Mimosa Networks Partners with Safaricom to Bridge Connectivity Gaps in Rural Kenya Communities

[Santa Clara, California] – Mimosa Networks, a Radisys® Corporation subsidiary and leading provider of cloud-managed, hybrid fiber-wireless network solutions, is pleased to announce a groundbreaking partnership with Safaricom, Kenya's leading telecommunications provider, to bring fixed wireless access to rural communities within Kenya.

In a bid to connect underserved areas with reliable internet connectivity, Safaricom has launched a visionary project aimed at providing fixed wireless access to rural communities in Kenya. Leveraging Mimosa's cutting-edge A5c/C5x products, Safaricom will connect residential homes and buildings, ensuring that even the most remote areas have access to high-speed internet.

The project's primary objective is to connect thousands of customers in rural Kenyan communities within the next three years, addressing the digital divide and unlocking the potential for socio-economic development in these communities.

"Mimosa Networks is thrilled to collaborate with Safaricom on this transformative project," said Jim Nevelle, SVP and General Manager at Mimosa Networks. "By combining Safaricom's extensive reach and expertise in the telecommunications industry with Mimosa's innovative wireless technology, we aim to bring reliable internet access to thousands of people in rural parts of Kenya and beyond, empowering them with the tools and resources they need to thrive in today's digital world."

Safaricom's commitment to connecting rural communities aligns perfectly with Mimosa's mission to democratize access to high-speed internet, particularly in underserved areas where traditional wired infrastructure is impractical or cost-prohibitive.

Mimosa Networks and Safaricom are proud to embark on this ambitious journey together, bringing connectivity to those who need it most and paving the way for a more inclusive and connected future for Kenya.
