(Yangon, 29 September 2017) – The country’s leading telecommunication services provider MPT is upgrading existing TDM (Time Diision Multiplex) exchanges to next generation MSAN exchanges to provide better quality and innovative services to its customers.

With this target the operator plans to complete the migration of more than 1000 MSAN at the 180 exchanges nationwide by the end of March, 2018. The rollout of the advanced exchange swap machines will automatically replace the previous (5) and (6) digit numbers to the new uniform (7) digit numbers.
Mr. Masahiro Tada, Chief Technical Officer of MPT-KSGM Joint Operations said, “We are enabling our users to experience better services with the modernized MSAN Exchanges and by incorporating the latest network technology, the connectivity will be significantly boosted. It is a huge improvement from the old copper distribution frame, under which signal corrosion may be a factor, resulting in a network outages. Via the enhanced connectivity enabled by the fiber installed as part of the upgrades, we can offer higher quality and faster services for our valued customers.”
