Telecommunications Networks Modernization

Mauritius serves as a strategic base for the transformation

Indian technology is poised to replace Chinese Huawei and ZTE telecommunications equipment in Angola and Gambia. Additionally, Mauritius has accepted a proposal from India’s TCIL to conduct a proof of concept (PoC) on one of its islands.

India’s state-owned Telecommunications Consultants India Limited (TCIL) is gearing up to upgrade outdated telecom networks in Mauritius, Angola, and Gambia. Mauritius, considered a more developed market, has its primary operator, Mauritius Telecom, collaborating on the PoC.

TCIL views Mauritius as a potential launchpad for deploying Indian technology in other international markets.

The Indian government, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, places a strong emphasis on national technological development. This approach is significant in a scenario where Chinese companies dominate the African market, and many countries in the region, constrained by financial resources, still operate on 2G or 3G networks, lacking the advanced capabilities of 4G and 5G services.
