Cassava Technologies’ pan-African technology company, Liquid Telecom South Sudan, has changed its name to Liquid Intelligent Technologies South Sudan. This shows that it has become a one-stop-shop for businesses and consumers in South Sudan.
The rebranding also shows that Liquid is adding new business services like Cloud, Cyber Security, and other technologies to its existing products and connectivity services.
“This strategic rebranding to Liquid Intelligent Technologies shows that our customers and the country are now ready for future applications that run on the assets we’ve built in Africa,” says Liquid Intelligent Technologies South Sudan CEO Martin Mushambadope. “We want South Sudan to be on the cutting edge and to bring the rest of the world to South Sudan while also bringing the rest of the world to South Sudan.”
Liquid is the first company to bring terrestrial fiber connectivity to South Sudan. This connects the country to Liquid’s continent-wide network, which includes Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda, as well as the rest of East Africa. South Sudanese people, businesses, and the government are already getting cheap internet access through this network. This is helping the country move closer to meeting the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
Since its start in South Sudan in 2019, Liquid has become the biggest and most complete provider of technology services. In the last two years, the organization connected offices and homes at a rate that had never been seen before, even at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. It also brought fiber connectivity to the capital city of Juba, connecting mobile operators, carriers, enterprises, and government organizations.
As a Microsoft Gold Partner, Liquid Intelligent Technologies is redefining its Network, Cloud, and Cyber Security offerings by forming strategic partnerships with leading global players. This allows the company to bring innovative business applications, intelligent cloud services, and world-class security to the African continent.
Liquid serves South Sudan not only by providing connectivity solutions, but also as a one-stop shop for solutions that empower everyone from individual customers and SMEs to the largest Blue-Chip partners. This speeds up South Sudan’s digital transformation journey. To do this, Liquid has put a lot of money into its award-winning VSAT Broadband service, which gives reliable internet access and makes operations run smoothly even in the most remote areas. It also offers backup service to people who live in cities. For the convenience of the market, Liquid’s connectivity in South Sudan has full terrestrial redundancy.
“Everyone has a right to affordable, accessible, and quick internet. Mushambadape says that this is a key part of Liquid’s plan to invest in South Sudan using terrestrial fiber, satellite, and other wireless technologies. “We want to make sure that anyone looking to start something for the benefit of South Sudan, Africa, or the entire world has the connections they require, wherever they may be a business, a home, an entrepreneur, an incubation hub, or even a student.
“With this rebranding, Liquid will be better known and more people will know that we can give local businesses connectivity and digital solutions that will help them change how they do business and compete on a larger scale. “We are proud to work with South Sudan as it continues to change into a digital country,” he says.
