TNB Telecom uses Mimosa tech to add extra Rio bandwidth

Fixed wireless systems provider Mimosa Networks announced that Brazilian broadband provider TNB Telecom used its backhaul technology to support the significant rise in demand for online services throughout Rio de Janeiro over the past month. TNB Telecom provided high capacity services to locations across the city, including the highly congested Copacabana Beach hotel area where many of the international visitors were located. To serve the 700 percent traffic increase in the region during recent weeks, TNB Telecom deployed Mimosa B5c connectorised radios and B5-Lite backhaul radios, providing the required increase in bandwidth across sites suffering network congestion.

Even during the busiest periods, TNB was able to offer 550 Mbps/450 Mbps in extremely challenging environments with high levels of signal interference and floor noise. Clients received between 20 Mbps to 200 Mbps bandwidth, depending on their demands, said Mimosa. To install the Mimosa backhaul radios around the city, TNB Telecom partnered with its official reseller in Brazil, Click Mobile.
