Jasco is now a value-added reseller (VAR) of Nokia Networks Mobile Broadband (MBB) and wireless access solutions to the market in South Africa.
Through this, Nokia Networks will be able to leverage additional channels to market in order to take advantage of additional customer opportunities in the region.
“Our VARs undergo a rigorous and well defined selection process, which requires them to demonstrate their technical and delivery capabilities,” says Rock Missamou, Nokia Networks Middle East.
Jasco attained this duty based on their deep knowledge of the African Telco market and significant presence in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region.
What also stood out was their strong financial background, track record with valuable references and rich history of relationships with international suppliers, along with their lean organizational structure, adherence to international ISO standards and internal auditing procedures made them the ideal partner.
Nokia Networks MBB solutions provide high-quality and cost-efficient network capacity and coverage with many features that will be beneficial to customers in the Southern African market. Some of these include the ability to decrease the load on networks, increase the speed of connection, improve the responsiveness of applications and increase the battery life of devices.
“This move also enables Nokia Networks to reach new markets in a cost effective fashion, so it is a win-win situation for all parties involved,” says Eckart Zollner, head of business development at Jasco ICT.
Jasco will be receiving training on Nokia Networks products to enable them to take over the full customer relationship on behalf of Nokia Networks. This includes selling of solutions as well as value added services, customer management and customer support.
