Radwin, a global provider of backhaul and broadband wireless solutions, has announced that Africa INX, an ISP based in Gauteng, South Africa, has deployed the RADWIN 5000 point-to-multipoint solution to deliver high-capacity services to businesses requiring a reliable, fast connection.
The RADWIN 5000 base station was installed at the Irene Mall, and covers the entire R21 office park. The RADWIN installation is also backhauled into the Africa INX fibre node in R21 through which Africa INX provides Internet, MPLS and other related services.
RADWIN 5000 point-to-multipoint solution delivers high-capacity of up to 200 Mbps and guaranteed bandwidth. Incorporating advanced technologies such as MIMO and OFDM, RADWIN 5000 operates in demanding environments including non-line-of-sight, harsh climates and challenging topographies.
Stuart Hardy, Managing Director of Africa INX, stated: "RADWIN's radios perform exceptionally well even in the city environment where there is major interference and many obstacles to direct line-of-sight. RADWIN proved to be the ideal solution for us; the systems are easy to deploy, we had the entire network up and running in just 2 days, and can keep our costs down. Based on our positive experience with RADWIN we will deploy these systems in the future to serve our ever-growing customer base."
Peter Turvey, RADWIN Managing Director SADC: "RADWIN 5000 is the right solution for ISPs such as Africa INX. Durable and robust, our solutions handle the most challenging conditions, and time and again have proven to work in the most extreme environments. We are proud to add Africa INX to our large customer base in South Africa, and are happy that they chose us to fulfill their connectivity needs."
