NIL, Neurones Technologies facilitate network core upgrade for CI Telecom

Telecoms

Slovenia-based NIL, together with local partner Neurones Technologies, has conducted a network core migration for Cote d’Ivoire Telecom (CIT) to prepare the telco’s infrastructure for new technologies and an enlarged user base – as well as helping to improve network reliability.

The project, which ran from September 2012 to January 2013, was implemented in two phases; in the first phase, NIL migrated part of CIT’s core from Cisco 7600 Series routers to new Cisco ASR 9000 Series routers in Abidjan, while the second phase saw NIL migrate the remainder of CI Telecom’s network core, which is located outside of the capital.
