NuRAN Wireless

Ghana | Connectivity

The problem

The inhabitants of this region in northern Ghana were previously uncovered by any mobile network. In rural areas such as this one, it is simply not economical to use traditional towers found in towns and cities, leaving rural populations unconnected and therefore unable to make use of the life-enhancing benefits that mobile coverage can provide.

The company

NuRAN Wireless provides carrier grade low CAPEX and low OPEX Mobile Broadband Infrastructure Solutions that have unsurpassed reliability, from the Artic regions of Canada to the heat of the African Jungles.

Project description

In 2020, the Connected Society Innovation Fund awarded this technology vendor with a £330,000 grant to test and evaluate their new, innovative mobile connectivity solution for unconnected rural communities in Ghana. The grant is funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO).

In partnership with Vodafone Ghana, and with support from The Ghana Investment Fund for Electronic Communications (GIFEC), NuRAN Wireless has now successfully deployed all seven mobile network sites in northern Ghana. Through innovative backhaul solutions and Open RAN, these sites provide life-enhancing connectivity to several rural communities that were were previously uncovered.
