Motorola has deployed a wind and solar powered system to operate MTC Namibia’s GSM cell site at Dordabis village in the Khomas region of Namibia.
The trial with MTC Namibia supports the African operator’s strategy for increased voice and data service coverage in rural areas of Namibia and is the first of its kind globally.
Communication is a major challenge in Namibia given that nearly 90% of the country?s population lives in rural areas with limited or no access to traditional power. While electricity is rare in some places, wind and sun are plentiful so this solution is ideal for both emerging and developed markets.
