Mauritius Telecom has had the opportunity to work with Core2Africa since 2016 on its ISP Re-Design project.  This project was a milestone project for Mauritius Telecom as it covered an audit, detailed analysis of the existing legacy ISP network architecture together with the design of new infrastructure based on network redundancy, resilience & service flexibility.  It also involves a low-level understanding of the design requirements and optimisation to satisfy Mauritius Telecom business model.

Core2Africa was very responsive to our RFP technical requirements and various requests for clarifications in order to provide Mauritius Telecom with required info to make an informed decision.  All project items were clearly included in the BoQ and options listed as per Mauritius Telecom request.  Following the successful implementation of the ISP Re-Design Project, Core2Africa has provided Mauritius Telecom with a well-structured SLA to address operational issues as well as an escalation procedure.
