Semirara Coal Mine in Philippines Deploys RADWIN's Wireless Broadband Solutions

RADWIN's High-Capacity Point-to-Point Solutions Operate Non-Stop in Harsh Conditions

TEL AVIV, Israel, April 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

RADWIN (http://www.radwin.com), the global provider of sub-6 GHz broadband wireless solutions, today announced that the RADWIN 2000 high-capacity point-to-point solutions were chosen and deployed by the Semirara Mining Corporation - the largest coal mine in the Philippines. The Semirara coal mine is using RADWIN 2000 systems to create a private network to provide voice and data services to offices scattered across the mine site. EBDI, a leading system integrator based in the Philippines, was selected by Semirara Mining Corporation and managed the entire installation.

George San Pedro, Semirara Mining Corporation's mine site Resident Manager: "This network is extremely important as it provides the basis of our communications in the mining site. Therefore we had to select a networking solution that would provide the utmost capacity, performance and robustness to withstand the harsh conditions in the coal mine and the volatile weather in the Philippines. RADWIN's equipment was installed in record time, and we are very pleased with the equipment's performance and durability. Even when typhoon Haiyan hit the area, RADWIN's systems weathered the super force and continued to provide us with the high-capacity connectivity that we have come to rely on."

RADWIN 2000 point-to-point solutions deliver 250 Mbps net throughput for long ranges and incorporate advanced technologies such as OFDM, MIMO, a unique air interface to mitigate interference and operate in non-line-of-sight (NLOS) scenarios.

EBDI Philippines General Manager, Gilbert Paggabao: "When Semirara turned to us to connect dispersed mining offices we knew that only RADWIN's radios were up to the challenge. RADWIN's solutions perform exceptionally well, especially considering the harsh environment of the island and the humidity, salt and coal particles that are abundant in the coal mines."

Maurice Illouz, RADWIN's General Manager APAC: "Our equipment has been a trusted source of communications for mining, utility and federal government agencies as well as humanitarian relief operations that require high-performing, reliable and rapidly deployable systems. We have an extensive track record in serving the mining sector with solutions for both fixed and mobile applications, and we are proud to count the Semirara coal mine amongst our rapidly expanding customer base."
