Angola’s Sepritel and Brazil’s GigaCom to supply data transmission service

13 September 2013

The Angolan company Sepritel has associated itself with Brazil’s GigaCom to install a data transmission service in Angola, targeting banking telecommunications in particular, the Angolan newspaper Economia & Finanças reported.

For the time being the company will manage the telecommunications network of the Alimenta Angola supermarket network while it awaits certification from the National Bank of Angola and from Emis – Empresa Interbancária de Serviços (interbank services company).

Sepritel president Lourenço Adão Agostinho said that the lack of system continually invoked by commercial banks resulted from current shortcomings in communication services, whereby the “partnership established with GigaCom aims to end problems in banks and companies via a high quality image, voice and data transmission solution”.

“We aim to make operational data from different bank branches or even supermarkets available 24 hours a day and thereby end lines in banks,” Agostinho stated, adding that US$13 million had been invested in GigaCom technology.

Commercial director Haron Fasoli said in turn that the Brazilian company was one of that country’s largest in data management and processing and would enable secure problem-free service. (macauhub)
