Fujitsu Supplies Long-Haul Microwave Radio in Western Arctic

Northwestel, a communications solutions provider in northern Canada, has chosen Fujitsu Network Communications to supply its long-haul, packet transport, microwave technology to bring broadband connectivity to communities of the Western-Arctic’s Mackenzie Delta area.

Specifically, Northwestel selected the Fujitsu FRX-3E Long-Haul Microwave Radio System, which supports Ethernet services with up to 4Gbps capacity and offers 16RF channels. Additionally, Northwestel will use Fujitsu’s NETSMART Management System carrier-class software to manage, provision and monitor the FRX-3E. The communications provider already uses the NETSMART Management System to perform these functions in conjunction with previously installed Fujitsu FLASHWAVE Packet Optical Networking Platforms (Packet ONP).
