Connecting the unconnected
With our technical innovations and services we can help you find sustainable and efficient ways to deliver mobile broadband to the 50% of the world’s population who are currently without internet connection.
In support of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Connect 2020 target of ensuring that more than 50% of people in the developing world have internet by 2020, we need to connect the unconnected. This means providing internet access to roughly 700 million new subscribers, equivalent to 500,000 new users each day, between now and 2020.
Upgrading from 2G to 3G/4G
To provide internet access, we need to improve the mobile user experience in underserved areas. The average download time can easily be improved by twenty times with 3G compared to 2G. This means the most straightforward way to improve consumer experience is to upgrade GSM networks and let that performance improvement enable and drive data usage and data growth.
Which sites do we upgrade?
Today, there are hundreds of thousands GSM-only sites waiting to be upgraded to 3G and 4G. Which sites shall an operator start upgrading?
With our exclusive methods and our mobile broadband coverage tool, we can help you to find which sites that can make the most difference in your particular network and location.
Cost efficient solutions
To connect the unconnected, we need to build mobile broadband coverage in a sustainable and efficient way. Therefore, we have developed new cost efficient radios, cabinets and backhaul solutions. Using proper hardware not only saves initial investments but also OPEX, for example power consumption and general maintenance need.
