MTN SA was approached by a number of its customers to provide 5G radio network planning and needed an efficient and accurate 5G planning solution to deliver on these requests.
TEOCO’s ASSET 5G planning solution ensured that’s MTN South Africa was able to deliver 5G services to its 34.5 million subscribers. This contract extension builds on TEOCO and MTN Group’s existing relationship which has seen TEOCO offer network planning solutions to MTN for over two decades.
The extension provides the operator with the full capabilities to plan a state-of-the-art 5G network and support the optimization of the planning process. By using TEOCO’s ASSET 5G planning tool, MTN SA is future-proofing the evolution of its 5G network.

“As MTN SA continues its 5G journey, it’s critical that we have the right tools to accurately predict radio network coverage. Having already experienced the benefits of TEOCO’s ASSET solution first-hand, we were confident of its capabilities for 5G and delighted to be strengthening our relationship with TEOCO to deliver the best service to our customers.” – Themba Sikampula, MTN Senior Manager, OSS and Tools.
