CLATA Telecom Brings Tarana’s ngFWA Broadband Technology to African Service Providers

CLATA Telecom and Tarana announce their partnership to deliver Gigabit 1 (G1) to network operators throughout Africa.

Congo DRC, Africa and Milpitas, California, United States — Wednesday, October 25, 2023 — CLATA Telecom, a global broadband equipment supplier, and Tarana, the category creator of next-generation fixed wireless access (ngFWA) technology, today announced their partnership to deliver Gigabit 1 (G1), Tarana’s revolutionary ngFWA broadband solution, to network operators throughout Africa.

The CLATA team is “committed to offering cutting-edge solutions to ensure that their customers have access to the most advanced forms of communication technology,” and the inclusion of Tarana G1 in their product portfolio is a clear demonstration of that pledge. G1’s ability to wirelessly deliver hundreds of Mbps through gigabit-tier services, even in non-line-of-sight (NLoS) scenarios and noisy spectrum environments, is an industry first that will enable CLATA customers to significantly expand network coverage with substantially faster deployment times and lower costs than fiber-only projects.

Just two years after its commercial launch, G1 is now well-proven in more than 200 operator networks around the world. CLATA Africa — the recently announced CLATA affiliate located in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) — is set to expand G1 adoption even further, providing responsive local support and expertise to internet service providers (ISPs) and telecom operators throughout the continent.

Nicolas Belhassen, CLATA Telecom CEO, shared, “We’re very excited about our collaboration with Tarana and the strategic approach we’re embracing to reach more of the telecommunications industry with this innovative platform. G1 will undoubtedly be a critical tool in our overarching mission to bridge the digital divide with reliable and affordable connectivity solutions.”

Tarana VP of Worldwide Sales, Mike Calabrese, added, “CLATA Telecom is an excellent addition to our channel partner network. We look forward to combining their large customer base and distribution expertise with Tarana’s ngFWA advancements to make material progress on the digital divide in Africa.”
