Advantech Wireless is raking in the cash in Latin America. The Canadian-based VSAT manufacturer announced last Friday that it bagged a new $3 million contract from a Latin American telephone company.
The Advantech customer was undergoing significant expansion of its communications network in order to support multiple services like enterprise, COTM, mobile backhaul, and NGN nodes. The customer ordered a number of C-band and Ku-band VSAT equipment models. Models cited for purchase and installation include the S4120 Advanced DVBS2-RCS VSAT and the S5420 DVBS2-SCPC or RCS Adaptive VSAT. All units feature Advantech Wireless LNB and BUCs, and they will also have complete IFL and Antenna kits. These VSAT systems will use the customer’s own space segment and infrastructure.
Advantech had already successfully filled a recent order worth $2.4M from the same customer. The combined contracts amounted to more than 3500 VSAT earth station equipment purchased and/or covered. Advantech Wireless will also provide cellular backhaul, COTM, Internet and other IP Enterprise Services, VoIP, VC, and Video Distribution, and Residential Services.
