Digital MMDS Operator Univisa, the biggest MMDS operator in Ecuador, has just inaugurated wireless Internet service in the city of Guayaquil and is planning extension of the service to the capital Quito and the rest of the areas served by the MMDS system.The upgrade has been accomplished utilizing the same transmission and repeater infrastructure in place for the existing MMDS system by adding two-way transmission capability.
Univisa’s technical staff planned and executed the system upgrade with DOCSIS wireless technology and components provided by Cable AML.
The system started service utilizing one channel pair but was designed for expansion until the full bandwidth available is fully utilized.
According to William Arcentales, Univisa’s Engineering Manager in charge of designing and implementing the system, “this system has allowed Univisa to provide first-class wireless Internet service to all areas of the city in a record time and without disruption of the digital TV service. We are very pleased with the equipment and assistance provided by Cable AML.”
