Virtualized 4G Open RAN to enable fast wireless broadband to citizens and businesses

NASHUA, N.H. 31 October 2018– Parallel Wireless, Inc., a leader in providing end-to-end open network connecting solutions - 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G – today announced a partnership with the Telesol 4G brand, the fastest LTE network in Ghana. Parallel Wireless makes deployments as easy and as cost-effective as Wi-Fi and will use its services to connect citizens and businesses in Ghana with 4G wireless services.

African countries face severe constraints in the development of even the fixed-line infrastructure. However, African countries also have the opportunity to leapfrog the development of fixed-networks, into new technologies such as 4G/LTE with its massive potential for communication and data transmission that will benefit developing economies.

The competition in the telecom industry in Africa has, however, intensified, making service providers searching for innovative strategies, reduce deployment and maintenance costs, just to survive. This is a problem in and of, itself.   

The solution? A unique low cost, low foot-print and virtualized multi-technology solution that helps to deliver coverage to these areas, by making deployments easy and affordable to install, maintain and to upgrade to any future technology without any additional hardware. In other words, Parallel Wireless.

What makes the Parallel Wireless Open RAN solution unique?

  • Carrier-grade base station Converged Wireless System (CWS) connecting to any available today or tomorrow backhaul.
  • The all-in-one compact CWS maximizes data and voice coverage for superior quality of experience for Telesol 4G end users.
  • With the CWS not requiring substantial power nor cooling cabinets or servers, it makes it the most power-efficient solution on the market available today.
  • HetNet Gateway (HNG) – a 2G/3G/4G/5G Wi-Fi gateway + security gateway to configure, optimize, and automate network and to provide seamless mobility for the best subscriber experience.

Added to this, is the ease at which CWS can be installed and maintained. This enables much more cost-effective networks for places where business models are challenging and allows faster return on the network investment for mobile operators.
