DZS Empowers BoFiNet with Next-Gen Connectivity Solutions in Botswana

BoFiNet enhances digital infrastructure using DZS solutions, delivering high-speed internet services across Botswana’s key cities.

DZS, a global leader of access, optical and AI-driven cloud software solutions, have announced that Botswana Fibre Networks (BoFiNet), a leading wholesale provider of national and international telecommunications infrastructure in Africa and operator of the largest fibre network in the country, has deployed key solutions within the DZS Access and Subscriber Edge portfolios to deliver world-class digital connectivity and to help drive economic growth. BoFiNet is leveraging market-leading DZS Velocity Fibre-To-The-Business (FTTB) systems and DZS Helix premises solutions to execute its ongoing mission of being the communications backbone of the country by bringing multi-gigabit digital services to licensed communications service providers, governmental bodies and anchor institutions. Armed with DZS solutions, BoFinet’s customers can deliver the latest generation of fibre-enabled services to their end-users.

We needed proven, reliable, cost-effective fibre technology that would allow us to easily scale and rapidly deploy the next-generation communications services our customers and their end-users are demanding. DZS fulfilled all of these requirements in addition to offering an outstanding professional services team to help implement this important initiative. With DZS technology now a key asset within our communications network, we are well-positioned to deliver the multi-gigabit services that will enable BoFiNet to easily accommodate future growth and adapt as our customers’ communications needs evolve.

As part of the project, BoFiNet is deploying DZS solutions, leveraging 10-Gigabit symmetrical passive optical networking (XGS-PON) technology to enable fibre connected businesses and anchor institutions in the cities of Mahalapye, Kanye, Tlokweng and Molepolole. This state-of-the-art network enables BoFiNet to expand its existing communications infrastructure, allowing for the seamless integration of next-generation data, voice and video services and positions the company to be the primary source of ultra-high-speed internet bandwidth for corporate, government bodies, institutional anchors, retail users and individual business customers throughout the region.

BoFiNet is one of the leading wholesale providers in the south of Africa and for them to entrust DZS technology as the foundation of their communications network is a huge testament to the innovative, carrier-grade solutions we are bringing to market. We look forward to continuing to grow our strategic relationship with BoFiNet as they execute on their mission of delivering their customers world-class communications services and expand their offerings to additional cities and countries throughout the region.
