Donation of Desktops for Local School in Tanzania

Tristan Linnenbank, System Engineer at Globecomm Europe, introduced Globecomm to a Dutch charity called the Tanzania Support Foundation. This foundation has been providing aid to a local village in Tanzania called Selela since 2009. The organization believes in investing in long-term solutions for small communities to help them become more self-sufficient. The Tanzania Support Foundation believes that long-term solutions should focus on education, healthcare, hygiene and clean water.

Globecomm Europe determined that they had equipment sitting on shelves which was previously used for a welfare project named “Call to Home” in Afghanistan. Even though the desktops are still in good working order, it would not be acceptable to use this equipment for any other customer projects. In total, Globecomm Europe donated 14 computers, monitors, keyboards, computer mouses and a switch.  Tristan will be donating a router and has given this project his personal time and attention in helping this foundation meet their long-term goals for the people of Selela. Tristan has cleaned and tested the desktops and arranged for all the transportation to the airport.

The foundation will use the desktops to start a new project at the secondary school in Selela; they will start teaching Information Technology.

Tanzania support has arranged for the desktops to be installed and maintained by the foundation Viafrica as they have a location in Moshi from where they can implement the project.  This involves a 3 year contract for maintenance, implementation, and they will educate the school on how to use the desktops.

Evolve Broadband Deploys Globecomm LTE Solution

Evolve Broadband Deploys Globecomm LTE SolutionEvolve Broadband, a regional carrier providing voice and data products and services throughout 13 counties in Texas, completed successful LTE trials with Globecomm last year and has now finished its initial 35% of coverage area LTE build-out. Evolve Broadband joins other rural operators in using Globecomm’s hosted LTE core, as well as the company’s unique Converged Packet Gateway (CPG) solution.

Globecomm’s hybrid 4G LTE network services provide a reliable, professionally managed LTE core, which greatly enhances both capital savings and operations savings while not requiring the carrier to hire trained core network operators. Globecomm’s CPG solution is a low-cost managed solution that keeps Internet traffic local to a carrier’s market, reducing expensive backhaul costs over point to point fiber or other terrestrial circuits, while providing efficient data access in their network.

“Globecomm is an excellent value for not only meeting the initial build out requirements, but in doing so with the same technology and capabilities as Tier One carriers,” said Lowell Feldman, the CEO of Evolve. “Our business model is predicated on having partners that deliver the services that make our solutions work at an optimal level. With the launch of our 4G LTE network, we are now in an excellent position to offer our customers the expanded capacity and advanced features that they are demanding. Once Commercially Reasonable Roaming is established with AT&T, we will be able to provide top quality nationwide cell phone services in additional to excellent regional data services we offer today.”
