TasNetworks gets a Long-Haul Microwave Radio System to deploy new mobile communication services

"We needed a value-for-money turnkey proposition. Fujitsu’s price was competitive, the schedule and timeframes were good and the equipment itself was impressive."

Robert Clerk, Senior Telecommunications Engineer TasNetworks

Customer

TasNetworks is a Tasmanian state-owned corporation with a focus on caring for customers and making their experience easier.

TasNetworks has over 250,000 customers across Tasmania and supplies power from the generation source to homes and businesses through a network of transmission towers, substations and powerlines.

Challenge

TasNetworks’ backbone radio platform was no longer supported and had limited bandwidth. The company wanted to find a robust, market leading, high-speed replacement that could be installed across its rugged and remote terrain.

Solution

After a competitive procurement process, TasNetworks turned to Fujitsu, which tested, configured and installed 18 FUJITSU Network FRX-3 Series Long-Haul Microwave Radio System links to provide communications across its power network as well as services to the Tasmanian government and commercial entities.

Benefit

  • Throughput has increased five-fold, allowing more services to be delivered with faster time to market
  • A five-year support contract with Fujitsu reduces risk and ensures reliability
  • Service visibility and better monitoring of service levels enable issues to be resolved more quickly - improving availability
  • Enhanced functionality allows TasNetworks to easily configure and monitor new services while reducing operational costs
