Supply, Installation and setting up the broadband connections Education Centers’ Network

Investment in acquisition of necessary infrastructure and equipment which allows for the extension of the broadband to public schools and hospitals, thus they make it possible for there to be access to the Information Society services provided by the Civil Service in an area with a very high risk of digital exclusion.

After the success of RESCAN project for the deployment of the Security and Emergency TETRA network of the Canary Islands’ Government, Técnicas Competitivas  competes with a financially competitive and highly qualified proposal, aimed at achieving the best technologies in the market for the deployment of a broadband WiMAX network.

Técnicas Competitivas has been aimed at creating a technological model inside of the Canary Islands  Autonomous Region. This is a successfully instance for the Canary Islands’ Government for the strategic decision-making within the technological framework, and for the companies and professionals that participate in an Innovative Project, not only from the viewpoint of investment in technological infrastructures, but also as a driver platform for the development of different fields’ services such as Education, Health, etc.. 

Value Added

Técnicas Competitivas also provides the staff on every Island, with comprehensive knowledge about the Base Stations Network where the WiMAX Project is supported. These are the factors which make it possible, not only to use a scale economy –and, consequently, to optimize the costs-, but also, to improve the response periods for the installation and maintenance.
