Cellphone reception has been provided to a remote site in Congo Brazzaville, following the installation of unique advanced communications equipment by Webb Industries.
A MIKOM frequency shifting repeater was installed at Pokola on Congo Brazzaville's northern border with Cameroon to give coverage to a sawmill which is located in the rain forest where some 20 000 people previously had only limited communication. The site is 30 km from the nearest town. Webb supplied, installed and commissioned the entire system using its MIKOM repeater equipment which receives a signal from a BTS site at Ngombe and re-broadcasts to the sawmill.
Webb Industries is an acknowledged leader in the supply of GSM cellphone repeater systems to remote sites and has completed several major projects in inaccessible areas where GSM communications has previously proved impossible. The engineering team spent a week on site to complete the installation. Careful pre-planning was essential as all equipment and personnel had to travel on two separate flights and then by boat up the Sanga River.
Webb Industries foresees potential for such systems in other countries where remote sites require communication systems that are effective but less expensive than satellite phones.
