The project will increase mobile coverage without altering the architecture of the complex, which is a historical, religious, and cultural heritage in Brazil
The National Sanctuary of Nossa Senhora Aparecida, one of the largest religious pilgrimage centers in the world, will have new telecommunications infrastructure. QMC Telecom has been contracted by Vivo to expand cellular coverage in the complex, which receives approximately 12 million visitors annually. Other carriers may join the project in the future.
The initiative addresses a long-standing demand from worshippers, residents, and businesses in the region who have experienced poor mobile phone and internet signal quality on the premises. QMC Telecom will install state-of-the-art infrastructure and equipment to enhance coverage and network capacity, improving connectivity throughout the religious complex of Aparecida.
The project faces the challenge of preserving the architecture and aesthetics of the sanctuary, which is a historical and cultural heritage of Brazil. To achieve this, QMC Telecom will employ discreet and integrated solutions tailored to the Aparecida environment, adhering to all norms and requirements of the sanctuary administration and relevant authorities.
“QMC Telecom’s mission is to promote growth through connectivity. With the initial presence of Vivo, we will deliver an efficient, secure, and sustainable solution that respects the historical and religious value of the site” says Murilo Almeida, President of QMC Telecom in Brazil.
The system is already in the implementation phase and is expected to be operational in the first half of 2024.
