Telecom Fiji

Telecom Fiji provides over-water broadband and telephony connectivity to remote tropical islands

Telecom Fiji needed to link 37 offshore resorts and islands to the mainland, despite the challenges of transmission over water, tropical vegetation, and long distances, up to 75km, to generate new revenue streams.

Using the Aprisa in the 1400 MHz band, Telecom Fiji achieved reliable broadband Internet speeds of up to 512 kbit/s, with multiple phone / fax lines, providing a range of services including VoIP, VLAN, VPN, video conferencing, PABX, POS and web hosting.

We could see that the provision of reliable Internet and data access would be pivotal to supporting our locally-based tourism infrastructure. We’re really pleased with the feedback from our customers. The resorts have reliability, which is vital, and speeds well above that achieved with dial-up connections. The Aprisa microwave radio has proved a cost-effective, reliable solution.
