RiT's momentum in Africa has been building throughout the past year, beginning with sales to Botswana Telecommunications Corporation (BTC) and Vodafone Ghana, and followed by the signing of distribution/marketing agreements with Kenya's Adwest Communications, Mart Network Solutions/Giganet Networking Solutions and Adcare. The establishment of a permanent local presence demonstrates RiT's belief in the sales potential of this rapidly-growing region, and its commitment to become one of its significant players.
