QUITO, Ecuador -- Telconet, an Internet Service Provider, has chosen Motorola’s MotoWi4 portfolio to modernize its wireless broadband system in Ecuador by means of the Canopy network deployed in over 110 cities.

The company has over 2,500 subscribers and has deployed a structure of 500 access points and 200 back hauls (FTP 100). With these new deployments, the company can provide customers with speeds of up to 14 MB, thus expanding a window of services by delivering robust broadband to offer Internet, corporate links and voice, video and data over IP services.

As a carrier, Telconet attempted to achieve a stable network based on cutting-edge technology to allow their customers to operate within a reliable environment with their service provider. This is the reason why the Company decided some five years ago to replace their wireless platform with Motorola’s Canopy, becoming the first company in Ecuador to deploy these solutions.

“From the point of view of technology, the Canopy solution provided us with the possibility to rely on a radio with a built-in antenna, which facilitates installation tasks. In addition, we are not talking about Wi-Fi technology adapted to external links but a solution specially devised for customers, like us, who wish to provide stable links” stated Arturo Velasco, Telconet Radiolinks National Manager.
