NetVo Samoa and Tazca Connects Deploy 4G LTE-as-a-Service in the Island of Upolu in Western Samoa

Samoa to Offer its People Affordable Broadband Internet Access

NetVo Samoa, On Call Communications (OCC) and Tazca Connects Deploy 4G LTE-as-a-Service in the launch of a new advanced broadband network, Samoa's first 4G LTE provider.

James Gilbert, Chief Executive Officer of On Call Communications, the US partner in NetVo, stated that "We selected Tazca Connects because it enables fast, reliable and affordable broadband Internet access for the families and full-time residents of Samoa." With Tazca Connects 4G LTE, Upolu will no longer lack high speed Internet or access to information like rich content and micro payment services. "The Tazca Connects LTE-as-a-Service will have a profound effect on the economy, stimulating economic growth and improving the quality of life for the people of Samoa," said Gilbert.

The Tazca Connects 4G LTE service is powered by an innovative Distributed Mobile Packet Core software platform from Lemko Corporation that will allow easy, reliable and cost-effective 4G LTE connectivity throughout Upolu, Samoa. The new LTE service is uniquely enabled by Lemko's Distributed Mobile Packet Core architecture which features advanced mobile capability on a software platform that sits on a server at each cell site and connects directly to the cloud. This results in substantially lower up-front capital expenses, backhaul optimization, virtualization of the EPC core, and dramatically lower on-going operational expenses to enable high-growth and adoption of new LTE services.

"Tazca Connects is excited to partner with NetVo and OCC, recognized leaders in mobile solutions, in delivering on their vision to improve the lives of the people of Samoa by bringing affordable Internet economics to their homes and work. It is exciting to see Lemko's best practice LTE Use Cases for Smart Cities being leveraged in Samoa. Mobility and the Internet have converged, and the era of flat, distributed mobile IP networks is here," said Michael Sisto, Vice President of Sales, Tazca Connects.
