Quebec, QC, Canada, September 30th, 2019 – NuRAN Wireless Inc. (“NuRAN Wireless” or the “Company”) (CSE: NUR) (OTC: NRRWF) (FSE: 1RN) announced today that it has signed a contract with Intelsat to support the installation of enhanced mobile connectivity services for the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean region. This network expansion is powered by NuRAN’s award-winning mobile infrastructure solutions specifically built to bring mobile and broadband connectivity to remote and geographically isolated regions.
Under its contract with Intelsat, NuRAN will deliver and install complete cellular sites, enabling mobile broadband service to outer islands of the Marshall Islands thanks to LiteRAN xG, NuRAN’s evolutive 2G-3G-4G multi-standard radio access network solution and NuRAN’s Nexus core network solution.
“This contract solidifies NuRAN’s leading position in providing mobile and broadband infrastructure solutions and the Company’s capability to break profitability barriers previously set by traditional vendors, enabling mobile operators to expand their network much further, and with enviable return on investment. Marshall Islands will benefit from state-of-the-art, future-proof infrastructure with capacity that will evolve with the needs of the subscribers, maximizing the operator’s return while limiting its investment,” stated Francis Létourneau, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing for NuRAN Wireless.
“When it comes to bringing connectivity to communities in rural and hard to reach areas, and doing so quickly and cost-effectively, using space-based communications networks together with cellular solutions is the ideal solution,” said Jean-Philippe Gillet, Intelsat’s Vice President and General Manager, Networks. “Together with NuRAN, Intelsat is delivering an upgrade to existing mobile coverage and expanding coverage to areas previously unconnected across the Marshall Islands. This means even more people, businesses and institutions have access to reliable connectivity in more places, including dozens of hospitals and schools, resulting in economic development as well as improvements in healthcare and education.”
