Globacom Nigeria has inked a new deal with Ceragon Networks to significantly increase its network capacity and enhance service delivery to customers.
Globacom is one of Nigeria’s leading telcos with more nearly 60 million subscribers and has significant presence in Ghana and Benin Republic.
Its deal with Ceragon, the Israel based 5G wireless solutions provider, will deepen the telco’s buildout in the countries where it is currently operating. The project will reduce fiber cut issues with Globacom deploying Ceragon’s IP-50 E-Band solution to provide metro backhauling instead of fiber.
“As part of this multimillion-dollar deal, Ceragon will be providing Globacom a customized solution that covers long-haul rural areas, high-capacity metro as well as the access network – enabling it to not only enhance its existing subscribers’ quality of experience but also to expand its reach to further grow its market share,” CEO, Ceragon Networks, Dorothy Arazi.
“Ceragon is committed to partnering with its global customers to provide reliable, exceptional experiences, and this project for Globacom is no different. We partner with our customers to deliver customized, turnkey solutions that consider and best meet their current and future needs. With the imminent rollout of 5G services in Nigeria, Globacom can rest-assure its network is 5G-ready,” added Arazi.
According to the Ceragon’s boss, “with Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) optimization in mind, this solution will offer a high capacity of 10Gbps over the air, with an upgrade path to as much as 20Gbps, as needed. This solution, as well as others provided in this large project, is not only quick to deploy but significantly reduces CAPEX and enables Globacom with fast-time-to-market.”
