Published: November 10, 2010
Alvarion has been chosen by 4G Africa to deploy the first Mobile WiMAX network in Cameroon. The deployment in the cities of Douala and Yaounde, two of Cameroons largest metropolitan areas with a total population 5 million people, will provide coverage using Alvarions end-to-end Mobile WiMAX 4Motion solution at the 2.5 GHz frequency band. The deployment is expected to provide connectivity to over 10,000 users within the first year. "We are excited to work with Alvarion on the first 4G network deployment in Cameroon and introduce a new era of communications to the residents of Douala and Yaounde," said Dov Bar-Gera, CEO of 4G Africa. "4G Africa is focused on establishing WiMAX networks in emerging Sub-Saharan countries, such as Cameroon with the overall aim to reduce the digital divide. Leveraging Alvarions technology and expertise allows us to provide a high-performance quality network, offering valuable broadband services to the residents in this market."
