ISP Internet Technologies Angola (ITA/Maxnet) has deployed a national network using Israeli vendor RADWIN’s Point-to-MultiPoint (P2MP) solutions in the 2.2GHz-2.3GHz band. In a press release, corporate broadband specialist ITA’s CEO Rolf Mendelsohn said: ‘We sought a solution in the unique 2.2GHz-2.3GHz band that could coexist with the high transmit power of the 3G cellular network [operated by other companies] in our capital Luanda and other cities. We evaluated several technologies including WiMAX and realised that RADWIN’s carrier-grade wireless broadband was the solution for our needs. RADWIN tailored a solution to fulfill our requirements and today we can provide high-speed connectivity of 50Mbps and upwards with low latency and guaranteed SLAs [service level agreements] to our valued corporate clients.’ Peter Turvey, RADWIN’s general manager for southern and east Africa, added: ‘We did a bespoke development to cater to ITA’s requirements, providing a WiMAX replacement in a tough radio band. Service providers around the world are turning to our JET and RADWIN 5000 PtMP because these solutions deliver fibre-like connectivity and scalability at a price point that beats other technologies including fibre.’
