When Avax SA 410, a telecommunications contractor specialising in telecommunication and fibre optics solutions, experienced fibre cuts and down time due to criminal activity, they turned to MiRO to advise them on possible solutions. MiRO suggested the latest 10Gbps E-band solution by Siklu, a pioneer in carrier-grade mmWave wireless fiber technology.
Hannes Pretorius, owner at Avax SA 410 stated that “The biggest challenge for us, was to deliver fibre-like capacity over extended distances, something traditional wireless systems just can’t deliver. The weakness in the previous solution was that fibre links were cut and vandalized and caused major down time and production loss.” Elaborating on the Siklu’s installation and implementation, Hannes explained: ‘’The installation of the equipment was very simple and easy, but alignment takes a lot of effort and time due to the extremely narrow beam width of the Siklu E-band solution, it’s was definitely worth the time spent, as this is one of the most stable links I have ever used!".
