Glo powers NNPC to automate operations nationwide
Globacom, total telecommunications services provider, has developed a solution that will enable the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to ultimately automate its operations nationwide.
The solution by Globacom, called Intelligent Wide Area Network (iWAN), will power connectivity across NNPC’s 139 locations across the country.
With the successful launch of the project in Abuja on Tuesday, the corporation’s different departments will be able to carry out their businesses with much more effectiveness in real time and also track their assets and operations all over Nigeria.
Unveiling the solution at the opening of a two-day CS-Connect programme and exhibition at the Amphitheatre at the NNPC Headquarters in Abuja, Dr. Maikanti Baru, group managing director of NNPC commended Globacom for delivering the project, and urged the corporation’s staff to utilize it to lead the corporation to greater efficiency.
“I implore all of you to make good use of the opportunities of the services of our partners to enhance your services that would lead us to greater efficiency”, he stated.
Also speaking at the unveiling, Isa Inuwa, chief operating officer, Corporate Services, NNPC, thanked Globacom for its support. He described the company as a reliable and committed partner in its CS-Connect project, which he described as the foundation for the full automation of its operations in the nearest future.
The CS-Connect programme, whose theme was “Integrate, Automate and Elevate,” availed NNPC the opportunity to exhibit to its staff from across the country “the achievements of the corporation in the areas of Policy Development/Reviews, project conception, execution and implementation,” among other things.
Inuwa said that the CS-Connect exhibition was also held as an interactive platform for all the corporation’s partners involved in the project. “It was meant for them to exhibit their products and services, as well as interact with top management of NNPC who hold different portfolios within the corporation”, he stated.
Globacom has since inception been the innovation leader in the telecoms industry, and this commitment has seen the company investing heavily in building first-class telecommunications infrastructure in the countries where it operates.
The company launched its efforts to connect Nigeria to the rest of the world with its own submarine cable in 2010, and has successfully positioned itself as the “Grandmasters of Data” with dependable and affordable data services.
