The Commission, in fulfilling its mandate of promoting telecom-based innovations from the academia, had invited research proposals from tertiary institutions in the country.

According to the telecoms regulator, the concept was evaluated along with 10 other research proposals by professionals from the academia, industry and the public sector. NCC said that it “ultimately rated the research proposal of the Covenant University don as the most preferred submission.”

The agency said it was “guided by this informed decision of the professionals and the claim of the researchers that the portable NBS is realisable locally and capable of boosting the capacity of contiguous cell sites to cope with unplanned traffic surge at places of big events and high telecommunication usage, thereby mitigating the incidences of drop calls and other poor quality of service issues.”

The regulator also explained that its role in the project is to “provide a grant to the researchers to produce the research proposal to prototype. If the Prototype is robust and competitive, there should be investors to fund its mass production to the mutual benefit of the researchers/Covenant University and the financial collaborators.”
