The Nigerian Railway Corporation has signed up Norwegian firm Eltek’s US subsidiary Nera Networks to upgrade the radio communication along a 1,200km railway.

The company will deliver Evolution Series XPAND IP microwave radios for a total of 72 hops under the $6m contract.

The majority of the sites will have solar power as the primary power source, the company said.
