“When you have so many people relying on the network, you can’t afford to have it underperform or break down. What’s more, the areas where we have deployed the towers through our partner Mayu are difficult to get to, so in addition to being environmentally clean and cost-efficient, we needed a system that would remain operational without the need for frequent maintenance or repairs. Clear Blue’s Smart Off-Grid technology provides highly reliable off-grid power and the remote control and management capabilities are necessary to perform well in this challenging environment. The new connectivity will empower the people of Atalaya to join the modern marketplace.” - Cesar Hernandez, manager of strategic projects and investments, Telefónica.
“Parallel Wireless is working with many partners in a broad telecom ecosystem to deliver rapid innovation across hardware and software domains for the industry.

Nigeria: “We were really impressed by Clear Blue, its Smart Off-Grid technology, and the company’s willingness to collaborate on providing an integrated solution for powering our wireless communications technology. Smart Off-Grid systems are crucial for the success of bringing connectivity to these rural and unserved areas by increasing reliability and uptime.” – Francis Létourneau, CEO of NuRAN Wireless
“Clear Blue’s Smart Off-Grid system is a critical component of our ability to provide voice and data services to unserved and underserved people in rural Nigeria. It enables us to implement our telecom infrastructure in remote areas where there is no electric grid access, and manage these systems via the Internet, increasing reliability and reducing costs. Using solar power for our telecom sites in southern Nigeria has always been a challenge due to the area’s frequent cloud coverage. However, the quality and reliability of Clear Blue’s power solution is far superior to other vendors. Since we first installed Clear Blue’s Smart Off-Grid system in April 2017, the site has not lost power once, while previous solar power systems would fail every other day. The weather prediction technology and event driven analytics also means we can make proactive decisions and reduce the power draw to preserve the battery power and ride out bad weather.” - Tunji Alabi, Executive Director of Raeanna
“Our core belief is that everyone deserves the socioeconomic benefits of a more connected life, and this partnership with Clear Blue will bring life-enhancing coverage to rural communities in remote areas.
