CBO selected for ICT contract in Solomon Islands

Friday 23 November 2012 | 04:40 CET | News
Australian networking company CBO Telecommunications has been awarded a contract worth AUD 3.25 million for the ICT project ever undertaken by the Solomon Islands Government. The company is tasked with building a Metro Area Network (MAN) as a single-use network for public sector agencies. Working with local Solomon Islands' partner Satsol, as well as Cambium Networks, Opengear and APC, CBO Telecommunications will build the network using Point-to-Point OFDM links, and Point-to-Multipoint using the Wimax wireless communications protocol which will connect over 80 locations. The deployment project includes the design, installation and management and support of the entire MAN network. The installation is expected to be complete by March 2013, followed by a three year maintenance and support agreement. The project will allow the Government to deliver a uniform set of ICT services to all 26 Ministries in more than 80 locations across the capital; Honiara. The network will help the Government to improve inter-government communications, and roll-out a suite of IT applications.
