Welcome from Core2Africa CEO
A very warm welcome to the newly launched Core2Africa website, and everything that goes with it.
I am extremely proud of how far we have come since launching in June 2010. Our team has grown tremendously, along with the skills, products, services, and solutions that we offer to our many customers.
As the market becomes more competitive and the business model for telcos, mobile operators and service providers changes, there is a clear need for a different approach to how business is conducted in this exciting marketplace.
Core2Africa is well-placed and has the experience needed to work with telcos, mobile operators and service providers in order to achieve those changes, both operationally and commercially. Read this blog to fully understand how Core2Africa can assist you in becoming more adept at handling the challenges that confront the service provider market.
Stanley Freiman – Core2Africa CEO
Core2Africa is proud of being positioned as the unrivalled service provider integrator in Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands and has developed a deep understanding of the challenges facing service providers in the increasingly competitive marketplace that telcos, mobile operators and service providers find themselves in today.
As we approach the start of 2020, I am excited to announce that Core2Africa has developed a number of unique solutions which address modern-day challenges in the service provider market, and are designed to cut costs, improve ROI and deliver improved service levels.
Challenges faced by Service Providers in 2020
In order for operators to meet customer service expectations whilst at the same time maintaining a sustainable business, service providers need to achieve:
- Economies of Scale
- Provide Market-Leading Quality of Experience
- Optimise the Costs of Providing the Services
- Ensure Robust Reliability of Services
While this continues to remain highly relevant in today’s operator environment, there have been a number of challenges that have arisen, including:
- Network Performance and Dimensioning
- Visibility & Understanding of Subscriber Behaviour, Network Behaviour and Service Behaviour
- Quality of Service
- Price Compression
- Service Commoditisation
- Reduced Barriers to Entry for New Competitors
- Revenue Leakage
To counter these challenges, Core2Africa has developed five solutions focused on the service provider market, which are:
These can be further explained as follows:
Internet access services are delivered in many ways. As the environments have grown and matured, subscriber-orientated services have become more widely deployed, to the point where they provide the bulk of access to the Internet.
Subscriber services have a variety of advantages, including:
- More dynamic and can be activated based on the content of a subscriber database
- Easier to automate
- More scalable
- Less dependent on the complex management of network elements
- More cost-effective to deploy
THE CORE2AFRICA SOLUTION: Since inception in 2010, Core2Africa has offered a substantial range of products and services that support subscriber infrastructure (mobile and fixed). Read more . . .
We understand that network infrastructure is a critical part of any business. Downtime, as well as a degraded or slow service, can ruin a company’s reputation. An inefficient network can have far-reaching consequences with unanticipated repair costs. Understanding the trends, the technologies and complexities around building world-class networks are what we have built our reputation on. Building networks is a key part of our value proposition and is a significant component of our existing business. We have an established, strong skill base in this area.
THE CORE2AFRICA SOLUTION: Core2Africa has extensive experience in the deployment and optimisation of a wide variety of network infrastructures (both in function and scale). Read more . . .
As subscriber service become more and more entrenched as the dominant means for users to access the internet, the numbers of subscribers and data volumes are growing at close to exponential rates. This, in turn, creates a number of significant challenges for service providers. In order to manage or resolve these challenges, the service provider needs detailed and reliability visibility into subscriber and network behaviour.
THE CORE2AFRICA SOLUTION: Core2Africa provides a wide range of analytics solutions that cater to individual subscribers, the behaviour of the overall subscriber base, the usage patterns of services, the performance of the network infrastructure (measuring both data traffic profiles and control plane behaviour), peering analytics, and security-related analytics.

As the use of the Internet and data services has grown, the cost focus has shifted from optimising bandwidth-costs to optimising people-costs, which have become the dominant operational costs. In order for an operator to remain competitive in today’s environment, it has become necessary to achieve economies of scale and the need to simplify the environment, thereby automating repetitive tasks.
THE CORE2AFRICA SOLUTION: Core2Africa’s primary focus is on the automation of subscriber services and provides a pragmatic and practical approach to implementing automation, based on the premise that the network should be simplified prior to the implementation of automation. This makes the implementation of automation more simple, cheaper, and sustainable. Read more . . .
Protection of a telecommunication network is a consistent evaluation engine that receives information about potential threats from user devices on the network and determines the threat level to the network. Threats are then mitigated based on the determined threat level.
THE CORE2AFRICA SOLUTION: Since inception in 2010, Core2Africa has built up a solid track record in the detection and mitigation of denial of service attacks on service provider infrastructure, detection and mitigation of revenue leakage, implementing subscriber security, and large scale firewalls.
