RCR Wireless News sat down with Paul Ives Choiseul, chief technology officer at Latin American operator IBW to discuss the carrier’s decision to deploy WiMAX technology. The Costa Rican wireless operator is targeting the financial industry with WiMAX technology as a DSL alternative to carry the nation’s bank’s digital traffic as a safeguard to back up the information in case of a natural disaster.
IBW, which also has operations in Nicaragua, El Salvador and Guatemala, is using 802.16e technology to provide businesses communications, but eventually expects to target consumers as well, said Paul Ives Choiseul, CTO of the company. IBW started testing WiMAX technology in early 2009 and was satisfied it could meet government requirements to provide secure communications to the banking institutions.
