Botswana Telecommunications Corporation (BTC) has selected wireless backhaul solutions provider Ceragon Networks to upgrade its nationwide wireless backbone and the backhaul network of mobile unit beMobile. Ceragon's FibeAir solutions will enable the operator to meet its service expansion plans and support rapid subscriber growth.
The deployments will help BTC work towards completing the Botswana Telecommunications Authority's (BTA's) Rural Services Improvement and Expansion project, network deployments for which are expected to be finished by year-end.
'In order to succeed in the dense telecom market of Botswana, it was important for us to select a backhaul solution that will ensure high quality service delivery at a competitive price,' a BTC spokesperson commented, adding, 'Ceragon has proven to be a great partner, combining superb technology with excellent customer support. With a high-capacity wireless network that we can depend on, beMobile is set to meet the goal of doubling its market share in Botswana.'
