Importance of electricity to rollout of ICT infrastructure

Posted on September 7, 2014  /  1 Comments

Cummins is a big name, but not in ICTs. So this story caught my eye.

Cummins Power Generation has secured a contract to supply hybrid power solutions to Irrawaddy Green Towers (IGT) in Myanmar. Under this contract, Cummins will supply solar hybrid, battery hybrid and diesel generator solutions to over 750 cell-tower sites that IGT will roll out in Myanmar during the next twelve months.

. . . . . .

Irrawaddy Green Towers has been selected by Telenor Myanmar to build and operate telecom towers for Telenor’s large scale, countrywide mobile network. In early 2013, Telenor and Ooredoo won a license to launch a mobile network in Myanmar. Cummins is already one of the leading suppliers to Ooredoo and with this new supply contract with Irrawaddy Green Towers, two of the nation’s largest mobile service providers’ networks will be powered by Cummins.
