support its LightGAIN optical transport systems and LightPRO test and turn-up tools throughout Sub-Saharan Africa. “MCT Telecommunications is an ideal partner for us. Africa is the fastest growing telecommunications market in the world, and MCT has enormous Optelian.JPGcredibility in this market,” says Clifford Watson, managing director of Optelian’s international headquarters in London, England.
MCT says it chose Optelian’s systems because they were suited to African telcos, which have concerns with extreme temperatures, power consumption and space. “Optelian’s compact footprint, low power draw, and environmental hardening make its equipment a perfect fit for these conditions,” says Masopha Moshoeshoe, MCT’s chief financial officer. Optelian’s products are used by telcos, utilities and businesses to amplify and manage optical signals.
