The government extended WiMAX network through 32 industrial centers
Airspan Networks, a provider of broadband wireless access networks, has announced that the government of La Xunta, Spain, through its service provider R, has selected Airspan equipment to create two networks, one used for the municipality to connect offices throughout the region, while the second is connecting several industrial zones and businesses to WiMAX.
Providing the backhaul system to connect various remote branch offices to the government IT network, Airspan, working with partner Colabora Ingeneiros, has enabled the municipality to extend government services such as social, economical and healthcare support to its citizens.
The government has also extended a WiMAX network through 32 industrial centers, enabling small office/home office and small/medium enterprise to access high-speed broadband internet connections up to 6Mbps and internet telephony.
Airspan Networks said that the WiMAX network includes 32 Airspan WiMAX base stations with a quantity of ProST outdoor units installed at the customer premises. The inherent technology of the ProST subscriber terminals ensures improved connectivity rates over long distances, supplying reliable data transmission in both line-of-site and non-line-of-site environments.
Declan Byrne, chief marketing officer of Airspan, said: La Xunta has incorporated Airspan’s innovative technology to its networks, helping them become more efficient, improve commerce, serve the public and begin to standardize services across the county.
