Mobeen Bhamjee, Glocall Telecoms CEO, stated that "Tazca Connects LTE offering, backed by Lemko Corps distributed LTE architecture, was selected due to the need for an efficient, cost-effective 4G LTE solution, deployable on demand, which would enable affordable, mass broadband penetration in challenging environments.  A new paradigm in commoditizing the LTE core to the network edge, was found to provide the efficiencies required to build next generation networks within the African context, with due consideration for affordability and end user adoption on a cost basis. Deploying 4G LTE with Tazca Connects will accelerate global connectivity in Somalia and provide new opportunities to stimulate socio economic growth by increasing access to information and rich content services."

Tazca Connect's service will be powered by an innovative software platform from Lemko Corporation, bringing easy, reliable, and cost-effective 4G LTE connectivity to businesses and communities in Mogadishu, Somalia. The new service in one of the world's least connected locations is uniquely enabled by the powerful software architecture, which features advanced fixed wireless broadband 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 expense, eliminates backhaul, virtualizes the core, and allows for dramatically lower on-going operational expenses.

The software, when combined with Tazca Connect's pay-as-you-grow LTE models and rapid deployments, allows Tazca and its local partners to provide the lowest per-subscriber per GB MHz POP cost in any market.

"Our partnership in Somalia demonstrates that powerful software, combined with a powerful vision, can connect people anywhere on Earth with cost-effective, carrier-grade LTE services," said Michael Sisto, Vice President of Sales, Tazca Connects. "We are pleased to illustrate that, with Tazca, the economic and social benefits of expanding Internet access can become an affordable reality in any community."

Glocall Telecoms is positioning for the next wave of 4G Broadband growth in Africa, enabling urban and rural communities with last mile broadband access solutions that utilize effective economic models tailored for the African market.
