NIGERIA’S COMMERCIAL FACILITATORS DEPLOY MOBILE CELL SITES
interWAVE Communications has received and deployed a USD2.2 million third phase order for Commercial Facilitators Limited (CFL), a value-added telecom service provider in Nigeria, providing two of its Cell-On- Wheels solutions—rapid deployment trailer-based mobile cell sites integrating all the features of permanent installations. The solutions can be used in any number of applications; whether it"s filling a network gap, providing network capacity for large events, or to meet sudden needs such as providing lost communication during natural disasters.
"Our Cell-On-Wheels solution gives operators the flexibility to address unforeseen coverage and capacity situations. The flexibility of our solution allows CFL to offer a rapidly deployable cell site to any location within Nigeria," said Bill Carlin, chief operations officer of interWAVE. "As a result of Nigeria"s decentralized population, CFL required a mobile solution that could be easily deployed for semi-permanent or temporary coverage."
