The Board Chairman of Sierratel, Tom Orbalea Kargbo disclosed over the weekend that the Company would introduce a new technology called CDMA by October.
Speaking to Journalists at SLENA over the weekend about the technology, Dr Kargbo said Sierratel has thought of a vision to be modern and to exceed expectations. He described the new product to be of high quality, efficient and reliable for which they would ensure that the services are not only reliable but accessible.
He further stated that the new-Sierratel Board was determined to reactivate the institution in order to make it more efficient.
The Managing-Director of Sierratel, Alpha Sesay explained that they were starting afresh because they suffered extensively during the war. He said the service would be a first class one superior to the GSM and it would also complement the land line services.
The CDMA, he went on, has a base of 100,000 capacity as they were going to provide high speed internet to areas where tertiary institutions are located.
He explained that the CDMA is a wireless local loop where every telephone line would be physically connected to the exchange line by cables and that a wireless system would also be used by a radio and cordless phone after connection. The new Sierratel CDMA programme would be referred to as called Leoncell.
