 THERE is growing demand for communication system services such as wireless access point, or WiFi, in Papua New Guinea, Octagon Communications sales and services general manager Jonathan Plasabas said.

He said PNG’s market for 3G access points and two-way repeater systems for security and construction companies was growing.

There is also a big demand for two-way radios, mobile radios and wireless tracking devices from logging and shipping companies, Plasabas said. 

Last Thursday, Octagon received three operating licences from the National Information and Communications technology Authority (Nicdta). 

The licences would boost internet technology (IT) in the country, with local operators also benefiting.

NICTA licencing and enforcement officer Une O’Ome praised the company on meeting the requirement to own and operate the licences.

Octagon Communications sales and services is a trading company of LBP Holdings Ltd.
