Orange, Vanu partner to provide connectivity in rural areas

Nov 14, 2022

11 November, 2022 at 1:58 PM Posted by: Shriya Raban Orange and Vanu will deploy a model that will allow for a ‘win-win’ partnering for both companies by sharing mutual opportunities. They will be using the latest mobile technology to accelerate the development of digital projects in healthcare, agriculture, education and financial services, among others. This will help to improve the overall Orange customer experience, and Vanu, with its expertise will facilitate the rollout of sites in uncovered areas of Cote d’Ivoire, Burkina Faso and Liberia. The project will begin with 1,070 sites, of which 700 will be in Cote d’Ivoire, 170 in Burkina Faso, and 200 in Liberia. The partnership between Orange and Vanu will provide technology upgrades and will be based on the innovative model of ”Network-as-a-Service” (NaaS). Orange Cote d’Ivoire Group, a Mobile Network Operator with a long-term and sustainable commitment to the different countries in which it operates, saw a need to change its investment model for deployment in remote areas, for a more efficient model. With its subsidiaries in Cote d’Ivoire, Liberia and Burkina Faso, the quality of life of rural populations will be improved and inequalities reduced, thanks to the provision of digital services for all (voice communications, Internet, Energy, etc.) Nafy Coulibaly, the deputy director general in charge of operations in Cote d’Ivoire, Burkina Faso and Liberia, says, “In order to provide digital services for all, Orange will deploy its services by strategically improving/increasing its network coverage so that no one will be left behind. This will be achieved by ensuring that we provide, to as many people as possible, free and unfettered access to digital services everywhere. Orange welcomes this partnership, which will offer digital services to millions of uncovered people in rural areas in Cote d’Ivoire, Burkina Faso, and Liberia.” Andrew Beard, CEO of Vanu, notes, “Vanu is pleased to provide technology and expertise in support of Orange’s coverage goals and our team looks forward to rolling out network sites across regions where extended connectivity will have an enormous and immediate impact for the uncovered population.” Execution of this project will be done in accordance with environmental standards, which is a major priority for Orange Group. This partnership aligns with Orange’s IDEAL programme, aiming to extend coverage to 20 million rural inhabitants through the construction of 5000 sites within four years.
