ICT services company NEC Australia has secured a $15 million deal to supply iPasolink Microwave radio equipment and professional services for one of the largest T1 mobile operators in Australia.

Under the three-year contract – with an estimated value of $15 million - with the unnamed mobile operator, NEC will supply and deploy over 650 iPASOLINK Microwave links and UNMS system to support 4G+ network expansions and 5G deployments in metro and regional areas.

NEC says its solution will enable faster 5G network roll out and more reliable mobile telecommunications services to the public, with the network also providing a range of benefits to enterprises such as enhancing agile working and customer engagement, and facilitating emerging technologies for greater efficiency.

The iPASOLINK VR and EX-A range is NEC’s next generation carrier grade radio equipment with fibre-like capacity supporting key features such as sub-band Free High Power ODUs, Netconf, H-QoS, AES encryption, 1588v.2 synchronisation, dual 10Gbps SFP+ interfaces, dual power feed, and dual band antenna options - all key features in next generation network architectures.

"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 deliver fibre like capacity over Microwave for 5G networks.”
