SkyMax Network, Ericsson Collaborate to Build 5G in Africa

Posted on : Friday , 12th August 2022

SkyMax Network, a multinational wireless communications engineering company, and Ericsson have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to create a partnership aimed at building a next generation 5G broadband network, inclusive of a digital services delivery platform, across Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).  

 

The MoU, a result of a two-year collaboration between the two parties, serves as the basis for further discussions, interactions, and future collaborations. Under the MoU, Ericsson will be SkyMax’s trusted partner for network supply, rollout, and optimization and for managed services. Ericsson will explore partnership opportunities in end-to-end business and technology solutions including Radio Access and Mobile Transport network solutions, core network and provisioning systems, Business Support Systems, and Managed Services including Cognitive Software network optimizations and Business Consulting Support.

 

SkyMax’s 5G Digital Service Delivery Platform (5G DSDP) is its high-speed data network that offers diverse offerings such as network slicing, ultra-low latency, Internet of Things (IoTs), edge computing, cloud computing, cloud telephony and Network Exposure Function or NEF (NEF enables third-party developers and enterprises to create and tailor their own network services on-demand on SkyMax 5G DSDP), all of which create a host of new opportunities. It enables the development of the digital economy by opening up opportunities in energy and water supply management, telecommunications, transport, financial services, telemedicine (including remote surgery), e-agriculture, smart ports, remote mining, medical records management, connected cars, industrial IoT, immersive education, the integration and interoperability of communicating objects and smart electrical grids and other so-called intelligent networks, a “smart city,” and much more, all at a low service cost.

 

SkyMax intends to increase the development of broadband networks in SSA by sharing its 5G DSDP with incumbent service providers by using its 5G network slicing technologies.

 

In SSA, SkyMax plans to launch  SkyMax Entrepreneurship Development (SED) to develop its private 5G network for new markets and applications with limitless possibilities. SkyMax will train and certify service providers, individuals, and businesses so they can best take advantage of the value private 5G will bring to areas such as e-agriculture, smart buildings and smart cities.

 

These entrepreneur partners will be able to develop their own private 5G businesses on SkyMax 5G DSDP for revenue sharing. SkyMax Entrepreneurship Development (SED) will have a profound and sustained impact on economic growth and job creation.

 

As part of the MoU, SkyMax will also be able to tap Ericsson’s world-class technologies and global deployment experience in network design, network management and market development.
