Microwave radio transmission networks - Secure connections over the air

Cable-free connections to every valley

Microwave radio transmission is ideal for areas with no cable connection and provides a reliable means of communication in emergencies. It’s a low-cost, highly secure solution.

Would you like to set up a mobile telecommunications network in a remote Ticino valley? Or maybe you need to connect two headquarters, operations centres or command posts using a secondary route? No problem.

Our solutions are characterised by a very high level of availability. And our Network Management Centre (NMC) monitors your microwave radio transmission connections 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our comprehensive nationwide coverage means that if anything goes wrong, our specialists can intervene on site immediately.


Are you looking for locations for your microwave radio transmission antennas? Swisscom Broadcast has more than 450 transmission sites throughout Switzerland available for you to use. With Telehousing Services, your equipment is up and running in no time, with no requirement to invest in your own infrastructure.

Swisscom Switzerland

Swisscom Broadcast implemented microwave radio transmission connections on behalf of Swisscom (Switzerland), which are used to develop basis stations for mobile networks or remote centres for landlines. We occupy from detailed project planning and coordination with public authorities and BAKOM through to the construction, operation and maintenance of the network.

Air instead of glass and copper

Vitra AG

Swisscom Broadcast operates a microwave radio transmission network for Vitra AG, which connects Birsfelden to the German branch in Weil am Rhein. The branch has no data server – instead, all the data for its 400 employees is sent to the headquarters in Birsfelden using microwave radio transmission. Other solutions, such as fibreglass, would have been too expensive and an internet connection would have been too unreliable. Microwave radio transmission was offers the greatest security and is by far the cheapest option.
