Westica Targets Southern Africa with Jasco
Digital Radio Supplier Signs Jasco Telecom as Distributor

Leading supplier of point-to-point, microwave radio systems, Westica Ltd, announces a distributor agreement with Jasco Telecom. Based in Johannesburg, South Africa, Jasco will be primarily targeting Southern Africa with Westica’s 1.4GHz Multirate Radio System, enhancing the Scottish based company’s international presence. Westica has already prospered through its relationship with Jasco following the successful sale and delivery of a number of Westica systems for use within networks in Southern Africa.

The Westica solution provides robust and reliable digital transmission carrier using the 1.4GHz frequency range, compatible with all of today’s standard network infrastructure equipment. In essence, the Multirate Radio System includes all the features, functionality and flexibility required to deliver reduced installation burden, reduced test equipment requirements, reduced maintenance responsibilities and most importantly reduced whole-life costs.

Chris Grove, CEO for Jasco Telecoms, comments, “We recognised instantly the potential requirement for the Westica solution in Southern Africa. It’s a logical and cost effective means of communication, particularly within rural areas where the laying of cables is practically impossible and has heavy associated costs.”

Users can also be confident that the 1.4GHz band enjoys total immunity from atmospheric weather conditions like rainfall, humidity and fog, making it ideally suited for use in virtually any country around the world. With superb range performance, up to and in excess of 50km, the user also enjoys the benefit of excellent diffraction characteristics allow link performance over partially obstructed paths, as well as reduced susceptibility to fading on long paths.

To see the Westica 1.4GHz Multirate Radio System for yourself, visit Jasco Telecom at the International West African Communication and Broadcasting Exhibition, 18th to the 20th June 2002, Lagos , Nigeria on stand C11.
