Ceragon Networks Ltd announced that it was selected by MUNI SA, a mobile operator in Equatorial Guinea, to modernize and expand its network to deliver 4G services covering the country’s mainland and its island capital. With this project, MUNI SA aims to achieve nationwide mobile broadband service coverage and bridge the digital divide for the people on its remote island capital. In support of this goal, Ceragon has deployed the longest known microwave backhaul link, extending over 240 Km over the Gulf of Guinea. This project is valued at USD 3.4 Million, with shipments commencing in Q1 2019. Ceragon expects this project to be completed within 2019.

MUNI SA challenged Ceragon to deliver much awaited 4G services to the islands’ over 330,000 residents, and connect the island to the mainland – a huge task considering the long distance involved. Ceragon met the challenge by successfully deploying a 4G longhaul microwave link spanning an impressive 240KM over the Gulf of Guinea, from the mainland shore to the island. Typical microwave longhaul links only span as far as 50 – 70km. The IP-20 Platform delivers reliable and durable 4G backbone capacity over sea water and challenging climates, such as those present in Africa’s tropical ocean seashore, and excels in overcoming harsh high frequency microwave signal propagation challenges in these conditions.

With Ceragon, MUNI SA is able to ensure a high quality of service 4G network that utilizes significantly less resources, such as energy consumption and real estate on towers – all of which are key when deploying a network in a resource-scarce African landscape.
