Parallel Wireless partners with Telesol 4G to provide 4G LTE in Ghana
Parallel Wireless, a leader in providing end-to-end open network connecting solutions - 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G – today announced a partnership with the Telesol 4G brand, the fastest LTE network in Ghana. Parallel Wireless makes deployments as easy and as cost-effective as Wi-Fi and will use its services to connect citizens and businesses in Ghana with 4G wireless services.
According to the two partners, African countries face severe constraints in the development of even the fixed-line infrastructure. However, African countries also have the opportunity to leapfrog the development of fixed-networks, into new technologies such as 4G/LTE with its massive potential for communication and data transmission that will benefit developing economies.
The competition in the telecom industry in Africa has, however, intensified, making service providers searching for innovative strategies, reduce deployment and maintenance costs, just to survive.
Commenting on the partnership, Mrs. Funmi Lamptey, Director, Telesol, said that the on-boarding of Telesol in the Broadband Wireless (BWA) space in Ghana, is like sunrise again for heavy data users across ages as well as an answer to the desire of many Ghanaians to have an indigenous company survive in the telecoms industry in Ghana. She further emphasized the choice of Parallel Wireless to be a strategic decision based on efficiency, innovation, support and cost-effectiveness.
Parallel Wireless will offer a unique low cost, low foot-print and virtualized multi-technology solution that helps to deliver coverage to citizens in Ghana. This will be done by making deployments easy and affordable to install, maintain and to upgrade to any future technology without any additional hardware.
Christoph Fitih, Sales Director, Africa, Parallel Wireless, emphasizes Telesol commitment to innovate to build capacity and expand its infrastructure to be able to serve its customers growing complex needs across various locations within Ghana and the Sub-region with the fastest 4G LTE service. He further explained that African countries need to adopt new technologies to prevent a further marginalization of Africa from the world economy and to eliminate the widening of the current digital divide between Africa and the rest of the world.
Christoph expressed how proud and committed Parallel Wireless is to its role in innovating in the Open RAN ecosystem to help eliminate the digital divide.
