Leading ISP in Zambia deploys RADWIN 5000 to drive high-capacity to large corporate clients Tel Aviv, Israel, September 19, 2012 - RADWIN (www.radwin.com), the global provider of Backhaul and Broadband Wireless solutions, today announced that Internet Technology Zambia Limited (ITZ), a leading ISP from Zambia, deployed RADWIN 5000 point-to-multipoint solution in the licensed 5.4 GHz band. ITZ is using RADWIN’s systems to drive high-capacity services to large corporate clients including banks and mining companies in the capital city of Lusaka, and in Kitwe and Solwezi in the Copperbelt. Beacon Telecom, a RADWIN certified partner, was the distributor for this project.
RADWIN 5000 is a high capacity point-to-multipoint solution that delivers over 200 Mbps per base station sector, and operates seamlessly in harsh conditions in licensed and unlicensed sub-6 GHz bands. Systems deliver dedicated bandwidth per end-user, enabling operators to offer and meet agreed-upon service level agreements (SLAs).
Colwyn van Rensburg, Managing Director of ITZ: “Originally we planned on deploying a WiMAX network, but after evaluating RADWIN 5000 we understood that this wireless solution was the best option for large corporate links and the way to go forward. Using the RADWIN Network Planning tool we were able to effectively plan the network, and the links were easy and quick to deploy. Durable and robust, the RADWIN 5000 systems operate over long distances and in areas with many obstacles to line-of-sight, enabling us to meet the high-capacity needs of our valued corporate customers. Additionally, RADWIN’s in-country support is a huge benefit.”

We provide industry-leading products and give our customers the tools to effectively plan, monitor and manage their wireless networks. ISPs around the world are using our solutions to deliver high-capacity connectivity to their customers, and we are proud to include ITZ among our large ISP customer base. “
