VIPNET replaces WiMAX network with JET Beamforming PtMP from RADWIN
RADWIN have announced that VIPNET has chosen the RADWIN 5000 JET PTMP system to replace its existing 3.5 GHz WiMAX network. The new RADWIN-based corporate access network spans the major cities in the Ivory Coast, providing ultra-capacity connectivity to key institutions including Banks, Government offices, Mining and Gas & Oil companies. VIPNET is a long-standing RADWIN customer, with hundreds of RADWIN 5000 PtMP systems already installed in its network since 2013.
RADWIN 5000 JET is a revolutionary solution that’s empowering us to remove capacity barriers in our network,” says Ahmed Cherif, CEO, VIPNET. “Since we first started deploying RADWIN 5000 JET we’ve witnessed a major improvement in coverage and throughput over the WIMAX network and can guarantee SLAs to our customers. With the RADWIN 5000 JET Beamforming PtMP we are achieving even greater sector and network capacity due to JET’s high frequency reuse and system gain.
Many WiMAX networks are congested and cannot handle growing capacity demands,” according to Raymond Forado, RADWIN GM Europe, North and West Africa. “Operators looking to inject capacity into their networks are adopting RADWIN 5000 JET, and VIPNET is the latest in a long list of operators to implement the solution. JET is rapidly gaining traction as the most innovative radio technology for carriers looking to deliver superfast wireless broadband. Incorporating Beamforming technology, JET radios deliver ultra-capacity and operate in tough interference and non-line-of-sight conditions.
