costs. RADWIN’s solutions also deliver real-time video so we can monitor the
activity in each tower site 24/7. Using RADWIN, we have complete control of our

deliver to customers. In choosing RADWIN, Xstrata was able to cut costs and
eliminate expensive leased lines charges while enjoying a solution that
delivers high-quality voice, video and data services on one link,” said Moty
