Bharti Airtel follows Vodafone in partnering with network extender company

Bharti Airtel, India’s telco giant, has chosen 5BARz to bring it closer to its goals of improving the connectivity of its users.



Bharti Airtel, India’s largest telecommunications services provider, has engaged the services of 5BARz International. The 5BARz network extender will be set up at Airtel subscribers’ homes and offices where there is a pressing need to strengthen cellular signals.

Through its Indian arm, the technology leader in the cellular network extender industry is helping Airtel with Project Leap. Project Leap is a network transformation program that aims to visibly enhance network quality customer experience.

“We are very excited to work with Bharti Airtel, India’s leading telecom operator. Encouraged by our previous successes in the field and laboratory trials we are now looking forward to work with Bharti Airtel and roll-out our services pan India in the coming days,” Samartha Nagabhushanam, 5BARz India CEO, stated.

Bharti Airtel: Following Vodafone India

Vodafone India was in fact the first major telecommunications company to commercialize the 5BARz network extender. Back then in December, the network operator announced a 13-billion rupee investment to upgrade its network. Part of this investment is the company’s intent to release the revolutionary network extender.


Vodafone has also issued a follow-on purchase order to their initial purchase orders last summer. The two firms eventually hope to solidify their market share and presence by delivering an enhanced indoor connectivity.

“This is an exciting time for our company, as we continue to make significant headway. And they are not only the largest telcos in India, but also are two of the three largest telcos in the world. We believe that their endorsement indicates the quality and market opportunity for our network extender product,” 5BARz International CEO Daniel Bland said in a press release.

“I look forward to what we believe will be a rapidly growing adoption of the 5BARz network extender throughout the global telecommunications industry in the coming months and years,” said former Apple CEO and current 5BARz International Chairman Dr. Gil Amelio.

Network extender for homes and offices

The 5BARz network extender is the world’s first highly innovative carrier grade technology device. In addition, it delivers vastly improved cellular signals, enhanced voice, data and video reception, and extended life on all cellular-equipped devices. By giving mobile users five bars of signal, users also conserve 80 percent more battery life.

The device also aims to optimize their work and personal life connectivity. Thick concrete walls and the extremely cluttered buildings in urban areas usually weaken signals. The device, which is a single plug-and-play unit, can enhance signals in a two-bedroom apartment or a small office. Tests haveactually proven the network extender’s success in strengthening cellular signals in densely populated urban areas.
