Active infrastructure sharing for 4G in Mozambique
Will sharing maintenance and management of active networks reduce 4G opex and capex by up to 40% in Mozambique?
Is active sharing coming to Africa? After a decade of sharing passive infrastructure, Godwin Makyao, the founder of Maktech thinks that sharing active network equipment is the next phase for mobile networks in Africa. African MNOs have limited capex to deploy each year, and have to deal with unreliable power which push up their opex. Active sharing can reduce both. Starting in Mozambique, but with his eyes on Tanzania and Madagascar too, Maktech is planning to roll-out 4G base stations for operators while offering shared antennae and shared active management and maintenance to up to four operators in the very near future.
