MTN Yemen chooses fSONA to support network infrastructure

Tuesday 15 February 2011 | 11:03 CET | News
MTN Yemen has selected fSONA Networks to install free space optical (FSO) technology in the capital of Yemen, Sana'a, which will support crucial network infrastructure. The wireless link, part of fSONA's E-series, will connect two of MTN Yemen's mobile switching centres. The fSONA 155 E link offers full rate, full duplex bandwidth and provides a convincing alternative to fibre-optic cables that can be expensive and time consuming to lay. Raed Ahmad, MTN Yemen CEO, confirmed that this was the first FSO link to be used within the network by the operator.
