Blue Arcus selected for LTE rollouts in Tokelau, Marshall Islands
Blue Arcus Technologies has announced that it has been selected by Telecommunications Tokelau Corporation (Teletok) to roll out its 4G LTE/voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) solution across all three atolls of the island nation of Tokelau. Teletok is a public entity solely responsible to provide telecoms services to the people of Tokelau, a non self-governing territory of New Zealand. ‘This is our first mobile network. Our LTE deployment will cover all three atolls with Teletok providing adequate capacity from its satellite link provider Spark New Zealand,’ commented Teletok’s CEO Tealofi Enosa, adding: ‘This opportunity will enable us to improve connection between the three islands, which has a huge potential for growth, expansion, and will certainly aid in improving business efficiencies as well as achieving both Teletok’s Corporate Plan objectives and Tokelau’s National Strategic Plan 2016-2020. This LTE network will enable our locals to communicate better anytime, anywhere with family members from any point between the islands and those who resided in foreign countries.’
In a separate announcement, Blue Arcus revealed it has also been chosen by the National Telecommunications Authority (NTA), the Marshall Islands’ sole telecoms service provider, to deploy a turnkey LTE solution, as the operator looks to evolve the country’s mobile broadband infrastructure from 2G to 4G.
