The Minister of Communication and Digitalisation, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, announced that Nokia, Tech Mahindra, and Radisys will establish innovation centers in Ghana, creating jobs and boosting digital skills among the youth.

This initiative is part of their role in rolling out a shared 4G and 5G infrastructure in the country.

Speaking at a press conference in Accra, Owusu-Ekuful highlighted the government’s initiative to establish a shared digital public infrastructure (DPI) for the deployment of 4G and 5G networks across Ghana. The government has licensed NextGen Infrastructure Company (NGIC) as the sole wholesale service provider to roll out an open access 4G and 5G network nationwide, which all service providers can use for retail purposes.

The SPV comprises three foreign tech giants—Nokia, Tech Mahindra, and Radisys; two local entities—KNET and Ascend Digital; and two telcos—Telecel Ghana and AT Ghana.

Owusu-Ekuful noted that Nokia will establish its first technology innovation lab in Accra, create 5G use cases for the continent, and provide career opportunities for engineering graduates. Additionally, Nokia will supply a radio access network.

Tech Mahindra will build a cloud-native core network to support the development of network infrastructure and related services, driven by leading Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) platforms. This will ensure Ghana’s networks are reliable, expandable, and future-proof. The company will also set up its first global software delivery center in Ghana, allowing the youth to lead in automation, robotics, AI, and machine learning.

Radisys will offer Open Radio Access Networks (OpenRAN), enabling disaggregated networks for 4G and 5G mobile and stationary wireless access. Radisys also provides digital platforms and apps that support inclusive and sustainable development, alongside affordable 4G and 5G equipment. This partnership marks Radisys’ first venture into Africa, aiming to build digital skills and create jobs in Ghana and across the continent.

Owusu-Ekuful emphasized that this collaboration will reduce Ghana’s unemployment rate and solidify the country’s position as Africa’s digital black star.
