TIMOR TELECOM TEAM MEETING WITH THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF TIC TIMOR I.P.
The Technical team of Timor Telecom (TT) met with the Executive Director of TIC TIMOR I.P. (Information and Communication Technology Agency), Roberto Caetano de Sousa Vicente, to inform about the damage done to the Terrestrial Fiber Optic (TFO) cables resulting from electricity network maintenance activity performed by contractors from the East Timor Electricity (EDTL).
The TT Chief Information Officer, Ladislau Saldanha said that this is not the first occurrence. Therefore, suggested to TIC Timor I.P. to establish a good coordination mechanism with EDTL to prevent this particular issue to repeat in the future.
Ladislau also pointed out that the backup link at the Camea station has not been established pending the EDTL technical teams conducting maintenance on the weekends.
The Executive Director of TIC TIMOR IP said that he noted the concern informed by TT and expressed that he is going to a request to the Ministry of Public Works (MOP) to have a coordination meeting between ICT TIMOR, TT and MOP to address this issue.
Roberto Caetano further said that when the request is accepted, TIC Timor will send a letter to TT, to form a joint team that consists of representatives from the three institutions. The joint team will oversee the maintenance activity at every station where TIC’s infrastructure existed.# Média TIC #
