Namibian telecommunication firm introduces cutting-
edge wireless broadband technology in Zambia 

LUSAKA Zambia (Xinhua) -- Namibia’s telecommunication operator on Thursday announced the installation of its cutting-edge wireless broadband technology in Zambia which reduces signal interference and enables greater coverage with less infrastructure.

Paratus Telecom Group, one of Namibia’s privately-owned telecommunication firm which operates in Zambia under its subsidiary Paratus Telecom Zambia, said the JET Bi-Directional Beamforming PtMP base station system supplied by global wireless broadband provider Radwin will provide high-capacity last-mile connectivity to residential and enterprise users in Zambia.

Marius van Vuuren, country manager for the Zambian subsidiary said the company selected JET after a thorough competitive evaluation.

“JET is a quick-to-market solution at a fraction of the cost of fiber. One of the biggest network challenges is interference, mainly in densely populated areas. This is largely due to many our points-of-presence and high sites being shared with other operators,” he said in an emailed statement, adding that the technology will fight interference and allow the firm to provide greater coverage with less infrastructure.

With JET PtMP, it can deliver up to 50 Mbps at ranges of up to 15 kilometers, even in challenging non-line-of-sight (NLOS) conditions where direct line-of-sight is obstructed by buildings or trees, he added.
