Airtel Nigeria reaffirms dedication to boosting SME growth in Nigeria with data and cloud management solutions.
The Director, Corporate Communications and CSR, Airtel Nigeria, Femi Adeniran, in his welcome remarks, expressed gratitude to the media, adding that the roundtable is a platform for Airtel to bring the media partners up to speed on the activities of Airtel Nigeria.
He stated that, “Airtel realised that the buying behavior of the private sector is different from the public sector, so this year, we created a special public sector event to showcase how their various parastatals can be upgraded to become more reliable. It was important to showcase to the public sector how their bulky data could be well managed. We had about 46 government agencies represented, to show that we were listening to the needs of the government on the digitisation agenda.”
Head of B2B Sales at Smartcash PSB, Judith Osiobe highlights Airtel Smartcash international remittance service as a catalyst for global financial inclusion.
In his presentation, Airtel Nigeria Director of Marketing, Ismail Adeshina, expounded on Airtel 5G rollout and its commitment to innovative service delivery advancement through collaborations.
“Airtel is investing heavily in 5G infrastructure, including towers, base stations, and spectrum licenses, to provide widespread 5G coverage across Nigeria. We are actively collaborating with technology partners, device manufacturers, and local businesses to explore and develop innovative 5G use cases, such as Internet of Things (IoT) applications and smart city solutions,” Adeshina said.
Adeshina added that, “Every Airtel site is a 2G, 3G and 4G site. 5G deployment will not affect any of these, especially because the deployment is prioritized based on used cases and the need.”
