Burkina Faso selects Alvarion for 802.16e WiMAX deployment

Alvarion to deploy BreezeMAX base stations for the 2.5GHz frequency band in the cities of Burkina Faso

By CBR Staff Writer

Burkina Faso’s Ministry of Posts and Information Communication Technology has selected Alvarion, a provider of WiMAX and wireless broadband services, for a 802.16e WiMAX deployment.

Alvarion initially deployed a network in the capital city of Ouagadougou to connect administrative offices with advanced data and voice services over WiMAX.

As part of the modernization process in Burkina Faso, the ministry plans to connect additional cities to broadband internet starting in Bobo-Dioulasso, and to be followed later in Fada N’Gourma, Kaya, Koudougou, Ouahigouya and Ziniare.

As part of this initiative, Alvarion will deploy its BreezeMAX base stations and customer premises equipment for the 2.5GHz frequency band in the cities of Burkina Faso. In addition, Alvarion is providing full project implementation including project management, network planning, full installation, radio planning, training services and ongoing technical support.

Tzvika Friedman, president and CEO of Alvarion, said: We are proud to play a key role in enabling communications infrastructure in Burkina Faso, as part of our strategy to invest in emerging markets with full end-to-end solution responsibilities. Providing end-to-end solutions with turnkey services will enable the Ministry of Posts and Information Communication Technology (Ministry of Posts and ICT) to achieve its goals and meet the challenging demands of the government.
