MTN Cameroon selects wireless backhaul solution

18 Jul 2006

MTN Cameroon has selected Cambridge Broadband’s VectaStar wireless transmission solution to provide backhaul services for its wireless GSM network in Cameroon. Commercial operation will commence in two of the country’s main cities, Douala and Youande, using the licensed 10.5GHz spectrum band. These towns will be covered by four fully redundant VectaStar base stations, which will consolidate traffic from the VectaStar subscriber units located at MTN’s cellular base stations. MTN Cameroon’s VectaStar network will be expanded rapidly to provide coverage in additional geographic territories, as well as being used to provide broadband access services for business customers.
