The challengeThe WiMAX network, marketed as ‚AlterNet‘, was launched in Kiev and Kharkov in 2005. The aim is to cover commercial use in all the 26 regions of the Ukraine by the end of 2007. S&T Ukraine was assigned to start development of the WiMAX radio network (Alvarion) and the corresponding backbone network (Cisco).
The projectWiMAX consists of high-speed radio technology for high-speed broadband transfers for use mainly in regions where no conventional broadband supply is possible. This technology allows for transfer speeds of up to 50 Mbit/s within a radius of up to 50 km. S&T Ukraine is one of the leading partners of WiMAX equipment manufacturer Alvarion.
S&T Ukraine has not only been responsible for the initial planning and building the AlterNet network, but also for staff training, supply, assembly, installation of hard and software, the node equipment and maintenance. The project commenced in the spring of 2005 and is now successfully up and running.
