Multi-Links Telkom has connected the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministriesâ€™ (MFM) Prayer City along Lagos â€“ Ibadan Express Road to its telecommunication network and in the process ensuring that the sprawling city now enjoys an integrated telecommunications solution that covers voice, video and data.
The deal was consummatedÂ recentlyÂ at the formal commissioning and handover of the project to the General Overseer of the religious group, the most revered Dr. Daniel Kolawole Olukoya by the management team of Multi-Links Telkom led by its Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Thami Msimango.
For the first phase of the project, the CEO of Multi-Links Telkom stated that 100 phones have been delivered to MFM to be issued to pastors and ministers of the Mountain of Fire and Prayer Ministries (MFM). He also stated that Multi-Links Telkom was committed to the project beyond the provision of service and that going forward the company would seek initiatives that would see it being involved in social works with MFM in the true spirit of its brandâ€™s motto: Touching Lives.
The integrated telecommunications solution would enable Multi-Links Telkom to deliver to MFM dedicated 2 Mbps full duplex Internet service.
According to the project manager, Mr. Suru Avoseh, â€œit is a pivotal solution for MFM that will at all times pioneer and propel their broadcast access through IP for global communication via fibre connection and it is available in a wide range of bandwidth speeds and access methods, from Mbps to Gbps. It is a dedicated Internet service that is deployed at MFM Data centre at a guaranteed bandwidth.â€
According to Avoseh, the solution being provided by Multi-Links Telkom for the MFM Prayer CityÂ would allow for video streaming, IP Media Broadcast, global reach ability to MFMâ€™s church members, provide real time broadcasting of their messages globally, improved impact of communications and increased information availability and convenient access.
To ensure a robust offering for the customer, Avoseh noted that Multi_Links Telkom deployed two links for last mile connectivity. â€œThough MFM has requested for OFC (Optical Fibre Cable) last mile, the solution deployed presents alternative Microwave Radio link last mile connection for high availability (redundancy).
Dr D. K. Olukoya expressed delight at the partnership which he hoped would further deepen the purpose for the establishment of the infrastructure for the management of the promise of God for the people.
The General Overseer prayed for the increasing prosperity and wellbeing of Multi_Links Telkom irrespective of the current global economic distress. He prayed as well for Multi_Links Telkom to take the leadership position in the field of integrated telecommunications solution provisioning.
MFM was founded in July 1989 at the home of Dr. Daniel Kolawole Olukoya with 25 people at the first meeting. The church has since grown and it now has a membership of over 3 million worshippers. Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries is a full gospel ministry devoted to the revival of apostolic signs, Holy Ghost fireworks and the unlimited demonstration of the power of God to deliver to the uttermost.
