Tripoli, 13 November 2013:
A €2.9-million contract to help improve Libya’s international broadband connectivity has been awarded by LITIC (the Libyan International . . .[restrict]Telecommunications Company) to the joint venture between Milan-based technology company Sirti and LPTIC (Libya Post, Telecommunications and Informational Technology Company). The contact is part of the project to increase Libya’s bandwidth capacity to 500 gigabits per second.
The scope of work to be undertaken will also provide automatic reroute and reconfiguration in case of faults so as to guarantee international connections.
Just over a year ago, the Sirti-LPTIC joint venture restarted work on the Next Generation Network Project, an LD 80-millon plan to create a long-distance, fibre-optic network in the country. The three-year project had been halted by the revolution. [/restrict]
