Infinet Wireless solutions helped the University of Guanajuato in Mexico to streamline the educational process

Infinet Wireless, the global leader in fixed wireless broadband connectivity, helped the University of Guanajuato, one of the largest educational institutions in the eponymous state of Mexico, to connect its important site with the headquarters and the other campuses. This allowed the empowerment of the education process in the most cost-effective manner, with reliable connectivity in difficult terrain guaranteed.

The University of Guanajuato is a private institution with more than 280 years of history, offering junior college, undergraduate and postgraduate degrees and certificates. It has a presence in 12 municipalities in Guanajuato, with four University campuses and a junior college with 11 schools. Before 2014, the CINUG Tierra Blanca site - Interdisciplinary Centre of the Northeast of the University of Guanajuato, was not connected to the University’s Intranet, which led to the need to call bids for the construction of a system of links that could connect the headquarters located in the north of the State with the headquarters and campus of the university at the same time providing internet access service. It was of vital importance, since the University planned to use the network for academic purposes, such as distance education, use of internal platforms and video conferencing.

Infinet Wireless’ business partner Grupo Delta approached the University and presented a project for the construction of a private wireless network with repeater that could unite the Tierra Blanca site with the closest communication network, starting at the Culiacán Hill, which has an altitude of 2,830 metres above sea level at its highest point, and reaching the municipality of Cortázar, Guanajuato, Mexico.  

Grupo Delta settled on the geographical location, designed the architecture and constructed a sustainable and environmentally friendly repeater, bearing in mind that this is a protected zone. In February 2015 the first wireless links were installed, uniting the repeater on Culiacán Hill with the new repeater and from there to Tierra Blanca making use of the InfiLink PRO equipment, successfully linking the Tierra Blanca center with the University’s head office with a transfer capacity of 200 Mbps. These operated successfully for 4 consecutive years until being replaced in 2019 by the solutions from the Quanta 5 family, with the longest link that the University has which is 105 km, achieving 400 Mbps capacity. It connected Culiacán Hill and Zamorano Hill to the complete satisfaction of users at the University of Guanajuato.

This transition to flagship Infinet Wireless models has allowed the University to fully appreciate the quality of this technology, which boasts many benefits including: a scalable solution for academic use; remote learning and the University of Guanajuato’s intranet; cost effective broadband; 100% improvement in data transfer capacity; significant savings in investment; reliable connectivity in difficult terrain and what is more, allowing students the best connectivity when using internal platforms, internet and videoconferencing.

“We are really pleased to be able to give the best connection to our students and colleagues at the University’s Tierra Blanca site - now they are able to study and work productively at greater speed. We are also grateful for the help and support of Grupo Delta,” says Flavio Herrera Ramos, the head of the Network and Connectivity department of the Management of Services and Information Technology at the University of Guanajuato.

“We wanted to try out Infinet’s PTP equipment because of the company’s experience when it comes to solutions of greater capacity and stability in extreme climate conditions. The Quanta family solutions allowed us to connect the campus with our internal clients and other sites, covering complicated terrain and managing to deliver higher Mbps over a long link of 105 km,” Guillermo Carrillo Gallardo, IT manager at the University of Guanajuato, concludes.

This project came to life with the help of Grupo Delta, a partner of Infinet Wireless. It is a Mexican company based in Mexico City with more than 25 years’ experience in integration; they specialize in finding telecommunication, connectivity, video security and cyber security solutions.  For more than 9 years Grupo Delta has been installing Infinet solutions together with Avantec, the official distributor, and they were responsible for the design, installation, tests, implementation and infrastructure of the University of Guanajuato project.

“To date, the University of Guanajuato has more than 50 Infinet units installed from different families, being completely satisfied with the excellent results, the stability of the products and the integration that has been deployed. This bodes well for the future and persuades us that in time we can change the entire platform to Infinet Wireless solutions,” sums up David Pérez, project director at Grupo Delta.
