Tarantula showcases Site Management Platform at TowerXchange Meetup Africa 2013

Singapore – June 18, 2013 - Tarantula is pleased to announce sponsorship of TowerXchange Meetup Africa, 2013 to be held on October 1 and 2 at Emperor’s Palace, Johannesburg, South Africa. The two-day executive event is organised by the TowerXchange community, bringing together two hundred directors, vice presidents and C-level officials from the African tower industry, mobile network operators, towercos, investors, advisors, and managed service personnel.

The TowerXchange Meetup is an event that is completely dedicated to telecom passive infrastructure. The high-profile event will feature round-table discussions on emerging business models, strategies, opportunities, infrastructure sharing needs, and critical issues in the African tower industry.

During the event, Tarantula will be showcasing the newly launched and enhanced version of its Site Management Platform ( the world’s leading site and tower lifecycle management platform. The platform is used by leading telecom operators and tower companies globally, for end-to-end management of active and passive telecom infrastructure.

Africa is taking the lead in a global mobile revolution, providing telcos with a promising opportunity to grow with this sector. However, high competition, high infrastructure cost and overheads are encouraging telcos to follow the sharing model. At the same time, telcos have to overcome critical issues in Africa such as extreme climatic conditions, fuel theft, inventory maintenance, and remote terrains which are difficult to access.

The Tarantula Site Management Platform addresses these key challenges with a suite of plug and play web applications that streamline tower lifecycle processes. The platform provides immense operational efficiencies as the centralised source of information on telecom assets with comprehensive process management and reporting capabilities.
