Zamtel and the National Roads Fund Agency today signed a K 1, 7 million Service Agreement for the Design, Supply, Installation and Delivery of a Wide Area Network to support efficient running and Monitoring of Toll Plazzas in six locations.

Under the agreement, Zamtel will provide connectivity technology to Toll Gates at Shimabala, Katuba, Manyumbi, Kafulafuta, Chongwe and Mumbwa Toll Gate.

Zamtel will supply networking equipment and provide connectivity requirents from the Toll Plazas to the NRFA Head Office in Lusaka.

The State-run telecommunication firm has in the past implemented a number of turnkey projects for the Government and other Government institutions as well as the Private Sector that include a number of Financial Institutions, among them, Barclays Bank Zambia, Zambia National Building Society, Indo Zambia Bank, Standard Chartered Bank, Stanbic Bank, Zambia National Commercial Bank, Bank of Zambia and the Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA).

Other notable projects implemented by Zamtel includes Government Widen Area Network (GWAN) where all Ministries and Agencies in Lusaka are connected. This project is aimed at supporting the Government’s vision of delivering a Smart Zambia.

As the leading provider of private, dedicated data circuits and other data services in Zambia, Zamtel has massive capacity to provide several banking institutions in Zambia with nationwide MPLS services using fibre access for premium services, copper access for standard services and wireless access for low budget requirements.

Zamtel MPLS offers several technological benefits including national backhaul connectivity for their disaster recovery network.

      Mwanakatwe was given the sack…good riddance.
      Zesco still has an Acting CEO …why they dont employ from outside is just shocking. Maybe they let you Act to see if you are not a whistleblower.

    That is why selling of ZAMTEL by the MMD government was poor decision. Their are somethings that need not to be sold! Like your wife!

    BA ZAMTEL YOU HAVE NEVER MADE A MARK TO ZAMBIANS OR EVEN THE WORLD EVER SINCE YOUR LIFE WHEN YOU WERE POSTS AND TELECOMMUNICATIOS. THERE USED TO BE AN ENDLESS QUEUE FOR LAND PHONE CONNECTION EVER SINCE YOUR LIFE STARTED. THIS WAS DUE TO SHORTAGE OF IMPORTED TELEPHONE SETS (HARDWARE). THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN THE TIME YOU WERE GOING TO MAKE A NAME IN ZAMBIA BY USING YOUR ENGINEER TO DESIGN AND PRODUCE A LANDPHONE HARDWARE. AND THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN THE TIME YOU WERE GOING TO MAKE BILLIONS OF POUNDS THROUGH SELLS AND INSTALLATION OF THE HARDWARE. MOST TELECOMS COMPANIES COMPANIES INCLUDING BT HAVE DESIGNED AND PRODUCED TELECOM GADGETS AND MORE. HWAWEI WHICH HAS TESTED TO PERFECT ITS MOBILE PHONE ON THE AFRICAN GROUND IS NOW A FORCE TO RECKON WITH. IT IS NOW COMPETING WITH SAMSUNG, APLE AND OTHER…

    …IT IS NOW COMPETING WITH SAMSUNG, APLE AND OTHER BIG TECHNOLOGY COMPANIES. SO, WHEN ARE GOING TO PIONEER TO GIVE US KA LAMYA, YOURSELVES? OR ARE YOU JUST GOING TO BE SELLING YOUR FRIEND PRODUCTS? ZAMTEL, USE YOUR ELECTRONICS ENGINEERS IN YOUR COMPANY TO GANG UP WITH SOFTWARE ENGINEERS AT ZICTA TO DESIGN AND PRODUCE A MOBILE PHONE WHILE ZAMBIA AND AFRICA REMAINS A SUITABLE GROUND FOR TEST THE PIONEERED GADGET.
