Aircom Systems, a renowned player in the technology sector, has expanded its business partnership with Cambium Networks, a global industry leader that provides high tech end-to-end wireless connectivity systems.
The agreement will grant Aircom Systems the authorization to promote and distribute a wide array of wireless connectivity services within the East African regional area to countries like Tanzania, Uganda, Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, D.R. Congo, South Sudan, Eritrea, Malawi, and Ethiopia.
Aircom has more than 11 years of experience serving the East African market, and the firm intends to use a network of resellers comprising telecoms, ISPs, managed service providers, and system integrators to propagate its reach to its target markets.
“We are pleased to start the distribution of Cambium Networks’ platforms. Its network solutions align with our current wireless communications portfolio and deliver more comprehensive connectivity solutions. The ongoing support and expertise Cambium Networks gives its partners are also extremely valuable, and we look forward to helping to connect currently unconnected enterprises of all sizes across the region,” said Mr. Murali, Aircom Systems Ltd Managing Director.
Aircom Systems provides a broad spectrum of global technology and critical supply chain services to businesses around the world. With expertise in a wide range of technology solutions, the firm enables businesses that outsource its services to streamline their operations.
“Aircom Systems Limited brings a formidable partner network and enterprise networking footprint in the region. Aircom Systems’ strong presence locally in the EAC markets, coupled with Cambium’s disruptive enterprise offerings and existing wireless deployments in these markets, will make for a successful alliance, “said Cambium Networks’ Regional Vice President for Europe, Middle East, and Africa, Martín de la Serna.
With the aftershocks of the Covid-19 pandemic still being felt, Cambium Networks predicted that remote working was a trend in the corporate world that was here to stay, leading workers to migrate from city center-based work.
Uganda has experienced a growth in wireless broadband internet reach to several areas outside the city center that were previously unreached.
Industry experts believe 2022 will see continued demand for high-speed wireless broadband, leading to the deployment of hybrid wireless/wired networks by service providers and private network entities.
