Ghana Investment Fund for Electronic Communications (GIFEC), a Universal Access Service Fund has selected Parallel Wireless OpenRAN to provide mobile telephony connectivity to underserved and unserved communities in Ghana.
The GIFEC is a special fund set up by the government of Ghana under the Electronic Communications Act, designed to provide telecom and ICT services to unserved, underserved and deprived groups and communities in the country.
There are still about 1,020 communities without mobile signals throughout the country. Parallel Wireless will enable a shift to open, software-based, and virtualized OpenRAN network architectures to deliver scalable 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G software-based networks.
