As part of its community development program, Rio Tuba Nickel Mining Corporation (RTN) provided broadband Internet access to Leonides S. Virata Memorial School (LSVMS) in Bataraza, Palawan by expanding its corporate network. RTN engaged the services of NewGen IT Corporation to expand its network by establishing a wireless broadband connectivity between school and the administrative office in their mine site, which already has an Internet connection thru a VSAT satellite link to their Makati headquarters.Considering the distance between the two sites, which is more than 3 kilometers, and the topography in the area, a wireless solution is the least expensive and most flexible solution. The laying of new copper or fiber-optic cables from the mine site to the town site is cost-prohibitive.

Motorola Canopy(r) wireless technology was selected as the preferred solution. Motorola has more than 75 years of radio and communications expertise and their Canopy system is the most popular technology employed by major wireless communication service providers in more than 100 countries worldwide. The Motorola Canopy wireless technology has proven itself to be one of the industry’s most reliable solutions for extending networks. The platform’s combination of advanced technology, simplified configuration, high performance, rapid deployment and remarkable cost effectiveness is unmatched in the industry.

The Canopy system offers Point-to-Point and Point-to-Multipoint solutions. The portfolio includes products that cost-effectively deliver reliable links and higher throughput in Line-of-Sight (LoS), near-LoS and Non-LoS environments. The underlying technologies - based on Motorola’s proprietary design as well as Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) - offer the flexibility to deliver custom solutions for a wide range of consumer, enterprise, carrier and government markets and applications.

Mr. Mr. Norberto R. Reyes, RTN’s VP for Finance, said that “NewGen IT”, a Motorola Authorized Wireless Broadband Partner, “implemented a very cost effective and reliable solution. They made sure that the expansion would not have any adverse effect on our corporate network. As a corporate entity, network security, reliability and performance are our primary concern”

RTN is now planning to expand the network further by connecting a nearby hospital and other affiliated organizations in the area.
