4G network supplier Alvarion’s BreezeMax Extreme has been chosen by Angola Communications Systems (ACS), a business unit of MSTelcom, to introduce a high-speed wireless broadband network in Angola.

ACS has been providing satellite and wireless broadband services to private and public sectors including banks, government departments and entities across Angola.

The high-speed network, operating in the 4.9 GHz frequency range, will be the first Alvarion’s 802.16e deployment in Angola. ACS’s network will provide a range of broadband services to Luanda business customers, to local municipalities and to various provincial towns and villages as last mile.

“Alvarion’s BreezeMAX Extreme technology, teamed with its commitment to our success, gives us the confidence that we are ready to meet the needs of our diverse types of users consistently and in the long-term,” comments Carlos Carvalho, chief technology officer of ACS. “In such a dynamic market, Alvarion’s experience in Africa and market-leading technology are crucial to successfully delivering this network with efficiency.”

“Expanding beyond a traditional carrier model, service providers like ACS are enabling both rural and urban Africa to move forward at a rapid pace, and we are thrilled to be a part of this transition,” says Eran Gorev, president and CEO of Alvarion. “We look forward to supporting the array of users of this valued customer and to enabling them to meet their customers’ future needs.”
