“As the data traffic continued to increase, we wanted our network to meet the growing demand for advanced data services,” said Paolo Chilosi, general director, MultiLink. “Nokia Siemens Networks’ extensive experience in network capacity expansion using microwave technology made it a simple choice to select them as our partner.”
“The Caribbean market is an exciting and growing market with different countries at different stages of the telecommunications evolution, but the one constant is the demand for superior data services,” said Michael Jakob, head of fixed networks business development, Caribbean, Nokia Siemens Networks. “Our solutions have expanded MultiLink’s network, supporting the growing demand for advanced data services in Haiti and helping to address low broadband penetration in the country.”
Under the scope of the contract, Nokia Siemens Networks has deployed its market-leading microwave radio network to MultiLink, enabling the operator to roll out the transport network rapidly and address rising data traffic, while lowering operating costs. The solution has enabled the operator’s network to use its bandwidth more efficiently, ensuring an optimal end-user experience.
Nokia Siemens Networks has also supplied power infrastructure components for the operator’s network. The new, power efficient components have provided MultiLink’s network with extended and extremely reliable service during power outages. In addition to providing power protection and backup, the highly configurable power solution is also capable of meeting the operator’s future expansion needs.
