Aerojet Aviation and ICC Networking form Technology Partnership
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Aerojet Aviation and ICC Networking (ICCN) to bring to fruition a contract deal to design, develop and deploy advanced wired and wireless technologies and advanced distributed edge data systems in the industry has been signed.
The facility will be located at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA). This will be the first of its kind.
“This Centre of Excellence, the first world-class MRO operation in West Africa, will help enable Aerojet Aviation to increase its market share, attract aviation customers to the region, and sell its aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul (“MRO”) products to new customers,” a statement from the two parties said.
The partnership between the two parties will accentuate West Africa as an aviation hub for both national and international logistics and also maintain their ability to expand their services to
ICCN’s wireless system will be used in low-frequency TV Whitespace for emergency and long-distance communications, Wi-Fi for client, device, and administrative connectivity, and 5G for enhanced client environments.
Moreover, the integrated network will boost highspeed backbone connection to multi-port 40G/100G firewalls culminating in the WARP Edge Internet System (EIS), a fully distributed edge computing node system designed for data security and content delivery with a resilient architecture for harsh environments. The system has unlimited scalability to support other regions providing global services to any client.
The integration of the network will produce a high-speed connection to multi-port 40G/100G firewalls culminating in the WARP Edge Internet System (EIS), a distributed edge computing node system meant to protect the expulsion of data and content delivery with a resilient architecture for harsh environments. The system has unlimited scalability to support other regions providing global services to any client.
For ICCN, they will be backing Aerojet’s vision to deliver the highest technologically advanced facility in the industry. ICCN also provides easy accessibility to all to ensure a fully working management control of all systems whilst still providing visibility to all digital things.
Also, they provide a framework that allows for the integration of third-party systems such as an Electric Vehicle that uses hydrogen to produce off-grid electricity and sustainable energy.
Chief Executive Officer at Aerojet Aviation, Mazisi Parkes commented: “The vision for Aerojet is to be innovative and pioneering in everything we do, and our technology for the delivery of our MRO services is no different. In ICCN we have found a partner that understands our needs and gold standards of excellence to which we want our solutions delivered.”
He added that the partnership with ICCN “is an important step in our process to building a center of excellence for technology and aviation in the region. As a hub, it is imperative that we are well resourced to support our clients and provide reliable and cost-effective products and services using the best technology solutions. Aerojet and its partners will continue to make significant investments to ensure our country and continent are ready for the future.”
On his part, Keith M. Alexis, Chief Executive Officer at ICCN said “Having an MRO at KIA and being a partner in the project is a particular honor for ICC Networking,” adding, “Our partnership with Aerojet Aviation not only allows us to demonstrate the flexibility of our IP data networking solutions but also deliver an innovative solution that has a significant impact on the local and regional economies. We see this collaboration as a critical component in ICC Networking’s initiative of Bridging the Digital Divide for all markets and industries in a multi-level approach to development.”
