July 14, 2016

RADWIN, the global provider of sub-6 GHz broadband wireless solutions, today announced that AfricaOnline Ghana Ltd, a subsidiary of the PAN African based internet service provider, iWayAfrica, and part of Gondwana International Networks – a leading ISP based in Accra – has selected and deployed RADWIN’s groundbreaking JET 3.5 GHz Point-to-MultiPoint solution. Designed with smart beamforming antenna technology, RADWIN JET provides long-range access connectivity with secured SLA to enterprise customers.

 

During the first phase of deployment the RADWIN JET-based network will cover the capital city of Accra and in the second phase will extend to the outlying cities of Kumasi, Takoradi and Tamale.

 

Kwadwo Ohemeng Asumaning, Managing Director of AfricaOnline Ghana: “As the leading ISP servicing the Corporate and SMB markets in Ghana we are committed to deliver a reliable SLA service. We therefore selected best-of-breed equipment to implement in our network and RADWIN JET exceeded our stringent technical and business requirements. JET mitigates interference stemming from competing network equipment in Accra, empowering us to offer mega-speed broadband to our corporate clients. Couple that with the outstanding support we received from Gondwana International Networks and we have a winning solution on our hands.”

 

Guy Schalker, Group CTO of Gondwana International Networks: “JET is a truly remarkable solution that operates in virtually every environment, including noisy unlicensed spectrum, non-line-of-sight conditions and extreme weather. JET overcomes these challenges to deliver the highest throughput in the industry.”

 

Raymond Forado, RADWIN GM Europe, North and West Africa: “JET is rapidly becoming the preferred choice of leading service providers and carriers thanks to its superior air interface and Smart Beam-Forming antenna technology.
