MILAN -- Telefónica, through their brand Movistar Chile, in a continuous effort of improving its 4G network, deployed SIAE MICROELETTRONICA’s multiband solution. Movistar Chile aims to continue increasing the mobile backhaul capacity and improve the overall network reliability due to a strong traffic growth.

The SIAE MICROELETTRONICA’s multiband solution coupling a traditional frequency band (15GHz) with an E-band link (80GHz), offer multi-gigabit capacity with no compromises on distances. With this solution Movistar Chile provided fibre-like capacity to both access sites and seamlessly closed an aggregation fibre ring for improved performances.

At a renowned ski location the ever-growing capacity generated during the winter season convinced Movistar to replace the 18,6Km older microwave link with SIAE MICROELETTRONICA multiband solution delivering four times the original capacity.

“The deployed multiband solution is the first of its kind in the network, taking fibre-like capacity to sites without the associated costs of deploying fibre, in a fraction of the time” says Luigi Lovati, Telefonica Global account manager in SIAE MICROELETTRONICA adding, “E-band and multiband solutions quickly and cost effectively solves the high capacity connectivity needs to those places where fibre can’t reach like in the mountains. Due to the Chile’s terrain conformation, this solution proves to be a strong enabler for Telefónica network modernization program”.
