InfiNet Wireless to showcase its latest Smart City solutions at AfricaCom 2017

InfiNet Wireless, the global leader in fixed broadband wireless connectivity, will showcase its cutting-edge Smart City solutions portfolio at AfricaCom 2017, an event taking place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC), South Africa from 7-9 November 2017.

Addressing the mission-critical needs of public security, traffic management and optimisation, remote environmental and health monitoring, InfiNet Wireless’ portfolio is uniquely positioned to deliver the robust and reliable infrastructure that is essential for any Smart City project.

“We now find ourselves steeped in the fourth Industrial Revolution – an era that could potentially see every one of us, and every piece of technology we use, seamlessly networked together. Every aspect of our lives, from our classroom experiences to our daily commute, is being digitised as we move inexorably towards the Smart City paradigm,” says Kamal Mokrani, Global Vice President at InfiNet Wireless.

“So, what is the blueprint for the smart society? What constitutes best practice? And how can we ensure the foundations are sound enough to support value-adding solutions that revolutionise everyday life?”

InfiNet Wireless has three key benefits which will aid the Smart City implementation across the globe:

Higher Throughput: InfiNet Wireless provides unmatched coverage and throughput. Cost-effective point-to-point solutions provide an unprecedented net capacity of up to 1 Gbps over long distances, in both Line-of-Sight (LOS) and Non-Line-of-Sight (NLOS) conditions. Advanced smart-beam technology in the point-to-multipoint range of solutions mitigates all the known challenges when operating in radio environments with high levels of interference.

Best Quality/Price Ratio: Combining its advanced multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radio technologies with the best data management and transmission protocols available in the marketplace today, InfiNet Wireless allows its customers to benefit from a carrier-grade infrastructure for all their data requirements, supporting bandwidths from as low as 1Mbps up to 1Gbps on a “pay-as-you-grow” basis.

Wide Range of Frequency Bands: InfiNet Wireless solutions support a wide selection of frequency bands ranging from 2.0GHz all the way up to 6.4GHz, all supporting advanced networking features, interference mitigation and full Quality of Service (QoS).

Among the InfiNet Wireless solutions on display at Africa Com 2017 will be the brand new InfiLINK XG 1000 and R5000-Qmxb base station sector. The InfiLINK XG 1000 is now able to provide throughputs of up to 1Gigabit per second over the air in 5GHz license-free frequency bands, effectively doubling the capacity of InfiNet Wireless’ previous highest performing product, the InfiLINK XG.

The new R5000-Qmxb base station sector is an addition to the InfiMAN 2×2 point-to-multipoint family of solutions offering an integrated beamforming antenna to focus the antenna radiation pattern. It is designed for various applications, such as fixed wireless access infrastructure for operators and enterprise networks, including nomadic and mobile functionality.

AfricaCom 2017 is celebrating its 20th anniversary and is the largest event focusing on African telecoms, media and technology, drawing global experts from Africa and beyond to Cape Town.

‘This is our second year at AfricaCom and we look forward to once again showcasing our solutions to the African market. As local governments and enterprises ramp up their investment towards a smarter future, we expect to see a further increase in demand for our wireless solutions and we look forward to sharing our global experience and know-how with individuals and enterprises from across the region at the event,” concludes Kamal.

InfiNet Wireless can be found at Stand C22.
