NEC wins major telco microwave contract

NEC Australia will supply its iPASOLINK microwave radio equipment and professional services for an undisclosed Australian T1 mobile operator.

The three-year contract will see the deployment of more than 650 iPASOLINK microwave links and a unified network management system to support 4G+ network expansions and 5G deployments in metro and regional areas.

The estimated total contract value is more than $15 million.

“This major win reconfirms NEC’s expertise and leadership in the microwave radio space,” said Krisztian Som, Head of Critical Infrastructure at NEC Australia.

“Our ongoing investment in product development and market-leading solutions enables operational cost reduction and delivers fibre-like capacity over microwave for 5G networks.”
