Harris Stratex Networks has been selected by Wataniya Telecom Maldives to upgrade its core transmission network to provide multiple SDH trunks across the islands. As part of the contract, Harris Stratex Networks will supply the new TRuepoint 6500 all indoor radio, together with network consulting and turnkey services, taking responsibility for the complete upgrade of the network.
The Harris Stratex solution will provide more than three times the current capacity, with the option to extend this to seven times the current capacity.
With the TRuepoint 6500, a complete Harris Stratex Networks ProVision Element Management System (EMS) will be installed for Wataniya, providing monitoring and control of the complete microwave network and associated devices. A critical part of the Harris Stratex Networks solution is the comprehensive range of services provided, including network design, equipment logistics, installation, commissioning, and detailed operator and maintenance training.
"Wataniya Maldives is committed to providing new and innovative services to our customers. Harris Stratex Networks was able to offer the equipment and installation services necessary for Wataniya Maldives to deliver on that commitment," said Mr. Abraham Smith, Chief Operating Officer of Wataniya Telecom Maldives. "We are excited to work with Harris Stratex Networks in developing a transmission network which will support the high speed data needs of our new 3G+ network, and deliver the speed and reliability that our consumer, business, and government customers deserve."
