Manama, Kingdom of Bahrain; Sophia-Antipolis, France, July 2nd 2012 –
Bahrain Broadband, operating one of the first eco-friendly wireless networks across the globe under the brand name Greenisis, has selected 3Roam products and services for the deployment of its backhaul network over Bahrain.
Evolving in a highly competitive environment, Bahrain Broadband required rapid and safe deployment, while operating in a technically challenging environment.
3Roam was able to provide a 100% outdoor network set-up thanks to its leading AERO product. AERO’s integrated Gigabit switch has been key to combine both incoming traffic in addition to the local base-stations on all outdoor sites.
AERO has also been offering first-class network uptime even though Bahrain’s climatic conditions are one of the most difficult transmission environments on earth (up to 50°C, 90% humidity and heavy sand winds). Furthermore, due to Bahrain’s congested spectrum, the entire backhaul network has to operate in the least favorable 38GHz bands.
In addition to AERO products, 3Roam has been providing design and planning services to Bahrain Broadband for its backhaul network. Thanks to its custom engineering proposal, 3Roam helped provide maximum link availability and keep deployment costs on target.
“We are very satisfied with 3Roam’s products quality and the superior network uptime they provide. Beyond their products, 3Roam have entered a real partnership with us and contribute to the high-quality standards of services we offer to our broadband customers”, declares George El-Aily, CEO of Bahrain Broadband.
