Prof Marasinghe adds, Telekom’s new system will offer to SINU indial and other standard telephone facilities which the current system cannot offer.
“The new system will replace the existing system, which has over-lived its designed life and as such lacks required capacity to meet current and future telephone needs of the university.”
CEO Ngira pledged the company will collaborative with SINU regarding this contract.
He adds, Our Telekom is pleased to work together to help improve the ICT needs of the University at an affordable price.
