Leisha De Silva Chandrasena, Chairperson, SLT, exchanging the agreement with Dhammika Perera, Chairman, BOI
Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT) signed an agreement with the Board of Investment (BOI) of Sri Lanka, providing it with a voice communication solution and becoming their total communications service provider. SLT will allocate a state-of-the-art PABX infrastructure and inter-branch communication system, with BOI enjoying the facility of seamless connectivity for communication between the head office and its 14-branch network. SLT has already upgraded the BOI head office’s existing internet leased line by providing ‘fibre to the building’ connectivity, which has allowed access to a very high bandwidth internet. Leisha De Silva Chandrasena, Chairperson, Sri Lanka Telecom, said, “We take great pleasure in providing total communications solutions to the BOI, enabling them to bring more investors to Sri Lanka and helping them to have access to a world-class communications infrastructure.” Dhammika Perera, Chairman, Board of Investment, said, “This agreement will help the BOI to further enhance our capabilities as well as achieve cost effective real-time communications, whilst increasing levels of productivity and making day-to-day operations smoother and easier.” Sri Lanka’s strategic location as the point of entry to South Asia helps SLT to play a crucial role in the unfolding of new technologies across a diverse range of regions. Thus far, SLT’s investment in the SEA-ME-WE submarine cables, Bharat Lanka submarine cable and the Dhirragu-SLT submarine cable, which is supported by satellite connectivity, has provided an unparalleled global connectivity and further enhanced Sri Lanka’s competitiveness in the global market.
