Did you know that superfast broadband is now coming to the homes of residents living in the beautiful Beara Peninsula, one of Ireland’s hidden gems on the west coast, in the counties of Kerry and Cork?

Yes, 5G ready broadband is fast becoming a reality for rural and regional Ireland. The moment has arrived for the one million plus people who have been patiently waiting for high speed broadband to be made available in their communities.

Tackling this logistical challenge head on is broadband provider, Imagine Ireland, whose fixed wireless network can deliver speeds of up to 150Mbs (with the potential to hit 1Gbps and beyond) to homes and businesses across the Emerald Isle.

How does Alpha Wireless fit into the picture? As a market-leading specialist in designing and manufacturing antenna solutions, our aim is to stay at the forefront of next generation telecommunications networks by producing the level of product quality that will enable our clients to thrive in the fast-moving telecoms industry.

Our partnership with Imagine Ireland is a prime example that demonstrates how we have been able to use our in-house knowledge and expertise to provide powerful and innovative solutions that fulfil three key criteria:

COVERAGE
The beams in Alpha Wireless’s AW3376 8T8R panel antennas used by Imagine Ireland are optimised to provide coverage directly to the user. Data throughput is increased (there is no need for additional bandwidth) and the 90 degree with 0.5 lambda spacing offers the best option for soft split and extended coverage at the cell edge.

CAPACITY
Given the sheer number of people impacted by the network improvements, it was imperative that rural and regional capacity were improved to meet user demand. Our AW3376 family of antennas function seamlessly within the 3400-3800 MHz frequency range, which boosts capacity for wireless networks.

CONCEALMENT
All our solutions are designed to be as discreet as possible, so that they can fit compactly onto any surface without being intrusive or having a negative impact on the local environment. This was an important consideration given the indoor and outdoor usage requirements for Imagine Ireland’s network locations.

Alpha Wireless and Imagine Ireland are on a joint mission to bring faster internet connectivity to rural and regional Ireland.

155 locations (so far). Thousands of square kilometres. Millions of people.

Michelle Bolger, Director of Sales, Alpha Wireless
“We have been supplying the panel antennas that Imagine Ireland are using for the rollout of their fixed wireless broadband, which will considerably boost connectivity for homes and businesses across rural and regional areas in Ireland. It’s an important and proud milestone for the company.”

Mike Stacey, CTIO, Imagine Ireland
“The panel antennas that Alpha Wireless specially designed for us are ideal for our wireless LTE networks. Not only have they enabled us to extend our coverage but also increase the capacity of our broadband network, which is vital given the ever-growing number of devices being used by consumers.”
