Iristel PLC has created a branch in Kenya as part of its global expansion aspirations.
As part of its efforts to expand communication solutions across the continent, the global telecommunications service provider’s Kenyan wing became the firm’s first market in Africa.
According to Iristel CEO Samer Bishay, the telco would offer the greatest wholesale services and grow its product offerings in the first few months.
“Today is an exciting day as we are pleased to bring Kenya businesses carrier grade communication solutions. We will begin with our best-in-class wholesale services and expand our product offering in the coming months,” said Bishay as quoted by Africa Tech.
The firm said it will start by providing the capability to purchase Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) trunks.
Bishay noted this can be aggregated with the telco’s on-net footprint, and Direct Inward Dialing (DIDs).
The firm offers an expansive, facilities-based local telephone number coverage and inbound voice origination service.
This allows over-the-top (OTT) and voice service providers the ability to offer innovative voice and messaging (SMS).
Iristel’s voice service uniquely offers service providers with near-ubiquitous local service reach, network scale and routing flexibility.
The company remain one of the largest and fastest-growing telecommunications firms in Canada, since its inception in 1999.
It operates facilities-based voice networks extending coast-to-coast-to-coast and operates internationally.
