CELFINET exhibits VISMON at AfricaCom 2018 in Cape Town

CELFINET joins Africa’s Digital transformation with this year’s edition of AfricaCom.

One of the biggest and most influential tech events in South Africa – AfricaCom – took place last week at Cape Town International Convention Centre. This year’s edition brought together 400 exhibitors introducing 5G, AI and IOT solutions, 14.000 attendees and 450 incredible speakers from across the globe.

AfricaCom is an energetic place where Telecom operators look for inspiration and revamp Africa’s digital strategy with creative technologies. For that reason, we believed to be a great opportunity for CELFINET to introduce VISMON, our Network Management and Automation platform.

“We really wanted to be part of this initiative. One of our upcoming goals is to expand CELFINET’s presence in Africa, offering a virtualized platform that supports digital transformation and revolutionizes mobile networks. AfricaCom is the gateway.”
Nuno Ribeiro, CEO

Africa’s mobile telecom infrastructure is complex due to the diversity in its availability and capability.

Nowadays, with m-commerce and m-banking services becoming increasingly popular,  Africa’s telecom operators are investing in the spectrum of the mobile infrastructure. Especially on the 700Mhz band and migration from 3G to LTE.

With this challenge in mind, CELFINET devoted four days to introducing VISMON’s virtualized solutions to visitors at AfricaCom. Our multi-vendor and multi-technology solutions address RAN management complexity, organizing network information from several geographic areas.

Africa’s telecom operators can quickly design, audit and implement network policies. In the end, ensuring QoS while reducing costs and hours of manual work through automated processes.

Furthermore, benchmark against competitors and troubleshoot using a top-notch GIS platform that highlights which areas need improvement. VISMON provides detailed analytics and intelligence dashboards which will support better decisions and ensure an easy migration between technologies.


Next year, we plan to grow collaborations with Africa’s telecom operators and research centers. Our primary goal is to achieve optimal mobile user experience throughout the various African countries and support overall digital transformation.


We want to thank all visitors for coming to our stand.

See you next year!
