TEL AVIV, Israel, September 15, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- RADWIN (http://www.radwin.com), the global provider of Backhaul and Broadband Wireless Solutions, today announced that Jackpersad Partners Radiology Inc., a state-of-the-art radiology center serving hospitals and clinics in the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa, deployed RADWIN's wireless links. RADWIN's links create a wireless network for the transfer of large data files such as X-ray images and patient records between the medical center's branches and the head office. Fibretronic, RADWIN's distributor in South Africa and First Technology, a leading system integrator based in South Africa, were in charge of project implementation.
RADWIN's wireless network covers a geographical distance of over 600 Km and connects remote medical branches by an extremely long link deployed over 95 Km. Fibretronic Sales, a RADWIN distributor based in South Africa, together with First Technology, an Authorized RADWIN system integrator, designed and implemented this privately owned wireless network which currently runs over 40 RADWIN 2000 and WinLink 1000 radio links.
Dr I Hansrod, the Medical Director at the Jackpersad Radiology Center, stated: RADWIN's links have exceeded our expectations in terms of capacity, security and robustness. The bandwidth provided by the wireless network has been phenomenal and we are able to transfer massive amounts of data files and x-ray images in seconds. It is a great setup and the first time that our application is totally paperless.
Shaun Cothill of Fibretronic stated: RADWIN's links have performed flawlessly in both urban locations and remote areas since their installation, delivering extremely high bandwidth to meet the radiology center's current and emerging network needs. We are proud to be a part of this project and have set a precedent for carrier class wireless backhaul.
Clinton Pillay of First Technology stated: The implementation of RADWIN's equipment was seamless and there is minimal maintenance and support, securing a fantastic return on investment. First Technology is honored to be affiliated with Fibretronic and RADWIN and foresees a long and fruitful relationship ahead.

By choosing to go wireless, organizations can eliminate the high recurring charges of leased lines and they own and control their network connectivity.
