Dark Fibre Africa (DFA) owns an extended fiber network, and the unrivalled WiBAS™ Point-to-MultiPoint (PtMP) system is going to be used to extend the network connectivity and maximize the addressed subscriber’s base

Intracom Telecom, a global telecommunication systems and solutions vendor, announced the supply of its WiBAS Point-to-MultiPoint (PtMP) technology to Dark Fibre Africa (DFA), a provider of open-access fiber infrastructure, to enhance DFA’s ability to provide state-of-the-art microwave connectivity solutions to its customers.

DFA’s decision to select WiBAS PtMP technology resulted from the need to offer high-quality wireless last mile access connectivity to their wholesale customers who, in turn, provide connectivity to home and business consumers. Customers of the South African operator will have the opportunity to provide to end users high-speed service, which addresses the need for immediate access while waiting for a fiber service to be installed, or as a permanent solution where appropriate.

DFA owns an extended fiber network, and the unrivalled WiBAS PtMP system is going to be used to extend the network connectivity and maximize the addressed subscriber’s base. More specifically, the operator is going to take advantage of the platform’s superior capabilities, such as its robust performance and high capacity, to satisfy the ever-increasing access demand.

The WiBAS-OSDR hub as well as the WiBAS-Connect terminal are going to be deployed in DFA’s network in the licensed 26 GHz band, aiming to offer high-quality ultra-high-speed broadband services. Furthermore, DFA will be using the advanced network management system, uniMS™, along with the recently introduced RF planning features, so as to optimally design the PtMP network.
