International telecommunications expert Petr Vodicka, CEO of Alcoma, will be in South Africa next week to launch their latest solution to the issue of noisy radio environments and other problems hindering reliable high capacity microwave backhaul in South Africa.

Brought to South Africa by wireless communication specialist Multisource Telecoms, Vodicka will introduce industry players to Alcoma’s new high capacity carrier grade backhaul data link system, which operates in the freely available, licence free, and uncongested band of 17GHz.

Vodicka wil present the new Alcoma product range at a breakfast seminar to be held on Thursday, January 24 at the Bytes Conference Centre in Midrand.

South African wireless Internet service providers, cellular networks and other organisations dependent on backhaul data link communication transfer systems, such as banks and security companies, have long been forced to operate in the hugely noisy 2.4Ghz and 5.8Ghz environments. This, as well as exorbitant license costs and the inevitable long delays in the issuing of frequencies has led some to resort to piracy. But operating without a licence on a licenced band presents problems of its own.

Czech-based Alcoma, a global leader in the provision of wireless solutions for Ethernet, PDH, and SDH networks has has been designing and producing point-to-point microwave radio relay links and radio equipment for the past two decades. They have shipped tens of thousands of links across Europe to customer that include some of the Global giants in mobile communication. As the sole distributor of Alcoma products in Africa, Multisource is now brings these revolutionary products to the African market.
