NEC Australia has been selected to supply 10Gbps E-band radio equipment and professional services for telecommunications and Internet services provider Spirit Telecom.

As part of an existing contract, under the deal NEC will supply an additional 70 iPASOLINK EX-A terminals with 10Gbps full duplex throughput over the Spirit network.

NEC says the solution will allow Spirit Telecom to replace expensive and limited capacity fibre lease line services with a partial mesh E-band Microwave infrastructure, which provides more capacity, resilience and fast return of investment.

Spirit Telecom has a significant NEC Wireless backhaul footprint in the Gold Coast through the acquisition of World Without Wires with more than 40 iPASOLINK IX radio terminals deployed to provide high capacity backhaul for corporate voice and data services.

The iPASOLINK EX-A is NEC’s next generation carrier grade E-band radio equipment “with the highest 10Gbps full duplex throughput per terminal, providing fibre-like capacity".

In addition, NEC says the solution supports key features such as H-QoS, AES encryption, 1588v.2 synchronisation, dual 10Gbps SFP+ interfaces, dual power feed options, and ERPS ring protection, which are all key features in next generation network architectures.

"The Spirit Telecom win is another example of NEC’s leadership and expertise in microwave radio solutions. Our market leading 10Gbps Wireless solution enables Spirit Telecom to reduce their operational cost, while increasing resilience in their network,” said Krisztian Som, Radio Solutions business manager at NEC Australia.

“Spirit Telecom has gone through an extensive market evaluation and proof of concept testing and selected NEC as the market leader in this space to upgrade and extend our network coverage in Melbourne with capacity never thought possible in wireless,” said Geoff Neate, managing director at Spirit Telecom.
