Solomon Islands mobile network operator, Our Telekom, has selected the Altobridge lite-site as its solution of choice to bring first-time mobile connectivity to remote communities throughout the island nation.
The low-cost, solar-powered Altobridge solution will bring voice, SMS and mobile data connectivity to previously unconnected communities.
Steve Hall, Executive Director, Our Telekom, said, “Bringing mobile connectivity to hundreds of unconnected communities is core to our corporate mission.
“We chose the Altobridge lite-site because of its operational cost efficiency and its ease of deployment. The solution minimizes transmission costs and consumes the lowest amount of power we have seen within the industry, making it ideal for solar power. The solution met our key requirements.”
Mike Fitzgerald, CEO of Altobridge, said, “Our Telekom’s decision to choose the Altobridge lite-site further underpins our position as the No. 1 industry provider of low operating cost, remote community and enterprise mobile network solutions. We look forward to working closely with Our Telekom.”
