New Zealand-based wireless solutions provider, 4RF, has expanded into the Middle East with a deal to supply its Aprisa technology to the Ministry of Communications in Kuwait.

The Ministry has deployed the point-to-point access solution to roll out voice and data services to new suburban developments, and to link newly-constructed homes without existing wireline services to local exchanges.

The digital links, which operate in the UHF and 1350-1550 MHz bands, are also being installed to replace analogue solutions connecting payphones and buildings in rural areas.

4RF recently set up offices in Dubai to serve the region and has inked distribution deals in countries including Kuwait, Bahrain, Lebanon and Turkey to support its expansion.

"The market for digital access and microwave wireless in this region is growing due to the ever-increasing numbers of mobile users and the lack of good wireline infrastructure in some countries," says Tony White, 4RF sales director.
