Czech alternative telecoms service provider GTS Novera says it has launched a new wireless network in Prague based on fixed wireless access (FWA) technology in the 28GHz band. The telco hopes the move will significantly increase the existing capacity of its access network in the capital and plans to target corporate customers with the new FWA system. GTS Novera’s FWA network, which was supplied by Hughes, covers a total of 18 sectors installed at eight locations in the broader centre of Prague. Each sector covers a ninety degree circular sector with the availability range of up to two kilometres. It will be used for internet access and state-of-the-art voice and data services such as direct voice connection or MPLS IP VPNs. ‘Our new wireless network considerably increases and extends the capacity of the existing access network in Prague. The new technologies bring our services closer to an even broader spectrum of our corporate customers demanding high quality of data and voice transfer – we are now capable of fully satisfying their needs,’ said Tomas Budník, Director of Technical Division of GTS Novera. ‘Working with the feedback from our customers, we plan on extending the network further to other cities,’ he added.
