Liquid Telecom Kenya connects Kenya Rural Roads Authority’s 48 offices to increase rural road delivery
29 March 2018
Liquid Telecom Kenya, part of the leading pan-African telecoms group Liquid Telecom, has today announced it is connecting the Kenya Rural Roads Authority (KeRRA) headquarters to all 47 of its regional offices over the next two weeks. Access to high-speed internet will accelerate road bidding and commissioning and reduce costs for the agency, allowing it to focus more funds on road construction.
The new connection will facilitate the complete digitisation of KeRRA’s operation through an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) platform that will be accessible from all 47 regional offices and the headquarters, and enhanced communication between the branches through Voice over Internet (VoIP) services.
KeRRA’s 47 regional offices will be connected to a Wide Area Network on MPLS with a 2Mbps capacity, while the headquarters will have an aggregated 40Mbps internet link.
“Our comprehensive point of presence (PoP) network across Kenya means we can now provide networks for organisations at enormous speed. We are providing last mile connectivity through fibre links to three of KeRRA’s offices and its headquarters, while four more are located in fibre ready areas. A further 23 will be served by high-speed wireless broadband links and 13 with radio internet links,” said Francis Otieno, National Account Manager at Liquid Telecom Kenya.
