Chilean telecommunications company, suRed has selected Mimosa Networks for its new '5G' Fixed Wireless solution in Southern Chile. Targeting subscriber speeds of up to 50 Mbps, suRed will deploy the Mimosa 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 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.

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. The Mimosa 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.
