South African B2B wireless services provider Comsol Networks has signed a frame contract agreement for terminals and hub site equipment with Intracom Telecom.
Intracom Telecom will supply its latest generation of WiBAS-OSDR, a Point-to-Multipoint (PtMP) wireless system, along with company's network management system (uni|MS). The firm is currently implementing the first phase of the five-year contract, while the total investment is estimated to reach USD 9 million.
Comsol has selected Intracom Telecom's WiBAS-OSDR at the 28 GHz frequency band after an international tender, technical evaluation and extensive field testing of the offered systems, in order to offer superior open access Layer 2 last mile connectivity services, to its growing number of corporate customers in over 200 towns across South Africa.
The product is the only one available worldwide to make full use of Comsol’s expanded spectrum assets, reaching up to 56 MHz channel, and advanced networking features, enabling the service provider to implement high calibre services for its subscribers with a committed turnaround time of under seven working days.
Darren Morgan, Comsol Networks Chief Operating Officer, stated: “The OSDR product line offers the highest capacity per base station, allowing us to deliver exactly what the South African market wants; that is more capacity at a cheaper rate.”
John Tenidis, Marketing Director of Intracom Telecom's wireless solutions portfolio, commented: “Our WiBAS-OSDR provides the highest capacity in the industry, the best radio technology for uninterrupted service and the widest set of networking functions to help Comsol satisfy its strict requirements.”
