Cable Color, the leading Cable Operator in Honduras, has recently installed a Gigabit microwave link covering a distance of 70 Km over the ocean.
The link provides ultra-high capacity IP connectivity between the mainland and the island of Roatan, off the coast of Honduras. Operating in licensed bands, it replaces older lower capacity links that were operating in the license-free band but that were prone to downtime due to interference and other issues.
With a capacity of 1.5 Gigabits, the full duplex link can be operated in the “link aggregation” mode or in the hot-stand by mode depending on traffic conditions.
Cable Color performed the installation and commissioning of the link, including the mounting of 2,4 meter diameter antennas at a tower height of approximately 80 meters.
According to Maynor Amaya, head of data engineering at Cable Color, “the link performance has surpassed all of our expectations and we are very pleased to be able to provide an extremely reliable service to our customers.”
