Melbourne-based telco services provider DGIT Systems has joined forces with Pretoria-headquartered system integrator Globetom, to deliver its Telflow fibre service delivery platform to the South African region.
DGIT Systems billed Telflow as a configurable fulfilment system for new digital service providers and their fibre infrastructure operator partners.
Under the strategic partnership, the firms aim to provide Telflow, to the South African Development Community area. SADC countries include Angola, Botswana, Congo, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Nambia, Seychelles, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
As part of the alliance, Globetom will represent DGIT System under its ‘intelligent brokering and fulfilment’ service area.
DGIT Systems said that fibre optic deployments in South Africa were rapidly increasing, noting that they were also set to do so in the neighbouring SADC countries. “The Telflow product provides a highly out-of-the-box solution for a FTTx operator based on latest IT technology,” it said.
“Globetom demonstrated great synergies with DGIT Systems, both in respect to skills and products”, said DGIT systems chairman and CTO Greg Tilton. “Globetom and DGIT Systems are indeed very active in global standards mainly with the TM Forum organization as both companies made significant contributions to the TM Forum’s Open API program.”
