Axilspot, a global vendor in enterprise wireless networking, announced the launch of its operations in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region. As part of its regional expansion plans, the company will appoint reputed distributors and strengthen its channel network by onboarding partners across the region.

Moroccan operator Inwi has made a formal complaint to the National Agency of Telecommunications Regulation (Agence Nationale de Reglementation de Telecom, ANRT) over fixed line incumbent Maroc Telecom’s (IAM’s) failure to comply with the country’s local loop unbundling (LLU) regulations, which were first introduced in December 2014, media24.com writes quoting unnamed sources. The move follows a previous ANRT ruling against the incumbent (published in October 2016), which ordered Maroc Telecom to open up its fixed line network to alternative operators willing to provide LLU services; the regulator’s move was prompted by a complaint filed by Orange Morocco (formerly known as Meditel).
