Broadband availability expanded in Sweden
Broadband availability in Mossberg, Sweden, has been successfully expanded by NEC Corporation and NEC Scandinavia, through the installation of the iPASOLINK EX-Advanced for Alingsas Energi. This is reportedly the first time that a 10Gbps ultra-high speed wireless point-to-point link with a millimetre wave frequency band of 80GHz has been deployed in Sweden.
As a municipally-owned energy company in Alingsas, Sweden, Alingsas Energi focuses on contributing to the municipality's goal of developing a sustainable society. As a result of this project, which was carried out in cooperation with Vixor, a wireless communications provider, Alingsas Energi was able to expand the provision of broadband availability in the rural and suburban area of Mossberg by deploying iPASOLINK EX-Advanced to connect to an existing optical backbone.
"The planning, digging and installation that is needed for traditional fibre cables requires both a great deal of time and expensive resources," said Kristian Nilsson, Network Manager at Alingsas Energi. "Therefore, we chose NEC's wireless broadband connection via the iPASOLINK EX-Advanced microwave link. This proven solution has quickly provided the residents of Mossberg with a strong and reliable broadband connection that also promises to meet our future needs with a link capacity of 10Gbps, the first such powerful wireless broadband connection in Sweden."
NEC's iPASOLINK EX-Advanced solution provides the following:
- A High profile wireless broadband connection provided in a turnkey solution for the transport of reliable, highly connected Triple-Play-Services, the iPASOLINK EX-ADVANCED is a natural fibre extension with 10GbE optical interfaces and Layer-2 tunnelling features for transparent fibre activity.
- A rapid and cost effective 10Gbps deployment due to its seamless connectivity with optical transport networks in shorter time-to-market as well as the availability of light-licensed 80Ghz spectrum.
- Overturns the image of E-band during rain and snow with adaptive modulation and bandwidth features that maximise the transmission capacity of the 80GHz spectrum and extend link reliability.
- A compact, durable and lightweight body that is ideal for outdoor installation - no need to rent additional indoor space.
