Standing strong on the mission to close the connectivity gap and extend network coverage in the Middle East and Africa, Radio Innovation acquired a new partner – Serta, who will distribute and supply Radio Innovation’s antennas in the region. Serta is an ICT solutions provider and a subsidiary of Resource Group. We know that with the partners like Serta, who share the vision for the connected world, we can achieve the mission much faster.
As countries are opening up after the long pandemic, Radio Innovation now has the opportunity to meet and introduce its product to customers worldwide. In July, Radio Innovation and the Embassy of El Salvador in Sweden paid a visit to El Salvador to meet the government and potential customers and discuss the business possibilities in Latin America. The plan is to set up several POCs in October in El Salvador as the first step toward becoming a partner in El Salvador’s National Connectivity Plan, which aims to connect the whole country with top-quality internet. We also met with the private MNOs Telefonica and Claro- had very successful meetings, and we strive to have PoC with them as well. We could see and feel the immediate need of this fast-developing blooming country for cost-efficient high-speed mobile internet, and we will be happy to help them to reach their goal. The next step for us will be to build strong relationships with the rest of the Latin American market and explore the possibilities of establishing an assembly in the area as a strategic distribution solution.
