Leading all of the countryâ€™s provinces and municipalities in gross domestic product, exports, retail sales and industrial output, Guangdong Province is at the heart of Chinaâ€™s trading success. Bordering Hong Kong in southern China, Guangdong is Chinaâ€™s largest recipient of foreign direct investment and generates the countryâ€™s highest international tourism earnings. To provide effective telecommunications service to this important province, Guangdong Unicom â€“ a fully integrated telecommunications operator in China â€“ chose to deploy Proximâ€™s broadband wireless networks.
For Chinaâ€™s entrepreneurial Guangdong Province, with approximately 85.2 million residents, access to high-quality voice and data telecommunications is critical to supporting business and social growth. Yet, in countries with growing subscriber populations, installing copper or fiber networks is a difficult and expensive proposition. High costs, availability challenges and lengthy deployment times present insurmountable obstacles â€“ as do geographical barriers.
Guangdong Unicom, a provincial subsidiary of China Unicom Limited that provides services throughout China, worked with Jin Peng Group to select Proximâ€™s Tsunami MP point-to-multipoint broadband wireless solutions to deliver Voice over IP and Internet connections all through cities in Guangdong Province. Guangdong Unicom chose Proximâ€™s Tsunami MP because of its high capacity, flexibility and fast, simple installation. Guangdong Unicom is the first provincial operator to deploy a large-scale network in the 5.8 GHz spectrum, and the Tsunami MP solution constitutes Chinaâ€™s largest high-capacity wireless network.
Jin Peng Group, one of Chinaâ€™s largest IT resellers, supplied 180 Tsunami MP base station units for the project and continues to provide maintenance services and technical support for Proxim products to Guangdong Unicom.
