Ceragon Networks, an Israeli provider of 5G wireless transport solutions, announced a partnership with Globacom, a Nigerian multinational telecommunications company, to expand its network and maintain its cutting-edge technology.
In a press release, the second-largest operator in Nigeria stated that it aspires to build Africa’s largest and best telecommunications network, and that the deal with Ceragon will significantly increase network capacity and improve service delivery to customers.
“As part of this multimillion-dollar agreement, Ceragon will provide Globacom with a customized solution that covers long-haul rural areas, high-capacity metro, and the access network, allowing it to not only improve the quality of experience for its existing subscribers, but also expand its reach to further grow its market share.” “The project, which began in Q4 2021, is scheduled to be completed in the first half of 2022,” according to the release.
Ceragon Networks CEO Doron Arazi stated, “Ceragon is committed to partnering with its global customers to provide dependable, exceptional experiences, and this project for Globacom is no exception.” We collaborate with our customers to provide customized, turnkey solutions that take into account and best meet their current and future needs.
According to the release, the project will provide a solution to fiber cut issues by leveraging Ceragon’s IP-50 E-Band solution to provide metro backhauling instead of fiber, and at times as backup.
“With Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) in mind, this solution will provide a high capacity of 10Gbps over the air, with an upgrade path to as much as 20Gbps as needed.” This solution, like others provided in this large project, is not only quick to deploy, but it also significantly reduces CAPEX and allows Globacom to have a quick time to market,” it added.
