Intracom bags private network deal with Botswana’s government

Intracom bags private network contract with Botswana’s government

The government of Botswana is upgrading its private wireless transmission network using Intracom Telecom’s OmniBAS microwave product family.

The upgraded network will be used to support a wide range of broadband services to efficiently carry all telecommunication traffic - including voice, video and data - with full wireless and management redundancy, as well as backhauling the private TETRA network.

The contract win follows an international tender, and will see Intracom supply its OmniBAS radios via its local reseller Nextlan. The wireless transmission platform includes compact high-performance outdoor and indoor units delivering reliable 4096-QAM two-way transmission, and a leading link budget for high availability.

John Tenidis, Marketing Director of Intracom Telecom's wireless solutions portfolio, stated: “Our OmniBAS microwave product family has been chosen repeatedly for mission critical applications and sensitive communications. Local support and services by Nextlan are crucial to our success in the Botswanan market and we are committed to continue delivering the best technology to our growing list of satisfied customers.”
