NuRAN Wireless Inc., a supplier of mobile and broadband wireless infrastructure solutions, and Raeanna Nigeria Limited, a telecommunication infrastructure service provider and wholesale operator in Nigeria and the African sub-region, announce their collaboration to expand mobile connectivity in Africa.
The collaboration leverages Raeanna’s extensive expertise in setting up and operating telecommunications infrastructure in rural Africa communities, and NuRAN’s proven mobile wireless solutions, resulting in best-in-class capabilities to deploy cellular sites cost-effectively and maximize return on investment.
In the announcement by MTN Group, NuRAN was mentioned as partner for MTN’s rural expansion project, whose projections are to deploy more than 5,000 sites by end of 2020 across Africa, bringing 2G, 3G, and 4G connectivity to all rural communities.
“NuRAN’s radio access solutions have helped us achieve a much faster and better return on investment, compared to using the solutions from traditional vendors. This has been achieved while still providing the high grade of service that is expected by Mobile Network Operators, both of which are key factors in operating a successful wholesale network operator business”, stated Tunji Alabi, Executive Director for Raeanna.
“Throughout the years, Raeanna has developed a strong expertise and capability in the rollout of mobile infrastructure for rural connectivity. We trust that the collaboration between our companies will result in successful at-scale deployments to connect The Next Billion”, stated Maxime Dumas, President & CEO of NuRAN Wireless.
