Tel Aviv, Israel, July 12, 2018, RADWIN (www.radwin.com), the global wireless broadband provider, today announced that AfricaOnline, one of the largest ISPs in Nambia, has launched a wireless broadband network powered by RADWIN’s JET 5GHz Point-to-Multipoint (PtMP) smart Beamforming solutions. AfricaOnline has complemented its long-standing WiMAX service with a new carrier-grade JET PtMP service to deliver high-speed packages of up to 100Mbps to enterprises and homes in Namibia’s capital, Windhoek. AfricaOnline is a member of the iWayAfrica group of companies, owned by Gondwana International Networks. Rampoint, a leading turnkey solution provider in Namibia and RADWIN’s partner, was in charge of project design and implementation.
Marc Gregan, Managing Director, AfricaOnline Namibia: “Demand for broadband is growing at an explosive rate. Users want more Gigabytes to satisfy their Internet and social media appetites. We needed to expand our capacity and selected the 5GHz JET which allows us to offer capped, uncapped and dedicated service packages at speeds of up to 100Mbps to suit every user and support a range of applications – from streaming video to online gaming and Internet browsing. Delivering exceptional performance and consistent high capacity, JET operates even in congested unlicensed bands and areas with a high noise floor. Our customers are ecstatic.”
