As reported in IVC: RADWIN’s High-Capacity Links Deliver Long-range Connectivity to Rural Communities

RADWIN the leading provider of Backhaul and Broadband Wireless Solutions, today announced that its RADWIN 2000 high-capacity links were chosen by the largest mining company in Chile. As part of its corporate social responsibility policy, the mining company deployed RADWIN’s solutions to help extend Internet connectivity and e-learning to rural communities in Chile’s Atacama Desert. Transworld S.A, a leading distributor and integrator and RADWIN’s certified partner, was in charge of project deployment.

Alejandro Melipillan A., a Wireless and Video Surveillance Product Manager at Transworld S.A., stated: “The mining company’s mission is to drive connectivity to rural communities. No ISP could provide this service because of the vast distances involved, and the only other solution available was a satellite connection that offered extremely limited bandwidth. RADWIN’s links proved to be ideal for this type of rural connectivity. The topology entailed installation across multiple hops, and RADWIN’s links connected bases as far as 70 Km apart while securing continuous high throughput. RADWIN’s systems were deployed within hours and they work perfectly in the Atacama Desert, one of the driest deserts in the world that contends with extremely high and low temperatures.”

Roni Weinberg, RADWIN’s Chief Operating Officer, stated: “We are proud to have been chosen by the largest mining company in Chile and to play a key role in promoting connectivity to remote communities. RADWIN’s systems are deployed in rural connectivity projects across the globe due to a powerful combination of high-speed, long-range connectivity and low power consumption at cost-effective prices. As more and more private companies and service providers reach out to rural communities, RADWIN is becoming their vendor of choice.”
