Vanu deploying solar-powered sites for MTN Rwanda

20 May 2022

US-based equipment provider Vanu has launched a new partner programme in Rwanda to deploy mobile base stations in remote areas away from the electricity grid. Working with local firms HUI and Annos, Vanu says it will deploy hundreds of solar-powered base stations for the country’s largest mobile network operator (MNO), MTN Rwanda.

Andrew Beard, CEO of Vanu, stated: ‘Connectivity is a vital economic, educational and cultural engine for off-grid communities, which remain an untapped market for operators and partners. Vanu has developed both the technology and deployment model to cover these communities with a cost-effective and easily replicable process.’
