May 2010 Infrastructure

Satinlink Wireless has announced a giant leap in technology with newly released MIMO technology incorporated Wireless Mesh Node, the FT HotPort 7000 series, manufactured by Firetide in the USA. The FT HotPort 7000 wireless solution delivers up to an alleged 400 Mbps throughput.

New MIMO-based products are increasing the performance of the previous generation tenfold, making wireless fibre performance available at a fraction of the cost and time needed for deployment of wired infrastructure.

The MIMO mesh also enables high bandwidth mobile applications such as CCTV, voice and data to enhance productivity of government departments, and provide new capabilities for transportation networks.”

With the introduction of its next generation family of mesh infrastructure, with a latency at 0,9 ms per hop; 1000 VoIP calls per node, greater reliability built in, interference mitigation, intelligent routing, end-to-end QoS or a per flow basis, FireTide has a technology that raises the bar and makes large scale municipal wireless mesh networks possible, without the cost and the delays of installing fibre. It enables easier deployment with integrated spectrum analysis, network capacity planning and antenna alignment tools.

Audrey de Jongh from Satinlink Wireless adds, “So far we have been very impressed with the performance of FT 6000 series, but with this new FT7000 series, we are looking forward with great excitement to bring connectivity to all South Africans at a fraction of the current cost. We can cover large areas and support high speeds, which is one way to bridge the gap between communities and metropolitan areas, as well as offering multiple services on one network.”
