Ontel chooses Radwin’s Jet Duo base-station to perform in Burkina Faso
Radwin, a global wireless broadband provider, has been chosen by the service provider Ontel in Burkina Faso. Radwin’s Jet Duo base station can fulfill the high-speed requirements of SMEs and large corporate customers, amongst them banks, mining companies and government offices.
To date, Onatel has deployed more than 70 JET DUO dual band radios and hundreds of subscriber units and has plans to scale its network.
Onatel explained why they decided to deploy RADWIN JET DUO because it gives them the flexibility to serve large corporates on the 3.5GHz licensed band and SMEs on the 5.xGHz band from one dual-band radio, and also allows them to uphold SLAs for corporate clients. Servicing business customers with JET DUO is considerably cheaper than through leased lines. “Because we’re getting dual radios in a single enclosure (3.5GHz & 5.xGHz), we’re realising dramatic cost savings on tower space and rental expenses monthly,” said a representative from the company.
Gal Kohn of RADWIN added, “We’re excited that Onatel has chosen JET DUO to fulfill customer demand for broadband. RADWIN’s JET DUO dual band radio was exclusively designed to meet the needs of service providers who own a license in the 3.xGHz typically narrow band and also want to open the 3.xGHz capacity bottleneck using the license-free 5.xGHz wide band.”
