NuRAN continues its expansion strategy in Africa. The company aims to have 10,000 telecoms sites under contract on the continent in the coming years. It recently launched the process of obtaining a license in Madagascar.
Canadian telecoms infrastructure provider NuRAN Wireless announced on Tuesday October 17 that it had obtained a Category 1 license in Cameroon. The resource will enable it to build and operate a shared passive infrastructure for the country’s electronic communications networks.
The acquisition of this license comes as NuRAN Wireless has an ongoing contract with local telecoms company Orange Cameroon for the deployment of 122 telecoms sites under the Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) business model. The company will not only be able to complete this order, but also better position itself to win contracts with other telecom service providers, as they seek to expand their networks to meet the growing demand for high-speed connectivity in the country. .
The initiative can also be part of NuRAN Wireless’s expansion strategy in Africa. The company announced last September that it had initiated procedures with the Technology Regulatory Authority (ARTEC) of Madagascar to obtain an operating license in the country .
Furthermore, NuRAN aims to have 10,000 telecoms sites under contract in Africa over the coming years. At last count, it had 4,642 telecoms sites under contract in Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Sudan, South Sudan, Namibia, Ivory Coast and Madagascar.
