Low energy active equipment and active infrastructure sharing

“In Africa generally every site, even if connected to grid, needs to have pair of backup generators. This can be hugely expensive, complex and frankly wasteful,” said Kamar Abass, Country Manager for Nigeria and Head of Regional Accounts, RSSA for Ericsson. “However, the power consumed by our equipment is on a downward trajectory.”

“Nigerian regulators are insisting on infrastructure investment – coverage requirements are ‘baked in’ to licenses – so the mindset of operators is focused on physical investment; on RAN and on building significant transmission networks that didn’t exist in the pre-mobile world,” added Abass.

“Property rights aren’t enshrined in Nigeria as they are in other countries – land may be owned by families, with no paperwork,” continued Ericsson’s Country Manager for Nigeria.
