Wireless Backhaul: RADWIN delivers ultra-fast broadband to remote parts of Ibiza


Serviman Telecommunications, a service provider on the popular islands of Ibiza and Formentera in Spain, has deployed RADWIN’s JET Point-to-Multipoint and RADWIN 2000 D+ PtP systems for wireless backhaul connectivity.

Serviman uses JET PRO to drive high-speed broadband access services of up to 100 Mbps to hotels, businesses and homes on remote parts of the islands, previously underserved by traditional carriers.

José Díaz Sanchez, CTO, Serviman Telecommunications: “Ibiza and Formentera draw an international crowd of tourists so it’s imperative to provide high-speed broadband anytime, anyplace. Traditional operators in the area use ADSL or old copper lines that were trenched more than 50 years ago and failed to provide more than 1 Mbps capacity. We came to the conclusion that wireless broadband was the best technology for serving our customers and decided to invest in RADWIN’s JET carrier-grade systems. Overcoming interference, JET allows us to connect a greater number of subscribers per base station and with much greater capacity.”

Concluded Sanchez: “We are extremely impressed with JET PtMP’s Beamforming technology which fights interference in areas with many tower sites and massive radio noise levels. With JET we can provide service packages from 30 Mbps and up to 100 Mbps, enabling users to surf the Internet at blazing-fast speeds, download content and watch TV and Netflix in HD resolution without interruption. Installation was straightforward and fast and RADWIN’s gear delivers superior performance and stability.”

Raymond Forado, RADWIN GM Europe: “We’re proud to partner with Serviman Telecommunications and work together to drive broadband to remote areas because we believe that in this day and age everyone needs to be connected, regardless of how remote the location. Virtually all companies, hotels, and residents in Ibiza and Formentera can now enjoy the benefits of ultra-fast connectivity thanks to JET.”
