Pereiro/CE, 03/16/2021 - Brisanet today announced it will bring wireless connectivity to several locations in Northeast Brazil with Magma, from Facebook Connectivity. Magma is an open source, flexible and extendable mobile core network solution. With this collaboration, Brisanet aims to reduce costs and improve access to connectivity in remote areas that lack infrastructure.

Brisanet is the first operator to use Magma on a commercial large-scale deployment. To begin the project, Brisanet's CEO, Roberto Nogueira, acquired 400 cell towers with the objective of serving 40,000 rural customers with excellent performance in 2021.

With this new deployment, Brisanet will offer high quality navigation experience and low prices to all customers in the Northeast of Brazil, thus enabling social and technological inclusion to the Northeastern population.

Brisanet plays a fundamental role in the connectivity ecosystem in Brazil using Magma and system integrators like WLLCTEL, it seeks to connect regions without coverage, especially the rural areas in the Northeast.

"We are moving ahead with the company's initial purpose, disseminating knowledge through the internet, connecting people in small towns, villages, districts and rural areas for about 22 years”, said Roberto Nogueira, CEO of Brisanet. “Since its foundation, we have been meeting the growing demand to connect regions without coverage in the interior of the Northeast.”

“We are proud to partner with Brisanet to reduce the digital divide in this important area of Brazil” said Tarcisio Ribeiro, Director of International Business Development and Operator Partnerships, LATAM for Facebook Connectivity. “These areas in the Northeast are very challenging and costly to cover, but Magma enables operators like Brisanet to serve the population with good quality of service and in a cost-effective way."
