Last-mile Connectivity Solutions

Fiber is the backbone to deliver high speed broadband but will never get to every premises in the land without using complimentary solutions

NWNS’ Last-mile Connectivity Service connects (potential) customers with potential service and solution providers in more than 140 countries, and makes sure end-users get the service or solution they need at the best possible price. Whether satellite, microwave, fibre optic, or mobile network connection, NWNS draws upon its network and extensive research to identify potential providers, solicits bids, and then deliver a finished service (proposal). 

The range of market sectors we cover is versatile and we are not limiting ourselves but we have our focus on telecommunications (including ISPs), (off-grid) utilities and (high tech) agriculture. And, because we don’t provide services to end users directly, we never compete with our customers.

PROBLEM: Over the course of the last two decades, the internet has become nearly ubiquitous. However, in many countries or (remote) areas Internet is still either unavailable, intermittent, restricted, or slow at its very best.

Multinational operating organizations – our customers – want universal and guaranteed access to reliable, stable, and affordable Internet wherever they do business. However, contrary to popular believe, access to reliable Internet is not always easy to organize or implement. Service and maintenance are another point of concern.

In addition to universal access to mission critical Internet, corporates have at least three more stringent requirements:

    1. Resilience: Everything fails eventually, even in networking. Enterprises should prepare for network failure by building resilience and redundancy into their mission critical network infrastructure design.
    2. Network Security: A broad term that covers a multitude of technologies, devices. and processes. It typically consists of three different controls: physical, technical, and administrative. The remote field is not excluded from this.
    3. Fabulous customer & managed field service in addition to real time network management and performance visibility.

At NWNS we understand our customer requirements and we provide a matching “Last Mile Connectivity Service” to businesses operating internationally. We provide this service globally, but our focus is on developing markets and underserved areas. 

Because this is where we can make all the difference.

The concept is easy: NWNS represent its customer there where the service is required. We organize and deliver a total solution as specified by our customer

But the devil is in the details: Beyond the logistical difficulties with providing internet access in developing countries the challenge of access can be severely limited by factors including economical (excessive costs), technical (lack of coverage), and cultural (over-regulation aka bureaucracy).  

We believe that one must have the boots on the ground, the people in place to manage and overcome all the local hurdles. And we have.

How we do it:

In the space of 25+ years we’ve established a reliable global network of local affiliates and Field Service Representatives who work on our behalf. In addition, we have closed flexible agreements with licensed telecom providers operating locally.

Providing possible and allowed, they supply us with the access and bandwidth solutions required. If for whatever reason our local providers cannot supply, deliver, or meet specifications, NWNS will sources, propose, and implement alternatives such as for example satellite-based solutions.   

Where we’ve supported our customers:

Examples of countries where NWNS has successfully arranged for – or on behalf – its customers last mile connectivity include:
