Building an ultra-broad-band wireless internet

November 19th, 2013, Published in Articles: EngineerIT

YooMee Africa, a wireless broadband operator in Cameroon, owns licenses in several countries on the African continent, and will use Alcatel-Lucent equipment when expanding as its main partner. Alcatel-Lucent will enable YooMee Africa to expand into new African markets by offering TDD LTE ultra-broadband wireless access.  YooMee – previously known as 4G Africa – provides high-speed Internet access and value added services to residences and businesses customers throughout sub-Saharan Africa. LTE is the best choice for YooMee to build wireless broadband networks as it is the latest worldwide standard to offer mobile internet services replacing technologies like WiMax. The company has targeted deploying TDD LTE in its new markets within the next six months, and the operator expects to build out in average 35 to 50 sites per capital city before deploying in remaining cities of the countries in which it operates.  Alcatel-Lucent will deploy a complete end-to-end TDD LTE solution consisting of eNBs, Wireless backhaul and the evolved packet core.
