|Proxim Wireless products support all the data and voice connections
Proxim Wireless Corporation, a leading provider of complete outdoor wireless backhaul systems, announced recently that Oceanic Broadband Solutions Pty. Ltd., a leading telecommunications service provider in Asia Pacific, has deployed Proxim’s wireless backhaul solutions to provide connectivity for the National Bank of Vanuatu (NBV). Oceanic deployed Proxim’s Tsunami® QuickBridge MIMO Integrated 8100 products to connect 22 of the bank’s branch office locations.
“When the National Bank of Vanuatu came to us seeking a more reliable, cost-effective solution for connecting their many branch office locations, we knew that wireless was the best way to meet their needs,” said Tony Waters, Director of Oceanic Broadband. “Proxim’s wireless backhaul solutions were a natural fit, as it provides high performance and reliability at a fraction of the cost of fibre solutions.”
As part of the complete wireless solution for NBV, Oceanic has installed Proxim Wireless links from NBV’s head office to their Disaster Recovery Centre, where an Oceanic VSAT HUB is located. The Proxim Wireless products support all of the data and voice connections between all branch office locations while providing up to 15x the performance of previously installed solutions.
Oceanic has utilized a combination of solar, wind and battery technology to provide continuous power for the wireless links, as well as for the NBV branch office locations. As a result, even when storms or natural disasters cut off the power, the wireless network continues to provide service to NBV and its many branch locations.
“Proxim has worked with Oceanic on high performance, mission critical wireless networks in the past, and we are pleased to be able to deliver products for yet another reliable system,” said John Marcos, Regional Sales Manager at Proxim Wireless. “Due to Proxim’s superior indoor and outdoor broadband wireless solution portfolio we were able to provide the right mix of products for a completely customised solution.”
