The Wall Street Journal has named VNL’s zero-opex solar-powered GSM system as Winner of the Wireless Category and overall Bronze winner in its 2009 Technology Innovation Awards.
VNL’s WorldGSM is a zero-opex solar-powered GSM system specifically designed to enable mobile operators to build sustainable and profitable networks in remote rural areas where ARPUs are less than $2 a month.
Rajiv Mehrotra founder Chairman & CEO of VNL, quoted
"We hope that the WSJ’s recognition of VNL will encourage operators in countries where there are rural populations not covered by a phone network to get in touch. We are the only company which enables operators to build commercially viable and sustainable networks in low ARPU areas. We have many trials in progress - finally operators have a way to reach the most remote communities around the globe."
