suRed Selects Mimosa Networks to Deliver Chile’s First 5G Fixed Wireless Service

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Mimosa Networks, the leader in 5G Fixed wireless solutions, announced today that Chilean telecommunications company, suRed, has selected Mimosa for its new 5G Fixed Wireless service in Southern Chile. Targeting subscriber speeds of up to 50 Mbps, suRed will deploy Mimosa’s entire suite of Access, Client and Backhaul solutions to build out its new high-speed network.

An innovative player in Chilean telecommunications, suRed offers urban and rural “Double Play” solutions for businesses and consumers. With over 8,000 subscribers, suRed is looking to complete a 5G network expansion which will see them scale to over 35,000 subscribers in two years. suRed, in consultation with wireless distributor Streakwave Wireless, identified Mimosa as a partner that could keep pace with its rapid subscriber growth and the high-speed demands of streaming video traffic. With the Mimosa solutions, suRed will increase subscriber speeds from 12 Mbps to 50 Mbps, with options for 100 Mbps service in the future.

“Mimosa changes the way internet is delivered. We are excited to partner with such a forward-thinking technology company,” said suRed Executive Director, Claudio Armijo Bustamante. “With Mimosa, we will be able to efficiently serve new subscribers and provide the quality and speeds they demand. Mimosa is a perfect fit for our vision of closing the digital divide by bringing broadband internet to rural communities.”

The suRed network covers a geographic area of 4,722 square miles in the Lake Region of Southern Chile, an area covered by deep valleys, mountains, and lakes, which can be challenging when deploying a network. Mimosa’s hybrid-fiber-wireless (HFW) technology is precisely designed to excel in challenging terrain, significantly improving the time to market and lowering the costs involved with providing service to subscribers. suRed will deploy Mimosa B5 backhaul radios, Mimosa B5c connectorized radios, Mimosa B5-Lite radios, licensed Mimosa B11 backhaul radios, Mimosa A5 access points and Mimosa C5 client devices.

“We are thrilled to team with suRed on this exciting deployment,” said Brian Hinman, CEO, Mimosa. “Latin America is an exciting region of growth for wireless technology. We are committed to providing the most robust and scalable solutions possible to meet the needs of this emerging market.”
