WaveTek proffers solution for fast Internet connectivity
The poor services recently experienced in the Information Communications Technology (ICT) industry may not improve soon until telecoms operators explore the option of virtual fibre solutions to deepen Internet penetration and improve quality of service delivery.
This was the submission of the Managing Director, WaveTek Nigeria Limited,Ken Spann, who had worked in Microsoft for over a decade both in Nigeria and the United States (U.S.) over the weekend in Lagos. He lamented that there were several applications developed by the software giant that could not work in Nigeria because there was no enough Internet capacity.
According to Spann; “Despite the great software Microsoft and others produce, it was frustrating that much of it is not available for Nigerians due to the lack of ubiquitous, affordable Internet,” he said during the presentation of WaveTek E-band forum in Lagos.
Speaking on the solution, he said: “Our point-to-point high-capacity wireless solutions offer high performance, cost-effective alternatives to fiber circuits for mobile backhaul, service provider, network extensions, and government / municipal network applications.
However, it provides fiber-equivalent connections between locations by transmitting data over microwave or millimeter wave frequencies at gigabit speeds (2 Gbps) with future upgrade up to 10 Gbps and has the advantage of add/drop data ports, optional wire-speed AES encryption built-in and provides redundancy for existing fibre network.
“Our solutions are applicable to meet enterprise needs such as server centralisation, remote data storage and backup and leased line replacement.
He outlined its benefits to include the utilisation of Green Field Spectrum band for enhancement of quality of service (QoS)., adding that as backhaul and last mile, customers are also able to carry up to 2Gb within every seven kilometers depending on customer availability requirement, thereby increasing its coverage.
