Alvarion Ltd, a provider of wireless broadband solutions, has announced that Dukcom LTDA, Alvarion's partner in Colombia, has selected its carrier-grade Wi-Fi solution to deliver data, video and voice services in two rural networks in Antioquia and Atlantico, Colombia.
"We selected Alvarion's Wi-Fi solution for these two rural networks due to the unmatched coverage, capacity and quality of service their base stations provide as well as the scalability of their solution", said Carlos Duque, General Manager, Dukcom. "We are very pleased with our choice which enabled us to easily provide connectivity to tens of thousands of new users who previously had limited Internet connection."
In Atlantico, Dukcom worked with the regional telephone provider and ISP to deploy a Wi-Fi network in 19 small cities, providing coverage to businesses, households and tourists. The network provides coverage to 60% of the residents of each of these cities at lower cost and up to 50% better speed than previously available through cellular modems. Alvarion's solution enables the service provider to expand the network as needed to reach 100% coverage, Alvarion said.
In Antioquia, Dukcom worked with the regional telephone provider and ISP to connect the main plaza in 115 different small cities across the province to deliver free Wi-Fi to residents and visitors. The network is part of the regional ISP's commitment to provide connectivity to rural areas in Antioquia.
"Connectivity is key to enabling rural communities cross the digital divide, helping them gain access to resources previously difficult to reach. We were pleased to work with Dukcom to give them the right solutions for their customers," said Zeev Farkash, executive vice president of sales at Alvarion. "Alvarion's extensive experience in rural broadband deployments and the breadth of solutions in multiple technologies enables us to tailor the best-fit solution for the customer, depending on their scale, capacity, and quality of service demands."
