Telecoms firm LIME has announced that it will be leveraging its submarine fibre-optic network and far-reaching international partnerships to offer its business customers increased connectivity to, and benefits for, their offices across the globe.

The disclosure was made by LIME Head of ICT Whitney Fennell, during the bimonthly sitting of the Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica's President's Club Forum on July 22 at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel in Kingston.

"LIME Global Connect is the newest addition to our data services portfolio and facilitates the simultaneous transmission of data, voice and video applications, ideally suited for regional and multinational businesses," Fennell highlighted.

"Cost saving and seamless communications are among the numerous benefit to our customers as this solution will provide centralised management of popular business ICT applications like SAP or Oracle, allow functionality of private branch exchange platforms to include desktop video conferencing and instant messaging, while also managing wide area network infrastructure," he explained.

According to Fennell, LIME boasts the region's largest Internet Protocol and Multiprotocol Label Switching backbone that spans 13 Caribbean islands, while also being the leading carrier of global Internet Protocol traffic. This means reliable data connectivity for businesses.

Proven expertise

"We have proven expertise in the creation and maintenance of secure, reliable networks that are built for high performance." he added.

In closing, Fennell said as Jamaican businesses prepare to benefit from the global logistics hub, LIME was also preparing by strengthening capacity to provide cutting-edge and reliable ICT solutions that can enhance operations and improve efficiency within those establishments.

Also on July 22, the company hosted an International Capacity seminar in Montego Bay to give operators in the industries of shipping, logistics and call-centre management a first-hand look at the technology. A follow-up seminar was hosted on Thursday, July 24 at The Knutsford Court Hotel in St Andrew.
