By Amy Turner - Com Series Staff Writer, KNect365 Here is the full interview with Orange Kenya's end-to-end engineer, Ibrahim Epamba.
Speaking at this year's East Africa Com, Ibrahim sat down with the Com Series team to talk about his role at Orange, what led him to a career in telecommunications engineering and some of the most interesting projects he's worked on, to date.
We discussed some of the key challenges facing tech and telco growth in the region and some of the preferred LTE deployment models in the region.
He also let us in on what he believes could be the next big thing on the horizon for East African telcos and when we're likely to see the roll-out of 5G on the continent.
In an effort to cement its position as the gateway between Egypt and the rest of Africa, Liquid Telecom plans significant data center and network investments in the country during the next three years.
Investments are being made that will benefit the citizens of Africa, improve economies and perhaps most importantly give the people of Africa the opportunity to play their part in the Fourth Industrial revolution.
