Wana continues expansion with Alca-Lu

26 Mar 2008

Alcatel-Lucent has signed a two-year EUR24 million frame agreement with Moroccan operator Wana to expand and upgrade its fixed-wireless network, the vendor announced in a press release. Under the terms of the deal, Alca-Lu will supply its 9500 MXC high-capacity platform supporting a wide range of applications including DSL and WiMAX backhauling, its 9400 AWY system for microwave links, 9600 LSY long-distance and high-capacity transmission system, and 1350 management software suite to supervise all components. The deployment of Alca-Lu’s next-generation wireless transmission solutions is designed to enhance capacity and extend the reach of Wana’s hybrid network, enabling it to meet increasing demand for advanced broadband services throughout the country, bring high speed internet access to remote areas and broaden its customer base, which has grown to more than one million subscribers since its commercial relaunch in the residential sector in early 2007 under the Bayn trademark. Domestically-owned Wana offers CDMA2000-based fixed-wireless and limited mobility telephony as well as internet access, and plans to move into the nationwide cellular mobile telephony market this year.
