QUEBEC CITY, Quebec, July 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NuRAN Wireless Inc. (CSE:NUR) (OTC:NRRWF) (FSE:1RN), a leading supplier of mobile and broadband wireless infrastructure solutions, is conducting a series of trials of the Telecom Infra Project’s (TIP) OpenCellular wireless access platform with Tier-1 mobile network operators (“MNOs”). NuRAN is working in collaboration with Facebook and TIP as an original equipment manufacturer and distributor of OpenCellular.

As a further step towards the wide scale adoption of OpenCellular, NuRAN has entered into agreements with multiple tier-1 MNOs to conduct trials to validate network compatibility and to confirm the product’s functionalities, performance, and suitability for remote rural operation. Telecom equipment must go through a trial phase in order to be qualified by operators and in most cases involves lab and field trials. NuRAN has successfully completed a significant number of lab trials with these operators and is now preparing for field testing.

"We’re excited by NuRAN’s contributions to the OpenCellular Project Group and their trials with more mobile operators," said Dr. Kashif Ali, Chair of TIP’s OpenCellular Project Group and Facebook Engineer.  “These trials are an important contribution towards the project group’s goal of enabling reliable low-cost connectivity for people living in rural areas all over the world."

“OpenCellular deployment plans are getting tangible as operators are affirming their interest in using such innovative solutions, even more so now that they can now witness the equipment operating on their live network. NuRAN will continue its involvement with OpenCellular through the qualification process with operators, and maintain its positioning at the forefront of Connecting the Next Billion,” stated Maxime Dumas, VP Strategy & Corporate Development at NuRAN Wireless.
