Electric Cooperative in Philippines rolls out wireless network built with RADWIN


RADWIN, the global provider of sub-6 GHz broadband wireless solutions, has announced that the South Cotabato II Electric Cooperative (SOCOTECO II) in the Philippines has deployed RADWIN 2000 high-capacity point-to-point solutions to connect its office branches spread over a wide geographic area and over-water.

Diagnostic Computer Center, a leading system integrator in the Philippines, was in charge of project installation.

Deoleto E. Presores, Head of Information Technology at SOCOTECO, said, “We required a reliable, high-capacity wireless network and chose RADWIN after an extensive evaluation process. RADWIN 2000 PtP systems deliver high-speed, secure connections and support multiple applications for increased operational efficiency. The systems are rock solid, providing long-range and high throughput while operating in extreme outdoor conditions and tough terrains.” RADWIN 2000 point-to-point systems are powerful and rugged, delivering high capacity of up to 250 Mbps with low latency. Extremely easy to set up, RADWIN 2000 systems incorporate the industry’s smartest air-interface, MIMO and OFDM technologies and operate in challenging conditions including non-line-of-sight and interference.

Speaking on this development, Maurice Illouz, RADWIN General Manager, APAC, said, “We provide a smart and cost-effective alternative to fiber for backhauling in areas where fiber is non-existent or cost prohibitive. With RADWIN’s portfolio of point-to-point and point-to-multipoint systems, energy companies such as the Cotabato Electric Cooperative can establish a reliable wireless network in virtually any location. Rugged and robust, our systems consistently meet the exacting standards required by the energy sector.”
