Infrastructure Requirement to address those settings
  • High quality patient data, video and images to be exchanged between different medical institutions
  • ICT (Infrastructure) to connect geographically dispersed institutions, nation wide or world wide
  • The infrastructure should support data, video and voice/audio (multimedia) services
  • Quality, secured and fast delivery medical information
  • High speed (BW) connectivity or Broadband Infrastructure required
  • Part of ETC’s Vision and Mission :broadband initiatives for socio-economic development
vision
Vision

ETC envisionsan information-based Ethiopian society where all our people have access to information infrastructure on equitable basis. ETC shall be an internationally recognized agile, strong and vibrant world-class ICT infrastructure and services provider

mission
Mission
  • Develop and maintain a modern information and communications network infrastructure capable of supporting voice, data and video services, equitably across the country and with high capacity digital connectivity to the rest of the world.
